Less than a month before Anaheim 1 – the opening round of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series that’s set for January 5 – KTM has unveiled the 2019 450 SX-F Factory Edition.

The Factory Edition arrives with upgrades over the standard SX-F 450, and is the base for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing motorcycles that Marvin Musquin and Cooper Webb will compete aboard in the AMA 450SX and 450MX championships.

The limited-edition models arrive with a Pankl five-speed transmission, and are significantly updated over the base SX-F 450 models in regards to suspension and power delivery.

“The KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition is a World Championship-proven machine and the clear weapon of choice for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team,” says Team Manager Ian Harrison.

“This model truly embraces KTM’s ‘Ready to Race’ philosophy and the company continues to prove its commitment through R&D and feedback from the racers themselves. Since 2016, Marvin Musquin has achieved great successes on the KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition and we are setting our sights on big things from him in 2019.

“Cooper Webb is a great addition to the team and he has settled into the new bike quite nicely, so we look forward to great things from him this season as well.”
