FAST HAS NO AGE LIMIT
The 2023 KTM 65 SX benefits from the same development strategy as its bigger 2-Stroke brethren. Featuring everything the bigger motocross machines do, from a proper clutch and gearbox to the latest WP XACT. In fact, you'd be remiss to think this was anything less than a proper little READY TO RACE weapon.
Like its bigger brethren, the KTM 65 SX boastys cutting-edge 2-stroke technology and fully maunal 6-speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch. Benefitting from a time-proven ignition curve, the cylinder, with its pressure-controlled exhaust valve, continues to provide class-leading power and torque.
The high performance cylinder features a pressure-controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) and provides unrivaled performance within the highly competitive 65 cc class.
An outstanding feature of the KTM 65 SX is the hydraulic clutch made by Formula. It provides easy, light clutch action and well-defined modulation - even for the smallest of gloved hands.
An intelligent cooling circuit with integrated crankcase cooling and two radiators improves the heat dissipation and ensures a constant temperature balance for consistent, high performance.
This modern frame is made from lightweight, high strength chromoly steel profiles and combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional rigidity. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, but also outstanding stability at speed. And yes, the KTM 65 SX does get going when the throttle is pinned.
Taking charge at the rear is a lightweight cast aluminum swingarm. Conceived using the latest in calculation and simulation software, the focus of the design was to minimize weight, optimize stiffness and clearly define flexibility. Additionally, it also features a robust 2-compound chain guide, similar to the full-size models.
Like the full-size KTM Factory racers, the KTM 65 SX is fitted with lightweight, black anodized, aluminum rims which provide the highest strength and durability for any eventuality. These are fitted with OEM MAXXIS knobbly tires, to provide unmatched traction on any surface.
The KTM 65 SX boasts a WP XACT fork with AER technology. The upside-down front fork with a 35 mm tube diameter and 215 mm of travel ensures outstanding comfort, damping characteristics and directional stability. Another main benefit for junior riders is that the air spring fitted in the left fork leg can be adjusted perfectly to the rider's weight using a simple air pump.
Hang on tight - the KTM 85 SX features a strong, lightweight, tapered aluminum handlebar, with a specifically shaped bend to suit its overall ergonomics. Additionally, the bike comes standard with ODI lock-on grips, which include a vulcanized grip on the right side and a lock-on grip on the left that do not require glue or wire for mounting.
