You going to LOVE it, now get the Kit, that puts the whole picture in Focus!! Setting 3 is themost manageable in all conditions.
Motorsport is the only sport, the rest are just GAMES!!

Very nice, been considering upgrading the standard 690 with the rally kit. Christmas is coming.....
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy

I just tested a 690Enduro the Rally/adventure kit from the UK.  :drif: :drif: :drif: :drif: :drif:


It feels so light especially after the 990. (Don't tell fifie I said she is fat.  :deal: )
I am by no means a good rider, but that bike is so nice to ride. The fuel setting was on the sport setting and the vibration was almost non existent. 

I would have prefered the tanks to be a bit narrower in front, but that is all I can complain about.

As with all KTM's I have ridden. I was immediately comfortable. I took the bike back to KTM CT before I started doing stupid things within 10min. Thanks for the test ride, you evil people.  ;D
