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.

"Ready to race" in its purest form, the KTM 450 SMR provides perfect technology for the racetrack, one that riders will come to enjoy for all of its awesome benefits.

For the 2012 model, the 450 SMR is equipped with the very finest components that money can buy, including a new chassis with high-quality WP suspension components and high-tech brakes and a renowned powerhouse of the 450 SX-F engine that has turned the 450 SMR into an invincible weapon in every Supermoto race.

We shouldn’t expect anything less, either considering the bike has been built with a huge amount of innovative technology, clearly setting the standard in production Supermotos. Headlining the bike’s list of impressive features is a 450cc DOHC engine that comes mated to a 5-speed transmission that has been specially designed for Supermoto and an APTC anti-hopping clutch. This provides everything you need as standard for landing on the very top of the podium.

The APTC anti-hopping clutch on the 450 SMR precisely prevents the rear wheel from chattering, therefore improving control when drifting into curves. 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.

The Duke . The name itself already speaks of royalty, and when it’s taken in the context of a bike that’s as versatile as the 200 Duke, the name certainly applies.

The 200 Duke is the personification of lightness rediscovered combined with maximum riding fun, powerful propulsion, and optimum user value, all of which was accomplished through KTM’s unmistakable thoroughbred motorcycle technology.

Comfort is essential for a bike of the 200 Duke’s built, and KTM paid careful attention to it by designing a two-piece seat that provides surprising long-distance comfort, perfect support, and first-class ergonomics for rider and pillion. At 810 mm, the seat height is low enough for a secure standing position, but also high enough for sports-oriented use and a genuine big-bike feeling.

The 200 Duke also has a featherweight chassis that comes with high-quality components and first-class brakes. The bike carries a high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension with the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R, which is a true statement of the bike’s overall comfort and versatility.

The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine’s overall center of gravity. This aids centralization of masses and improves the playful handling of the 200 Duke. Not only noise, but emission levels are also exemplary thanks to the regulated catalytic converter.

At the heart of the 200 Duke is another improvement for the 2012 model: a state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engine that generates 60% more displacement and correspondingly fully developed power to the tune of 25 horses. Add the new camshafts, bigger valves, a larger piston with a completely new crank drive, new airbox and a new exhaust layout, and it all results in a bike that offers punchy torque with irresistible smoothness.

When it comes to the Hypermotard 1100 EVO, Ducati has adhered to a tried-and-tested formula grounded on minimalism and functionality.

The Hypermotard’s unique and innovative design stands out head and shoulders above the competition, highlighted by a distinctive beak that blends into the stylish headlamp fairing, making it an instantly recognizable bike. Couple that with a carefully shaped tank that tapers into a skinny waistline and you have a bike that looks and feels like a proven winner.

When the bike was first shown in concept guise at the 2005 Milan Bike Show, it represented the creation of a new segment that bridged the gap between refined sportbikes and minimalist supermotards. Despite initial reservations on the look of the bike, Ducati signed off on the production of the Hypermotard, driven by the belief in the upright and in-control riding position of a dirtbike, but not the harsh characteristics of its single cylinder engine.

In the end, the Hypermotard has proven to be a popular choice among Ducati aficionados. From the sturdy look of the Marzocchi front forks to the Ducati signature single-sided swingarm and underseat exhausts, the Hypermotard’s design remains unique and pure Ducati.

The result is a bike that’s not only easy to handle, but also offers unbelievable agility, incredibly sure-footed handing, and a flexible engine that can tackle any road.
