See now...

That's an arguement for the ages. But when I first saw this I went, "WTF? Hopefully that 'T' standing for 'Touring'." Which, IMO, would give it that silly fairing...I guess.



I personally just don't see what really seperates it from, say, a Duke?


I'd ride it though, of course.


Right up the 1 hole.

Well it is a Supermoto of sorts. It is a Touring version of the 990 SM which is from the 990 Super Enduro which is a rocking offroad street legal bike but yes it does have a v twin. Sure as hell has more dirt heritage than lets say the Duc Hypermotard. I would ride it! And like Nunya said KTM ROCKS!

Maybe in it's original form, but from my experience, don't most truly race-prepped lose quite a bit of travel once stiffened up for SM use?

Or not. Just asking.
