FIRST LOOK! 2022 KTM 50, 65 & 85 MINICYCLES & ELECTRIC PEE-WEE

Complementing KTM’s 2022 big bike line of two-strokes and four-strokes is a series of minicycles that share the exact same race-driven development approach as KTM’s full-size motocross bikes. Junior riders that climb on any of the KTM 50SX, KTM 65SX and KTM 85SX models can do so knowing that they are experiencing class-leading performance, state-of-the-art WP suspension, high-end brakes and minimal weight. For tech-savvy riders, the wheels can start rolling with the 2022 KTM SX-E 5, which is quiet, doesn’t need smelly gasoline, can be made larger and smalle rwith easy to use kits and is the latest incarnation of a high-end electric mini-crosser.

2022 KTM SX-E 5


The KTM SX-E 5 combines class-leading knowledge in youth motorcycling with years of development work in the E-sector. Based on the incredibly popular two-stroke KTM 50SX, the KTM SX-E 5 features the same high-end components and agile chassis with WP XACT suspension but is powered by an innovative electric motor. The mission was clear: to create an ultra-competitive machine that is also easy to ride, even for pure beginners. The KTM SX-E 5 enjoys the advantage of zero emissions, low noise and minimal maintenance, which makes it ideal for youngsters looking to make the first step into the world of motorcycling, and thanks to its dynamic design and adjustable seat height, it is ideal for the growing rider. The KTM PowerPack can provide more than two hours of riding for a beginner – or 25 minutes for the faster junior racers – and with its external worldwide charger, full power is restored in approximately one hour.

2022 KTM SX-E 5 HIGHLIGHTS

• WP XACT 35mm air-sprung fork is ultra-lightweight and easily adjustable for different rider sizes and track conditions.
• Adjustable WP XACT rear suspension with PDS (Progressive Damping System) technology with settings to match the performance of the WP XACT fork.
• Tapered aluminum handlebar (Ø 28/22/18mm) provides excellent control and comfort thanks to optimal flex and a smaller end diameter. A handlebar pad with KTM logo is included.
• ODI lock-on grips with decreased diameter to provide increased control, comfort and confidence for smaller hands
• State-of-the-art electric motor with 5 kW peak performance featuring an extremely compact and slim design that is well suited to the smaller chassis.

• Ride modes can be locked by a magnetic key mounted under the seat to prevent young riders from changing the selected mode.
• Bodywork that mimics the full-size SX line that gives the SX-E 5 a slim profile for excellent ergonomics and handling.
