Ultimate protection for your digits!

Have you seen the handguards that come stock on the new KTM 990 Supermoto T? They are the best handguards we have seen for adventure riding and they could be on your bike this week. They are bigger than the stock handguards that come stock on the 950/990 Adventure. They fit most of the models on our site and should fit yours without any problems. They look the part, act the part and are priced just right.

KTM 990 Super Duke R Ergo Seat

The KTM 990 Super Duke R is a sweet bike except for the seat. We attempted to offer up our own special comfort seat for the Super Duke R but logistics simply didn’t allow us to keep up with demand. Well KTM has finally done it with their KTM 990 Super Duke Ergo Seat. They finally got enough response to justify their own comfort seat for the Super Duke R and it is on it’s way. Keeping the design lines of the Super Duke was important and KTM’s comfort seat compliments those very well. The seat is made on the stock seat pan and has a layer of foam with a special gel pad on top of that just under the seat cover. This allows your backside to sink into the seat a little giving uniform support.

Keep your stock seat for the track and pick one of these up for your commute. Your backside will thank you every time you decide to ride your bike.

Replacement Levers you don’t have to finance!

If you have had to replace your levers on the 950/990 Adventure or 950 Super Enduro then you know that these are probably the most expensive dirt bike levers ever produced. Well KTMtwins.com did the research and found you a set of KTM 950/990 Replacement Levers that won’t break the bank. They are forged aluminum just like the stock levers, but since they are much cheaper you get to buy both this time instead of having to wait until you get paid to buy the other side. Pick up a spare set today before word gets out and we can’t keep up with demand. Available for both the 950/990 Adventure and 950 Super Enduro. We will have more available for the other bikes in our line up shortly.

Sidi Adventure Riding Boots

When you are looking for your next set of Adventure Boots look no further. Sidi makes some of the most innovative foot protection out there. Made in Italy and constructed of the finest Split Grain Leather these boots have all of the bells and whistles that more expensive boots offer but at a more reasonable price. Some of features you can expect from the new Sidi Adventure Boots are an internal waterproof membrane to keep moisture and river water out, shock resistant and anatomically shaped heel protection, replaceable buckle system, removable arch support, Lorica toe shift-brake pad and their unique and innovative ankle flex system. We really think these are going to be the boot of 2011. Available in all sizes and in stock today!

We are excited to add to the already available kits for the 950 and 990 Adventure, engine kits for all the other bikes on our site. From the 690 Supermoto to the always popular RC8R they have you covered. Don't think of their kits as just some more orange to add to your engine.

Elka KTM 990 Super Duke 3 Way Racing Shock

Elka has been a major player in motorcycle and car suspension for some time now and should be a consideration for all of you Super Duke owners when looking for the best damping control for your motorcycle. The Elka KTM 990 Super Duke 3 Way Racing Shock features high and low-speed compression adjust-ability to provide squat and traction control during cornering and acceleration, keeping the contact patch of the tire on the track while allowing smooth absorption of bumps and obstacles. In short, it keeps you glued to the track. These are not an "off-the-shelf shock" - they are custom-built and sprung specifically for you to get the maximum performance for your specific personal use. No need to change the spring or have it re-valved. Install it and ride. After all, that's what it's all about.

CRG’s new Arrow Bar End Mirror

We have known the guys over at CRG for years now - they design and make some of the nicest products on the market. Their 3 inch round bar end mirrors have been the staple on most high end European and Japanese bikes for years now. Their new CRG LC8 Billet Aluminum Arrow Mirror teardrop design is stylish and functional and looks amazing on every KTM we have mounted them too. The support arm now offers two distinctive adjustments rather than just one. They are a bigger then their 3 inch version due to their teardrop design, but not big enough to take away from the lines on your motorcycle. The best part about them is they mount onto CRG’s bar end adapter so if you already have the CRG’s 3 inch mirrors and want to upgrade - you don’t have to spend the money for new adapters.

KTM’s Evo 1 Performance Kit for the KTM 690 Enduro and SMC

Looking to open up some more ponies from your 690 Enduro or SMC? KTM and Akrapovic have worked together to offer all of you 690 owners the KTM 690 Enduro/690 SMC Evo 1 Complete Tuning Package that will open the door and let that hidden horsepower out. On top of Akrapovic’s all Titanium Full System you get a new open style airbox allowing more air into the engine. This is the secret to the whole package. With more air in, and more air going out you will allow the engine to breath much better and that makes your engine very happy. This kit will require you to have your local KTM Service Department install Akrapovic’s Open map in order for this kit to run right.
