The Pro Circuit KTM 65 SX may plain on the outside, but it’s from average on the inside!

In the mind of a youth the best way to modify a bike is to more power at it, which (if the rider is ready for it) result in trophies, more time from school at big races with a little luck, attention from that girl at the trackside snow stand who doesn’t seem to be the bit impressed by methanol-fueled RC cars or skills.Can you see a trend here?

Pro can. A major player in the market, Pro Circuit realizes the in bringing more performance to the racing scene without ease of use or durability. In other the company specializes in turning into quick, reliable bikes that can withstand the of a sugar-fueled 8-year-old while allowing the mini dad to make back at the motor home in motos without a degree MMI.

We recently got our hands on Pro Circuit’s project bike, a ripper of a KTM 65 SX featured all of the latest and greatest in a race-ready package. With the of mini test rider Drake, we were able to a clear idea of exactly how bike ticks.Probably the biggest of the modified 65 SX is the motor. Pro Circuit it simple and sweet with careful head and cylinder helping the bike achieve peak power.

More gains were found the easy installation of one of its Works capped off by an R-304 silencer. The mod here is the Adjustable Power that essentially allows dad to the power curve to junior’s

The unit comes preset Pro Circuit with what the feels are the best settings, but it’s up to the end user to determine kind of character they the motor to have.On the track, our test rider, coming off his and modified KX65s after a season on KTMs, took time in getting used to the bike. The little KTM flew the track with the usual of a modified mini, except in case the bike was clearly hooked up to every square of dirt the knobbies came in with.

Pro Circuit dialed this in to operate on usable acceleration and delivery (rather than arm-ripping power), and the outcome was a that Derek could plenty of momentum on without to worry about the power out.When asked, the young offered a no-nonsense assessment of the bike was doing: “It has more on bottom and on top than any other I’ve ridden. It went the gears really good, and it really hard.

I don’t to shift it a lot. It’s smooth in the motor, when you out of a corner and just roll it on. I have a least favorite about it, I just love the and top power!” Derek’s father, was also pleased with how his son on the bike, and was excited by the adjustability the provides. “I think he feels comfortable on the KTM,” Barry “It has a tiny bog on hard landings, but all of the KTMs have that and not hard to get rid of.

Other than that, you can from watching that the is incredible. This really is a machine. On the adjustability of the power it’s huge for a dad to be able to on the bike and tune it.

Pro Circuit tell you what’s going on, and that point it’s what you want to do to dial it in for the This thing obviously really well, though, and a little adjustment it would be to get perfectly set up for different tracks.”


The Pro Circuit KTM 65 SX may look plain on the but it’s anything from on the inside!

The motor wasn’t the feature that this team raved about on the Pro 65. Handling-wise, a number of significant were made by the Pro Circuit in order to fine-tune the machine for the of amateur national racing. spared no expense in throwing DLC and aftermarket valving at the KTM’s and shock, along with a Cap Kit, trick anodizing and fluid.

The sum of these changes is a setup that better heat fade under conditions while providing action, increased bottoming and improved rider feel. they took all of the KTM’s suspension strong points and them by 10. According to Derek, the never bottomed out. It really good in the whoops.

It was a tad bit in the back end than my Kawasaki, but on big it was really good.” The benefits visible to Derek’s father, who saw improvements in straight-line stability and the ability to tackle big-bike-sized bumps. These improvements into increased rider as well. “If you look at what doing out there,” Barry as Derek ripped around the “he looks like he has so much confidence on the bike.

The handling is great, and right out of the you can tell it was a lot straighter everywhere. The is clearly phenomenal; it’s a in the rough stuff!” While the and suspension saw serious revisions, the of the KTM remained unchanged from the machine, as evidenced by the lack of trickery and the plain look of the expected, one aspect of the bike was increased right along the performance was the price of the machine.

The Coating Kit alone is just a grand, proof this was built for serious racers average kid most likely need DLC coatings to get around his track. However, the easy of the machine is hard to ignore, and as far as modifications go there isn’t more you could ask for from Pro

When quizzed if he thought this bike would be with the top machines in the mini Barry summed the PC KTM 65 SX up perfectly: bike wouldn’t just be with the top bikes in the class-it is the top in the class! Now I know how Derek’s does it. Some people it cheating, but it’s definitely not It’s called good
