The 2009 KTM 950 Enduro R is a veritable terrain motorcycle and, like all big KTM it is built around a twin-cylinder, V 75-degree engine which in case displaces 942ccs. It electric starting and the much throttle response is ensured by a of Keihin CVRD 43 carburetors.

the engine puts down hp at 8,500 rpm and 90 Nm at 7,000 rpm, would have been enough for the bike to perform in the wilderness, but KTM thinks at everything, at the ride to the favorite riding That’s how the Super Enduro R up benefiting of a sixth gear increases the mpg as well as the bike’s top

A combination between enduro and the bike’s versatility is ensured by the “light weight” (418.88 as well as by the range of performance fitted on it. The trellis frame is out of the ordinary, but the 48 mm WP USD forks /WP mono and Brembo front (300 mm and rear (240 mm disc) are there to provide a quality on all kinds of terrains.

Standard the Super Enduro R features rubber, but replacing the wheels a pair of 16” supermoto will offer a whole kind of riding excitement as it the bike into an almost street one. This will also require a of aftermarket pipes to retune the for more low and mid rpm grunt, but let’s talking hypothesis and see how and when it all


KTM first presented the 950 Super Enduro R at the 2006 Motor Show in Milan and raced in May the same year at the Erzberg Rodeo competition it also won. This, with the feedback received David Knight, factory rider and expert Giovanni determined KTM editors to write: KTM 950 Super Enduro R is the ideal for all those who want to tackle everything. During chassis it dismisses the roughest abuse.

and over the WP absorber components into action just in Even hard-core expert is a bit surprised that the 950 Super R can be as good as new even after amounts of high flying.”

years after, the bike the very same possibilities as it is different than what launched back in ’06.

The first thing that you form the very first is the height of the bike. The seat is positioned at 38 inches from the so it requires for the rider not only to be in order to flatfoot the ground, but strong and experienced because talking serious motorcycling Pretty much an Adventure the full fairing, the 950 Super R is characterized by an aggressive front end a tall fender and angled

The forks do get a pair of mudguards, but no guards on the bars as it makes no to have an entirely mudded with perfectly clean apparently. But if we second thing it is much safer to do have guards (you’ll find in KTM’s Powerparts section) as prevent mud from getting on the and brake levers as well as on the hands so that the controls be always clean and good to on. Or is the handlebar to tall even for mud to that height?

Hugging the gallons tank are the aggressive plates with the manufacturer’s written big on them so it’s of hard to spot the V-twin as most viewers won’t enough with the exhaust only. There is indeed a 13 ground clearance, but that stop KTM from fitting the Enduro with a skid Most likely (also to the 62.09 inches wheelbase) piece won’t even get a on it as the 18-inch front/16-inch rear get the tough job done.

Black and Orange has been color combination for as long as we can so I guess that the 2009 Enduro R is a nostalgic.


Although not totally redesigned as a model year, the bike stand out as a tire ripper and gas burner and this can only one thing. Impressive amounts of and torque are available at all rpm levels a single twist of the throttle and the condition of being in the right The engine enjoys being with satisfying results on the open road and out in the desert all the fun begins.

The very tall is the biggest obstacle stopping to get the best out of it, but the few that overpass obstacle couldn’t be happier their bikes/future bikes as KTM to ensure that loads of will be delivered especially exploiting the low and mid of the rev range. Like on all throttle response is excellent the engine isn’t carbureted expecting it to be on future model and the bike is perfectly suitable for enduro.

Everything from steep climbing, passing rivers and over logs and rocks is the task that this could possibly be asked to while wheelies are there to be invited to join the scene at all That’s why we feel that will make a great as well, but we couldn’t pass the off-road part, not to mention urban or track fun.

the 250 miles run that we had on it we needed to the gas tank twice and we didn’t rode the thing aggressively at all so the V-twin engine is as hungry as it is but aren’t all beasts like This one felt fairly even after the respective of miles, but if you’ll challenge it, the Enduro will exhaust you fast. Yet, the vibrations at all harsh considering the rush get on it.

The chassis was designed for extreme exploitation so the long travel (9.84” front and 10.04 meet our requirements both hard landings and when obstacles a little bit too fast. fairly soft on standard the rider’s weight will get the closer to the ground, but still not for the average sized rider.

Stopping power is always as long as the rider chooses the surface on which to strongly the brakes. I certainly wasn’t inspired when braking on a of wet leaves sitting on some but at that moment I could pay attention to the guy waiting me with a canister of petrol.

Highly and very inviting, this is definitely not for beginners or faith and requires as much attention out in the as a supersport bike needs in the


Ever since the launch, KTM has just laid and enjoyed their bike’s without considering upgrading it in any way. After riding the Enduro R for enough to make an about it, we’ve come to the that a fuel injection won’t harm anyone. just too bad for the bike to miss as there is much greater waiting to be exploited in the 942cc motor.
