THE 2018 KTM 250 SX

The KTM 250 SX has one of the best power-to-weight ratios in the world of dirt, forming the ultimate fist against more complex 4-stroke rivals.

With enough grunt to devour all sorts of tracks and terrains and a lightweight chassis keen to skim the surface, this masterpiece of KTM’s R&D and Motorsport departments is born to lead the next pack of winners that prefer premix.

KTM engineers just love dropping weight year after year. The result: the 2018 KTM SX models are the slimmest, lightest dirt bikes out there.

The 2018 250 SX also features an extra-light subframe made of stable aluminium profiles, which tiptoe the scales at less than 900g. Plus all SX models feature an all new, tailor-made graphics kit and a Factory orange frame.

Because in this sport, champs deserve to look the part regardless of the dirt.
