MXA VIDEO: WE TEST THE 2022 KTM 150SX TWO-STROKE

The 2022 KTM 150SX update list is small for the ’22 season. It has an orange frame, blue seat and updated graphics—just like the rest of the 2022 KTMs. This bike did, however, get some good updates last year and we explained those, while also comparing the 150SX big-bore to a KTM 125SX in this video. MXA’s Assistant Editor Josh Mosiman explained the details while test rider Ezra Lewis made the bike look good at the State Fair MX track in Perris, California.

Jeff Emig raced at Loretta Lynn’s this past week, going 3-3-2 for second overall behind Mike Brown in the Senior 45+ class and 1-2-2 for second overall in the Masters 50+ class behind Keith Johnson. Jeff raced on a Husky 150SX two-stroke with lots of modifications done by Twisted Development and he went up against 450 four-strokes, showing one great example for what this bike is good for. It wasn’t beneficial for his starts, and might not have been the perfect bike, but Jeff wanted to be on a two-stroke and he showed he was competitive on it. MXA likes the 150 two-strokes from KTM and Husky for the World Two-Stroke Championships (which feature a 150cc limit on the 125 class Pro class), for the Pasha 150 Open races, which are money paying two-stroke races in Southern California, for riders who don’t want a four-stroke but still want to stay close to the four-strokes on corner exit and for passing our buddies on 125s down the straightaways. Long story short, you can’t race this in “125 only” classes, but it’s still a great bike.
