2013 KTM 65 SX

Posted on by

The KTM 65 SX was especially developed for those young riders who want to learn the secrets of dirt bikes. Thereby the bike is perfectly suited for all up-and-coming riders from 8 to 12 years of age and up to a height of about 1.60 m.

The motorcycle is equipped with a 1-cylinder 2-stroke, 64.85 cc, water-cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a six-speed transmission which offers smooth shifts.

As far as suspensions are concerned both the WP upside-down telescopic fork and the WP shock absorber have adjustable rebound and compression damping.

The motorcycle’s speed is handled by a capable brake system that has been developed by the brake specialist FORMULA. The system includes front and rear heavy-duty 4-piston brake callipers and lightweight 198 mm and 160 mm Wave brake discs.
