The KTM Brand

“READY TO RACE” – for KTM, these three words are far more than a simple slogan. They stand for the entire company philosophy of developing vehicles that can without any modifications comprehensively assert themselves in any race. Direct from the dealer onto the track and into the battle for victory.

Designers, engineers and riders are bound by a clear common denominator: an unconditional passion for motorcycles. The whole KTM family is a living example of this worldwide. Countless offroad world and European championship titles plus brilliant victories in the world’s toughest races (International Six Days Enduro, Dakar Rally, Erzbergrodeo, and many more) all speak for themselves. And KTM Supermotos, Naked Bikes, Superbikes and the X-Bow all demonstrate what an “orange” lead means on asphalt.

Purity

Reduction to the bare essentials optimises the performance of a motorcycle – in racing and everyday riding alike. And these “essentials” must be composed of top-quality, tried and tested parts. This is how a KTM is created! Performance

Performance

The same distinctly transparent riding feeling that characterises KTM racing machines is also provided by a KTM motorcycle in everyday use. It assists the rider with powerful performance and clear feedback. Perhaps it’s a direct consequence of this race-oriented design that motorcycles from Mattighofen provide their owners with one thing above all else: an unbelievable amount of riding fun.

Adventure

Adventures on the road and adventures beyond the asphalt – that’s what KTM bikes are made for. And so that individual limits are defined by the rider and not by the motorcycle, KTM makes exclusive use of high-quality, state-of-the-art technology.

Extreme

Further development is traditionally undertaken in Mattighofen at the leading edge, since a KTM should be a match for the extremest of situations both on and beyond the asphalt. The strikingly brilliant orange is a uniquely distinctive feature of the company whose heart belongs as much as ever to motorsport.

“READY TO RACE” will continue to be the philosophy of KTM in the future too – in the development and production as well as the use of its vehicles.

2013 KTM 1190 RC8R

 

KTM 1190 RC8 R

 

KTM 1190 RC8 R: Pure Superbike

The ultimate power tool from KTM. KTM designers pulled out all the stops in the art of engine building when it came to the 1190 RC8 R 2013. The rider has one of the most powerful V2 engines of our times and one of the best chassis in the world at his or her disposal – totally street-legal. With the precision to cut out the others when entering the corner. With the power and traction to pull away from them exiting the corner. With the feedback and ergonomics to enjoy the 1190 RC8 R 2013 to the full.

 

INJECTION / ENGINE MANAGEMENT
The electronic Keihin engine management system with twin throttle valves regulates the modern electronic fuel injection system on the RC8 R, focussing on maximum power with predictable power development and spontaneous responsiveness with precisely controllable throttle response.SWINGARM
The intricately made light alloy swingarm makes a significant contribution to the outstanding traction of the RC8 R. The position of the swingarm can be adjusted by means of an eccentric on the lever linkage. In this way, compression can be minimised and squatting prevented when accelerating out of corners.
LINKAGE
The progressiveness of the linkage provides the shock absorber with refined responsiveness and still with sufficient reserves at peak loads. The position of the swingarm can be adjusted to the rider’s riding style and weight on the easily accessible eccentric adjuster on the linkage, and squatting on acceleration prevented.SHOCK ABSORBER
The sophisticated internal mechanism of the WP shock absorber on the RC8 R completely isolates the rebound damping from the compression stage, so that they can each be adjusted independently of one another. The compression damping can also be set for high speed and low speed. The suspension set-up range extends comfortably to racing conditions.TELESCOPIC FORK
The high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension can be adjusted separately for preload as well as for compression and rebound damping of the suspension. Their adjustment ranges extend from country road comfort to tough racing conditions. In addition, a WP steering damper keeps the forks on track, even under extreme conditions.

SETTING OPTIONS
The 2013 KTM RC8 R not only offers extraordinarily relaxed ergonomics for all its supreme sportiness, but also more ergonomic setting options than any other series production superbike. Footrests: two heights, each with two positional variants. Foot levers: variable lever operating angle and lever length. Seat: two heights. Hand levers: variable. Handlebar: two heights and two angles.

KTM 1190 RC8 R: For Racetrack Use Only

A strictly limited number of bikes for those who want to use their 1190 RC8 R exclusively on the racetrack. Factory-homologated for Superstock and built to be “ready to race” by the KTM Racing Division, with all the goodies from the KTM PowerParts range that make the potential for race success even greater. And equipped, of course, with everything that makes the KTM superbike so successful — crowned with the IDM manufacturer’s title 2010. A power pack like no other.

2013 KTM 990 Super MotoT

KTM 990 Supermoto T

 

KTM 990 Supermoto T: The Long Distance Supermoto

The 2013 KTM 990 SM T unites a sporty, high-precision chassis with a state-of-the-art V2 engine, a frame-anchored fairing, great comfort and a sensitively regulating ABS system. The DOHC twin offers a choice between full-on power for vigorous throttle-twisting or refined power for making progress with ease. This arrangement has given rise to a unique combination of tourer, racer and city bike. In short: a long-distance Supermoto that combines sports talent with endurance, comfort and suitability for everyday use.

ENGINE
The 990 SM T’s water-cooled V-engine with 85 kW (114 hp) sets the benchmark for free-revving twins. Its intelligent design principle with multi-function balancer shaft makes it one of the lightest and most compact V2s in its class. The engine impresses with explosive, spontaneous throttle response.

CYLINDER HEAD
Alongside the optimum combustion chamber design, the major factors behind the outstanding performance of the KTM 990 SM T’s V-twin with 75° cylinder angle are the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder heads, each with flow-optimised ducts and two overhead camshafts.

CRANK DRIVE / PISTONS
Particularly lightweight pistons and connecting rods bestow the 2013 990 SM T’s V2 engine with reduced reciprocating weight and hence with decidedly spontaneous responsiveness, underlining its extremely sporty engine characteristics.

ENGINE MANAGEMENT
The electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system on the 990 SM T, focussing on optimum behaviour under partial load and spontaneous responsiveness. In this way, KTM engineers were able to harmonise raw power with optimum rideability
