Staff bikes: KTM 990 SMT ABS - Retuned to perfection

Trevor Franklin, 05 October 2011 16:49

Although the KTM 990 SM-T looks the same black and white bike I'd left at BSD Performance for a dyno run and fuelling check, the bike I got back now runs like a completely different machine. The KTM's low-rpm throttle snatch around town is now nothing more than a memory. Throttle response in first and second gearis smoother with the ...

Video: Long term KTM 990 SMT ABS

MCN, 29 September 2011 16:41

Trevor Franklin talks through the finer details of his KTM 990 SMT ABS long term test bike, his plans for the bike and explains why it's helping him to 'still feel like a teenager'. We suspect it could have something to do with the "V-twin engine that is so punchy it defies belief; up on the back wheel, fast out of ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - Loading up the Duke

Dan Aspel, 28 September 2011 12:17

Fitting luggage on a KTM 125 Duke might seem as pointless as putting race slicks on a Suzuki Burgman, but if you’re a teenager who has the touring bug, you need to know your options. Too low powered and dinky to cope with hard panniers or a topbox, the Duke is limited to soft bags and bungee straps. With this ...

Editor’s picks – KTM 690 Duke

MCN, 31 August 2011 17:22

With the scoop first ride of the 2012 KTM 690 Duke gracing the pages of this week’s issue of MCN, we take a look at the previous model (2008-2011) – one of the most involving rides you’ll find, with a 65bhp single-cylinder motor and the handling characteristics of a supermoto.

Andy Downes, 31 August 2011 09:29

The world's most powerful single-cylinder bike will get more refined and yet more powerful next year, an MCN world first ride has revealed. MCN rode a prototype version of the 2012 KTM 690 Duke months before it will be seen in finished form, when the Austrian company hopes it will encourage younger riders to move from smaller capacity machines like ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - Duke to the Alps

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 15:22

This July I rode from Oundle (Cambridgeshire), to Interlaken (Switzerland) and back on my 125 Duke. The 2,000 mile, six-day route took me across country lanes, motorways, city streets, alpine passes and grassy fields, which the tiny KTM managed with aplomb. This – of course – is nothing new. Plenty of low-capacity bikes head off on high mileage odysseys every ...

KTM RC8 now cheaper than TDM900

Ryan Spencer, 19 August 2011 11:48

Fancy picking up a new KTM RC8 superbike for less than the price of a Yamaha TDM900 or Honda Crossrunner? If so, you'd better hurry - to clear out unsold RC8s, dealers have discounted the price to just £8295 and there are only handfuls of bikes left. Until discontinued in 2009, KTM's 1148cc 150bhp RC8 superbike was £10,995 and featured ...
