• KTM Launches 12 new MX Bikes For 2023

Following on from the launch of 13 enduro machines

No-one is ever going to accuse KTM of not launching enough bikes! Following on from 13 enduro bikes comes a further 12 MX model line-up, including two- and four-stroke models and changes to chassis and engines across the board

KTM Launches 12-Bike MX Range


Hot on the heels of the launch of 13 enduro models (not to mention seven Husqvarna and four GasGas models), KTM has unveiled a 12-bike strong MX line-up for 2023. Unlike the enduro models, however, the MX range includes an electric version.

KTM 2023 MX Range
12 models: electric, two-stroke and four-stroke

There are two-stroke and four-stroke models in the SX range: 50cc, 65cc, 85cc kids bikes, as well as 125cc, 250cc and 300cc adult-sized bikes. Then, there are also 250, 350 and 450 four-stroke SX-Fs.

Improved Electronics
Two engine maps, launch and traction control, quickshift gearbox

Electronics take a big step forward on all models. Two engine maps are available, one giving more linear power delivery and one giving full-beans aggression. The four-stroke SX-F models have launch control and traction control settings and the two-strokes have electronic fuel injection. All models have electric start and fully adjustable WP suspension that can be adjusted without tools for the first time.

WP Suspension
Fully adjustable without tools for the first time

On the four stroke models a Pankl five-speed gearbox is used and features a quick-shifter from second gear upwards. This will help with acceleration out of corners and a quicker getaway from the gate when starting in second gear. The quick-shifter can be switched off.

All New
New frame, new engine mounts, new subframe, new swing arm, new suspension, revised weight distribution and altered ergonomics

These are significantly re-worked bikes, featuring a new frame, new engine mounts, new subframe, new swing arm, new suspension, revised weight distribution and altered ergonomics. The foot pegs on the two-strokes have been moved inwards to further aid agility and greater ground clearance in high-lean situations.

The 2023 SX range has Dunlop MX33 tyres fitted as standard.

Huge Range
12 MX models, 13 Enduro models plus Husqvarna and GasGas versions

These 12 MX models, combined with the nearly two-dozen enduro models from KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas, not to mention the road models from all three brands, mean that the KTM group must have the largest range of models of any manufacturer, ever, in the history of motorcycles.

Europe’s Largest
KTM Group now the largest European motorcycle manufacturer by far

It’s no wonder KTM is Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer. Actually, being the largest in the world is not out of the question, certainly in terms of model numbers if not actual production numbers.
