KTMax

The 660 SMC was my second KTM after the 640 LE .

The new 660 High Flow engine and the ‘real motard’ looks me. This kickstart only of the LC4 is still the best looking KTM IMO. Clean, simple and to the bone. Great.

It was clearly than the previous generation Stonger, better throttle and pickup etc. I think of this was down to the superb FCR41 carb that was better than the prehistoric used before.

On the bling mod side I was fairly with the SMC:


Braking disk

Brembo CNC caliper

SXC silencer

Open airbox

Brisk spark plug

SXS shock

Duke mirrors

lugage rack

Carbon fender bracket

With mods and the Carb set up on the dyno it was good. About as good as the generation LC4s get. It put out 60 HP and 68 Nm at the rear wheel.

And because it was pretty light there was little to complain its performance. The Brembo CNC caliper the wave disk made a improvement over stock. for the SXS rear shock.

More more controlled and more at the same. Expensive but good.

It was a bike to MX through the city. The travel suspension soaking up you could trow at it. Brilliant for wheelies, stoppies, jumping and about. Big fun!

Out in the open on B roads and trough the stuff it was not as good as the Duke This is where the long suspension showed its shadow Blasting up down a mountain with tight roads it was Although unecessary high on its with a higher C of G. But as speed up things started to deteriorate.

Feedback disappeared gradually and the became loose and vague. tweaking with the suspension and the SXS shock improved things but it got as planted and surefooted as a Duke. is no real criticism on the bike you simply can’t have steering and feel with travel enduro suspension at speeds.

I sold it after 1,5 for the 950 Adventure that just out in 2003. The shortest period had a KTM so far. After some 5 on LC4s it was time for a change and the new LC8 was too tempting. The 660 SMC was a great bike and I had a lot of fun it.

But we never became friends I was with the Duke.
