CycleNews...KTM 950 SM!!

Recommended Posts

If I had a scanner handy I'd share, but this new KTM (for 2006) looks like the most fun ride on 2-wheels. Period....End of Sentence....Go Directly to Jail!

That is the 950cc Supermoto.

They also have a 990cc Duke 2.

I like this one better, the Duke is a little more streetbike looking and it has a fender just over the tire and a bigger headlight fairing. This thing would be so much fun, and dual discs with radial calipers on a such a light bike!

You know, my birthday is coming up... there are probably over 20,000 members on ThumperTalk... if every member pitched in 40 cents... 😢

I agree it looks like a ton of fun. I'm just wondering if I'll really consider this a Supermoto bike, or if it just aspires to be one. At 990cc, how light can it really be? I think that would play a huge part in being a SM in my mind - if I can't throw it around and it's not nimble and quick, I think it loses a lot of it's supermoto-ability.

Still looks like a ton of fun though.
