Well *Pete* a true SM has spoked wheels, not cast alum wheels. Alum wheels will not hold up in large jumps. A *true* SM has more ground clearance (11-12 inches) than a Duke II (5-6 inches travel
front and rear) and the suspension is softer on a *True* SM. The Duke has stiff suspension and is more street oriented. It would be better suited for the track if you were to ride it like a sportbike.
The Duke I would be a good example of what a *True* Sm is.
Also if you'll Notice that KTM has released a KTM LC640 SuperMoto. It is a *True* SM
The SM also has a leading axle and a longer wheelbase. If you wan't to slide it's easier to control on the SM. It's would also be better Off Road.
Anything else Pete?
Wow thanks ronny! You and I think so much alike!
