Super Moto

The KTM 450 SMR is a pure expression of the READY TO RACE motto coming straight from the dealer floor with a premium setting of performance that will cause throttle hands to tremble. For 2022, it is heavily based on the championship winning KTM 450 SX-F that is the industry benchmark. The KTM 450 SMR features an extremely compact, single overhead camshaft engine that produces its power in the most effective way possible. The bike is fitted with premium components all-over, making it the most complete and most competitive model in the Supermoto racing segment. In brief, the KTM 450 SMR is the ultimate Supermoto racer!

ENGINE & EXHAUST

 

When maximum power is needed, there is no alternative to the stunning engine of the KTM 450 SMR. It's performance has been demonstrated in the world's toughest competitions such as the AMA 450 Supercross World Championship and the MXGP World Championship.

The SOHC power plant is the perfect example of the advanced engineering techniques offering a peak power at an overall weight of just 27.3 kg. Mass-centralisation is key in the engine design, enabling chassis engineers to position the engine closer to the centre of gravity for great handling and manoeuvrability.

 

When it comes to power delivery and performance, the exhaust on the KTM 450 SMR plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. It features a model specific header pipe with an advanced resonator called FDH (Flow Design Header), which is a small chamber around the pipe. The design allows the exhaust to be disassembled without removing the shock absorber and also provides better access to the shock. The aluminum sleeve, end cap and internal design of the silencer allows for slimmer ergonomics, making the bike feel narrower, without compromise to regulatory noise limits.

 

 

 

CHASIS

The KTM 450 SMR benefits from a lightweight high-tech frame made of chromium molybdenum steel sections that include hydro-formed elements welded together by state-of-the-art robots. For 2022, the KTM 450 SMR introduces a frame finishing coated in racing orange to further reinforce the proximity to the championship winning machines of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing stars. The frame design guarantees a precisely defined stiffness in conjunction with an optimal geometry with the rider enjoying first-class feedback and ultra-responsive handling. The subframe is made from extremely lightweight and highly stable aluminum sections that provide optimum riding feeling.

 

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

The KTM 450 SMR is equipped with high-strength aluminum tapered handlebar, made by NEKEN. The handlebar is fixed in rubber damped mountings, which allow for two different positions. The handlebars come standard with an ODI vulcanized grip on the right side and a comfortable ODI lock-on grip, which does not require any wire or glue, on the left.

 

Sophisticated ´no-dirt´ footpegs prevent clogging of the footpeg pivot. Looking for a higher riding position? Then just mount the footpegs of the 2019 EXC models, which are 6mm higher than that of the SMR version.

 

The KTM 450 SMR features a perfectly ergonomically designed seat and excellent seat contour and comfort for the rider. Incorporating additional silicon strips on the seat area, it gives the rider more grip and a better feel.

 

BODYWORK & GRAPHICS

For 2022 the combination of the new orange coated frame, the new blue seat cover and the fresh colors in the graphics, all these emphasize visually the close connection to KTM’s Factory machinery.

 

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

TRACTION CONTROL is a highly beneficial feature on a Supermoto, it guarantees more efficient traction and better control of the bike, especially when making the transition from asphalt to dirt. It can be activated or deactivated by the handlebar map switch during riding.

 

By pushing both buttons on the map switch, the rider can activate LAUNCH CONTROL, which ensures a composed launch off the startline. It reduces the maximum engine speed for the very first moment of the start to give better control. The EFI control lamp mounted on the upper triple clamps flashes when the function is active.

 

With one touch of a button, the map switch gives the rider the chance to select between a standard or more aggressive map setting . This is particularly useful for changing track or weather conditions or for a rider that is looking for more control as he begins to fatigue.

 

The KTM 450 SMR features a, super lightweight 2 Ah Lithium Ion starter battery, ensuring quick and effective starting of the engine. The voltage regulator and condenser, as well as all the electrical components are packaged in a common area below the seat, making the entire system compact and reliable.
