KTM is proud of its innovative approach to motorcycling and no more so than the introduction of a new electrically powered junior machine – the KTM SX-E 5. This READY TO RACE model has been showcased for the first time at Red Bull Straight Rhythm in Pomona, California.
KTM has put a lot of effort and all of its electric know-how that’s evolved over the last 10 years into the development of the KTM SX-E 5. The result is a highly competitive electric mini-cycle with minimal maintenance and noise.
The bike has six power modes, allowing a complete beginner to step onto a READY TO RACE machine with ease, while the full power mode is exciting and challenging for the fastest junior. With a premium chassis developed by the KTM engineers, the KTM SX-E 5 is fully adjustable in terms of ride height, especially with the additional KTM PowerParts lowering kit, and is aimed at riders aged three to 10 years old. The bike grows with the rider both in ability and in size – a special feature for this high-quality machine.
This innovative junior bike has an electric motor powered by an ultra-modern lithium-ion battery pack with a robust housing for maximum protection. The power is smooth and controllable, offering increased rideability over other bikes in its class, while also providing fantastic agility on the motocross course.
Like its combustion counterpart, the KTM SX-E 5 is fitted with WP XACT 35 air fork technology, as well as the WP XACT shock absorber, and it also features high-quality components such as premium disc brakes, cast footpegs, tapered aluminium handlebars and confidence-inspiring ergonomics.
The e-mobility sector is becoming an important part of modern travel and KTM has a dedicated R&D team working on this segment that is developing platforms for KTM’s future plans in e-powered motorcycles. This, combined with years of knowledge in creating premium sport motorcycles, ensures that KTM is at the forefront of e-technology. KTM has announced it is committed to 4kw-18kw (peak power) low voltage motors and is excited to launch the KTM SX-E 5 as its next chapter in its e-mobility story.
The new KTM SX-E 5 will be available during the last quarter of 2019 at authorized KTM dealers.
