KTM 65 SX 2018:FAST HAS NO AGE LIMIT
The KTM 65 SX is a fully-fledged piece of sports equipment for young pilots aged around 8 to 12 years with a body height of up to 1.60m. This year’s top student features a revolutionary WP AER 35 front fork, ultra cool graphics and sets the standard in terms of power, riding dynamics, equipment and craftsmanship. Like its larger counterparts, the KTM 65 SX is truly READY TO RACE for its young competitors.
The 65 SX benefits from cutting-edge 2-stroke
technology and an easy to shift 6-speed transmission
with a hydraulic clutch. The cylinder, with its pressure
controlled exhaust valve, provides class-leading
power and plenty of torque.
The high performance cylinder features a pressure
controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) and provides unrivaled
performance within the highly competitive 65cc class.
An outstanding feature of the 65 SX is the hydraulic
clutch made by Formula. It ensures an easy clutch
action and well-defined modulation.
The bodywork is derived from the full-size SX models
and provides perfect ergonomics, well thought-out contact
points for the rider and maximum freedom of
movement. In addition, smart 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.
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, but also outstanding
stability. The subframe, made of lightweight aluminum,
is fitted with 4 screws to the frame.
Derived from the full-size SX bikes, the graphic design
makes the new 65 SX look even cooler. Its frame
has a super rugged polymer coating in cheeky black.
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.
The classy anodized handlebar made of a high
quality aluminum alloy is distinguished by the best
ergonomics and the highest strength. A slide pad on
the handlebar brace protects the rider from
The 65 SX is fitted with a lightweight cast aluminum
swingarm. Conceived using the latest in calculation
and simulation software, the design and wall thickness
have been made for minimum weight at optimum stiffness
and precisely defined flexibility. In addition it features a
robust 2-compound chain guide similar to the
The new KTM 65 SX is the first model in its class
fitted with a modern, fully adjustable air fork: the
WP AER 35, made by WP Suspension. The upside-down
front fork with 35mm tube diameter and 215mm 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 just with
a simple air fork pump.
On the rear wheel a WP shock absorber linked
directly to the swingarm provides excellent damping
performance and is fully adjustable in order set
the damping perfectly to rider’s preferences and
track conditions. The rear wheel travel is 270mm.
Like the big KTM factory racers, the 65 SX has super
lightweight, black anodized, aluminum rims providing
highest strength and safety. The OEM knobbly
MAXXIS tires grip superbly on any surface.
The 65 SX is fitted front and rear with massive 4
piston calipers that grip lightweight wave brake
discs of 198mm front and 160mm rear diameter.
The hydraulic brake system is easy to control
and ensures the best deceleration and the highest
standard when it comes to safety.
