The adventure tourer segment has been gaining a lot of attention of late. Almost every motorcycle manufacturer is working on bringing out such an offering. The latest to enter this scene is SWM Motorcycles from Italy.  Not a popular brand outside Italy, SMW motorcycles has an interesting portfolio of cafe racers, classics and adventure tourer as well. MotorRoyale is planning on bringing the motorcycle brand. And the first product to enter the country us the Superdual adventure tourer. Shumi has already ridden it and you can read his detailed first ride report here. Scroll below to see the details of the SWM Superdual T.

 

SWM SuperDual T Studio front

The SWM presents a skinny front cross-section. Ignore the additional lights, it is clear that these studio shots have been superseeded by a slight change in spec

 

SWM SuperDual T front 3/4

The Superdual T has a lofty seat height at 890mm but don’t panic just yet. The long suspension sags a bit when you climb on and most peoplewill be able to get at least the toes down.

 

SWM Superdual T side profile

Stripped off the luggage, the SWM Superdual T looks (and feels) like a big dirtbike. The panels looks good and the quality levels are par for the course.

 

SWM SuperDual T rear 3/4 static

The SWM Superdual T looks skinny but capable from the rear. Note twin exhaust – a Husqvarna-quirk is present on almost all the models

 

SWM SuperDual T REAR 3/4 STATIC

The SWM Superdual T is a basic motorcycle in the sense of its single-downtube crable frame and other aggregates. But it rides well on its long-travel suspension and feels good on broken tarmac

 

SWM Superdual T front wheel

The front-end of the SuperDual T has the FastAce adjustable upside-down forks, Brembo sliding caliper brakes, a 300mm disc and road-biased on-off road Metzeler Tourance tyres on an 19-inch spoked rim

 

SWM SuperDual T auxiliary lights

The auxiliary lights are not standard equipment on the SWM Superdual T and might be offered as either a higher trim or an accessory kit

 

SWM Superdual T engine

The SWM 600cc engine is fuel-injected and makes 54PS/53.5Nm. The liquid-cooled engine traces its lineage back to a Husqvarna engine but has been updated to meet the current emissions norms

Here’s the SWM Superdual T before the final stickers and the OEM tyres were fixed. You can see the dirt bike heritage in the stance and in the bodywork

SWM Superdual tank image

The Superdual T is the touring model and the name underlines SWM’s intent for the motorcycle to be light and fast so that it can handle both on- and off-road conditions

 

SWM SuperDual T Fuel tank cap

The SWM Superdual T fuel tank cap is that little ‘shield’ in plastic which opens up. In many ways, including the small gas tank cap, the Superdual reveals it dirt bike origins

 

SWM SuperDual T (22)

The SWM Superdual T has simple switchgear. The soft rubber throttle grip just has an old-school engine kill switch and a starter button

 

SWM SuperDual T Left side switchgears

The left side switches have the headlight controls, horn and indicators. The extra toggle is for the auxiiary lights that SWM says is part of the optional touring kit
