I know husky still lists an SM but i think ktm dropped the smr from their lineup. There is a 450exc depending on year. Only in the six days edition. After the early 00s the smr model had very little changed from an sxf model. Suspension valving, triple clamps, slipper clutch and some trans gearing differences. Obviously the wheels and brakes.
I have been able to street title an sxf model but i was kind of lucky. I know a buddy that did the mail in route for a south dakota title. But honestly if your plan is street it would be less headache to buy and exc or fe model and convert to supermoto.
Husqvarna and ktm currently offer a factory Supermoto. Husky for a bit now and ktm brought it back for 2021 and I’ve had no issues so far. The dealer said they can plate it before I leave and have been really helpful. There’s a lighting kit and such out there. I know an enduro converted might be easier but I want the factory tuned sm for around town hoonigan stuff.
Good to know ktm brought it back for 2021! I'll have to dig in to see what has changed.
I guess my point is that there isnt much difference between the sxf and smr. When i built my 12 i couldnt find a 12smr in the us so i bought an sxf. What i found was that the parts i added were upgraded from what ktm had at the time. You can also buy every smr part from the hardparts catalog.
If the dealer will plate a new bike for you that certainly helps!
Yep it’s back baby! Haha. I know it’s essentially an sxf450 but with ktm tuning it specifically for sumo I can’t imagine it’s not worlds better than me tuning an sxf by myself in the garage ya know? And I’m hoping much cheaper as well. The dealer has been great in helping me make a race bike a street legal hooligan. Any pa buyers I recommend schaeffers ktm/Motorsports.
I checked on the ktm site and see the smr back. I havent had a moment to check the differences but i wouldnt bet its different than you can build. The only thing inwould wonder is if the ecu is different for the traction control. Ill dig into it a bit more.
I have a fully street legal 2012 SMR if you’re interested? There’s a lot that goes into it, and mines CA plated. Some states will allow you to plate anything but most don’t let you run a plate unless it comes from the factory with one.
