Question KTM 990 SUPERMOTO-R Thread???

I've been riding a KTM 990 Supermoto-R since last fall.
It is still the only one I have ever seen.
I had to travel over 450 miles to get it because there weren't any closer at the time.
Is there anyone else out there who rides one of these things?

Has anyone started a 990 Supermoto-R thread, or is this it?





Photos by _Anatic . . . Thanx for the help Shane.




Windscreen, bashplate, front axle sliders & crashbars from KTM Hardparts.


Older style Akrapovics, G2ergo throttle, Evoluzione clutch slave, and Duke mirrors.



Of course the stock clutch slave had to go. Your stock one will fail before too long.







T-Rex Spoolsliders.

Me Too.

Yeah, I've had one for about a year. There are post scattered around. Most are in the SMR thread. It's one of the biggest threads on this site and was started for the older 950's. I even did a bunch of mods to mine after I bought it and created a how-to web site. SMR MODS HOW TO

I've never ran into any one with one either, which is nice I did see one at the moto GP races in Monterey last year, but thats the only one. There are a few people that have them as you will see when you look around this site, but there aren't many of us that's for sure.
Cheers

Yeah I just looked back at the other thread "950 Supermoto Chronicles", things huge, and mostly related to the Carb'd 950's. For the few people in the world that have this bike, I guess we deserve our own FI 990 thread.

Yeah Tomoto,
That is a HUGE thread.
I waded around in it for a while to see if I could find any 990SM-R stuff, and finally gave up.








Thanx for the SMR MODS HOW TO in Post #2

I agree.
I had two KTM 950's.
The fuel-injected 990 is a different animal with a different personality (and a whole new look too!)

2010 KTM SMR 990 Specs

Any good bike thread needs some base specs right?

Overview

After being out of the lineup for two years, KTM's big-bore supermoto SMR is back, this time with a 999cc V-Twin engine instead of the previous model's 942cc motor. The SMR offers an excellent combination of supermoto agility with the ample power and torque of its fuel-injected engine. The ergonomics provide an ideal seating position for upright sporty riding or back-it-in sliding. A low, narrow fuel tank allows the rider to scoot forward easily to weight the front end. The 990 SMR engine produces 115 hp and 73.8 lb-ft torque for a fun ride on curvy mountain roads or nice cruises through city streets. The two-colored seat, glossy fuel tank, orange powder coated frame, black swing arm, subframe, footrest, brackets and passenger handles all make this bike the center of attention anywhere you travel. The 990 SMR is equipped with a stainless steel exhaust system, carbon heat protector, smoked rear taillight, Marchesini front and rear wheels, Brembo brake system, 4-gallon fuel tank and multifunctional speedometer. The suspension is comprised of 48mm USD WP fully adjustable forks with TiAIN coated inner tubes and 160mm of suspension travel while the rear WP monoshock is fully adjustable with TiAIN coated piston rod and 180mm suspension travel.

Any reason the Aqualine SE tanks won't fit on the SMR?

The dude on the phone thought they would, but he did not sound convincing.

8 gallons of gas would change everything.

The 950 SE/SMR are near identical, body work wise anyway. The aqualine will work on either 950. Your 990SMR not so much. It may work but you would need a seat for sure, perhaps rear plastic too. I'd be more inclined to carry an extra 1gal bottle of fuel and a siphon tube. You're talking over $1000 to add range going with the tank plus seat plus misc bits.

After a couple of years with my 690r enduro I have become a fan of light weight. After I sold my RC51 I was looking for a big but light v-twin and the supermoto r fit the bill. The hypermotard is a little lighter but has a less powerful air cooled engine. I chose the r over the t because I did not need a touring bike and preferred the slightly more hooligan r. No regrets. The Supermoto R is a hoot! If it was going to be my commuter bike or for trips then it would be the t model.
