Back in June, KTM revealed seven new models as part of its of its new off-road-ready enduro lineup . Now, the Austrian motorcycle manufacturer is expanding its range even further with the release of a new Factory Edition model.
This said model, however, doesn’t promise performance that equals or even comes close to the seven bikes we previously mentioned. This new KTM bike is the 50 SX Factory Edition. If the nameplate sounds familiar, then that’s because KTM Philippines just launched the 50 SX Mini locally back in March. This new Factory Edition model is basically a “purebred race machine” version of that particular junior-friendly ride.
Apart from the special Factory Edition graphics, this new 50 SX boasts a host of upgrades including the Dunlop Geomax MX 53 tires wrapped around lightweight aluminum rims and the standard FMF exhaust setup. The latter consists of a Powercore 2 silencer and a Fatty pipe. There’s also a WP Suspension setup underneath along with high-end brakes.
Powering the tiny bike is a two-stroke 50cc mill that KTM says was designed specifically for better handling and performance. The bike’s multi-disc automatic clutch has been reconfigured for better power delivery, and can be easily adjusted according to the rider’s preferences without having to use special tools.
Other added features here are the CNC clutch and ignition cover, the gray grips, and the blue gripper seat that matches the bike’s exterior colorway.
KTM says the new 50 SX Factory Edition will be available at authorized KTM dealers across the globe starting October 2020. No word yet, however, if that’ll include our market or not. As for its pricing, the KTM US website says the bike will start at $5,199, or around P255,000 in local currency.
Anyway, what do you think? Would you want to see this make its way over to our shores?
