2021 KTM 350 EXC-F

In recognition of the achievements of the greatest athlete in Grand National Cross Country racing, KTM produces a special edition of Kailub Russell's race bike, the KTM 350 XC-F KAILUB RUSSELL. The combination of fast, usable power and 250-esque handling means this machine is a fierce foil for Offroad competition. The KTM 350 XC-F KAILUB RUSSELL is a close as KTM fans will get to the seven-time GNCC champion and two-time ISDE winner's race machine. Aside from the tuned engine featuring a Hinson clutch cover, the light, orange-painted chassis and high-quality WP Suspension system, this special model offers a slew of details and technical highlights. From the FMF slip-on silencer to the larger tank, to the 'factory' parts such as orange-anodized triple clamps, wheels, Selle Dalla Valle seat, semi-floating front disc and solid rear disc and front brake disc guard. The motorcycle is a stunning sight thanks to the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing colors and other select add-ons. The #1 number plate is the crowning touch.

Power and torque


Featuring a compact and lightweight (60 lbs) construction, this DOHC (double overhead camshaft) design boasts lightweight titanium valves and Diamond-like Coating (DLC) cam followers allow for lively power across the rev range. Fitted with an FMF muffler, the KTM 350 XC-F KAILUB RUSSELL pumps out big power, but remains as nimble as a smaller machine, making it the perfect middleweight monster.



Optimal flex characteristics


The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and excellent stability. You can also count on high torsional rigidity and low longitudinal stiffness. This results in better absorption of the energy created from the front and rear suspension, sucking up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight aluminum engine head stays (the connection between cylinder head and frame) contribute to more precise cornering and a reduced vibration level. The engineers were able to pull off all that, while making their frame 2.2 pounds lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market. In addition, it is easier to maintain, easier to work on and supplies more space for the tank and other components. The bike also features an extra-light subframe made of aluminum, which tips the scales at less than 2 pounds.

Ergonomics & Comfort


Shaped for control


KTM engineers sure know how to handle handlebars. This tapered one, made of high-strength aluminum, is fixed in damped rubber mounts and has two different positions. ODI lock-on grips make grip changes easy and do not require any wire or glue to be secured.

Bodywork & Graphics


Stylish individuality


The KTM 350 XC-F KAILUB RUSSELL features an orange frame that is perfectly matching with its special Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team decals and Kailub's own number #1 on its number plates.

Software & Electronics


Always Ready


Racers, start your engines! Thanks to the ultra-lightweight 2 Ah Lithium-Ion starter battery, firing up the KTM 250 SX-F takes little more effort than reading this sentence - especially in cold weather conditions. And to make matters easier in pitlane, the voltage regulator and condenser, as well as all the electrical components, are packaged in a common area below the seat, making the entire system compact, reliable, and easily maintained.
