The KTM 890 SMT is a versatile motorcycle that is suitable for sporty cornering as well as longer tours and occasional visits to the race track.  Equipped with a powerful engine, high-quality chassis and extensive electronic equipment, it offers riders a comfortable and customizable riding experience.

Ideal for versatile riders: The KTM 890 SMT

The KTM 890 SMT is designed for riders looking for a motorcycle that is suitable for sporty use on winding roads as well as for longer tours and occasional visits to the racetrack.  With its combination of performance, handling, comfort and versatility, it should appeal to both experienced and less experienced riders who want the best of both worlds:  Fun and adventure on twisty roads and relaxation on long trips.


Powerful heart: The engine

The KTM 890 SMT is equipped with an 889 cc DOHC parallel-twin engine that delivers 105 PS (103.23 hp / 77 kW) of power at 8,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.  The engine is connected to the drivetrain via a six-speed transmission and with an intermediary anti-hopping clutch.

It benefits from a state-of-the-art fuel injection system.  The cooling system consists of a liquid cooling system with water-oil heat exchanger to ensure optimum engine operating temperature.  Engine management and ignition are controlled by a Bosch EMS system with ride-by-wire technology that provides precise throttle response and power delivery.

To support the rider assistance systems, the KTM 890 SMT features an MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) that is lean angle dependent, offers three different modes and can be switched off.  An optional TRACK MODE is also available.  The motorcycle’s emission values are 107 g/km CO2, and fuel consumption is 4.6 l/100 km.


High-quality chassis and brakes

The chassis of the KTM 890 SMT consists of a lightweight and robust chromium-molybdenum steel frame that uses the engine as a load-bearing element.  The front suspension features a 43mm WP-APEX suspension that is adjustable for compression and rebound.  The rear wheel is supported by a WP-APEX monoshock shock that is adjustable for preload and rebound.  Both offer 180 mm of suspension travel.  Optimum deceleration is provided by two radially mounted four-piston calipers with 320 mm brake discs at the front and a two-piston floating caliper with 260 mm brake disc at the rear.  The KTM 890 SMT also features a Bosch 9.3 MP ABS system that includes cornering ABS and supermoto ABS.

The KTM 890 SMT is equipped with a sporty one-piece seat, which has a seat height of 860 mm and provides a comfortable riding experience.  The machine features lightweight, cast aluminum rims in 3.50 x 17″ front and 5.50 x 17″ rear dimensions fitted with 120/70 ZR 17 and 180/55 ZR 17 tires.  The adjustable handlebar is made of aluminum and is tapered, with a diameter of 28/22 mm.  This combination allows the rider to adjust the ideal position for maximum riding comfort and control.


Electronic equipment and riding modes

The KTM 890 SMT offers a comprehensive range of electronic features, including three standard riding modes (RAIN, STREET, SPORT) to adapt the machine to different riding situations and weather conditions.  RAIN mode offers smoother power delivery and increased traction control, while STREET mode provides a balanced ride for everyday use. SPORT mode, on the other hand, allows for more aggressive power delivery and reduced traction control for sporty riding.  An optional TRACK mode allows riders to further customize the electronics and make individual adjustments to fully realize the machine’s potential on the track.

The machine is also equipped with lean angle-dependent traction control (MTC), which can be adjusted in three stages.  The MTC adjusts engine output according to lean angle and road conditions to ensure optimum traction and stability.  This feature enhances safety and enables controlled handling without compromising riding enjoyment.  Additionally, riders can completely disable traction control if they wish.  Quickshifter+ and engine drag torque control (MSR) are also available as options to further enhance the driving experience.


Comfort and connectivity on long rides

The KTM 890 SMT is designed to provide riders with a high level of comfort and state-of-the-art connectivity on long trips.  The focal point of the cockpit is the 5-inch TFT display, which is made of optically bonded mineral glass, making it scratch- and glare-free.  The display is fully customizable and allows riders to easily navigate through the user-friendly menu system to select their preferred settings and displays.

The KTM 890 SMT is also compatible with the KTMconnect app, which can be downloaded to a smartphone and then synced with the bike.  Through the app, riders can track their navigation in real time, receive turn-by-turn instructions, make and receive calls, and control music playback.  The app also provides access to a support center, enables monitoring of maintenance intervals and provides user manuals.

Another highlight of the KTM 890 SMT is the powerful LED lighting, which provides excellent visibility day and night without being bulky or heavy.  The LED headlights and taillights are durable, energy efficient and blend seamlessly with the bike’s attractive design.  Optionally, riders can equip their motorcycle with heated grips for added comfort in colder temperatures and to make longer rides even more enjoyable.


Ergonomics and dimensions

The KTM 890 SMT has a seat height of 860 mm, a wheelbase of 1,502 mm and a ground clearance of 227 mm.  The 15.8-liter tank allows for an impressive range with a consumption of 4.6 l/100 km.



With the KTM 890 SMT, you benefit from KTM’s DNA and racing successes and get a motorcycle that is both sporty and comfortable and versatile, according to KTM.  The 890 SMT is meant to be the answer to everything, whether you’re looking for fun riding on twisty mountain roads, relaxed touring or occasional track visits.  Its powerful and customizable components, electronics and connectivity are meant to make it a perfect companion for all kinds of motorcycle adventures.  Of course, KTM offers other optional accessories to further refine or individualize the bike.
