2023 KTM SX-E 5

2023 KTM SX-E 5 is an all-electric mini-crosser aimed at both beginner and competitive junior riders. With zero emissions and minimal sound pollution, it takes its place at the leading edge of competitive mini-cross and provides a real-world Ready to race alternative to the petrol-powered 50 cc engine.

Featuring high-quality components that make it significantly different from the many electric mini-cycles available on the market, the KTM SX-E 5 is a fully-fledged competition motorcycle, making it more accessible to younger riders for use in areas where noise emissions are restricted.

2023 KTM SX-E 5 Features

Motor

This fully electric, battery-powered air-cooled permanent magnet motor features an extremely compact and slim design that perfectly matches the KTM SX-E 5’s smaller chassis. It’s also dust and waterproof which makes it wear and maintenance-free, while the integrated control unit (ECU) guarantees a direct, but very controllable power delivery.

Frame

The KTM SX-E 5 has a modern frame design that is made of lightweight, high-strength Chromoly steel profiles and combines maximum longitudinal stiffness with optimum torsional rigidity. The subframe is made of lightweight, fiber-glass reinforced extruded plastic elements, which can be mounted in two positions for different seat heights. This means that the KTM SX-E 5 can ‘grow’ with your young racer.

Handlebar

The KTM SX-E 5 uses high-quality tapered NEKEN handlebars, made of aluminum alloy ensuring top stability and safety. Its diameter tapers from 28 mm in the central area, to 22 mm in the bends, to 18 mm in the handhold area. This allows for a thinner lock-on ODI grip to be mounted on the left side while the right side features a newly developed throttle assembly with a vulcanized ODI grip, specifically developed for the electronic drive. An additional crash pad on the handlebar brace protects the rider from rough contact.

Decals

The 2023 KTM SX-E 5 features the latest in-mold graphics, with a bold orange and blue design that perfectly sets off the factory-look orange frame, orange seat and race-sharpened bodywork.

Ride Modes

A multifunctional instrument display is located between the steering head and seat. Here, the user can select between the six different ride modes. Each mode offers different power characteristics suited for pure beginners all the way up to experienced racers. The instrument also displays the remaining charge of the battery.

Battery

The KTM SX-E 5 is fitted with 84 modern lithium-ion cells in a robust die-cast aluminum casing that is mounted just above the electric motor. This means the stored energy is 907 Wh, which is enough for more than two hours of riding for a beginner and approximately 25 min full-throttle racing, depending on conditions and terrain. The integrated battery management system (BMS) ensures the safety and longevity of the battery pack.

Safety

The KTM SX-E 5 is fitted with a rollover sensor that cuts off the power in the event of a fall, while a wrist lanyard cut-off key stops the motor in the event of an uncontrollable riding scenario. For further safety measures, the ride modes can be locked and saved with a dongle located below the seat. This prevents younger, less experienced riders from changing to more powerful ride modes on their own.
