The KTM 690 SMC R raises the bar for street hooligans. The revised chassis and styling are boosted by the latest 690 LC4 motor and an updated electronics package, so whether you express your tarmac-sliding talent on mountain roads or on the track, you’ll be drifting into the future with a maxed-out grin and your veins coursing with adrenaline.
Handling is enhanced by the latest fully-adjustable WP APEX suspension, so all you have to worry about is focusing on the road ahead and twisting the throttle to the stoppers.
The latest 690 LC4 engine is all about smooth, powerful performance with the right mix of character to propel you in and out of corners at warp speed. Every aspect of the LC4 engine design is geared towards providing a more heart pounding riding experience.
Gaining full control over your supermoto while maximizing its performance has never been easier with the updated electronics package that includes cornering ABS, and MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) for optimal street-riding performance. Benefit from the full range of assistance modes with user-friendly adjustability. Quickshifter + allows effortless electronically assisted clutch-free gear shifts, whether changing up or down.
There are two ride modes: ‘Street’ mode gives a sporty throttle response where cornering-sensitive MTC limits wheel slip and keeps wheelies to a minimum for optimal street riding performance, while ‘Sport’ mode provides more aggressive throttle response with reduced traction control (without cornering sensitivity) to allow drifts and full control of the slide, aimed at track or very sporty street usage. The modes can be easily switched over from the handlebar, making adjustment on the fly possible.
