This is not the first KTM SMT model; there was a 990 version back in the early 2010s, but at the same time, this does not really feel like a revival.
Perhaps due to the previously existing 'Supermoto Touring''s' rather constrained appeal.
The motorcycle's motor is a little bit smaller than it was before.
The LC8c 889cc parallel-twin engine used in the KTM 890 Duke and KTM 890 Adventure is also used in the 2023 KTM 890 SMT.
Lean-sensitive traction control and an ABS system that combines cornering ABS and supermoto ABS are two further electronic aids that are to improve the bike's "supermoto" capabilities.
Additionally, there are four riding modes: Rain, Street, Sport, and an optional Track setting that allows for 10-level traction control adjustment.
Heated grips and the Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) software package are further optional features.
