The Orange Track-Hawks Land On the Fourth
When thinking of where KTM fits on the off-road spectrum, I like to imagine them as the Ducati’s of the dirt. Dirt-Ducatis; expensive and built to perform. The SX model range is a popular choice for both professionals and weekenders seeking high-quality dirtbikes ready to dominate off the lot.
On May 4th (May the fourth be with you), KTM plans of unveiling the entire 2022 range of SX off-road bikes. With Red Bull KTM absolutely dominating most offroad divisions (Dakar, anyone?), it makes sense that riders seeking the pinnacle off-road riding experience would gravitate heavily towards KTM’s SX family of motocross bikes.
KTM claims that the new SX bikes are “closer than ever before to the championship-winning bikes of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing stars”, but we’ll let the reviews and feature list dictate whether or not that claim is true or false.
FIM Motocross World Champions Jeffrey Herlings and Tom Vialle will be featured in a video on release, ripping the 2022 KTM 450 SX-F and KTM 125 SX models around the track to later give their “unbiased” feedback on the bikes.
Regardless of the chatter leading up to the release date, I’m sure KTM will have something special to present as their motocross line is unequivocally their bread-and-butter when it comes to production motorcycles.
