Title: New 690 feedback?
Post by: Dwerg on January 09, 2020, 12:32:28 pm
Does anyone have the new 690 Enduro? I haven't seen photo's or reports apart from @Ganjora 's SM. I am tempted to change from my 2014 purely for the suspension

2 of my friends have them since last year already, done bavaains , die hel and Namibia already. Seem happy enough, except for the lack of accessories.

Thanks I am not too bothered about accessories. Luggage plate and hand guards and I'm good to go. I am trying to justify forking out 90k over my perfectly good 2014. It seems a shame to let mine go for 60k

Why would you net consider a 790 again Dwerg? I mean you really loved that bike and it is not as tall right?
Or is the 690 a lot lighter and more capable in the rough stuff?
After reading some guys reviews on how good the 790 performs off road I was just wondering ???

I did enjoy the 790 a lot but I am planning on going back towards dirt bikes and that type of riding. The 790 was great. Never say never but I want to focus on tech riding for now anyway

Dwerg,

I think the new 690E is as high as my '18 701E ..... and when reading the nomer 'Dwerg' I wonder if you'd fit on that, mine is my highest bike I've ever owned and I'm a tall dude?  ???

The new chassis has a lower seat height than previous models. 910mm, the 2019 701 is 950mm

Having said that the 790 Adv is only 850mm and the R 879mm

My 2014 690 is also 910mm same as the new ones. The white ones are slightly taller I think. The 835mm low setting on the 790 was nice for every day use and touring luggage but Im ok with the 690 height for offroad use

Ah ja, correct, same forks as the 790R I think.
As I said, a genuinely tall bike to swing a leg over!

Weet jy wat is nog soos n dirt bike maar klein bietjie groter?

Nee wat eks happy in die thumper klas. Inteendeel, jy wat so min lang afstand ry, dis snaaks dat jy meer van groot bikes hou
