Features

ENGINE & EXHAUST

  • ENGINE & EXHAUST KTM 2-strokes have been tearing up MX tracks for decades and are undoubtedly the fastest on the track today. Thanks to years of ongoing development, these engines are the benchmark in performance and technology, with the perfect combination of power, weight and control. Through melodic high-RPM screams, KTM 2-strokes continue to deliver thrilling high-performance harmonics.
  • ENGINE It took extreme levels of ingenuity to fit the race-winning formula of KTM's bigger 2-strokes into a compact 85 cc engine. A special manufacturing process is used and provides impressive weight savings without sacrificing strength or durability. The super compact power plant is fitted with a 6-speed gear box and delivers class-leading power and rideability throughout the entire rev range. The power valve plays a key role in tailoring power delivery to suit track conditions and rider ability, ensuring that the only rider surprised by the incredible performance is the competition.
  • CYLINDER The cylinder on the KTM 85 SX has a bore and stroke of 47/48.95 mm. It features a sophisticated power valve system, which controls both the exhaust valve and the sub exhaust ports, giving the bike excellent torque and power delivery. This translates into significant midrange performance, reducing the need to overwork the clutch in loamy or sandy conditions. An adjuster screw allows the opening time of the power valve to be adjusted to suit rider preference and track conditions.
  • CRANKCASES AND ENGINE COVERS The crankcases are manufactured using a high pressure die-cast production process, keeping wall thickness to a minimum while retaining strength and durability. The design of the cases is very compact and aims at positioning the shaft arrangements as close as possible to the center of gravity, contributing to better handling.
  • TRANSMISSION The 85 SX features a light and robust 6-speed gearbox. The gear ratios have been developed to perfectly match the characteristics of the engine, while easy and precise shifting allows the rider to select the next gear quickly and confidently. The gearbox features a new drive shaft which uses a screw for front sprocket fixation and diaphragm spring instead of a circlip, ensuring secure front sprocket fixation. Another highlight of the 85 SX transmission is the "no-dirt" gear shifter. Similar to the footpeg design, it prevents the build-up of dirt and ensures the next gear is always available, no matter what the conditions.
  • CLUTCH The KTM 85 SX features a strong and reliable clutch with an extremely compact design. The clutch is easily actuated by the FORMULA hydraulic system, which conveniently ensures that play is always compensated for, keeping the clutch "bite" point the same throughout the ride and under all conditions.
  • CRANKSHAFT The KTM 85 SX features a lightweight crankshaft with optimized balancing for reduced vibration and oscillating mass. As light as the crankshaft is, the rotational inertia has not been compromised, ensuring maximum torque and revs, as well as easy rideability.
  • CARBURETOR The KTM 85 SX is fitted with a MIKUNI TMX carburetor. This 38 mm flat slide carb lives to provide smooth and controllable power all the way up to the rev limitation. The angle of the intake manifold helps to reduce the overflow of fuel. It's also less sensitive to different altitudes and temperatures, so you can pin it wherever, whenever.
  • IGNITION All 2-stroke models feature a CDI control unit with advanced hardware that improves the starting behavior of the engine. The ignition curves remain unchanged.

CHASSIS

  • CHASSIS For the 85 cc, KTM has successfully developed a chassis that not only handles the hard-charging brutality of a 15-year-old, but also effectively accommodates a lightweight newcomer to the class. This is achieved through its lightweight, high-tech steel frame. Its optimized flex characteristics provide a great feeling for the rider and help to soak up those big hits, while also delivering excellent agility and high-speed stability. Every element is designed to work in perfect harmony and contributes to an intuitive ride like no other.
  • FRAME The frame on the KTM 85 SX is a scaled-down version of the championship-proven full-size frames. It is professionally crafted using hydroformed chromium molybdenum steel tubes that are robot welded, ensuring the highest levels of consistent quality. The flex characteristics have been specifically tailored for easy handling and optimal comfort, while working in perfect harmony with the suspension, to ensure excellent agility and high-speed stability. For 2020, the frames feature highly durable orange powder coating and come with standard frame protectors.
  • SUBFRAME Made from lightweight aluminum, the subframe provides rear fender stability and strong support for the rider at little extra weight.
  • SWINGARM The one-piece swingarm is manufactured using a gravity die-cast production process for exceptional strength at the lowest possible weight. It offers a wide range of adjustment for the rear wheel, allowing for a shorter wheelbase on tighter, twisty tracks, or a longer wheelbase for greater stability on longer, more choppy tracks. The swingarm's chain measurement markings are visible from above, making adjustment simpler and more accurate.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

  • ERGONOMICS & COMFORT 85 cc riders come in all shapes and sizes, which requires intelligent motorcycle design to cater for these dynamics. For optimal high-performance ergonomics, KTM used the proven design of the big bike range on the KTM 85 SX. The goal was to provide a neutral riding position that, together with perfectly shaped bodywork, offers the best rider comfort and maneuverability. A rider's main interaction with the motorcycle comes through the seat, footpegs and handlebars, which is why KTM has used the best quality parts in these areas. The placement of these crucial contact points is also vitally important for balance and control and, through various handlebar position options, can be adjusted to suit a rider's preference. This ensures the optimal riding position for race-winning performance.

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

  • BODYWORK & GRAPHICS The bodywork on the 2020 KTM 85 SX is carried over from its predecessor and was designed to have the same touch points and overall feeling as the full size SX range. This similarity in bodywork is great preparation for an 85 cc rider's imminent move to the bigger bikes of pro-level motocross, making the transition as seamless as possible. KTM factory riders, KTM R&D and Kiska Design all contributed to achieving the goal of complete harmony between rider and bike. These contact points allow maximum freedom of movement and improved agility. The front and rear fenders have an I-beam structure, which are prime examples of the intelligent design that produces maximum stability with the lowest possible weight.
  • DECALS The bodywork is fittingly finished off with aggressive, modern graphics, leaving the competition in no doubt of a rider's race-winning intentions.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

  • SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS Absolute performance purity is the name of the game when it comes to the KTM 85 SX. Undiluted 2-stroke simplicity with an hour meter to keep a check on how long you've been shredding and an optional rev counter to assist with perfect setup.
