KTM 450 SMR track bike unleashed

Supermoto bikes are probably the wildest bikes you can ride on the tarmac. It basically combines some of the characteristics of an off-road bike with that of a street bike. For those who love to ride Supermoto bikes, KTM has unleashed the 2024 model year 450 SMR track bike, and you can have one of these via special order at KTM PH.

450 SMR

KTM claims that the 450 SMR is “the bar of reference for Supermoto.” Austria’s own Lukas Höllbacher took his KTM 450 SMR to the 2022 AMA Supermoto title and fought until the last moments for the FIM World Championship. Höllbacher’s track feats and feedback rolled into the serial production version of KTM’s latest and best definition of the ultimate Supermoto racer. In 2023 he will again be on the attack with the 2024 KTM 450 SMR and riders can now get their hands on the same model.

Powering the 450 SMR is a potent 450 cc SOHC engine that fires out 63 Ps of power and now with longer service intervals. This engine only weighs 27 kilos. A 44mm Keihin throttle body brings in the fun and gauges the right response while the SUTER slipper clutch adds another important way to modulate lap-time speed.

Ultimate handling thanks to the centralization of the motor and chassis within the hydro-formed, laser-cut, and robot-welded frame. The compact construction has just the right amount of longitudinal rigidity and flex to provide superb feedback, energy absorption and straight-line stability. The reinforced aluminum subframe weighs in at only 1.8 kilos and was generated from computational dynamic studies: sensitivity, robustness and reliability were the parameters. The hollow, die-cast aluminum swingarm is another remarkable contributor to the 2024 KTM 450 SMR’s experience along with a NEKEN aluminum handlebar and CNC machined triple clamps (rubber damped for less vibration) to put every single vital meter of the racetrack right into the rider’s hands.

Pivot on a dime with dependable suspension. 48 mm WP XACT split front fork have AER technology for progressive and consistent damping, especially in the last 40 mm of travel. Count on quick-access click adjusters for compression and rebound. The WP XACT shock is small, light, and fixed with the frame geometry for better ground clearance of the linkage system. The XACT unit is one of the most advanced pieces of hardware to emerge from the WP Suspension factory lines. Like the fork, the shock’s compression and rebound can be configured without the need for tools.

According to our insider friend at KTM, these bikes are imported from Austria and the exchange rate fluctuation of the peso and euro is the main reason why they do not order these bikes in bulk, like other KTM models. Then there’s the demand.
