The 50 SX is a true KTM for young MX riders aged from around four to 10 years old, up to a body height of 1.30m. A genuine motorcycle that, like its bigger siblings, is produced with quality components that make the 50 SX the first choice as a stepping stone into the MX world or for the first racing step on the ladder. With the youngster in mind this package is easy to control and has an engine that is distinguished by a steady power delivery, incorporating an automatic clutch that is ideal for novice riders. For MY 2016 the 50 SX presents itself with newly designed bodywork that provides better ergonomics and makes the bike even easier to ride.Features May Include:
The modern, extremely compact 2-stroke engine fitted with an automatic clutch sets the standard in its class with great, manageable power. Thanks to the 3-shaft design, the crankshaft is close to the bike's centre of gravity. This does not just benefit the handling, but also allows for a flow optimised intake angle into the reed valve - a prerequisite for maximum performance.
For absolute beginners the engine power can be reduced to a moderate 5.5hp using a kit from the Power Parts program.
Developed by KTM, the centrifugal multi-disc automatic clutch provides manageable acceleration and makes riding the motorcycle the easiest thing in the world. It can be adjusted to the special requirements of the track and the rider in minutes and without special tools.
Like the big KTM bikes, the 50 SX has a liquid cooling system, which even cools the crankcase. Generously sized radiators ensure outstanding heat dissipation for high reliability even when in extreme duty.
The modern frame produced by WP Performance Systems is made of lightweight, high strength chromoly steel profiles and combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional rigidity. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, along with outstanding stability. For MY16 the subframe is adapted to match the new bodywork.
For MY 2016 the KTM engineers designed all new plastics that provide perfect ergonomics and contact points for the rider, maximum freedom of movement and better comfort of the seat. In addition, advanced design solutions for the new front and rear fenders are prime examples of an intelligent design, which guarantees maximum stability through a well thought-out structure and mounting.
Top quality upside down front forks by WP Suspension with 35mm tube diameter and 185mm of travel ensure outstanding directional stability. On the rear wheel a WP monoshock linked directly to the swingarm also provides 205mm of suspension travel.
