Supermoto machines are seriously good fun. SWM has joined the party, announcing the 2019 SM 500R to Australia.
With fresh new graphics to compliment the sleek black, white and red colorway, the twin exhaust pipes complete the tough-looking rear-end while the beefy 320mm over-size front brake rotor means business at the front. The 2019 SM 500R leaves no doubt that this machine is aimed at high performance riding in sophisticated fashion.
“The new SWM SM 500R is the direct result of customer demand,” stated SWM Australia’s Stephen Tuff. “And just one look at this beast reveals some serious motorised sex appeal so we expect a strong retail reaction to this model. The SWM SM 500R is LAMS approved and can definitely be called upon as a reliable commuter. However, there’s 50 shades of fun to this machine and they can all be found in your application of riding.”
The 2019 model SWM SM 500R comes with the same sleek and stylish indicators fitted to the SWM RS enduro models, offering a refined look to compliment the new seat, front headlight and surround. The new seat offers increased comfort while the unmistakable 17-inch wheels visually categorise the SM 500R as a supermoto street machine.
The SWM SM 500R comes with a 12-month/20,000km parts and labour warranty and is priced at a bitumen burning $9,990 (rec retail) plus on road costs.
