KTM unveil new-spec 990 Supermoto R

I found this on the interweb this evening..

Quote:
FROM SPRING 2009, KTM will be adding their new 990 Supermoto R to their existing line up of Austrian-made machines.
Based on the KTM 990 Supermoto launched in 2008, the 2009 version of the Supermoto R has the well-known strong acceleration and rev friendly 999cc LC8 motor, with the addition of new Brembo Monoblock brakes, light metal cast wheels and even more sporty ergonomics. The black coated swingarm, foot pegs and orange-coloured lacquer on the powder coated tubular steel frame all combine to ensure the KTM 990 Supermoto is a real eye-catcher. The KTM 990 Supermoto R will be officially presented to the public for the first time at the innovations trade fair EICMA in Milan. Start of production is planned for February 2009.

Re: KTM unveil new-spec 990 Supermoto R

Hi Loopy - That's my dream bike. KTM make a bunch of cool machines, but they are alittle overpriced for me. It seems all the cool bikes stay in Europe, maybe I can get one imported. When you buy a KTM it is already tricked out with nice suspension, brakes and light weight. Maybe that's why the high price. This is the one I want. Take it easy!
