Try before you buy in style with 2018 SX motocross test days

KTM is offering riders across the UK the chance to sample exactly why so many champions around the globe choose the SX range of motocross machinery as their weapon of choice.

Running from the end of June through to August 2018, KTM offroad days provide the opportunity to test a 2018 adult SX machine – from 125 to 450cc, two-stroke and four-stroke - at leading race tracks across the UK.

With another AMA Supercross title in the cupboard for Ryan Dungey to polish in his retirement, Tony Cairoli currently leading the MXGP world standings and Pauls Jonass replicating this position in MX2, Marvin Musquin charging hard in the AMA outdoor series and Ben Watson flying the flag at home, it’s clear that the SX range is delivering results for all of KTM’s factory riders. But it’s not just those with factory contracts that can take advantage of the inherent benefits of the range, and riders and racers of all standards can appreciate the attributes of every model in the SX stable.

Within the 2018 SX range, the KTM 125 SX and KTM 150 SX now feature new aluminum head stays, as well as a new CDI control unit for improved starting behaviours. As with all of KTM serial equipment, the 4-stroke range, including the KTM 250 SX-F, KTM 350 SX-F and KTM 450 SX-F, boasts high-quality, class-leading components from the all-important E-starter, to the WP suspension, traction control and map selection, and much more to compliment the super lightweight, yet powerful championship winning engines.

In addition, the complete model year 2018 SX range including both 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines feature revised suspension settings in the WP AER 48 forks, along with a factory-looking orange frame plus, brand new graphics to finish the look. As always, these bikes are READY TO RACE right out of the crate and we look forward to you trying them for yourselves.

Aimed at experienced motocross riders only (from age 15 and over) the KTM Offroad Day is being run in conjunction with Barry Johnson’s highly acclaimed KTM Motocross Experience set up at a range of tracks across the country. Each KTM Offroad Day offers a rider the chance to ride in two 20-minute sessions on two SX machines of his or her choice. Technical insight and a briefing will be provided by Barry and his team at each event. Available bikes include;

2-stroke – 125SX, 150 SX, 250 SX
4-stroke – 250 SX-F, 350 SX-F, 450 SX-F

The Offorad day will cost £50, and to book please contact KTM UK’s official motocross experience school on the web at  or on the phone on 01543 271675. Details of each machine are available at  or through a KTM dealer.
