KTM’s 2018 85 SX 17/14 was built with the serious off-road enthusiast in mind. Built-in Austria but ridden the world over, the 85 SX 17/14 was designed to be taken straight off the showroom floor and ridden away from the truck and into the elements - a 1.3-gallon tank provides fuel for the journey. Of course, a wide variety of mods for the 85 SX 17/14 are available through a number of aftermarket companies in order to help you fine-tune this KTM to your exact liking, although some of these changes may render it a competition-only machine.
In the last two decades, KTM's off-road lineup has made the Austrians the brand to beat-from the desert to the trees to the rocks, and everywhere in between. KTM's success is unprecedented, and bikes like the 85 SX 17/14 have helped catapult the brand to the top of the podium on more occasions than we can count. Machines like these have earned the overall at notorious desert races like the Dakar Rally and the Baja 1000; they've logged countless victories in the GNCC, National Enduro, and Hare & Hound circuits; they've blown us away at hard enduros like the Erzberg Rodeo and Red Bull Romaniacs, and they are all available and, as the company's tagline promises, "ready to race" right off the showroom floor.
