KTM 85 SX 17/14 2021 for Sale at KTM Epping in Epping, VIC | Specifications and Review Information


STEP INTO THE BIG LEAGUES

With the pro ranks within reach, the KTM 85 SX offers a real taste of the big league of motocross. Following in the footsteps of champions, every inch of this motorcycle mimics the proven design of the big bike range. A lightweight, WP-engineered frame houses its compact rocket ship of an engine, which delivers unrivalled performance and rideability. This mini warrior is the ultimate race weapon and is ready to go out and conquer all in the fight for the top step of the podium.

ENGINE

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

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

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

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 optimal 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

CLUTCH

The KTM 85 SX is fitted with a MIKUNI TMX carburetor. This 38mm 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.

CRANKSHAFT

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.

COOLING

COOLING

Maintaining the optimal engine temperature is crucial to ensuring consistent horsepower throughout the ride. The KTM 85 SX features radiators which are positioned for a lower center of gravity. Their design matches the shrouds perfectly and offers a great slim feel to the ergonomics. By using CFD technology (computational fluid dynamics) together with a clever coolant circuit routing, the innovative system ensures the optimum engine temperature for the highest performance, no matter what the conditions. The radiators also feature special protectors that serve not only as protection from flying rocks and debris but also as a brace that disperses energy around the radiators in the event of an impact.

EXHAUST

EXHAUST

The exhaust system has been designed to perfectly match the engine's power characteristics and contributes to the outstanding all-round performance and rideability. The header pipe is produced using a 3-dimensional stamping process. Once the components have been shaped, they are robot welded to ensure the highest level of quality, consistency and durability. The lightweight and compact silencer has been reworked with improved packing wool (40g lighter), guarenteeing that sweet 2-stroke sound and falling safely within the FIM noise limits.

Swingarm

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.

FRAME

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. The frames feature highly durable orange powder coating and come with standard frame protectors.

SUBFRAME

SUBFRAME

Made from lightweight aluminum, the subframe provides rear fender stability and strong support for the rider at little extra weight.

WHEELS

WHEELS

Black Excel rims and CNC-machined hubs ensure the strongest base of forward momentum on the KTM 85 SX. MAXXIS tires have been fitted to deliver exceptional straight-line stability and excellent traction on a wide variety of terrain, ensuring the power ends up where it is intended - on the ground.

FRONT SUSPENSION

FRONT SUSPENSION

The KTM 85 SX front fork features the same suspension technology found in the full-size motocross range. The WP XACT AER fork consists of a split fork design with a capsuled air spring in the left leg and the trusted oil damping system in the right leg. It offers a significant reduction of 1.0 kg in weight over conventional spring forks. Importantly, the preload adjustment is extremely simple and can be adjusted by using the single air pressure valve and supplied air pump. The design also allows for easy access to compression and rebound clickers.

REAR SUSPENSION

REAR SUSPENSION

The KTM 85 SX features a WP XACT PDS (Progressive Damping System) rear shock absorber. The design offers a high progression rate and excellent response. It allows an impressive 305 mm of rear wheel travel and is fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.

BRAKES

BRAKES

The KTM 85 SX features a newly developed Formula brake system with floating calipers - two pistons in front, one in the rear - with lightweight Wave brake discs - front 240 mm diameter, rear 220 mm. The system is the benchmark in terms of controlled action and braking performance, ensuring powerful and confident braking.

AIRBOX

AIRBOX

The KTM 85 SX airbox is designed to optimize the small space available to deliver the best possible performance, while still maintaining the highest level of filter protection. The air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel. Knowing that air literally breathes power into the motor, KTM has ensured that the process of inserting a new clean filter could not be any easier. The Twin Air B.V. filter and filter cage design features a simple fail-proof mounting system, making filter maintenance a quick, easy and accurate task.

HANDLEBAR

HANDLEBAR

The KTM 85 SX features a strong, lightweight, tapered aluminum handlebar, with a specifically shaped bend to suit the overall ergonomics. Additionally, the bike comes standard with ODI lock-on grips, which include a vulcanized grip on the right side and a lock-on grip on the left that does not require glue or wire for mounting.

Footpegs

Footpegs

The KTM 85 SX has no-dirt footpegs, which have a simple but effective self-cleaning system that ensures the footpegs return to their original position, providing complete control in all conditions.
