2012 KTM SMC-R available now

2012 KTM SMC-R available now

Was down at the local KTM shop at lunch getting a new chain for my 150sx and they have in a new 2012 KTM 690 SMC-R fresh off the production line, kitted out with an extra Akrapovic pipe. My god it was nice to sit on. Not sure how long I will be able to hold off on buying one of these. Might depend on how good the new duke is…

      haha, yes, I do. If I had more money I wouldn’t hesitate a second, but in order to get this I wOuld need to sell the 150SX and not quite ready for that yet… Especially as I have been tuning it during the winter and it looks seriously mint now… Cant wait to ride it.. Plus, seems like I will have a new 690 duke for the summer on loan from KTM. They asked me to write a list of what powerparts I wanted on it yesterday. Check out the list, LOL:

      Not 100% sure when or with what it will arrive and how long i have it for, but pretty excited anyway. Will try and test the SMC-r back to back with it at some point to make a comparison. The SMC-r doesnt need anything to make it run and look good i reckon..

        OMG good score! I’m stumbling around here in disbelief! – look forward to seeing some pics of it when you get it.

        Sun’s beaming here, side of the tyre might see some action on the way home :)

    Nice list you have there man! I might have to convince one of the vehilce developers to let me out on an SMC-R to come and play with duke you’ll be gettin. Then we can both see how they go next to one another… Who are we going to get to take all the photos and vid material??? hehehe… I hope that works out! ;-)
