We had a chance to briefly go over Dante Oliveira’s, the 3x and defending National Grand Prix Champion, factory KTM 450 XC-F that he’ll be running in the NGPC Series as well as the AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship. In speaking with mechanic Bobby Dawson, testing the new machine was fairly smooth, but the biggest hurdle they and a lot of other teams are facing right now is a lack of parts. Several companies don’t have all of the parts designed for the new bike just yet, and some of the factory parts are on the lean side as well. Check out what makes this bike so special and all of the little intricacies that go into a factory prepped machine.
