That's very nice. Wonder if it's coming to the USA? I was thinking there really wasn't anything that tripped my trigger for 2009, but this KTM, the new Ducati Streetfighter and the Aprilia RSV4 are pretty interesting. Not that I could justify buying any of those at full retail, but eventually leftovers or lightly used will hit the market.

My 950 SM-R will keep me happy for at least another season or two...

Tank size?

Cool.

Though I wonder, when does it stop being a supermoto and start being a sport standard?

When you add the second cylinder it stops being a supermoto.

Yes!!!  KTM built my bike!  I've been hoping they would put that motor in a more touring-oriented bike than than the SD or SM.

If it has ABS it would be killer.  I've head from another board (multistrada.net) that it won't be coming to the US yet.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Specs - http://www.ktm.com/990-Supermoto-T.100770.0.html

The bike is shown on some of the UK KTM site, but unfortunately not the US site.

It does seem like just the ticket for a sharp-edged tourer.
Leave it to KTM to come up with something like this. Now they just need to deliver and bring it to the US.

Sweet!  I've been thinking a Uly w/ the new Rotax mill may be the future replacement to the Super Duke in a few years.  But, it just got bumped down on the list.  Please KTM, bring this to the U.S.!!!!

Cool idea, Triumph did it first, or maybe Ducati.  Anyways those bags are too small for any touring.  Should call it a SuperMoto-Commuter.  Maybe some aftermarket pipes and hard bags can make it a Tourer.

Nice.  The bummer (maybe) seems to be the small range and small, non waterproof bags.  Why non waterproof?  
Interesting to see how this will compete against the upcoming 1098 based Ducati Multistrada.

Considering that I use my Tuono (3.5 gallon tank, small soft bags) in this exact type of role, I think the KTM looks like a terrific sport-touring mount!

Tank range: 19L = 5 gallons which seems perfectly acceptable to me
Small bags: not everyone needs to carry metric tons of stuff.
KTM performance and suspension: heck yeah!

Weighing it down with a huge tank and huge hard bags would be completely against what this bike is all about!!! Thank you, KTM, for expanding the range of choices in factory sport-touring models!

Optional small hard / waterproof / lockable sidebags would be nice.  I'm going to wait and see how the new Multi turns out.  But, this bike is in the running.

Just joined your site people from over here in Guernsey, Channel Islands, check us out on Google Earth for those that don't know where it is. This weeks MCN has both their first ride report from the launch in portugal and, according to them, an accurate likeness on page 2 of the replacement Multistrada.
Make your own minds up but, for me the new MS is not what I expected, its not for me but the SMT is.

Welcome to STN!  I hate hearing that the new Multi isn't what you expected.  My curiosity is very high now.  I need to pick up the current issue of MCN.

Maybe he expected it to be a supercharged unicycle?
