In the hearts of many fans he left a beautiful void. Let’s talk about the KTM 990 SMT. A real one motardona capable of yielding to the wishes of the traveler. Decent air protection, bag attachments and comfortable saddle. Without ever giving up the pleasure and nastiness of the 75 ° V-twin LC8 engine.
Sure today there is another sportswoman in a grand touring key in Mattighofen. And the 1290 SuperDuke GT. But we are in another market segment, the one where eagles fly high on the wings of 170 and pass horses.
The the future, however, could smile to lovers of the SMT genre. The British magazine MCN has caught on the road what looks like an 890 SMT. Powered by the parallel twin that equips the 890 Adventure (with 105 hp), obviously forgoes the 21 “front wheel for a 17” road rim. A choice not at all risky, if we think about commercial success of the Yamaha Tracer 9 and BMW F900XR crossovers.

Frame and suspensions, but also the fairing (which could be temporary to mislead the photofraphs) are taken from the Adventure, while the large brakes Brembo are identical to those mounted on the road Duke.
To make people think to an SMT rather than an 890 Duke GT are also the suspensions with a greater excursion than the naked bike.
Sure, ours are pure inferences, because the paparazzi motorcycle in Austria is not necessarily going to hit the market soon. But the abbreviation SMT would suit us just fine.
