CLICK INTO ACTION
Easy Suspension Adjustment
Get dialed in! The 2024 KTM SX range boasts totally tool-free suspension setup at both ends. Thanks to the shock absorber design featuring hand-adjustable dual compression control, it allows riders to adjust high- and low-speed settings in a matter of seconds. On the front end, the forks are also easily adjusted thanks to a single air pressure preload valve, as well as through easy access click adjusters for compression and rebound. We’ll even throw the air pump in as standard.
NO JETS – ONLY ROCKET SHIPS
Electronic Fuel Injection
Pre-mix gets a remix across the 2-stroke KTM SX range, with electronic fuel injection setting the standard. Now there’s no more fiddly jetting setup pre-race, And thanks to the Keihin EFI and reed valve case design, you can be guaranteed of laying down optimal power at any altitude, all of the time.
CHUGGA CHUGGA, RING DING DING!
Picture this; You’re 7 laps into an absolute ripper of a race. You miss your line and end up stalling in a deep rut. But you don’t sweat it. All you do is press the starter button and you blast off again to take the final flag. This is the reality on the 2024 KTM 300 SX. Thanks to a 12,8V 2 Ah lithium ion battery is placed under the rider’s seat, a high-quality stator & pickup and super robust design, the only thing you’ll be kicking – is ass.
SMOOTHER POWER DELIVERY
EFI + Power Valve
With EFI comes great rideability. Along with the electronic fuel injection, a electronic Power Valve has also been fitted to the KTM 300 SX, allowing for more usable power throughout the rev range. Smoother power means better traction. Better traction means holeshot heaven!
The 300 cc 2-stroke powerhouse brings a new choice of weapon into the MX Open category and provides more choice for racers looking for maximum power at the least possible weight. Along with low maintenance costs, the 2024 KTM 300 SX provides pure performance. And then some.
PICK YOUR POWER
The 2024 KTM 300 SX features a map select switch allowing the racer to switch between 2 engine maps. Map 1 provides a linear, predictable power delivery, while Map 2 gives it the full beans with crisp, explosive power output.
Calm Under Fire
SLEEKER FOR YOU TO SCRUB CLEANER
No matter how gnarly the track is, you’ll find complete confidence thanks to the frame design that has not only been engineered for longitudinal rigidity but also repositions rotating mass closer to the center of gravity. The shock mounting also provides improved anti-squat behavior for better traction out of corners, while the footpeg mounting position has moved inwards for less risk of hooking up in deep ruts or when scrubbing jumps.
FLUID RIDER MOTION
The rider triangle provides ample knee contact – especially when standing on the pegs – to ensure enough gripping surfaces all around. The plastics work to expel mud buildup in wet, muddy conditions, with a flat seat profile and high grip seat cover providing exceptional rider movement and control. The polyamide reinforced aluminum subframe further enhances rider feel and feedback.
With a major emphasis placed on mass centralization, the 2024 KTM 300 SX engine is designed to centralize rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis. This results in a lighter, more agile handling feel that simply runs rings around the competition.
Hit The Big Stuff
GRIP AND LET RIP
Ready to rip your arms out of the sockets? Together with the benefits of mass centralization and the anti-squat behavior of the chassis, the 2024 KTM 300 SX gets its power down perfectly when tearing out of corners.
UNFLAPPABLE FRONT END
WP XACT Fork
48mm air type WP XACT front fork with a split damping function provides all the confidence you need to attack the track. Hydrostops in the fork legs improves bottoming-out resistance and account for less rebound when attacking big jumps, bumps, and thumps. Redesigned fork protection rings also increase protection against dirt, making them as reliable as they are awesome.
RACING ON RAILS
The KTM 300 SX is rock-solid at any speed thanks to the position of the forged steering head connection and CNC milled triple clamps. Made from high-grade aluminum, these feature optimally tuned steering stem stiffness, perfect alignment of the fork tubes, and precise geometry of the fork clamps to ensure highly responsive and smooth fork action – not to mention unwavering stability when charging across ruts and onto the podium.
Besides the expertly crafted, hydro-formed, laser-cut, and robot-welded frame being engineered to provide exceptional rider feedback and straight-line stability, it consists of specifically calculated parameters of longitudinal and torsional flex. This means the frame acts as a “shock absorber” of sorts, making for a less harsh ride, resulting in less rider fatigue over many hard laps.
NOTHING TO HOLD YOU BACK
The frame and shock absorber geometry improve ground clearance of the linkage and work with topology optimized die-cast footpegs that are less susceptible to hooking on deep ruts, and take-offs when scrubbing.
PRECISE, LAP AFTER LAP
A WP XACT shock absorber provides unmatched consistency lap after lap, thanks to low-friction SKF linkage seals and advanced damping characteristics for unsurpassed traction and energy absorption.
