KTM is into diversity and we couldn’t get a better than the 150 SX. This thing is powered by the liquid-cooled, 143.6 cc, two-… engine, which is capable of translating its torque and into a greater rush that provided by any of the 250 cc, four-… bikes out there, including 250 SX-F. That is why the Austrian have mounted the engine on the competitive chassis, one that is different than on the previous model and even more

The seat is now positioned at 38.78 than at 36.42) inches the ground and it stands for a seriously dirt bike destined to fitting the same description. The clearance level hasn’t modified, neither the wheelbase nor the angle. Still, it does a 2.11 gallons tank of the previous 1.98 gallons

What really helps us the 150 SX a competition bike is the suspension composed from the 48 mm WP USD fork 11.81 inches of wheel and the WP PDS shock absorber that is of an even more impressive inches of wheel travel. The aren’t at all disappointing as the 150 SX works petal-style discs (260 mm and 220 mm rear) mounted on the Excel that are by now a consecrated KTM feature.

in apparel and performance, this bike lines up perfectly to requirements of the market, but we’ve to find that the fact of it new has nothing to do with that.


In fact, the bike was new back in 2007 when it was introduced as the KTM 144 SX and the biggest change, in 2009 is the name. Originally, it in to fill the gap between the 125 SX and the 250 SX and its name was by the engine’s displacement. Although didn’t changes in 2009, seeing that number rounded up.


Filling in the gap the 125 SX and 250 SX, it would be natural for the 150 SX to look a combination between the two models, but not the case with dirt In fact, the three look identical, the engine being the difference and that doesn’t out from the visual point of What makes the KTM 150 SX so great is from the very first it stands as an indicator of its capabilities.

A veritable mountain goat large diameter wheels front and 19-inch rear) high mounted and aggressive the bike is built for harsh and soaking up bumps.

The Austrians this an “Off-road Competition” and considering that it doesn’t a headlight, KTM’s description is accurate. So you’re supposed to get an off-road and a motocross machine up in the aggressive side panels orange decals and the manufacturer’s Masking the already small are the side number plates, are white for a racier look.

In between those and the seat read “150 SX” and go “yeah, it’s exactly the I thought it was”.

As before the seat is pretty tall inches from the ground) and the will grab on the Renthal bars while supporting on the middle-mounted pegs. So, due to the also riding position, the 150 SX inclines on the motocross side rather on the off-road one. That’s what we’ve come to during last year’s run, which is reflective to day as performance figures haven’t modified and neither the overall (200.2 lbs) of the new model.

Test Ride


The KTM 150 SX comes with a $6,198 which positions it, indeed, in the models that lead to its but I’m having a feeling it isn’t the price that people to buy this model.

It’s all about the riding that only two-… can deliver across their power and torque curves with the excellent handling that the chassis is capable of. this is a new model, KTM is experienced in two-strokes so built quality and reach the highest levels for the type of motor.
