In building the KTM 690 SMC R , KTM adhered to one motto: "what isn’t there doesn’t weigh anything either."

It sounds a lot simpler than it looks, but KTM did a fantastic job following this saying with the 690 SMC R while fitting it with a new 690cc LC4 single-cylinder engine, an improved chassis, and world-class Supermoto ergonomics. Really, everything you’d want in an enduro bike is part of the entire 690 SMC R package.

The new 690 SMC R is an unrivaled Supermoto for the most demanding requirements, which leaves all others in its wake. It is suitable for racing or everyday use, features a potent design, and is state-of-the-art.

Talking about its ergonomics, the 690 SMC R comes with a self-supporting rear fender/fuel tank unit that’s made from robust plastic bears with a new, equally comfortable and low seat. The redesigned tank fairings and the ideally angled, wide aluminum handlebars form a perfect arrangement, allowing for simpler controlling and navigation on any kind of road surface.

Then there’s the bike’s state-of-the-art, water-cooled LC4 single-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 66 horsepower, combining powerful acceleration from the lowest rpms with an outstanding free-revving nature and refined engine running. The bike’s electronic engine management system features fuel injection that offers the rider the choice between three different mappings for influencing the engine characteristics. Likewise, the "electronic power throttle" ensures that the throttle commands from the rider are translated electronically into the optimum throttle valve opening at all times, giving rise to tremendously progressive power development that very few bikes in its segment can compete with.

This design also significantly reduces the hand strength required to operate the hydraulic clutch. The Magura hydraulic system is completely maintenance-free and guarantees precise application with the minimum of effort.

Lastly, you’re going to get a real good treat with the KTM 450 Supermoto R and the fact that it has been integrated with an extremely lightweight titanium exhaust header and the innovative "Header Pipe Resonator System“ (HPRS), in conjunction with the new silencer, guaranteeing even greater performance at further reduced noise levels.
