Sadly the smcr will never come to the us. Ive been waiting for years!

Dayday, I bought the xr specifically for bikes. Once I installed the tailgate reinforcement, its perfect now. Although I really enjoy the truck and have done suspension work on it.

Yeah, that sux. When I bought my 2009 SMC the dealer said he's never had an SMC on the show room floor because they were always sold before they even came in. Not sure why the US doesn't get them anymore.

Because if you don't buy a hellasic gixxah or a fat bagger you won't have any friends.

It's sad really, but the writing was on the wall years ago.

Nobody realizes but the US INVENTED THE GENRE in the 70s. And then after they wowed the crowd on TV everyone slowly forgot about it, except the French. They picked it up and rallied it into the 21st century at which point the rest of the world started to notice.

It is making a strong comeback, actually. Figure in a 5 year culture/marketing gap and I expect to see the successor to the current LC4 street supermoto sold here again.

I hope so. I got into the scene 10 years ago (I don't ride dirt, nor have a dirt background) and I feel in love with SMs. I remember in '07 everyone and their mother had a DRZ, and the euros started to bring out their race 'tards and things were looking good.

Then people suddenly realized that the DRZ sucks on the freeway, and the euro bikes came with way too much maintenance. You can't ride a 4T race bike on the street and expect 3,000 mile oil changes! Even the 'street' oriented SMs like the Husky SMS630, KTMs were not on anyones radar because no one wants to buy a 350lb $9,000 dirtbike with small wheels.

All the good bikes were gone, and KTM quietly retired the SMC/SM/SMR in the US market for reasons unknown.. Then in '12 they brought back the new Duke, and I was hoping for the SMCR, but nothing..

I am hoping the resurgence will commence, and we'll see some cool bikes come back to the US. I've owned a lot of SMs, including the Ape SXV, husky 610 , 510, KTM 625, 690, and a bunch of DRZs.

I really wanted the Husky 511, but they stopped selling them here as soon as I was serious to buy.

oh well...

Still think the 690SMC is the best compromise between race/street tards.
