The 2009 KTM 990 SMT. A supermotard that's also a sport-tourer. Whatever next?!

KTM have launched an all-new bike at the EICMA – the 990 SMT – a supermoto-style bike that’s also a long-distance sport-tourer. And while that does sound a bit outlandish at first, the bike itself looks pretty convincing…

Based on the 990 SM, the 2009 990 SMT, which weighs 196kg dry, features mildly reworked ergonomics, better wind protection, and hooks etc. where you can fit panniers and/or soft luggage.

The bike’s 999cc v-twin remains unchanged, and the 115bhp and 97Nm of torque it makes should be quite handy with this type of bike. Suspension components are from WP and the 990 SMT has a 19-litre fuel tank, which should be useful for long-distance sport-touring.
