A great way to get a lifelong racer is to tune their skills when they are young. With a mini dirt bike like the KTM 50 SX your child can learn the ropes of motocross and racing. Intended for 4–10-year-olds, the 50 SX is a pint-size moto machine with its two-stroke 49cc single-cylinder engine and an adjustable multi-disc automatic clutch that make it ideal for those who are learning to ride by taking the shifting technique out of the equation. The mini moto also has a lightweight chassis that follows the developments made in 2019. It is equipped with WP Xact 35mm inverted fork and a WP Xact shock, 160mm disc brakes front and rear, and is kickstarted.
If you’re in the market for a 50cc two-stroke motocross bike for your young grom, the most comparable option rolls off the same assembly line as the 50 SX, which is the Husqvarna TC 50. As far as displacement goes, there are plenty of other 50cc machines on the market, though they are more beginner and trail-oriented. The realm of little tyke bikes include the Yamaha PW50, Honda CRF50F, Suzuki DR-Z50, and Yamaha TT-R50E.
The cast aluminum swingarm is new and provides enhanced stability and easier chain adjustment—the latter of which parents could appreciate. New graphics for 2020 also align it with the designs of the larger SX models. The starting price of this machine is $4,349.
