For the competing racers who want to win

The KTM 85 SX 19/16 is designed to give every aspiring motocross racer a feel of the big world as every inch of design on this bike mimics the bikes of champions. In fact, this is one of the finest bikes as you can just take it out of the showroom and head to the racing tracks!

A key highlight of this bike is the lightweight and yet sturdy frame that makes it easy to handle this kids motorbike with relative ease for most kids aged around 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old. Needless to say, it delivers top-notch performance and comfort to the rider.

All these multitudes of features are geared for those who are overrun by challenges and want to race to the top of the podium, and this is why a lot of thought and engineering has gone into each part of the dirt bike.
