2012 new ktm 450 motor

Wow , can`t wait to see how that motor runs. Hope its as good as it looks.

Man that would almost make me sway back over to a 4t.....

did they make the frames narrower? I cant deal with the size (hight and width of frame) of the newer ktms', I own an 08, but I dont like to trail ride with it

From what i know the SXF won´t get the new engine before 2013. EXCF´s ,450 & the "new" 500 (although the same old 510.4 cc) on the other hand will already in 2012.

Impressive!

Will the new 450 SXF engine be based on the 350 architecture?

according to MXA its supposed to be fairly compact, so its a good possibility. but i digress i have been drinking so who knows lol

It looks quite similar to say the least.

I keep hearing it is...That's good, because I'm going back to the 450.

Hmmmmm a more compact 450 that has FI that you can re map (ie for me detune LOLOL)

But then again I do love my 350 !!!

Just love the options and direction KTM is going braaaaaaaaaapppppp !!

A man with a plan ... :thumbsup:

Lets keep our fingers crossed that its coming on the 2012 SX450 model!!!

holy chit!!!

ktm are really leading the way im motox engineering atm. putting honda to shame imo.

love the clutch, love the con rod love the crank design.

hopr the cases hold up without cracking. lets hope there are no design flaws!

Don´t hold your breath though ..

MXA revised their post after a call from KTM...

"KTM did call once this breaking news was released here at MXA, and the Austrians clarified that the EXC is not going to be part of the KTM SXF family"

I actually didn´t get any straight answer yesterday when i asked about this rumor again. The last straight (but now i´m not totally convinced a true one) answer was that the 2012 450 SXF will still have the same engine but that it will get a totally new one for 2013. Who knows what´s really going on in Mattighofen,Austria... :thumbsup:

Before i´m told otherwise ,by people who truly know what they´re talking about and the MXA crew doesn´t count into that gategory, i´m going with the "same old" for 2012 450 SXF though.

It's official. the 2012 sx-f 450 will have a carb, bng, updated clutch and suspension settings...

What did i told you guys. Like two months ago. No FI !!

The only real update for the engine is that belleville washer clutch. It also has updated intake valves for some reason. The 2013 450 SXF will have the new engine and i hope they make it in the 510cc configuration for SXF as well and not just for the EXCF line ...

What would be the benefit of the bellevile washer clutch on the old engine? Lighter pull? Will the clutch cover/ engine be sleeker, as well?
