The KTM 450 SMR offers first class performances and is packed with many modern technologies which help it remain among the top dogs in its segment. Moreover, the motorcycle has received a series of upgrades for 2012, hence it just became better.
At the heart of the motorcycle lies a new single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition engine. The unit is liquid-cooled and has a 449.3 cc displacement. The engine is brought to life with a compact electric starter and is paired with a 5-speed transmission.
The 2012 KTM 459 SMR rides on new, front 48mm upside-down forks from WP, featuring closed-cartridge technology. On the other hand, the rear wheel is kept in check by a WP monoshock which has been specially tuned for Supermoto racing. Needless to say, that a wide setup range for rebound and compression damping allows individual adjustment of the chassis for the most diverse tracks.
