The Big XC-F Enduro: 2021 KTM 450 XC-F
There are three XC-F models in the 2021 KTM line-up: the 250, 350, and 450. We’re here to talk about the largest displacement of the three, the 2021 450 XC-F. This serious off-road enduro bike shares a lot of DNA with KTM’s motocross offerings, but with added versatility to make it a more capable cross-country motorcycle, over a wide range of terrain types. It doesn’t just share DNA with any old motorcycle either: it features many of the same components found on the race-spec championship-winning 450 SX-F too.
The secret to this European-made enduro machine’s success is the compact but powerful fuel-injected, four-stroke, 449cc single-cylinder engine. It has been tweaked for the new year to comply with Euro5 regulations, but without compromising any power. It’s still a seriously potent ride—with approximately 52 horsepower on tap—and an impressive power-to-weight ratio.
What separates the XC-F range from the XCF-W is the suspension setup. Like all KTM motorcycles, WP Suspension handles the suspension duties. However, unlike the XCF-W models that use WP XPLOR units, the XC-F range uses WP XACT hardware instead.
For 2021, the 450 XC-F is available exclusively in KTM Orange.
The 2021 KTM 450 XC-F starts from $10,799 USD / $12,099 CAD.
