KTM 990 SUPERMOTO R ABS 2013: THE FIGHTING MACHINE

A state-of-the-art V2 engine with electronic injection and impressive punch, a perfectly balanced chassis, a complete package of high-quality components: the 990 SM R is the most radical twin-cylinder Supermoto on the market. – and also one of the safest thanks to the superb Bosch 9M+‑ABS. All the more astounding that it is just as much fun in the urban jungle as it is ticking off passes and out on the racetrack. One of the most dynamic, yet at the same time versatile machines, not only in the Supermoto segment.
