2009 KTM 690 Enduro R Used Review – Besotted
The KTM 690 Enduro R should need no introduction; it has been around for a while hasn’t it? But, this particular Enduro R does merit a few words, because this is MY KTM 690 Enduro R, which is something entirely different. That’s because I test bikes, over 150 of them at last count, but when it came time to sign on the dotted line I chose the KTM 690 Enduro R. And it’s ruined me.

2009 KTM RC8 1190 – Poetry as Blood Sport
I’d boxed this guy up and shoved him away into a corner of my mind. I thought I’d moved on to more sensible things like adventure and touring, replacing this raving self with a better person, a responsible rider who takes the high road and chooses his moments. Then KTM comes along and hands this speed-ist hooligan a 155hp and 88.5 lb-ft of torque sledgehammer labeled RC8.
2008 KTM 950 Super Enduro R – The Cure for Common Sense
Periodically in a review I dance around the topic of whether a bike “spoke” to me or not. This is not one of those reviews. Let’s cut a swath of broken daisies through the meadow and directly to the point; the KTM 950 Super Enduro R is pure delightful lunacy.

No common street fighting thug, the Super Duke is out to…
Forbidden Fruit – KTM Super Duke 990
It seems that when it comes to motorcycles, the Euros always get the special stuff. Lots of exotica that we never see.

(oops…did I say that?…

Late 2003, the KTM 950 Adventure arrived here in North America with much fanfare. Almost a year later, the big KTM is still very much that intriguing new kid in town as ever. KTM is predominantly a builder of off-road motorcycles, that’s given the company a higher profile among the hardcore dirt types than most,…
2004 KTM 950 Adventure – Counterpoint
Every junior quantum physicist knows the creature: Schrodinger’s cat – a feline in a sealed box with a vial of poison. The cat may be alive or it may be dead, killed by a quantum event that may have released the poison from the vial. The poor thing exists only as a waveform – as…
