If you're reading this, then it is safe to say things have become serious. The 2024 KTM 85 SX - in big wheel guise - is the first real step into the big leagues. Lightweight, powerful and reliable, the KTM 85 SX boasts real big bike components in scaled-down 85 cc geometry, providing the ultimate kickstart to any young racing career.
It took extreme levels of ingenuity to fit the race-winning formula of KTM's bigger 2-strokes into a compact 85 cc engine. The super-compact powerplant is fitted with a 6-speed gearbox and delivers class-leading power and rideability throughout the entire rev range. The powervalve plays a key role in tailoring power delivery to suit track conditions and rider ability, ensuring that the only rider surprised by the incredible performance is the competition.
The cylinder on the KTM 85 SX has a bore and stroke of 47mm and 48.95 mm respectively. It features a sophisticated power valve system, which controls both the exhaust valve and the sub exhaust ports, giving the bike excellent torque and power delivery. This translates into significant midrange performance, reducing the need to overwork the clutch in loamy or sandy conditions. An adjuster screw allows the opening time of the power valve to be adjusted to suit rider preference and track conditions.
The crankcases are manufactured using a high-pressure die-cast production process, keeping wall thickness to a minimum while retaining strength and durability. The design of the cases is very compact and aims at positioning the shaft arrangements as close as possible to the center of gravity, contributing to better handling.
The frame on the KTM 85 SX is a scaled-down version of the multi-championship-winning full-size frames. Made from hydroformed chromium-molybdenum steel tubes that are robot welded, the frame is pin-point accurate, ensuring the highest levels of consistent quality and flex characteristics.
The one-piece swingarm is manufactured using a gravity die-cast production process for exceptional strength at the lowest possible weight. It offers a wide range of adjustment for the rear wheel, allowing for a shorter wheelbase on tighter, twisty tracks, or a longer wheelbase for greater stability on longer, more choppy tracks. The swingarm's chain measurement markings are visible from above, making adjustment simpler and more accurate.
Not only does this lightweight aluminum subframe provide rear fender stability and strong support, it also adds to the overall rigidity and handling of the KTM 85 SX.
The 2024 KTM 85 SX features a 'big wheel' Excel rim combo powdercoated in black, with a 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch rear. These are mounted on CNC-machined hubs and wrapped in MAXXIS MX-ST tires which deliver exceptional straight-line stability and excellent traction when chasing the holeshot.
The KTM 85 SX front fork features the same suspension technology found in the full-size motocross range. The WP XACT fork with AER technology consists of a split fork design with a capsuled air spring in the left leg and the trusted oil damping system in the right leg. The preload adjustment is extremely simple and can be adjusted by using the single air pressure valve and supplied air pump. The design also allows for easy access to compression and rebound clickers.
The KTM 85 SX boasts a WP XACT rear shock absorber with sophisticated PDS (Progressive Damping System). This design offers a high progression rate and an excellent response to uneven terrain - just like the bigger bikes. It also allows an impressive 305 mm of rear-wheel travel and is fully adjustable for preload, compression, and rebound.
Bringing this little screamer to a stop is down to the Formula brake system with radial calipers - four pistons in front, two in the rear - with lightweight Wave brake discs. The system is the benchmark in terms of controlled action and braking performance, ensuring powerful and confident braking.
The KTM 85 SX airbox is a masterclass in design, optimizing the tiny space available to deliver the best possible performance, while still maintaining the highest level of filter protection. The air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel. The Twin Air filter and filter cage design feature a simple, secure mounting system, making filter maintenance quick and easy, which means less time in the pits, and more time winning races.
Holding approximately 5.2 liters of pre-mixed fury, the tank is perfectly shaped to be small and slim to allow for easy and uninhibited rider movement, while still providing enough range to cover a full race at full throttle.
Hang on tight - the KTM 85 SX features a strong, lightweight, tapered aluminum handlebar, with a specifically shaped bend to suit its overall ergonomics. Additionally, the bike comes standard with ODI lock-on grips, which include a vulcanized grip on the right side and a lock-on grip on the left that do not require glue or wire for mounting.
The KTM 85 SX has "no-dirt" footpegs, which have a simple but effective self-cleaning system that ensures the footpegs return to their original position, providing complete control in all conditions.
Providing the perfect blend of grip, durability and comfort, the 2024 KTM 85 SX seat does everything you'd expect it to, while showing off it's its undeniable READY TO RACE and 'orange' heritage.
Rocking an all white and orange color plastics combination and orange seat cover - not to mention bold, black, orange and purple graphics - the 2024 KTM 85 SX lines up behind the gate with pure race-winning intent.
