Seriously considering a 2010 KTM 690 Enduro.   Any reasons why I shouldnt go for it and rather get the updated 2013 up models?

If you can get a good '10 go for it. They had 275mm suspension compared to 250mm of '12 and later. '12-'13 got 690cc engine vs 650, slightly better seat and headlight. And thats about all i know off.

I see you have a DR 650. I went from one to a 690 and have not looked back for one second. Take the DR and multiple everything by at least 2. Horsepower, suspension, brakes, chassis.

I like the DR, but the 690 is just so much better✊✊✊

If it is a true Enduro, it will be lower than the R with less suspension travel.
2010 Enduro has similar speedo to the current R models and has a different frame colour to the R. Think Enduro had a black frame and the R was orange.

I had one and did the 2012 Amageza on it. The lower setup was an advantage because I am not that tall.
IMO a good bike if you get it at the right price.

My bad, I thought they only had the R model after '10 :thumleft:

I wonder what it would cost to get the suspension up to R spec?
