KTM North America, Inc. has announced details for the 2021 KTM 50 SX Factory Edition. This mini weapon debuted during opening ceremonies of the 2020 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch, and is yet another example of KTM’s ongoing commitment to support racing at the youth level and build future champions of the world.
KTM’s Factory Edition models are the result of years of designing and developing factory race machines for some of the fastest riders on the planet. Hard-fought victories, title chases, lessons and experiences have led to the creation of a Factory Edition for the youngest shredders, and this purebred race machine offers the same competitive advantage as found in the full-sized Factory Edition thanks to a potent range of premium components.
The list of specifically selected performance features includes a full FMF exhaust system, CNC aluminum ignition and clutch covers andhigh-performance Dunlop Geomax MX 53 tires. Designed for a wide variety of terrain, the MX 53 tires feature Block-in-a-Block technology and provide enhanced grip and control to offer the best race setup found on the showroom floor.
Topping all this off with refinements to the engine and jetting, while wrapping everything in special Factory Edition graphics and a blue gripper seat, make the KTM 50 SX Factory Edition the most “Ready to Race” 50cc machine on the starting line.
