Introducing the 2023 KTM SX Motocross Collection

KTM have officially announced their The 2023 KTM SX range – a range set to reshape the market as well as riders’ expectations. Expect a lot of changes to the 2023 models but the same approach for outright excellence from the brand.

12 models that scale from electric learner bikes through to 2-Stroke mini-cycles (50, 65, 85cc) to larger 2-Stroke thrillers at 125, 250 and 300cc capacity. The KTM SX-Fs consist of 250, 350 and 450 4-Strokes. The 2023 KTM SXs are sleeker, slimmer, and more controllable.

Behind the gate

The 2023 KTM SX range are primed. Counting on 2 maps (one standard, softer and linear power and another for a more aggressive response), launch control, traction control, a ‘roll-over’ sensor for large crashes, an hour-meter as standard with electronic fuel injection status and a fuel indicator through the engine management system. Other preparatory steps come through the tool-free adjustments now possible with the latest spec WP Suspension engineering.

Gate-drop

Fired up with the electric starter on all models. Engine packages are more compact, more durable, more serviceable and offer the best power-to-weight ratio across the board.

KTM have officially announced their The 2023 KTM SX range – a range set to reshape the market as well as riders’ expectations. Expect a lot of changes to the 2023 models but the same approach for outright excellence from the brand.

New cylinder heads translates into performance gains and the rearwards rotation of the engines by 2 degrees has given better centralisation. Brand new 5-speed transmissions with an additional sensor for the 4-Strokes mean that up-shifts (from 2nd gear onwards) are slicker thanks to the Quickshifter function. The Quickshifter can be disabled with a switch on the handlebar but a weight-optimised shift shaft in the transmission itself means that the operating force of the changes is now less and therefore easier. A Brembo hydraulic clutch ensures top-of-the-range dependability whatever the conditions.

With the 2-Strokes, less carbs = more muscle. The KTM SXs feature new electronic fuel injection to ensure simplicity, enjoyment and uniqueness. A ‘remix to the premix’ counts on a TPS-sensor for better behaviour while idle and for the fuel-air mixture. More power, more response, more assurance, more ease, more fun.

Attacking the track

The demands of competition, fitness and the track set the tone for any moto. It’s in the depths of this hard, physical stage of a race when the connection and feeling with any motorcycle can make the difference and fully harness the excitement and fulfilment. The chassis and frame design have been taken back to the core and sought better dynamics, stability and strength. ‘Longitudinal rigidity’ is a key phrase and with accentuated rider feeling coming through an ‘anti-squat’ philosophy. This has been achieved by a new frame and mounts, subframe, swingarm, engine repositioning, ergonomics and WP Suspension tech.

The frame is hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded. The wall thickness has been optimised to achieve improved specific rigidity in high stress areas such as the steering head and all new shock mounts. The design is sportier with sights on extra agility – the new inwardly moved footpegs for even greater clearance in ruts and for dropping the bike flat for jump scrubs. New footpegs are larger in surface area and are lighter than before. Stiffness has been dialled with lighter die cast hollow swingarms and a new rear axle.

The WP Suspension XACT shock is shorter and lighter. The internal flow of liquids is more flush, reliable and resistant, and the shock’s smaller dimensions lower the chances of pollutants and dirt intrusion. The shape permits higher ground clearance with the linkage and advanced damping meaning better traction as the bike ingests the bumps with the new geometry setting. Entering corners or landing jumps any KTM SX can take full profit from WP XACT forks with AER air technology featuring a new hydrostop for more effective performance and more ‘bottoming’ resistance.

The 2023 KTM SXs are narrower and honed, but have increased contact area and surfaces to allow even more input into the handling of the bike. The flat orange seat – offering excellent grip and a stance emphasising greater control – and the reworked front fender are other identifiable marks. The ‘mud flaps’ of the fender prevents excessive soil being flicked up towards the rider and the radiator in particularly wet conditions.

Finishing strong

You’ve gone faster and longer than ever but any Pro racer will tell you that the last two/ three laps of any moto are key. This is where the versatility and usability of the new KTM SXs are further excels. The rate of energy absorption is high thanks to the forgiving chassis and other components such as the fresh CNC milled triple clamps with optimised bar mounts and wider grip surface area. This leads to less handlebar ‘twist’. The whole unit is protected by a new number plate design. The subframe is now a finely engineered hybrid thanks to polyamide reinforced aluminium, applying strength into the lower part of the frame and extending flexibility for control and comfort in upper sections.
