2021 KTM 85 SX 19/16 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The exhaust system has been designed to perfectly match the engine’s power characteristics and contributes to the outstanding all-round performance and rideability. The header pipe is produced using a 3-dimensional stamping process. Once the components have been shaped, they are robot welded to ensure the highest level of quality, consistency and durability. The lightweight and compact silencer has been reworked with improved packing wool (40 g lighter), guaranteeing that sweet 2-stroke sound and falling safely within the noise limits for racing.
It took extreme levels of ingenuity to fit the race-winning formula of KTM’s bigger 2-strokes into a compact 85 cc engine. A special manufacturing process is used and provides impressive weight savings without sacrificing strength or durability. The super compact power plant is fitted with a 6-speed gear box and delivers class-leading power and rideability throughout the entire rev range. The power valve plays a key role in tailoring power delivery to suit track conditions and rider ability, ensuring that the only rider surprised by the incredible performance is the competition.
The KTM 85 SX airbox is designed to optimize the small space available to deliver the best possible performance, while still maintaining the highest level of filter protection. The air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel. Knowing that air literally breathes power into the motor, KTM has ensured that the process of inserting a new clean filter could not be any easier. The Twin Air filter and filter cage design features a simple, secure mounting system, making filter maintenance a quick, easy and accurate task.
The frame on the KTM 85 SX is a scaled-down version of the championship-proven full-size frames. It is professionally crafted using hydroformed chromium molybdenum steel tubes that are robot welded, ensuring the highest levels of consistent quality. The flex characteristics have been specifically tailored for easy handling and optimal comfort, while working in perfect harmony with the suspension, to ensure excellent agility and high-speed stability. For 2020, the frames feature highly durable orange powder coating and come with standard frame protectors.
The KTM 85 SX has “no-dirt” footpegs, which have a simple but effective self-cleaning system that ensures the footpegs return to their original position, providing complete control in all conditions.
The KTM 85 SX features a strong, lightweight, tapered aluminum handlebar, with a specifically shaped bend to suit the overall ergonomics. Additionally, the bike comes standard with ODI lock-on grips, which include a vulcanized grip on the right side and a lock-on grip on the left that do not require glue or wire for mounting
