If you like your supermotos supersized, KTM has your fix.
The Austrian bike maker’s Canadian distributor will bring in the 990 SMR for 2011.
This isn’t a kid’s bike, with its liquid-cooled 990 cc 75-degree V-twin pumping out 116 hp and 71-lb-ft of torque.
The upright seating position, wide handlebar, supersport-sized radial rubber and claimed 191 kg (422 lb) weight (without fuel) assure that this bike will do damage to your driver’s license. Seat height is a lofty 875 mm (34.5 in) and tank capacity is 19 litres.
WP suspension at both ends is fully adjustable and high-spec, Brembo radial-mount calipers should provide enough stopping power for effortless brakies.
MSRP should be announced shortly.
