    Before I bought my SD, I was actually looking for an SMT or SMR, but couldn't find one.
    I can't wait for this to come out ... could there be a 1290 SMR, too? Decisions, decisions!

    Just do it. I had a hoot on the 1290 SD, I can only imagine a couple more inches of travel comfort. One downside is I suspect you'll be burning through a lot of rear tires.

    This bike may go straight to the top of my wish list.

    I rode a 990SMT 'back when' and loved it, but it had a few flaws (all reported in KTM forums - no mysteries), and the remoteness of the local dealer was off-putting too. so I bought a Honda...

    but the big new SMT certainly tickles one's fancy! and not just mine...

    Spy Shots: 1290 KTM SMT. Challenge and Multistrada 1000 S XR!


    From the technical basis of maxinuda KTM SuperDuke R derives a versatile tourist by many request. The SMT 1290 (let's call it) would stand beside the crossover "sport-tourist" 160 bhp BMW and Ducati, not overlapping the sister globe trotter 1290 Super Adventure

    In Cologne and Milan, KTM has ... given gas with the innovations in the field of road enduro: in Germany came the flagship 1290 Super Adventure , at EICMA the "entry level" 1050 Adventure . Last year was the year of the big naked, with that in 1290 SuperDuke R that the Super Adventure gave the engine (and that was one of the protagonists of our comparative maxinaked in Catalunya ). Now it seems that the family "1290" is going to widen further.

    GET THE HEIR OF SMT 990

    If the Super Adventure is too Juno and SuperDuke R is too aggressive (though in our tests proved to be much more affordable than we expected), it seems that in a 1290 KTM have on site in a more sports-tourism, a road versatile and voted to travel but fun to drive, alone or in pairs. In short, the heir of the SMT 990. Already the version "travel" of SuperDuke R had remembered to many ( look in the gallery a couple of graphic design found on the net and the official photos of the SDR), but now are circulating on web of spy photos that confirm the imminent arrival of a KTM "SMT" but bigger.

    DAUGHTER OF BARE SUPER DUKE R ...

    The images (that we found online, such as on www.asphaltandrubber.com and www.visordown.com ) clearly show a motorcycle built on the platform of the big naked. Witness certainly the layout of the trellis frame and swingarm monobracccio, but also that of the motor (the exhaust is almost identical). The wheels are both 17, for now equal to those of the naked and fit tires road to 100%.


    ... BUT DRESSED TRAVEL

    What will change? The body - as heavily disguised - is clearly more extensive and protective, also has a front by the evident family feeling but all new, with high windshield and an optical low-sharpened and inserted into a kind of reinterpretation of the concept of a beak. The suspension then seem a little higher (as the handlebars) and clearly is unprecedented across the back with attacks for suitcases integrated in the handles and the media platforms of the passenger. Presumably also the frame is new and reinforced for the most likely use in pairs (note the saddle split) and with luggage. In this regard, the pictures can be seen that the exhaust system is a lot on the right marked by obvious scrape the fold: on the suspension there is still work, or the testers have a lot of fun. Good sign or not? Better comfort and more opportunities to fold?

    180 or 160 bhp KTM WANTS JOGGING OR BEAT MULTISTRADA ES 1000 XR?

    And the fun should not just fail, because the engine looks like the "milletré" SuperDuke of R, a V2 at 75 ° to 180 hp and 144 Nm of torque (see here the video of the "Beast" at the counter of Motorcycling) . Sure, it might be more appropriate on a bike like this version of "only" 160 hp and 140 Nm mounted on Super Adventure, numbers that would allow the "1290 SMT" to fight on equal terms with the new Ducati Multistrada and with BMW S 1000 XR , because the electronic side "orange" does not miss anything, especially if it were to be implemented on the new bike all the new goodies introduced models presented to the halls, such as the Bosch ABS system that works even when cornering (in KTM call MSC, Motorcycle Stability Control: here our test ).

    Changes to the big naked are, ultimately, technically quite limited and authorize to think that it should not move that much time before the debut: we will know more from summer 2015.

    CDG has had the same bike for what... 4 seasons now? I can see this change coming. The car was last year... and if this is available, I guarantee
    you it will be in his garage.
