2012 KTM 350 EXC-F Review
HANDLING OF A 250
FRAME
The new 350 EXC-F's lightweight frame made from high-quality chrome-molybdenum steel is distinguished by an extremely high level of lateral stiffness. SWINGARM, PDS
TELESCOPIC FORK
The sensitive responsiveness and outstanding damping of the open-cartridge fork with 48 mm (1.89 in) outer tubes are a perfect complement for the 350 EXC-F's playful handling and precision.
WHEELS
ENGINE
The new 350 EXC-F's compact, state-of-the-art four-stroke engine excels with an extremely wide usable rev range and the performance of an engine with much greater displacement. CYLINDER HEAD
This elaborate valve train, the ultra-light pistons and the new 350 EXC-F's extremely short-stroke engine facilitate speeds of up to 13,000 1/min.

LUBRICATION SYSTEM
The new 350 EXC-F's engine is equipped with two oil pumps. A pressure pump lubricates the engine and clutch and cools the ignition, while a suction pump draws oil from the crankcase, using it to lubricate the transmission. The Keihin engine management system with electronic fuel injection ensures spontaneous responsiveness and maximum performance from the engine. CLUTCH
