Start Slowly! Security for the Racer of the Future!
For all the little racers who received a KTM SX 50 or a KTM SX 50 MINI for Christmas, KTM offers a restrictor kit.
This kit – containing all the necessary mounting pieces for the clutch and the new transmission, carburetor, slide cover and main jet as well as exhaust trim reduces the performance of the SX 50 and SX 50 MINI by approximately 70% and allows all parents to watch their protégés first laps with greater piece of mind.
A Full View – Even in Poor Visibility
All SM T- and Adventure riders who want to ride even in poor visibility by night or fog and need the best possible perspective can be pleased that the newly developed KTM Additional Lamp Kit is now available. The wide beam angle of the additional headlight provides a highly optimized illumination of the road surface and is therefore a big plus in safety.
The Additional Headlight Kit, consisting of two additional lamps, connection cables and mounting bolts, is available from February 2012 at any KTM dealer.
The “Never Give Up” Pit Beirer Collection – support for ‘Wings for Life” included
A brand new Pit Beirer Collection is immediately available at all KTM dealers. “Never give up!”, the life’s motto of Pit Beirer – KTM’s Head of Motorsport and former Motocross racer – runs through this exclusive collection each consisting of a T-shirt for a racer or girl, plus a unisex beanie with Pit’s signature.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of these articles goes to "Wings for Life", the foundation for spinal cord research founded by Heinz Kinigadner, himself a former champion rider.
Pit Beirer describes how much his motto for life means to him in a couple of sentences: “There is a guide that extends through my whole life, whether as a professional sportsman or today in my profession: ‘NEVER GIVE UP’. Every big goal begins with a dream; when you apply a lot of effort and work hard on it and refuse to be stopped by any headwind, you will achieve your goal. Anyone who is “Ready to Race” and lives his dream will feel very comfortable in the Pit Beirer Collection.“
KTM TECH HELMET 12 – the Lightweight among Off-road Helmets
The new KTM Offroad Helmet (manufactured by Marushin) is, with its 1.080 g (!) an absolute lightweight on the market.
In stylish orange, black and white KTM design, the TECH HELMET 12 doesn’t just look good, it also has ingenious features: side goggle-band management, flexible and adjustable peak, effective ventilation system and completely removable and washable cheek pads and lining – practical for all strenuous and sweaty rides.
The shell shape of the TECH HELMET 12 is designed for use with a neck brace and the M.A.R.O. II (Marushin Anti Roll Off) security system prevents the helmet from ever inadvertently slipping from the head.
KTM Lifestyle on Your Wrist
Matching the current PowerWear Collection, KTM also offers watches for every lifestyle and purpose.
The DIGITAL WATCH – simple and classic with a black dial and wristband as well as a polished steel case – also offers, alongside the date display and stop and alarm functions, the possibility to switch the time to a digital LED display in the background. Nevertheless, this is an item that also suits the smaller budget.
The completely black CHRONO LIMITED with its seamless case, robust plastic strap and small orange details is even more sporty in look and function: stop function, massive steel case and water proof to 50 m. The high-quality Citizen Miyota movement and the fact that it is a limited edition that is individually numbered on the reverse of the case make this watch a particularly exclusive item for every KTM fan.
