MURRIETA, CA – May 5, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) –  KTM North America, Inc. is pleased to announce details of the 2022 KTM Motocross and Cross-Country lineup, the most complete and technologically-advanced machinery available on the market. Featuring models that cater to all competitors, the updated KTM SX and XC range is set to cut the dirt and bring championship-winning performance to riders across the world.

After decades of development, courtesy of the close relationship between the race paddock and KTM’s production line, the complete 2022 KTM SX and XC range is closer than ever to the title-winning factory machines of racers like Cooper Webb, Marvin Musquin, Taylor Robert and Kailub Russell. Engineered on the racetrack and meeting KTM’s exacting standards for performance in their updated 2022 livery, the new models are the absolute benchmark for offroad competition worldwide.

Built for those who know the importance of a solid technical base, the KTM SX-F model range is the choice of winners. The 2022 4-Stroke range includes three models that take advantage of KTM’s considerable success in the segment and feature the latest WP XACT suspension technology and advanced electronic solutions including Traction Control, Launch Control, variable engine mapping and reliable starters.

The purest definition of advanced motorcycle technology, the 2022 KTM 450 SX-F is an extremely compact package that produces an unrivalled power-to-weight ratio with power put to the ground in the most effective way possible. Further proof of this formula’s success came this weekend at the final round of the AMA Supercross Championship in Salt Lake City, where Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb earned his second-career title in the 450SX class aboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. As a stablemate to the championship-winning KTM 450 SX-F, the KTM 250 SX-F features unmatched outright speed in a class that pushes the boundaries of 250 cc performance, while the KTM 350 SX-F ideally mixes 250 agility with 450-like engine grunt. Both the KTM 250 SX-F and KTM 350 SX-F feature a new counter-balancer shaft bearing for 2022 to reduce friction and increase durability.

Building upon a legacy of class-leading performance for aspiring and experienced racers alike, the 2022 2-Stroke range includes three distinct models. A benchmark in the division, the KTM 125 SX occupied seven of the 12 top spots in the 2020 EMX125 European Championship. In its updated 2022 trim, the KTM 150 SX can battle with the potent 250 4-Strokes, while the KTM 250 SX is a 2-Stroke powerhouse with the same light feeling.

Based on the same dominant platforms as the SX models, the 2022 KTM XC range takes the best of KTM’s motocross engineering and adds cross-country specific features like large capacity tanks—to power through long offroad circuits—a 21”/18” wheel combination with Dunlop Geomax AT81 tires, WP XACT suspension with XC settings and the ever-convenient side stand.

Often considered the most dominant force in offroad racing, the FMF KTM Factory Racing Team has brought home scores of hard-fought championships aboard the KTM 450 XC-F, KTM 350 XC-F and KTM 250 XC-F motorcycles. These nimble yet powerful 4-Strokes have been specifically tailored for the rigors of offroad competition, and the results speak for themselves.

The 2-Stroke KTM 250 XC TPI and KTM 300 XC TPI models feature industry-leading fuel injection technology and an electric start, accelerating these 2-Stroke weapons well ahead of the pack. The KTM 125 XC, introduced to the XC family last year, also features electric start, making it the ultimate entry point into cross-country competition.

All full-size 2022 KTM SX and XC models feature frames powder coated in racing orange to further reinforce the connection to the championship winning machines of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing stars. The updated frame aligns perfectly with the new blue seat cover and the fresh colors in the graphics to emphasize the close link to KTM’s factory machinery.

Complementing KTM’s 2022 SX range is a series of minicycles that share the exact same race-driven development approach as KTM’s full-size Motocross bikes. Junior riders that climb on any of the KTM 50 SX, KTM 65 SX and KTM 85 SX models can do so knowing that they are experiencing class-leading performance, state-of-the-art WP suspension, high-end brakes and minimal weight. For tech-savvy riders, the wheels can start rolling with the 2022 KTM SX-E 5, the latest incarnation of a high-end electric mini-crosser that can grow together with the young rider on it.

Trying out the 2022 KTM 450 SX-F and KTM 125 SX production models, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing stars and distinguished FIM Motocross World Champions Jeffrey Herlings and Tom Vialle logged impressively competitive lap times. They both share their unbiased feedback in a video intro found on the Motocross Discover page: https://www.ktm.com/en-us/models/mx.html

The 2022 KTM SX and XC models will be available at authorized KTM dealers from May 2021 onwards.

Also:

2022 KTM 450 SX-F receives new rocker arms. According to KTM, the new rocker arms are light and stiffer, resulting in improved throttle response throughout the power curve.

I think I read somewhere they will have a new cylinder head with titanium valves.  At least that's what they are making it sound like.  Maybe this is the same tech that was there last year.

"Compact SOHC (single overhead camshaft) engine with cutting-edge cylinder head featuring titanium valves and new rocker arms with structural optimization to reduce weight and inertia and increase stiffness, ensuring precise, responsive engine performance across the rpm range."

      I have an 06 ktm with a a counter shaft leak problem. Over the past year I’ve had my counter shaft seal changed three times with the third time being a week ago. 2 weeks ago I thought my seal had went after  coming back to oil leaking out of the sprocket. Ive been trouble shooting it leaking for a while and reachanged the seal, o ring, seal drive, and snap ring and bought a thicker sprocket because I knew that can sometimes be a problem. After two rides with absolutely no oil leaked and a dry sprocket I left it the garage and came back to a puddle of oil! I changed the seal so many times and tried everything at this point. Any ideas why it keeps leaking?!

      I have an 04 ktm 125sx. I am curious if there's a way that I can get a clear clutch cover for it. I'm just wondering if there's a company out there that can custom make them or if I'll have to make something myself

      I have a 2020 KTM 300 XC and I just got back from a 30+ mile ride in the mountains. Mostly single and double track. Low rpm stuff with occasional braps. Just cruising. When I got back I noticed a ton of blow off oil from my header/ expansion pipe. Is this possibly the result of the low rpm riding and the oil not burning off? Or do I have a a more serious leak at the pipe connection? Possible an easy fix with new rings and some silicone? Let me know what you guys think. And since I know you're going to ask, all stock bike minus spark arrestor insert from EE and running manufacturer recommend 2T oil.

      I am wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where I could possibly buy the correct sizing of graphics for a 2015 KTM 50 mini sx and a 2019 KTM 85. 
      Thanks so much.

      My 05 200 EXC just had a full motor rebuild and when we started it up it starting making a super loud clicking noise that sounds like it's coming from the powervalve. Does anyone know what is causing this or is it semi normal.
