When Ryan Dungey switched to the factory KTM team from Suzuki for 2012, and rejoined Team Manager Roger De Coster, the man who helped launch in 2006 Dungey’s professional Supercross/Motocross career, the Minnesota native further solidified his riding dominance.

Piloting the Red Bull KTM SX-F 450, Dungey went secured back-to-back 450 AMA Supercross titles in 2015/16, and also claimed his only 250 AMA Pro Motocross title in 2015.

As it did in the past, the Austrian-based KTM has released for 2017 a 450 SX-F Factory Edition, a replica of Dungey’s SX-title winning motorcycle. But KTM didn’t stop there; it also released a 250 SX-F Factory Edition, which is the bike of choice for the Troy lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM team in the 250 class.

Following are the exact details of each Factory Edition SX-F, courtesy of KTM.

A compact SOHC engine effectively delivers explosive power to the ground, thanks to traction control, launch control and a two-position map switch.

Updated WP AER 48 forks and rear shock elevate the 450 SX-F’s already-stellar handling, while a titanium Akrapovic muffler sheds weight. Top it all off with CNC-machined orange anodized triple clamps, D.I.D. DirtStar rims and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing replica graphics and you have a recipe for success at any level of racing

2017 KTM 250 SX-F Factory Edition

The combination of a powerful and torquey engine in a lightweight and agile chassis is the key to its success. A powerful – yet compact – DOHC engine, refined WP AER 48 forks, orange anodized triple clamps, an FMF titanium muffler, launch control and D.I.D. DirtStar rims make for a READY TO RACE machine that has no equal.
