The KTM Company has put itself in one number with powerful Japanese manufacturers. During many years people had a wrong performance about that, firm KTM whence has appeared, in what direction she develops also what purposes pursues. This year at many people worldwide eyes, at last, have opened, Grant Langston has won the National Championship in a class 125 cube. Now KTM enjoys light of spotlights, and the general attention is chained to firm of model SX125 with high potential has shown serious advantages before other stamps in our comparative test.

During that part of testing in which we arranged arrivals for a while, racer Mett Armstrong has managed on KTM 125SX to surpass the record of passage of a circle almost for two seconds. Though it is very interesting and it is useful to read opinions of drivers - verifiers on this motorcycle, time for a circle remains indisputable result. The essence consists that new model KTM is made at the highest level.


In the past the weakest part was controllability of models KTM. Since then the suspension bracket of stamp WP has passed a long way of development. The changes brought in a new suspension bracket, are really appreciable in comparison with the last years version of model. The plug and the shock-absorber are susceptible to step-by-step adjustment, and the majority of our drivers - verifiers have without effort arranged bike under their individual preferences. The shock-absorber works well in the majority of situations, but the back part at absence of a binding element creates nonconventional sensations. Model KTM 125SX creates impression of very narrow motorcycle, and the majority of our motorcyclists have appreciated this feature, they liked to feel the machine on a rough surface when it is required to change the position in a saddle constantly. All of us up to depth of soul were struck with capacity of model KTM 125 SX. The firm very tensely worked, and it has born the fruits. The KTM SM cannot even come nearer to characteristics of motor KTM. From the bottom range of distribution and up to the end the motor possesses high and vigorous draft. The best feature of this motor consists that he possesses good, useful capacity which can be supervised. Besides the orange machine in regular release is completed with lamellar valve Moto Tassinari V-Force. More specs and user manual of KTM 125 SX you can see in next overview.
