2016 KTM 50 SXS

50 SXS

For 2016, the KTM 50 SXS builds on the already potent 50 SX model, creating a 50 cc race bike fit for the highest level of amateur motocross racing and the next generation of champions. The 2016 50 SXS comes complete with a SXS fully-adjustable racing shock with reservoir, FMF pipe and silencer, SXS billet clutch cover, and a SXS chain adjustment block and guide. Additionally, the jetting has been tuned in the Dell’Orto PHBG 19 BS carburetor; sintered brake pads replace the stock units; and new clutch springs give better performance to the centrifugal automatic clutch. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via a smaller 38-tooth Renthal sprocket. A special SXS graphic kit is also new for 2016.
