The 50 SX is a true READY TO RACE KTM for young MX riders. It is a genuine dirt bike that, like its bigger siblings, is produced with top-quality components. This makes the 50 SX the first choice as a stepping stone into the world of MX or for the first racing step on the ladder. With the youngster in mind this package has an engine that delivers steady, controllable power, incorporating an automatic clutch that allows the rider to concentrate on the track, not shifting. This year’s model features revolutionary WP AER 35 front forks, fully adjustable rear suspension, a new exhaust, ultra-cool graphics and detail improvements that make going fast fun.

2018 KTM 50 SX Highlights:
WP AER 35 air-sprung fork is easily adjustable for different rider sizes as well as track conditions
Fully adjustable rear suspension to match the performance of the WP AER 35 fork
A 3-shaft engine design keeps the crankshaft close to the bike’s center of gravity for quick handling along with room for an optimized reed valve angle for maximum performance
Bodywork that mimics the full-size 2017 SX-F line that gives the 50 SX a slim profile for excellent ergonomics and handling
Front and rear hydraulic brakes by Formula combined with lightweight WAVE discs are powerful with feedback that gives control for any skill level
A centrifugal multi-disc automatic clutch provides manageable acceleration and can be adjusted to the track conditions in minutes without tools
Super lightweight, black anodized aluminum rims are matched to MAXXIS tires for maximum grip
