2023 KTM 50 SX Factory Edition First Look: For Sale

The big kids don’t get to have all the fun, and that’s why the 2023 KTM 50 SX Factory Edition exists. The Factory Edition of the micro-racer takes the standard 50 SX and adds an impressive collection of upgrades for a bidding Supercross World Champion. Although only the graphics are new this year, it’s worth reviewing how the Factory Edition earns that lofty moniker.

  1. The new Factory Edition has an FMF expansion chamber and silencer for additional power. The jetting is altered to match the changed flow characteristics.

  1. The tires are upgraded to Dunlop Geomax MX53 rubber.

  1. The 2023 KTM 50 SX Factory Edition will set you back $5599. That’s a $900 bump up from the standard model.
