KTM’s Factory Edition models are the result of years of designing and developing factory race machines for some of the fastest riders on the planet. Hard-fought victories, title chases, lessons and experiences have led to the creation of a Factory Edition for the youngest shredders.

Topping all this off with refinements to the engine and jetting, while wrapping everything in special Factory Edition graphics and a blue gripper seat, make it the most ‘Ready to Race’ 50cc on the starting line.
