Singularly Powerful: 2007 KTM 690SM

The 2007 KTM 690SM. Serious supermoto riders had better get used to the way it looks...

KTM have shown their 640-replacement, the new 690SM. This new machine is fitted with KTM’s 654cc fuel-injected single, which makes 65 horsepower – one of the most powerful single-cylinder engines ever fitted to a production motorcycle anywhere! The bike is, supposedly, capable of top speeds of up to 200km/h and features top-spec suspension and braking components.

While KTM’s much-awaited RC8 superbike will only be shown next year (and may be available as a 2008 model…), the company is expected to have something up its sleeve for the upcoming EICMA show in Italy this year. Stay tuned!

The KTM 690SM should be one hell of a performer!
