An absolutely fully-fledged sports machine for up-and-coming riders from around 8 to 12 years of age, up to a height of 1.60 m. The 65 SX defines the benchmark in its class in terms of performance, handling, equipment and workmanship.
Handlebar: The classy, anodized, Renthal handlebar made from a high-quality aluminum alloy excels with optimal ergonomics and the highest levels of stability. A crash pad around the center brace protects the rider from hard knocks.
Graphics and Colors: The graphic design derived from that of the full-size SX bikes makes the 65 SX even cooler. Its frame has a robust plastic coating in anthracite metallic.
Engine: Superior performance doesn't come from just anywhere; it's delivered by a KTM engine with the latest 2-stroke technology and a 6-speed transmission. The pressure-controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) delivers plenty of torque from the bottom end up and easy-to-ride, very linear power development. An optimized ignition curve guarantees reliable combustion across the whole rev range. Constant temperature control and hence consistently high performance are ensured by an intelligent cooling circuit with integrated crankcase cooling and two radiators.
Clutch: The 65 SX engine is equipped with a hydraulic clutch actuation system from FORMULA, which guarantees smooth and very precise clutch control. Moreover, it also has the same feel (clutch and brake levers are interchangeable) and the same looks as the front brake.
Radiator: Constant temperature control and hence consistently high performance are ensured by an intelligent cooling circuit with integrated crankcase cooling and two radiators.
Brakes: The hydraulic disc brakes on the 65 SX have been developed by brake specialist FORMULA. Heavy-duty 4-piston brake calipers bite hard into the lightweight 198 or 160 mm Wave brake discs.
Shock Absorber: The 65 SX is equipped with a newly developed shock absorber from WP, which not only excels with completely new settings, but now also provides the rider with the opportunity to regulate high and low-speed compression damping. This allows the suspension to be adjusted even better to track and rider, thereby guaranteeing best possible traction and optimum contact with the ground.
Design: 1-cylinder 2-stroke engine, water-cooled, with reed intake and exhaust control
