2012 KTM 990 SMR

2012 KTM 990 SMR


“R” means racing – and the 990 SM R is the super sport bike among the Supermotos. The 999cc LC8- V2 with 116 hp serves some extra thrust while delivering a remarkably smooth partial load response thanks to its sophisticated electronic fuel injection.

Only the finest components make it to the periphery of the SM R – components like radial Brembo Monoblock four-pot callipers on great 305mm discs, controlled by the state-of-the-art Bosch 9M+ ABS. Or the super sticky OEM Continental SportAttack tires.

Also, 48mm USD forks by WP and a rear shock from the same maker thrill with a razor sharp racing set-up as well as a highly sensitive response. Ingredients that just could not be better matched. Or simply the recipe for one of the most dynamic rides, not just in the Supermoto segment.
