KTM’s new Sx-E 5 Junior model ready to hit the market

2020 KTM SX-E 5

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.

Announced last year, this model grows with the rider while offering premium performance along with all of the benefits that electrically powered vehicles enjoy.

KTM has put a lot of effort and all of its of 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 minicycle with a comparable power output to the KTM 50 SX, yet 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 KTM engineers, the 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.

This innovative junior bike has an electric motor powered by an ultra-modern lithium-ion battery pack with a robust housing for maximum protection and safety was really at the core of the development of this new model.

The 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 aluminum handlebars and proper race ergonomics.

The SX-E 5 has undergone the same development process as the bigger SX models as raced by the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team.

“The KTM SX-E 5 is a model we’re really excited to see arrive in dealers,” said Joachim Sauer, KTM Senior Product Offroad Manager.

“It offers a premium chassis, like those on all of our SX models, but also a lot in terms of rideability thanks to the electric motor, as it’s easy to ride, but at the same time it can be super-fast without making noise.”

The new KTM SX-E 5 will be available from October 2019 at authorised KTM dealers.
