Ignore your instincts. This bike offers cross-genre kicks in an inventive, distinctive package of outstanding difference.
It combines sportsbike performance and handling with the commanding view of a giant trailie, the aggressive posture of a supermoto and the practicality of an all-rounder. Think of it as everything Ducati’s Multistrada pledged, but didn’t deliver.
With its self confident, bull-like appearance, the KTM 950 Supermoto manages to put on a show - even when on its stand. Set it in motion, and you’re practically unbeatable.
What’s the magic formula that makes our bikes so much fun? It’s no secret. Take the 950 Supermoto. No other manufacturer comes even close to being as consequent as KTM. The extremely compact LC8 engine weighs only 58 kg, making it the lightest Twin in the 1,000 cc class. The stable chromium-molybdenum frame, weighing only 11 kg, is a real lightweight. The short, 1,510 mm wheelbase together with the radical 64.6° steering head angle guarantees an extremely sporty riding experience. The finely tuned WP chassis is as convincing on country roads as it is on the motorway.
In a word: The KTM 950 Supermoto feels as light as a single cylinder and goes like the devil.
