Dirt Rider was out today to get the aboriginal ride on the 2011 KTM 350 SX-F, one of the best talked about machines of the decade. By activity rogue and blank the rules, or guidelines, KTM

has already afresh congenital a bike that fit into the need, acutely answering a catechism a lot of riders accept asked and no one has answered.

The 350 is aloof that, a 350. Smack-dab in the average of area accepted 250Fs and 450Fs are. It is like that in weight feel (245 pounds, abounding of gas) and in power. A abundant abode for the all-inclusive majority of riders who charge added than a 250F has and not as abundant as a 450F offers.The bike has balance and torque, and it is a fast 350, or a apathetic 450 in speed. Unless you rev it, again it is like a fast 450. How? Well, it gets traction. And because it is hooking up it isn’t spinning and it is activity advanced fast. And back we say rev, we beggarly it, the affair sings to 13,000 RPM and we were adamantine apprenticed to use all the abstract or hit the rev limiter, if there is one.
The bike feels a lot added like a 250F than a 450 in weight. It is abundant lighter activity back you are not revving it and there is actual little compression braking. So in some aspects the bike additionally acts like a 250cc two-stroke with a absolutely continued ability spread. The FI was flawless.
