2016 KTM 50 SX Mini www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Easy riding


Adjustable automatic transmission
The centrifugally controlled, multi-disc automatic clutch developed by KTM delivers easily controllable acceleration and makes riding the 50 SX Mini the easiest thing in the world. Furthermore, it can still be quickly and easily adjusted to the specific requirements of both track and rider using the “KTM clicker system” – in a matter of seconds and with no special tools required.


WP chassis
A high quality, upside-down telescopic fork from WP Suspension, featuring 35 mm diameter outer tubes and 100 mm suspension travel, ensures outstanding ride stability. A WP shock absorber connected directly to the swingarm also supplies 171 mm of suspension travel at the rear wheel.


Suspension/damping
Both the rear shock absorber and the 35 mm upside-down fork are high-quality products from WP Suspension and provide ultimate damping and responsiveness.

 


Made-to-measure performance


Engine
The modern, extremely compact, 2-stroke engine sets the benchmark in its class with its very controllable power. Thanks to the 3-shaft concept, the crankshaft is close to the bike’s center of gravity. This not only benefits the handling; it also provides a flow-optimized inflow angle at the intake membrane – a prerequisite for maximum performance.


Optional restrictor kit
For absolute beginners, the engine power can be restricted to a moderate 5.5 hp with a kit from the PowerParts range.


Radiator
Just like the big KTM bikes, the 50 SX Mini is also equipped with water cooling that even cools the crankcase. Generously dimensioned radiators ensure excellent heat dissipation and therefore high reliability, even under extreme loads.


Clutch
The centrifugally controlled, multi-disc automatic clutch developed by KTM delivers easily controllable acceleration and makes riding this bike the easiest thing in the world. It can be adjusted in no time at all, without special tools, to the specific requirements of both track and rider.

 

 


Top ergonomics


Handlebar
The ergonomic Renthal handlebar made from a high-quality aluminum alloy ensures the highest levels of stability and safety. A Renthal crash pad around the center brace protects the rider from hard knocks.


Graphics
The graphic design derived from that of the full-size SX bikes makes the little KTM even cooler. Its frame has a hardwearing plastic coating in anthracite metallic.

 


Top quality.


Brakes
Both at the front and rear, state-of-the-art hydraulic disc brakes from FORMULA ensure the best possible speed reduction. The exclusive, self-cleaning Wave brake discs stand for the ultimate in race technology and outstanding safety.


Wheels
Just like the big factory bikes, the 50 SX Mini is equipped with ultra-light, black anodized aluminum rims that easily withstand even the biggest of jumps. The 50 SX is now equipped with the very latest generation tire from MAXXIS, featuring a profile that guarantees optimum grip on every surface.
