It’s that time of year when KTM shows off the limited edition Factory Editions, and as history has proven, the Factory Editions are a sneak peak into what the 2017 KTM SX-F models will feature. These new 2016 Factory Editions will be landing at a dealer near you right around the beginning of 2016. The biggest difference between the 2016 Factory Editions and the regular 2016 SX-F KTMs is the addition of the WP AER48 air fork, which is 3 pounds lighter than the WP 4CS. The 450 SX-F Factory Edition comes with an Akrapovic muffler, which is a pound lighter than the stock muffler. The KTM 250 SX-F Factory Edition comes with an FMF muffler and both bikes come with the well loved orange frames. Check out what is new and different compared to the standard KTM SX-F models.
