KTM’s SX ATV introduced at Spain’ biggest Motorcycle Fair
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.

Perfection guaranteed
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.

Unmatched engine
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.

KTM-Parts.com has the new SX listed with a price of 11,398.00. WOW!!! I thought 9K was high for my XC. I guess i'll stick with what I have. With all the power of this thing reverse is nice to have when you over-shoot the corners.
Plus reverse is fun to use when riding w/my buddy's that don't have it. "look at me na na"
