KTM has revealed its six-model 2022 Cross-Country lineup. They range in price from $7799 for the two-stroke 2022 KTM 125 XC to $10,999 for the flagship four-stroke 2022 KTM 450 XC-F. Other than new graphics for all six models—three each of two-stroke and four-strokes–changes are few for 2022. However, there are some functional updates, so let’s take a look at them.
2022 KTM 450 XC-F. There are new rocker arms in the top-end of the SOHC four-valve motor. According to KTM insiders, the updated rocker arms are both stiffer and lighter, for improved performance.
2022 KTM 350 XC-F and 250 XC-F. The balancer shaft for the DOHC four-valve motor gets a new lower-friction bearing. KTM tells us the improvement shows up at higher rpm.
2022 KTM 300 XC TPI and 250 XC TPI. Other than the aforementioned new graphics, the fuel- and oil-injected 2022 KTM 300 XC TPI and 250 XC TPI two-strokes are unchanged from last year.
2022 KTM 125 XC. KTM gave its carbureted two-stroke tiddler a new 50-tooth rear sprocket to give it a higher top speed for 2022. It replaces a 51-tooth sprocket.
In addition to full specs, we also have the photos of the 2022 KTM Cross-Country lineup, as well as prices.
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
