FIRST LOOK: KTM 350 EXC-F WESS | News
The 2021 KTM 350 EXC-F WESS is being launched by KTM as a tribute to the thrilling WESS Championship and will cost $17,885.
Featuring WP XACT air forks for the first time on a KTM EXC, along with an impressive list of extra components. The KTM 350 EXC-F WESS features a celebratory livery that pays homage to the diverse challenges of WESS competition. With Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Manuel Lettenbichler enjoying success aboard the 350 on multiple occasions, the reigning WESS Champion also unveiled the KTM 350 WESS in a special video that is now available on KTM’s digital platforms.
It features factory wheels with hubs anodized in orange, a radiator fan and protectors, CNC machined triple clamps in orange, a plastic skid plate, and a grippy Factory seat.
The biggest enhancement on the WESS special edition is seen with the inclusion of WP XACT 48 mm air fork technology for the first time on a KTM Enduro machine. Specifically designed for high-performance offroad use, the latest innovation from WP allows for easy and quick adjustments via the air pressure valve for preload (on the left) or the easy-access clickers for damping (on the right), optimizing suspension settings for different tests or the changing conditions of a long riding day. In addition, the WP XACT fork introduces big weight savings compared to the alternative systems.
The KTM 350 WESS also comes with further additions in the form of a floating front disc with guard, a solid rear disc, a Supersprox stealth rear sprocket, an orange oil plug, grey ODI grips, and a standard map select switch. The all-new WESS graphics and orange frame make this unique machine stand out with a close-to-factory look regardless of the depth of the rut or the size of the rocks.
Joachim Sauer, KTM Senior Product Manager Offroad: “There is exclusivity with each one of our special edition machines and with the KTM 350 EXC-F WESS we set out to provide hardcore Enduro fans with a technical upgrade that will help them thrive on in competition or further enhance their general feeling while riding. With the addition of the WP XACT fork technology for the first time on a KTM EXC, the bike is a fantastic tribute to the skills we see in the WESS championship. For WESS fans and Enduro riders that want unique looks and class-leading 4-stroke performance then this is another unmissable offroad bike that we at KTM are really proud of.”
The new KTM 350 EXC-F WESS will be available in limited numbers at authorised KTM dealers in Australia and New Zealand from January 2021 onwards.
