2023 KTM 350 XC-F Factory Edition First Look: Price

The annual appearance of KTM Factory Editions models is a highlight of every year for off-road fans, and the 2023 KTM 350 XC-F Factory Edition off-road racer is no exception. Based on the standard 350 XC-F, the Factory Edition gets all of this year’s updates, and adds an impressive array of upgrades. Let’s go through them.

  1. The front end gets extra attention. You’ll find orange-anodized KTM Factory triple clamps with adjustable offset grasping the WP Xact fork. The fork is adorned with a Factory holeshot device to help the rider get to the first corner in the lead. That’s a KTM Factory wheel with a D.I.D DirtStar rim, plus a semi-floating 260mm disc protected by a carbon fiber guard; the CNC-machined hub is anodized orange.

  1. The rear of the bike is not ignored. The rear wheel is also a KTM Factory item with a DirtStar rim. Bolted to the orange-anodized hub are a solid 220mm disc and an orange aluminum sprocket.

  1. To save weight and add power, a titanium FMF muffler is installed.

  1. Protecting the motor is a composite skid plate and Hinson clutch cover.

  1. The Factory seat is made by Selle Dalla Valle. The Italian company has been making seats for the likes of KTM, Husqvarna, BMW, Ducati, and MV Agusta since 1970.

  1. In addition to all the goodies with orange anodizing, the 2023 Factory Edition gets its own FMF KTM Factory Racing graphics. There will be no doubt what you’re riding when you line up for a cross-country race.
