The KTM SX-E 1.16 is the perfect choice for little rippers with some experience on a balance bike, and are a little taller and / or more familiar with riding electric balance bikes in need a larger platform. Your child should have an inseam of 45 cm or more to adequately touch the ground with a slight bend in the knees for optimum sizing. Your child can learn to push, balance, and coast in the Non-Powered mode. Graduate them to the powered mode (the holy grail of fun) as they show proficient use and understanding of the brake and the ability to coast and brake while standing. Start them with a speed similar to what they can push the non-powered version at, and they learn the use of the twist throttle, and a long coast turn into a constant use of throttle and giggles. As they continue to develop skills, the medium speed of the KTM SX-E 1.16 allows for an exceptional amount of fun outdoors, getting thousands of hours of hand-eye coordination, balance, and outdoor exercise.
The KTM SX-E 1.16 electric balance bikes offer a unique opportunity to share the sport of motorcycling with the young champions of tomorrow. They can look just like their KTM FACTORY RACING heroes, with numbers and all, while mastering balance and throttle control as they prepare to graduate to a larger platform.
