Hi All

I thought I would post this out of interest. This looks like THE definitive rally kit for a 690.

I like my stock bike too much to convert to a kit like this, not to speak of the $$$. But man, if I were to I wouldn't mind putting this kit on my bike. Looks like excellent quality and it has been tested well according to advrider.

Interesting kit. It seems to make use of the front tanks, panels and windshield from the current 450RR.
At +100k (Rally Kit) excluding shipping I won't be ordering one anytime soon. But a really great looking kit nonetheless.

For sure. I think it is a different rear tank aswell, probably also from the 450 RR

Yes I think you are right about the rear tank. Don't know how I missed that.

Rear tank isn't included. 600 euro for that. Click on "Which kit are you" and step through the options. You can spend some SERIOUS cash there  :o :o

What does an Omega kit go for these days? Must be around the same price as the adventure kit. Plus this kit includes a front fuel pump (which you don't get with other kits), bash plate, exhaust header, seat, proper navigation tower.

Price doesn't sound too bad if you read through what you get.

I agree that the price is not that bad compared to the other kits out there. If you get a decent second hand bike for 80k - 90k you will have an awesome bike for relatively decent money.
