The 2013 KTM 85 features a completely revamped chassis, new bodywork and a more powerful engine.
The bike rides on a 43 m upside-down fork with 270 mm suspension travel and the improved PDS shock absorber. Needless to say, that the Rebound and compression damping can be adapted individually to track and rider.
Power comes from a fresh 1-cylinder 2-stroke engine, water-cooled, with reed intake and exhaust control. The unit has been completely overhauled for 2013 and delivers its power over a wide rev range. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a six-speed transmission.
The agile engine is mounted on a light, but stiff chrome-molybdenum steel frame which comes with a redesigned bolt-on, lightweight aluminum subframe.
Apart from the technical improvements, the 2013 KTM 85 SX is also offered with a fresh design language. The restyled, aggressive looking bodywork provides improved ergonomics and is directly derived from the new SX generation.
