MotoOnline.com.au has a brand new addition to the family for the coming months…
Project bikes aren’t anything new when it comes to the motorcycle media, however as a publication solely dedicated to the internet, MotoOnline.com.au is proud to announce that we’ve taken delivery of a brand new 2012 model KTM 250 SX-F.
The internet provides a host of unique and highly valuable opportunities to work with a project bike, especially in an era where video is gaining momentum and fans want information as we have it.
What that means for you, the reader, is that you’ll have the most in-depth project bike experience that we can offer, both in glorious HD video, a selection of photography and the usual array of written content.
KTM Australia has been kind enough to come onboard and offer the 250 SX-F to MotoOnline for the term, a bike that features a host of upgrades over last year’s model including the addition of electric start for the new year.
There’s also revised WP suspension front and rear, but apart from that, it’s all pretty much the norm for the Austrian Lites class contender.
Known for their exceptional power supply and now featuring linkage suspension that was introduced in 2011, it’s hard to look past the model that’s won the past four MX2 Motocross World Championships in a row.
On local soil KTM has wrapped up the last two MX Nationals titles in the Pro Lites class with the JDR Motorex KTM team, proving that the 250 SX-F is well and truly ‘Ready to Race’.
So what are we going to do in our time with the Project Moto? Well, luckily enough with KTM, we’ll have a heap of resources including KTM Australia technicians, the JDR Motorex KTM team, and full access to the Powerparts catalogue.
