If you want to know first-hand what the word “ radicalGet a Supermotard. And if you want to bring its definition close to insane, get a KTM 950 Supermoto That smashes any curve and rears up as soon as he has a choice just by hinting at his right fist.
With a power output of almost 100 hp, a weight of 190 kg and typical KTM WP suspensions, this bike becomes something very worth riding. But its aesthetic and geometric appearance is not exactly something that stands out and less if you want to use it as a basis for a customization. But in Smoked garage They jumped into the mud and created a retro beast.
Much more classic but with the same essence
The people of Smoked garage In Badung, Bali, they are not huge fans of KTM aesthetics, so when their client Dominique showed up with a 2006 KTM 950 Supermoto and asked them what they could do with it, their answer was loaded with brutal honesty: sell it.
"At first it puzzled us as it looked so ugly. And we thought, 'you know what, we're going to sell this crap and buy a BMW R NineT to start with."
But after trying it, they decided to go ahead and once they had removed all the parts that gave it that look of enduroThey found the base to be nice. A little gem, ugly on the outside but very pretty on the inside. A diamond in the rough that could be used a lot.
The design required a bodywork completely new so a tank was built from scratch along with the seat, side panels and both fenders. Precisely the tank is what gave them the most work, there were a lot of cables hidden under it that had to feed the thirsty twin V-engine and its electronics.
The set of tires It has grown an inch and now they are classic 18 "spokes. The tires are offroad, Dunlop a little thinner than the original and with a classic pattern that gives this KTM a much more classic touch.
New elements include a full-LED headlight sourced from Harley-Davidson, mounted with custom brackets, and an LED rear brake light with integrated turn signals. Cognito Moto. Motogadget supplied the speedometer, handgrips, mirrors, front turn signals, and keyless start.
The handlebar It's ProTaper, the gas cap is from Joker Machine, and the license plate holder is custom made. The compact and circular section exhausts are from the Italian manufacturer MIVV and they give you the style point you were looking for for this KTM 950 Supermoto.
Initially, the entire project had to be carried out in about four or five months. As time went on the Smoked Garage team got more and more into the project and finally they were nine the months it took to apply that affection he deserves. Now it looks much better than before, but it still retains that touch of "hooliganism" that hides in its entrails.
