2011 KTM 990

This video shows the 2011 KTM 990 SM T in action, a bike that fortunately hits American shores for 2011.

Like many other manufacturers are doing, KTM took their Supermoto machine and created a capable distance touring out of it.

Driving this machine is a 990cc, 115 hp V-twin, which is combined with a lightweight chassis for ultimate agility. The bike also features a dual-channel ABS system developed by Bosch, which can be turned on or off when needed.

The bike also features 7.7-inches of ground clearance and a relatively light weight of (claimed) 437 pounds dry. This, combined with WP Suspension components and a Trellis frame, creates a motorcycle that combines sportiness and durability with comfort and diversity.
