For the starters, it is built on a thin-walled, 7.3 kg lightweight tubular space frame, made from high-strength chrome-molybdenum steel, which assures perfect stability and optimal stiffness distribution. The frame’s center piece is a 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, 75° V arrangement, liquid-cooled engine. The unit has a 1,195 cc displacement and cranks out an impressive 132 kW (177 hp) of power.

When it comes to motorcycles, KTM was always among the most innovative manufacturers in its segment. Now, the company proves once more its daring character and offers the first 125 cc motorcycle fitted with ABS.

At the heart of the bike lies a 1-cylinder 4-stroke, water-cooled engine with a displacement of 125 cc. The liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engine features twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection. Its maximum output is rated at 11 kW (15 hp) and power is sent to the rear wheel via a six speed, claw shifted transmission. Talking about wheels, the motorcycle sits on a pair of lightweight 17 in cast light alloy wheels wrapped in 110 mm front and 150 mm rear tires.

The motorcycle’s backbone is a lightweight tubular space frame which keeps the weight grouped close to the centre of gravity to maximize handling.

The KTM 990 SM R is a stunning motorcycle which rewards you with a thrilling ride every time you jump on its saddle. At the heart of the bike lies a water-cooled V-engine with 85 kW (114 hp) on tap. The engine is among the lightest units in its class and cranks out an impressive amount of torque. A modern electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system to improve the behavior under partial load.

But power without control is useless, thereby the KTM 990 is also able to deal great with twisty roads thanks to its multi-adjustable high-spec WP suspension. The sporty mix also contains a set of front twin-disc brakes with radially mounted four-piston brake calipers and rear single-disc brakes with two-piston brake calipers. For increased performances the disc brakes are combined with an ABS (antilock brake system).
