First pics: 2009 KTM Supermoto 990 R


The 2009 KTM Supermoto 990 R. You know it's going to be rocking...

For dedicated supermotard fans, KTM are working on their new Supermoto 990 R, which will go on sale by March 2009. An evolution of the Supermoto 950, the Supermoto 990 R gets the Super Duke R’s 999cc LC8 engine, Brembo brakes with monoblock radial-mount calipers, fully adjustable suspension front and rear, and a bigger fuel tank.

KTM are also working on the 1190 RC8 R, a racing-spec version of the base RC8, as well as the Venom, a naked version of the RC8. All three bikes will be shown at the upcoming EICMA show in Milan.
