TECH SPECBetter than ever in 2011 thanks

to leading ABS technology:

the long-distance Supermoto

990 SMT

From its launch in the spring of 2009, the

KTM 990 SMT triggered a flood of enthusiastic

comments. Reaching another sport

motorcycle milestone for KTM, its new and

unique concept was the first to combine

the dynamism of an agile Supermoto with

the benefits of a true long-distance

The incredibly versatile two-cylinder

Supermoto enters the biking season of

2011 with a decisive innovation. An ABS

braking system tailored specifically for

the requirements of the SMT makes for

perfect deceleration under any conditions,

rendering the 990 the Queen of

negative acceleration without sacrificing

any of its vigour.

Exciting sophisticated

The state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled V-Twin

with KTM’s typical, favourable cylinder

angle of 75° remains at the core of the

long-distance Supermoto. Weighing in at

an unrivalled 58kg, the 999cc, 115 bhp

engine stands for crushing power, high

refinement and impressive control. In a

nutshell: exhilarating performance in a

sophisticated package. And just what the

special concept of the 990 SMT requires.

Looking at the chassis, the latest issue

of the 990 SMT also delivers exactly

what KTM riders expect: stability all

the way up to top speed; a top quality

suspension that soaks up every bump

while delivering a crisp feedback; ultraprecise

steering; and above all, as befits

a true Supermoto, superior flickability.

This effortlessness is achieved by purposely

eliminating any and all unnecessary

components, finding smart design solutions,

and using only first rate materials.

At a curb weight of 197 kilos including

the ABS, the 2011 model remains below

the magical 200 kilo margin, an impressive

demonstration of the KTM developers’

prowess and ambition.

High End Deceleration Support

Some of the credit for the low weight

is due to the anti-lock braking system,

available for the first time on the 2011

SMT, that weighs in at only one kilogram.

In close collaboration with specialist

supplier Bosch, the latest-generation

dual channel system has been specifically

adapted to the requirements of a

very sporty Supermoto. It is matched to a

high-performance Brembo braking system

with radial four pot callipers on 305mm

discs, tailored to deliver outstanding

control and awesome stopping power. The

result is a sensitive ABS braking system

that lets the 990 SMT stop safely and

with pinpoint accuracy on any surface

and from any speed.

Equipped with rollover detection, the

functions of the KTM-Bosch system have

been purposely designed not to interfere

with an aggressive riding style. Deploying

only in truly extreme situations, it

will keep out of your way as long as the

surface is dry and provides sufficient

grip. The system may also be switched

off at any time for off-road outings.

Production of 990 SMT, now available

with ABS in high gloss orange, white, or

black, will commence in February, 2011.

As befits its wide range of uses, KTM

offers a multitude of bespoke parts and

equipment from its range of Power Parts

accessories, be it in order to enhance the

sporty credentials even further or to add

even more touring capabilities. The KTM

990 SMT remains the first choice for the

most extensive riding enjoyment on any

road, at any speed, and – as of 2011 –

in any weather.
