The perfect motocross bike for young beginners

For KTM, 2019 it isn’t all about power, speed and back to back MX championships. In keeping with their passion for innovation, KTM have announced the release of the KTM SX-E 5, a fully electric off road bike aimed at youngsters.

The KTM SX-E 5 is based off the popular KTM 50 SX with a high-end chassis powered by an adjustable electric motor. KTM’s mission was clear: to create an ultra-competitive machine that is also easy to ride, even for pure beginners.

Zero emissions, low noise and minimal maintenance make the KTM SX-E 5 the perfect ‘first bike’. The bike is designed to grow with its rider. The seat height is fully adjustable and as the rider becomes more confident, the power can easily be increased to replicate a 2-stroke bike.

KTM Product Manager Offroad Joachim Sauer is excited about the KTM SX-E 5’s ability to encourage a new crop of off road riders to fall in love with the sport.

“[This] is a great way to get more kids on two-wheels,” says Sauer. “This bike will be super-user friendly. Our 50s currently are almost race bikes and for beginners they are too strong. With electric you can make any type of power or power-delivery that is much more controllable. This will open the field and for the minicycles I’m confident that 50 is just the start.”
