You want a fun bike to ride no matter your age? Or maybe your little ripper at home is outgrowing their 85? The 2020 KTM 125 SX is a blast to ride for my old ass, and my 13-year-old son loves it too. KTM is still developing two-strokes, and this 125 SX is fast yet controllable, which makes it a blast to ride for any age or skill level. With the added torque that the 2019 125 SX received, as well as the updated frame changes in 2018, the 2020 125 SX is a refined version of the past two models. Having a 125cc engine that can please both dad and son is tough around this household, but KTM managed to put a smile on both of our faces. We pass this machine back and forth on any given ride day, and it’s held up superbly with almost 40 hours on it.
We are deeply rooted in Moto—We’ve been here all our lives. Back in 1998 when we turned an underground newspaper into a shiny color magazine, it immediately changed the game with its unprecedented depth of coverage, sense of humor, and access to the sport’s biggest names. Today, our readers know they can go to Racer X Online for all the news, race results, and event coverage they need, and then enjoy even more detail and perspective in the pages of Racer X Illustrated. The mag offers a chance to learn something new on every page and stay connected with the people and personalities that shape our sport—the competitors out on the racetrack, as well as the ones behind the scenes—through our exclusive deep-dive stories and columns.
Our trademark has always been insider knowledge from the experts who are at the races and around the sport. We have long prided ourselves on our unparalleled race reporting and detailed storytelling. We go deep with the riders and teams to provide comprehensive coverage you won’t find anywhere else—all with first-class photography and design. It’s a full education in motocross past, present, and future.
