2011 KTM 65 SX

Factory technology in miniature: an absolutely fully-fledged sports machine and pretty much an adult bike, unlike the other bikes in this class. Designed for up-and-coming riders from about 8 to 12 years and up to a height of 160cm. And just like the grown-up KTMs, the 65 SX also defines the benchmark in terms of performance, handling, standard equipment and workmanship.

A powerhouse : The 65 SX engine

At the forefront of two-stroke technology, this engine shows its brute force at all speeds, always responds readily to the throttle and handles perfectly. It is completely water-cooled including the crankcase, withstanding even the toughest of dogfights. The revolutionary engine design with the crankshaft positioned close to the centre of gravity not only allows perfect handling of your 65 SX but optimises the intake flow in the crankcase. The patented KTM pressure-control led exhaust valve (PCEV) and re-engineered out let slide give you the edge in terms of power. On top of this, the new strengthened crankcase can handle even the largest jumps with ease, Ensuring that you always finish first .


[ Performance ]
Countless world championship-winning KTM bikes were used as prototypes
for the bodywork, seat line, footrests and handlebars of your SX – the first
choice for future champions. See what your bike can do and become one
with it. Discover how well it handles on any track. You will be amazed at how
perfectly it follows the line you want to take, how sensitively it responds to
changes of direction and how well it grips the surface. Grow with it and let
it grow beyond you.

[ Handle bars ]
Premium quality – PRO TAPER aluminium handlebar,
black anodized, made of high-grade alloy and
super-stable. The handlebar protector also keeps
your hands safe if you occasionally come a little
too close for comfort.

[ Airbox ]
The KTM airflow system ensures that the 65 SX is
particularly well ventilated, not just under the seat but
also through the channels between the spoiler and tank.
Practical – You can change the twin air filter in seconds
without the need for tools.

[ A Masterpiece ]
KTM makes bikes for professionals, and uses only professional parts.
Everywhere on the bike. However, first-rate equipment only works well when it
is in total harmony. For example, the crankshaft rotates most effectively at the
bike’s centre of gravity. Which is why the water cooling system even circulates
around the crankcase. The result: the bike handles better and is easier to
control so your 65 SX stays cool even in the toughest fight.

[ Chassis ]
The frame is modelled on the full-size SX bikes. As with
the larger models, premium quality forged parts are
robot-welded with high-grade chrome-molybdenum
steel pipes, guaranteeing first-rate quality. The
WP mono-shock and the 35 mm Marzocchi-USD
front fork add to the professional performance,
pressure and traction levels can be adjusted
individually for any rider and any track.

[ Brakes ]
You’re going to be riding fast on the 65 SX, so only the
best brakes will do. The four-piston brake calipers
and ultra-light wave brake discs at the front and rear
ensure powerful braking and perfect control in all
conditions.

KTM PRESS RELEASE

PERFECTLY POSITIONED: THE KTM OFFROAD MODEL YEAR 2011


KTM’s Mattighofen factory in Austria has invested a huge amount of effort in developing the latest Offroad motorcycles for the 2010 season with the clear aim of improving the advantage on loose ground even more. Star of the KTM model range is the revolutionary MX1 innovation, the 350 SX-F.

The current motorsport season is well underway and the KTM factory riders have already claimed a slew of podiums on the latest “Made in Austria“ Offroaders. Now the sports brand from Austria presents the line-up of brand new motorcycles for the Model Year 2011.

With three high quality and competitive Minicycle variants for the youngest offroad enthusiasts, a total of six uncompromising Motocross motorcycles especially designed for winning races as well as eight versions of Sport Enduros, the Austrian manufacturer presents the perfect line-up for the coming season. In doing so, KTM once again underlines its leading role in the world of Offroad sports activity.

The huge amount of depth of development in the new Offroad model range extends all the way from the 50 cc two-stroke (50 SX) right up to the powerful displacement of the Enduro 530 EXC-R. In between there is a whole range of tailor-made sports machines for every type of offroad riding and for every rider profile, all absolutely true to the KTM “Ready to Race” philosophy. KTM has just the right machine, regardless of whether it’s for the ambitious hobby rider or the ruling world champion.

As well as the huge development effort that the KTM technicians have applied to the entire model range, these new motorcycles still include some very special innovations. This especially applies to the 350 SX-F, which was first exhibited last autumn. This, the first ever 350 cc bike deployed in the MX1 World Championship, has already been mastered by factory riders Antonio “Tony” Cairoli and his Red Bull KTM teammate Rui Goncalves. Cairoli not only won the premiere race for the 350 machine; after his GP victories, he is also leading the championship standings.

In addition to the unique engine concept, the MX lineup for the 2011 also includes a newly developed frame and chassis components.

The Enduro models, which have been similarly decorated with world championship titles all also profit from the massive amount of experience gathered by not less than 176 World Championship titles. This can be seen both in the feather light two-stroke versions as well as the highly modern and performance powerful four-stroke models. With significant improvements in a while range of areas as well as the extensive series equipment, these machines are prepared in the best possible way for the new racing season.

The new Motocross, Enduro and Minicycle models will be delivered to KTM dealers from June of this year.
