2013 KTM 85SX 17/14 Review

2013 KTM 85SX 17/14

The 2013 KTM 85 SX is the motorcycle that will change the 85cc class with its completely revamped chassis, new bodywork and a further refined, more powerful engine, it’s more competitive than ever before.

 

2013 KTM 85SX 17/14 Features and Benefits

ENGINE

The sensational engine on the KTM 85 SX has been completely overhauled for 2013 and delivers its power over a wide rev range thanks to its intake membrane and intricate exhaust control. The six-speed transmission always has the right gear ratio available. No coincidence that the KTM 85 SX is the king of holeshots.

CYLINDER HEAD + PISTON

A completely new, more compact cylinder with 47 mm (1.85 in) bore ensures that the new 2013 KTM 85 SX achieves much better cylinder charging, thanks to the more efficiently designed, centrifugally-controlled exhaust valve. Together with a new cylinder head, which is now also connected to the frame, the new engine therefore produces significantly more power from mid-range to top-end engine speeds.

FRAME

The new, high quality, chrome-molybdenum steel frame and the redesigned, bolt-on, lightweight aluminium subframe have been further refined in many details. As on the full-size bikes, the frame on the 2013 KTM 85 SX impresses with more precise cornering characteristics. Additional aluminum profiles ensure better stability.

BODYWORK + GRAPHICS

The restyled, aggressive looking bodywork provides improved ergonomics and is directly derived from the new SX generation. Together with the frame, the tank, spoiler, airbox and newly developed seat form a homogenous unit, ensuring perfect harmony between rider and motorcycle.

CHASSIS

The proven 43 m (141 ft) upside-down fork with 270 mm (10.63 in) suspension travel and the improved PDS shock absorber recieve completely new settings to ensure optimum traction and suspension comfort on the 2013 KTM 85 SX. Rebound and compression damping can be adapted individually to track and rider in no time at all.
