I'd imagine the new 1290 Super Duke is going to be the replacement for not only the outgoing 990 SD but also the SMT. The new Super Duke has options for side bags. It also has a slightly more upright riding position than the old SD. It's probably going to be capable of just enough of the "touring" thing to make them feel it's unnecessary to offer an upgraded SMT model.

I think he did a good job, he forgot the 20K price tag though

Love it. Make the back seat big enough for 600 mile days for the passenger and add some luggage and a bigger screen and we're good to go.

Yeah, I think between all the revisions to the Adventure model and the tweaks to the duke we won't see a large amount of street models from KTM. Not here in the states anyways.

I just watched Zoolander.

Isn't the new 1290 a bit much as a touring rig?

Why take a scalpel and add a big clumsy handle and a heavy blade?

I've wondered about this. I hope KTM actually does this or something similar.

I suspect the new SMT will be an 1190.

Why?

People are buying the 700cc-950cc class for ride-ability and a modicum of affordable running costs.

Not everything needs to be 1200cc+; in fact they tend to sell poorly in terms of units.

Like the Multistrada?

If it's done right, more cc's is just more fun. I'm sure the SMT will rock and it will sell.

Sorry, I should have been clearer; 1200cc naked bikes tend to sell in relatively small numbers.

And KTM already have the 1190 ADV to compete head-to-head with the Multi.

I would think the SMT will get dropped and become a cult classic like the 950/990 ADV.

Depends on how easy it is to slot the 1190 (most likely) or 1290 engine and ECU into the SMT chassis. While I agree that the 1190 Adv is and will be compared to the Multi, some people will prefer a bike with 17/17 wheels as a pure road "tourable" bike. For those folks, an 1190 SMT would slot nicely between the Adv and SD as a traveling road bike; just as the 990SMT slots between the 990SD and 990 Adv..

a 17/17 1190 SMT would be a more natural competitor to the Multi, since the Multi doesn't have much off pavement cred (though probably more accurate to say the owners don't ).
