2013 KTM SX Two Stroke Lineup
For 2013 KTM has made a few changes to their already great lineup.
All of the 2013 SX’s get the larger 25mm rear axle and a tougher one-piece cast alluminum swingarm. Spokes are anodized black.
The 125 and 150 motors stay the same this year, they do get new plastics and graphics.
For 2013 the 250SX gets stiffer fork springs, DDS (Damped Diaphragm Steel) clutch, Moto Tassinari VForce4 reed block and all-orange plastics. The new clutch uses a single Belleville washer-style spring, steel basket and is 5.5mm narrower than the previous coil spring clutch. It also gets a new clutch cover to finish it off.
Below you can see the new internally threaded gas cap. Further forward you get redesigned triples and taller Renthal 1 1/8? 827 Bars.
We are pleased to see KTM keeping the R&D going on the Two Stroke line. Needless to say, we can’t wait to test them!
