The 2023 KTM 65 SX benefits from the same development strategy as its bigger 2-Stroke brethren. Featuring everything the bigger motocross machines do, from a proper clutch and gearbox to the latest WP XACT. In fact, you'd be remiss to think this was anything less than a proper little READY TO RACE weapon.
A new digital ignition from Hidria finds its way onto the 2024 KTM 65 SX, with improved processing power and an all-new ignition curve, making for a cleaner burn and smoother power delivery.
A proven Mikuni TM 24 carburetor takes a prime position in producing the goods in the 2024 KTM 65 SX, with updated settings that work perfectly in harmony with the new engine, exhaust, and air intake design.
There's no more worrying about breaking the plug, thanks to the 2024 KTM 65 SX featuring a new spark plug from BRISK with a longer thread. Also, thanks to this innovation from BRISK, the part number is printed on the spark plugs for easy reading - even while screwed in place.
A new, lighter, more ergonomic kickstart lever makes firing the 2024 KTM 65 SX a cinch for little legs. Not only has the kickstart lever been designed to match the new frame and engine design perfectly. It also ensures easy access for quick restarts while being perfectly packaged to be out of the way when tearing up the berms.
Servicing and general maintenance are made simple, thanks to draining noses for liquids and added service markers on the engine (▲) that clearly show where to use washers, making maintenance and service easier than before. Nm markings clearly show how to tighten relevant screws to avoid overtightened or too loose bolts. Many of the screws on the engine case have also been unified to the same screw length on the engine case.
Right, this is a big one. The 2024 KTM 65 SX boasts an all-new high-strength chromium molybdenum steel frame design. Unprecedented quality of the Mini frame could be achieved with forged connecting parts, carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity, and incorporated sheet metal parts that allow tailormade stiffness. The new frame layout features a typical MX design without any cross tube behind the steering head. The rear shock mount is separated from the main upper frame tube like on our full-size models. The frame now also comes with frame protectors as standard.
Rolling off the race rig and into the pit lane, the 2024 KTM 65 SX uses lightweight, black anodized, GIANT aluminum rims like the full-size KTM SX range. These provide the highest levels of strength and reliability, while MAXXIS MX-ST tires deliver outstanding performance on any terrain and exceptional straight-line stability.
Bringing the 2024 KTM 65 SX to a stop comes courtesy of floating brake calipers from Formula, with a 198mm wave disc up front and a 180mm wave disc at the rear. This brake assembly combination reduces wear and ensures maximum reliability and durability, while a new forged rear brake lever provides the ideal rider feel and durability.
All-new, "no-dirt" footrests offer a bigger surface area for improved grip while standing on the pegs and are less susceptible to hooking up in deep ruts, take-offs when scrubbing, or track barriers.
