Huge news for 2024 KTM XC and XC-F Cross Country models! The air fork is gone and replaced with an all-new WP XACT Closed Cartridge spring fork. See the official images and information below.
With almost a decade’s worth of back-to-back championships, KTM is no stranger to winning premier cross country racing titles. For 2024, the KTM XC and XC-F range is set to continue that trend with a lineup of precision machines built to deliver trophies.
All 2024 XC and XC-F models benefit from Electronic Fuel Injection, along with a map select switch as standard, while the 4-stroke XC-F range gets additional Traction Control, Launch Control, and, new for 2024, a Quickshifter on all XC-F machines—5-speed or 6-speed (now also available for 2023 KTM XC-F 6-speed cross country 4-strokes as a software update).
The biggest improvement to the 2024 KTM XC and XC-F range comes by way of the suspension.
A new hydro stop in the last 68 mm of the stroke aids in maintaining maximum reserves in extreme riding situations. Revised fork protection rings also provide increased protection against dirt intrusion for improved reliability. The new WP XACT Closed Cartridge fork retains its 48 mm diameter, while the total length is now 940 mm, providing 300 mm of travel.
On the rear, the WP XACT shock provides advanced damping characteristics for unsurpassed traction and energy absorption. It also features less overall length and less weight compared to the previous generation while keeping the suspension travel unchanged with 300 mm.
