2011 KTM 50 SXS
The KTM 50 SXS will be legal for racing in AMA stock classes, and conversion kits are available to upgrade your current 50 SX to the SXS model.

KTM North America will be unloading its newest 2011 machine – the KTM 50 SXS – just in time for the holidays. The new model builds off the original 50 SX, but includes new features to give it an edge on the race track. Designed for riders between the ages of four to 10, the SXS is intended as a serious race machine and comes equipped with high-quality components.
“The 50 SXS is built to provide elite 50 racers across the country with a true race bike that is capable of showcasing their talent,” said KTM Product Line Manager John Hinz. “Although the production on the bikes is limited, the 50 SXS will be legal for AMA stock classes. Additionally, a SXS kit or individual components can be purchased through your authorized KTM dealer to take your current 50 SX to the SXS level.”
Some of the biggest new design elements to hit the mini track-eating machine are the KTM PowerParts which are available stock on the new 50 SXS. PowerParts which are standard on the bike include: SXS clutch setting, throttle assembly, Renthal diamond grips and a 38-T rear sprocket.
The SXS also includes a Race Tech SXS Shock with preload and rebound adjustability, an FMF SXS pipe with silencer and Race Tech SXS Fork internals with internal compression damping adjustability.
