KTM’s 950 Super Enduro was already one of the most impressive big dual sports ever built, but the Austrian firm decided to make something a little bit fancier with the limited edition Erzberg Edition.

Ex-HMC Racer – 2013 KTM SMR450

In Austria, Race by Abhi0 Comments

Post Listing Update; This SMR was relisted a few times but it never got any interest at a lower BIN price of $10,500. The SMR450 is one of KTM’s best examples of their “Ready to Race” motto.
