Oops I did it again - KTM 690 Enduro R

Postby pingvin » Fri Aug 13, 2010 12:18 pm

Bought myself a used (9000km) 09 690 Enduro R. Mostly ridden on tarmac (on motard wheels) and in very good condition. Got slip-on and KTM cam (is that what it's called?) so got 75hp. Feels really powerful compared to a Duke I tested earlier.

So plan is to ride it on gravel roads and some easy off road. And buy motard wheels and maybe compete in a single cylinder class (on race tracks, not motard tracks) they've got here next year. Very versatile bike, can be used for fairly tough off road, motard and even on longer trips.

That looks like fun. Would be nice to have over here now (in the Rockies).

Lots better than my VStrom on the nastier unpaved pass roads.
