KTM 950 SMR

Not new news but I really like what they did with the 950 SMR. Its mostly cosmetic changes but looks totally sweet! If I was buying a new hypermoto it would be either the 950smr or the Ducati. Here's a few pics taken by Montero F. at a European press introduction last month (Click for full-size originals):

156018444 L


156019725 L



156019550 L

I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one... they've been building fantastic enduro style bikes and 125/250cc racers for years. They have alot of know how and skill in regards to bike design.

Did you see the SuperDuke R? Thats what I would get. Won't be out until next year though I think.

The R gets radial brakes, 4 litres more fuel capacity, redesigned front, new instruments, mirrors, led rear lights, colors and graphics as well as full Euro 3 compliance. The 990 R also gets several carbon fibre parts, orange frame, CNC machined headstock, steering damper, single seat unit (only available as a single seater) and more horsepower.

These pictures are from the site I linked above. Same photographer:

156192330 L

156192499 L
