KTM’s FACTORY EDITION models are the result of years of designing and developing factory race machines for some of the fastest riders on the planet. Hard-fought victories, title chases, lessons and experiences have led to the creation of a FACTORY EDITION for the youngest shredders. This purebred race machine offers the same competitive advantage as found in the full-sized FACTORY EDITION bikes and is enhanced with a potent range of premium componentry.

Junior riders and racers that climb on the KTM 50 SX FACTORY EDITION can do so in the knowledge that they are experiencing class-leading performance with state-of-the-art WP Suspension, high-end brakes and minimal weight. The list of specifically selected performance features includes an FMF exhaust system, CNC machined aluminum ignition and clutch covers and high-performance Dunlop Geomax MX 53 tires.

Designed for a wide variety of terrain, the MX 53 tires feature Block-In-A-Block technology and provide enhanced grip and control to offer the best race setup found on the showroom floor. Topping all this off with refinements to the engine and jetting, while wrapping everything in special FACTORY EDITION graphics and a blue grippier seat, make the KTM 50 SX FACTORY EDITION the most READY TO RACE 50cc machine on the starting gate.
