Okay, supermoto isn't really our game, but riding KTM's new 690 SMC R on the kart track at Portimao kind of re-ignited a forgotten love...

Friday 8th February 2019

Well, RUST went to the Algarve to test KTM's new generation 690 Enduro R (more on that very soon) but along the way got to swing a leg over the sibling 690 SMC R supermoto. And what a hoot riding that was!

This new 690 motor from KTM is exceptional and it works brilliantly either as a trail or a street motor, which is clever stuff. Got to like the so-easy handling of these bikes too. Anyway, the wee kart/supermoto track was simply playtime as you'll see here, lapping the track with a couple of Spanish pals.

Look out for our test report on both bikes coming soon. But in the meantime you can see – and hear – just a what a great bike this is in this short little video clip (thanks to Garmin for an amazing action camera too...).
