It looks and feels exactly like a race bike should.

Before you have completed the first lap it brings a smile to your face straight away. You have that lovely tractable power but with that 250 feel to it.

I wasn’t working half as hard on the 350, compared to the 250F and was still doing quicker lap times.

You can nearly be accused of cheating in comparison.

The way the 350 reacts is incredible. no need to worry about being in the correct gear, the bike just performs.

To me, whether you are a Clubman or a Pro, if you are after lap times the 350F is the only way to go.

KTM 2012:– three super two-strokes, three fast four-strokes. You choose!

CONCLUSION

KTM is now in the fortunate position – through hard work and continual development – that it has a bike in each and every motocross class with looks, handling and power to match.

The 125 is superb for the aspiring youth, it handles fantastically and is lightning fast.

Going into the middle class (MX2) the 250F is a bike you can take out of the showroom and race to win the following day.

And depending on your skill there’s always the cam kit to splash-out on!

The 150SX also slots into this class but as much a\s I enjoyed this bike would I actually buy it over the 250F? Probably not – but as a two-stroke class runner it is a real contender.

The ‘Big Class’ as it used to be known is a no-brainer.

The 350F is leaps and bounds ahead of any bike on the market simply because it is so rideable.

I am absolutely amazed as to how good this bike is.

It is light, it handles and is just so quick in real world conditions.

The 450F is a great bike but, hand on heart, there aren’t many people out there who can ride it to its full potential.
