The 990 SM T unites a sporty, high-precision chassis with a state-of-the-art V2 engine, a frame-anchored fairing, great comfort and a sensitively regulating ABS system. The DOHC twin offers a choice between full-on power for vigorous throttle twisting or refined power for making progress with ease. This arrangement has given rise to a unique combination of racer, tourer and city bike rolled into one. In short: a long-distance Supermoto that combines sports talent with endurance, comfort and suitability for everyday use.
2011 KTM 990 Supermoto T Features
Powerful, state-of-the-art V2
The 990 SM T'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.
Aside from optimum combustion chamber design, the major factors behind the outstanding performance of the 990 SM T'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 T's V2 engine with reduced reciprocating weight and hence a decidedly spontaneous responsiveness, underlining its extremely sporty engine characteristics.
The electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system on the 990 SM T, 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.
Frame and swingarm
The 990 SM T'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 contributes plenty of mechanical grip.
Thanks to multiple setting options, the upside-down telescopic fork and the directly connected shock absorber from WP Suspension allow optimum individual adjustment of the chassis to suit the respective operational use of the versatile 990 SM T.
More than adequate braking is ensured in the 990 SM T by Brembo® brakes with the very finest components. On the front wheel, two radially-mounted four-piston brake calipers, pressured by a radial master cylinder, bite hard into 305 mm (12.01 in) rotors.
Sporty but suitable for touring
Wind screen and large fuel tank
The frame-anchored fairing on the 990 SM T provides effective protection from the wind and weather and accommodates a clearly structured multifunction cockpit that supplies the rider with all essential information. The fuel tank with a capacity of 19 l (20 qt.) ensures a long useful working range.
The 990 SM T's perfectly padded twin-level seat ensures suitable long-distance comfort for both rider and passenger, while also providing freedom of movement and crystal-clear feedback for a sportier pace.
The selectable dual-circuit ABS system developed in cooperation with Bosch offers total protection against over-braking, while maintaining the full effect and perfect feedback of a genuine sports brake thanks excellent sensitivity. Weighing no more than 1 kg (2 lb.), the ABS system therefore allows extremely sporty braking.
Luggage mounting system
Thanks to an integrated luggage mounting system, it is possible to secure a top box and two panniers to the rear of the 990 SM T — compact and grouped closely to the center of gravity, but with enough storage space for everything you could possibly need on your travels.
The gathered sitting position behind the double-butted, perfectly angled, aluminum handlebar support relaxed touring equally as well as hitting the gas with commitment.
