KTM 144SX – Review

When I heard about KTM’s 144cc 2-… Motocross I didn’t think much of it, than that it sounded cool. I got my first taste of one at a race, and I wasn’t even it! A local A rider had been it and was keeping up, and passing, 450 four

I knew the rider was well-experienced, but to up on a tight track with a 2-… is hard enough. I saw the damage that this could do, I was determined to get my hands on even though they cost more than the Japanese bike…

Let’s just say I was in love the day I my very own ’08 KTM 144SX. It was literally a come true, except for the that it pretty much my piggy bank. Oh well, it was it.

If you think 2-stoke motocross are …, you better wake up and this bike.

Where do I It’s not a Japanese bike, has thrown people off because have a “distinct” feel and to their bikes, while KTM has a set up. It really did not take long to to this all-new bike, and in it only took a couple for the 144SX to feel like That usually doesn’t on a big bike, considering I am only (168cm).

The ride height was a bit for me, but I could easily adjust the sag Overall it wasn’t too far off from the ‘Jap’ bikes that I’m to.

KTM’s suspension hasn’t up to par in the past. After riding the 144SX I can tell they put a lot of into this department. It was a on the stiff side for me, but I only 135-140lbs.

I don’t think I bottomed out, even on the landings, so that’s a plus! It do anything I didn’t want it to. bumps were not a problem, and if you to go through a rut, it’ll do too without making you want to up.

The only thing I really to do to make the suspension set-up for my is a few clicker adjustments and possibly springs, otherwise it worked

I couldn’t help but notice how this 144SX is when I it up. This explains why it’s so to maneuver the bike in almost any While riding this it reminded me of the CR125 I had because it so well. If you want to go somewhere, point and it will do it.

It can hit an inside rut, rail an berm, and scream down without hesitation. KTM knew they were doing they built this

And now to the part that you’ve been waiting for…. No, I you’ve been waiting It’s no secret that KTM this category on almost bike they make, and a big bore from the factory, the KTM on the top of many two-… lovers

Let’s just say that you need to modify the engine…… or that can give you more If you think you need a faster then you’re either a pro or…. well…. you like at numbers. Now lets get to the point.

Bottom-end power is nothing to about, but 125′s aren’t to be lugged around anyway. know when it hits the because that’s when the starts to wake up. Whack throttle wide open and on for the ride of your life.

know when you get on the pipe the power is unlike most

It’s not unrideable like 2 strokes, but it has enough power to do ever you want, and plenty of it. The is a little peaky combined its tall gearing, and over-rev is if you don’t want to shift the next gear right I was simply amazed at the pure it made, and how much power it put to the

There was a dyno test this bike and KTM 250F, and the took home the trophy for horsepower, as well as being close to putting out the same of torque. All I can say is, if you keep this on the pipe, get out of the way because there’s not that can stop this

Aside from having the engine in its class, excellent and great suspension, it’s not “THE BIKE” to get for everyone. It have its drawbacks, but then what bike doesn’t? I going in that buying an bike would cost a more. So, when it comes to these KTM’s, especially a parts aren’t always as and cheap to find as it would be for a .

There are other things the KTM 144/150SX that make it it’s really easy to on some parts of the bike, but you just ask yourself, “Why in the did KTM do that. ”

All in all this is an excellent race and can be used by a young rider up from 85′s that wants a 2-…, an A class that likes a 2-… bike to whip around on, or a vet that’s looking to re-live the days on a really fast and dirt bike.
