The chassis on the 2012 KTM 50SX is equipped exclusively with high-quality components from the sturdy chrome-molybdenum steel frame to the newly developed WP upside-down fork. The torsionally, extremely stiff 1.38 in telescopic fork with new, forged triple clamps and 7.28 in suspension travel provides perceptibly better ride stability and more comfortable suspension. With High-quality brakes, hydraulically actuated disc brakes, with wave type brake rotors at the front and rear.
Aluminum alloy Renthal handlebars designed specifically for the 2012 KTM 50SX contribute to the ergonomic package for optimum control. Power is now even more controllable with the new Domino throttle grip. The new, dual-compound rubber grips on the handlebar provide a secure hold for the hands, with the cross bar bearing a crash pad should you need one.
The liquid-cooling system of the 2012 KTM 50 SX, with two large radiators and additional cooling for the crankcase, prevents the engine from overheating, even under the most extreme loads. Besides that, the smallest KTM can still take a fair bit of punishment from bike-to-bike contact or contact with the ground.
