2021 KTM 65 SX Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Cooling

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.

Engine

The KTM 65 SX features cutting-edge 2-stroke technology and an easy-to-shift 6-speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch. Benefitting from a reworked ignition curve, the cylinder, with its pressure-controlled exhaust valve, continues to provide class-leading power and plenty of torque.

Brakes

The front and rear brakes have massive 4 piston calipers that grip lightweight wave brake discs – 198 mm front and 160 mm rear. The hydraulic brake system is easy to control and ensures the best deceleration and the highest standard when it comes to performance.

Frame

The modern frame is made from 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.

Swingarm

The KTM 65 SX is fitted with a lightweight cast aluminum swingarm. Conceived using the latest in calculation and simulation software, the focus of the design was for minimum weight, optimum stiffness and precisely defined flexibility. In addition, it features a robust 2-compound chain guide, similar to the full-size models.

Wheels

Like the full-size KTM Factory racers, the 65 SX has super lightweight, black anodized, aluminum rims providing the highest strength and durability. The OEM MAXXIS knobby tires grip superbly on any surface.

Front suspension

The KTM 65 SX is the first model in its class to be fitted with a modern, fully adjustable air fork: the WP XACT fork with AER technology. The upside-down front fork with a 35 mm tube diameter and 215 mm 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 using a simple air pump.

Rear suspension

The high quality WP XACT shock absorber is linked directly to the swingarm, providing excellent damping performance. It is fully adjustable, meaning you can set the damping perfectly to suit the rider’s preference and track conditions. The shock absorber allows for 270 mm of rear wheel travel.

Brakes

The front and rear brakes have massive 4 piston calipers that grip lightweight wave brake discs – 198 mm front and 160 mm rear. The hydraulic brake system is easy to control and ensures the best deceleration and the highest standard when it comes to performance.
