WHAT’S IT COST? $219.99 (front fender, rear fender, Powerflow shrouds, side panels, fork guards and Stadium front number plate).

WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand out with the new Cycra Powerflow 2016–2017 KTM body kit.


(1) Performance. The Cycra Powerflow body kit is made in the United States. Most aftermarket plastic parts are sold as replacement parts or for cosmetic updates, but Cycra’s Powerflow system increases performance, improving airflow through the radiators by harnessing Bernoulli’s effect to increase air velocity. The MXA wrecking crew has tested Cycra plastic everywhere—from Glen Helen to Loretta Lynn’s to Joe Gibbs’ test track—it is as tough as plastic gets. We have always been impressed with how colorfast the plastic is. Even after a long, hot summer of racing, the bike still looks bright and shiny.

(2) Installation. The Cycra Powerflow body kit mounts easily, but since KTM uses a variety of different-sized bolts and screws, be sure to lay the hardware out in an orderly fashion to help the installation process go smoothly. We have to give kudos to KTM for the design of its 2016 and 2017 bodywork. In the past, replacing rear fender and side number plates was a major chore, but it’s less of a hassle on the new bikes. The only tricky part of installing the rear fender is sliding it over the rear spars of the subframe. The side panels are a breeze to install compared to the previous number plates, which were part of the airbox. Cycra’s side number plates bolt on easily. The KTM’s front fender has a unique mounting system, with two bolts below the triple clamp and two bolts in front of it. The hardest part of putting the Cycra front fender on is holding the shouldered washers in place while tightening the bolts. To assist in this process, we placed a dab of grease on the washers to keep them secured properly. The Cycra Stadium front number plate has extensions that go down the fork legs to protect them from dings. We put stickers behind the extensions so that they wouldn’t rub and create a dull spot on the fork-leg coating over time.

(3) Appearance. Cycra doesn’t just make cookie-cutter plastic parts. The Cycra Powerflow body kit looks cutting edge. The MXA wrecking crew has always appreciated the effort Cycra puts into the design.

(4) Options. The Cycra KTM Powerflow shroud kit is available for all 2016 and 2017 KTM motocross models (and Cycra has bodywork kits available for earlier KTMs as well). There are four color choices: orange, blue, white or black.
