2016 KTM 250 SX


With enough power to excel on all sorts of tracks and terrain, combined with an extremely lightweight chassis, the 250 SX has one of the best power-to-weight ratios in motocross. The unrivalled performance of the 2-stroke engine makes it a true contender against the more complex 4-Strokes. For 2016 the 250 SX features detail improvements and new colors and graphics, but retains the same excellent chassis and engine specifications as 2015.

Updates for 2016:

  • New CNC machined triple clamp with 22 mm offset and new handlebar rubber damping system for reduced engine vibrations to the rider for less fatigue
  • Wheels with new lighter spokes with a weight reduction of 100 grams.
  • New generation Dunlop Geomax MX32 tires for traction and performance, complementing the 250 SX's handling and power
  • High-tech Brembo brakes in conjunction with newly designed and lighter Galfer Wave rotors ensuring class-leading brake performance
