Lightbulb Motorcyclist supermoto comparo. - May 16, 2008, 07:32 AM

June issue. There's a write up on the more streetable supermoto types. Nice to have some thoughts on how they perform on the road.

Here's how they rated them.
  • 4th place: Buell xb12stt
  • 3rd place: Duck Hypermotard
  • 2nd place: BMW HP2 Megamoto (love the name)
  • 1st place: KTM Supermoto R


No matter what you think of the results, five years ago you didn't have much to choose from. Things have changed for the better.

Buell? What?

WTF. You can't call the Buell an SM even using the most lax definition of SM.

I said it before and I'll say it again; the whole trend of introducing pig sized bikes with 1/2 the power of sportbikes isn't a good trend. If I'm gonna get a 60hp bike, I still want it to have decent power to weight ratio. The bike should also handle some small jumps without looking like it's gonna fall apart. It should also crash decently well.

How did KTM 625SMC and 690SMC rank?

If we are considering the company, the Buell is just fine.... they are ALL simply naked bikes with SM styling.

I agree...

to me a "supermoto" is a thumper...a bike capable of pavement/dirt/jump styles of riding.

What I like about motardish bikes is that you ride sitting up (6 feet tall, no problem), ya got funky styling, effortless riding, and wheelies/stoppies are sooooo easy.
