At the recent launch of the new ABS version of the KTM 990 SMT, MCN’s Adam Child was suitably impressed:
“There’s no pulsing or juddering from the brake lever – it’s refined and very effective, with the front ContiSportAttack finding every last shred of available grip.
KTM is keen to point out that the new system has been designed to work specifically with Continental Tyres – as with other ABS bikes, different tyres affect the performance of the system. But as it stands the combination of Conti rubber, huge Brembo radial brakes and fully adjustable 48mm WP forks with a very clever ‘brain’ controlling the brake pressure results in one of the best stopping bikes on the market.”
