2011 KTM 990 Supermoto R

A state-of-the-art V2 engine with electronic injection and impressive punch, a perfectly balanced chassis, a whole bunch of high-quality components – the 990 SM R is the most radical twin-cylinder Supermoto on the market. All the more astounding that it is just as much fun in the urban jungle as it is ticking off passes and out on the racetrack. One of the most dynamic, yet at the same time versatile machines, not only in the Supermoto segment.

 

2011 KTM 990 Supermoto R Features

Finest components

Carbon heat-protection shields

Finest ingredients — for the eyes too: lightweight and hard-wearing carbon heat-protection shields, radial Brembo® monoblock brake calipers, prestigious shock components from WP Suspension.

 

Perfect Supermoto ergonomics

Ergonomics

The 990 SM R’s fuel tank in conjunction with the elongated seat provides the rider with excellent contact points and maximum freedom of movement under hard acceleration. The double-butted, ideally angled aluminum handlebars aid perfect vehicle control.

 

Superior chassis

Frame and swingarm

The 990 SM R’s tubular space frame made from thin-walled chrome-molybdenum steel tubing with a bolted-on, light alloy subframe only weighs 9.5 kg (20.9 lb.), yet it impresses with exemplary torsional stiffness. The 575 mm (22.64 in) swingarm with conical profiles provides excellent grip.

Suspension Elements

Thanks to multiple setting options, the upside-down telescopic fork with TiAIN-coated sliding surfaces and the directly connected shock absorber from WP Suspension with a TiAIN-coated piston rod allow optimum individual adjustment of the chassis to suit load, riding style and course.

Radial brake

More than adequate braking performance are ensured in the 990 SM R by Brembo® brakes with the very finest components. On the front wheel, two radially-mounted monoblock four-piston brake calipers, pressured by a radial master cylinder, bite hard into floating 305 mm (12.01 in) rotors.

Forged rims

The forged Marchesini light alloy wheels on the 990 SM R are expensive, extremely lightweight and make the bike measurably faster due to negligible unsprung masses and low gyroscopic forces. Super-sporty: the Pirelli tires

 

Powerful, state-of-the-art V2

Engine

The 990 SM R’s water-cooled V-engine with 85 kW (114 hp) sets the benchmark for free-revving twins. Its intelligent design principle with multifunction balancer shaft makes it one of the lightest and most compact V2s in its class. The engine impresses with explosiveness and spontaneous throttle response.

Cylinder Head

Aside from optimum combustion chamber design, the major factors behind the outstanding performance of the 990 SM R’s V-twin with 75° cylinder angle are the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder heads, each with flow-optimized ports and two overhead camshafts.

Crank drive / Pistons

Particularly lightweight pistons and connecting rods bestow the 990 SM R’s V2 engine with reduced reciprocated weight and hence with decidedly spontaneous responsiveness, underlining its extremely sporty engine characteristics.

Engine Management

The electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system on the 990 SM R, focusing on smooth throttle response under partial load or spontaneous responsiveness when needed. In this way, KTM engineers were able to harmonize raw power with optimum ridability.
