KTM packs a lot of power into single cylinder engines. I was just going over the Intermot coverage from a couple of weeks ago and I noticed this KTM 690 Supermoto. Reading the specs is interesting, it's a single cylinder 690, actually displacing 654cc, with a power output of 63 horsepower! That's not bad.
The absolute high point on the KTM stand - and a highlight of INTERMOT 2006 is the entirely newly developed 690 Supermoto. Driven by an all-new single-cylinder engine with 63 hp, reduced vibration, electronic fuel injection, an easy to operate APTC clutch and a new 6-gear transmission, this bike not only sets new benchmarks in terms of top performance, it also represents a strong statement by the KTM brand concerning the single cylinder.
That could be an interesting engine for all sorts of bikes. Nice.
