About the 450 SMR
The championship-winning engine from KTM’s motocross and supercross machines has been adjusted and modified for optimum Supermoto use. The motor weighs just 27 kg but growls with torque and bites hard with 63 hp.
The power curve is explored and exploited by the Pankl Racing Systems 5-speed gearbox. That benefits from a sensor that permits specific engine maps for each gear.
A 44 mm Keihin throttle is key to the sensitive and confidence-inspiring way to summon most of the KTM 450 SMR powerplant.
Unrivalled handling comes through a particular chromium molybdenum steel frame. Fabricated by robotic laser-welding for utmost precision and quality and the meld of perfect torsion and flex characteristics.
The 16 mm offset geometry brings a natural. And attackable sensation through the CNC-machined triple clamps with a three-way amendable handlebar.
Supermoto is about living on the limits of adhesion. KTM has equipped the bike with a long list of premium quality parts to make the most of this thrilling vibe.
To that end, WP Suspension XACT technology helps the 2022 KTM 450 SMR both stick. And slide as the forces of physics drive through the Supermoto 16.5″ /17″ ALPINA light.Spoked tubeless wheels and Bridgestone slick tires.
Ultimate braking performance is achieved with premium Brembo 4-piston radial calliper. And master cylinder set-up with 310 mm and 220 mm front and rear discs.
For 2022, the KTM 450 SMR introduces a frame finishing coated in racing orange. To reinforce further the proximity to the race-winning machines of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing stars.
The updated frame aligns perfectly with the new blue seat cover. And the graphics’ fresh colours to visually emphasise the close link to KTM’s Factory machinery.
