KTM, continuing in its role as the world leader in sports motorcycles is present at the trendsetting Motorcycle Fair in Barcelona, Spain with the latest models in the successfully launched ATV series, including the new benchmark in the category SX ATV.
This model is the 2008 showcase for the SX model ATV series and represents
the entire research and development effort of the Austrian manufacturer. The SX
ATV is fully dedicated to motocross conditions, reinforcing KTM’s leading market
position also in the ATV segments. The 2009 models will be “ready to race” as
450 and 505 cc version.
KTM has created the perfect Motocross ATVs –
their remarkably low weight in combination with the wider front and rear
dimensions guarantee an unmatched handling on any MX track. KTM also heavily
focused on keeping the center of gravity as low as possible by introducing a
newly designed fuel tank.
The specifically developed WP suspension elements are another highlight:
they feature a wide range of adjustments, most of which revolutionize the
industry: High & Low speed compression adjustability both in the front and
rear. Crossover design both in the front and rear.
Available with two different engine displacements,
the KTM SX ATV is high revving and incredibly powerful. Unlike the XC, it does
not feature a reverse gear, thus saving weight.
It also features a big airbox with easy filter access and a race-proven
Keihin 41 mm. KTM went the extra mile by topping it off with Maxxis Razr MX
tires, rear Douglas beadlock rims and nerf bars as well as a protective cover
for the headlight. The SX also has the same industry leading Magura front
brakes, Chromoly frame, hydraulic clutch, Magura handle bar and perfect
ergonomics as the acclaimed XC models.
