    Just picked this bike up second hand from a dealer after spending the last 8 years on a 2005 SXC625. God I loved that bike, yeah I know it was big on vibes, the seat was a vinyl covered 4*2, and it slurped fuel like a sailor on leave. <br /><br />But Christ it was a willing partner in off-road adventures. Steep rock strewn hill climbs, bogs deep enough to pour mud into your boots, single track forest lanes, or hard pack gravel roads, just pull the trigger and hold on. At the end of the day just hit it with the high pressure hose, change filters and your ready for next week. <br /><br />I put on 34000ks before blowing the motor on the highway to Sydney. I already knew the worth of the bike had dropped, I had already tentatively shopped it around as a trade-in and hadn't been offered more than $2,500AU. Got quotes to rebuild motor from $3-5,000. It looked like throwing good money after bad. <br /><br />Sold it to a wrecker as is for $1,250 and bought the 2012 690R Enduro as its replacement. Only had it two weeks and done 300ks none off road yet (this weekend) so I don't know the bike too well yet. <br /><br />Vastly different machine to the SXC, apart from being way more sophisticated (dual spark, slipper clutch etc etc), the first thing I noticed when I got it home (trailered) was I couldn't fit my bike lift underneath. Going for a ride the suspension feels wound up really stiff, not bad on the bitumen but needs to be softened before the weekend. <br /><br />The first 4 gears are so close together, I don't know what sort of riding they're for but not the sort I do. Once your up in 5 & 6 there is no need to change too much, torquey single cylinder and all that. I'm worried 1st will be too tall off road, I'll find out on the weekend, there is a few remedies if this proves to be true. <br /><br />The first 250ks returned 29ks per litre. I checked my calculations, I couldn't believe it either. I did mostly twisty poor quality back roads and didn't often get over 80kph so I expect that to come down once we get to know each other and start to push it a bit harder. <br /><br />Will post another rant once I've got to know the bike a bit better and if I can think of anything interesting to say. Read the thread on 690Rs and their oil burning tendencies, watching the oil glass like a hawk.<br />

    Love my other bike, a 2014 Honda CRF 250L, LRP, but this KTM 690 is a dream come true! The Honda is pretty much gutless on the highway, Offroad, with a ton of mods, it kicks ass! The KTM 690 is lighter and Has more Horsepower than a sane person will ever need! This is my new all around Adventure bike!

    KTM 690 Enduro R (2010)


    I'd give it a five star if it wasn't for all the problems it had to begin with. Poorly tuned and a defective fuel pump from the get-go. Too bad KTM wasn't on top of it.
  11. I'm undecided what to do.ive been checking the Ktm 690r and it seems to be the perfect dual sport for me. I currently have an 09 xr650L with a pipe,UNI filter,oil cooler setup,carb upgrade. I can't seem to get over the fact it doesn't have balls galore!! Also that it's somewhat of a heavyweight on the tight tecnical trails. So my question is should I keep dumping more money on her or just keep her as is and buy the ktm.all inputs are welcome.

  13. Hi all! This question has been asked but it was way back when. I'm about to buy a new (for me) bike. I've done endless research and narrowed my options down to: DRZ400s, KTM 690 Enduro ®, Honda XR650R and BMW Xchallenge. As you can see I'm looking for the lightest big singles and the reason for this is that ill be doing a lot of thick sand, mud and the likes type of riding. 10min to work and another 10 back on tar everyday. Open gravel, sand, muddy terrain every weekend and long holidays up in Africa. Found two bikes for sale: KTM 690 enduro R, 2011 model, 30 000km, with a few extras for R43000 (3050 USD) Honda XR650R, 2005 model, 11500km, loads of extras, already roadworthy, bike in mint condition R55000 (3890 USD) Which one of the two would you choose? (keep in mind that here in SA both honda and Ktm are plentiful) Attached are two photos of the bikes.

    KTM's 2018 690 Enduro R was built with the serious off-road enthusiast in mind. Built in Austria but ridden the world over, the 690 Enduro R was designed to be taken straight off the showroom floor and ridden away from the truck and into the elements - a 3.2-gallon tank provides fuel for the journey. Of course, a wide variety of mods for the 690 Enduro R are available through a number of aftermarket companies in order to help you fine-tune this KTM to your exact liking, although some of these changes may render it a competition-only machine. See what we think of the 690 Enduro R and similar machines. In the last two decades, KTM's off-road lineup has made the Austrians the brand to beat-from the desert to the trees to the rocks, and everywhere in between. KTM's success is unprecedented, and bikes like the 2018 690 Enduro R have helped catapult the brand to the top of the podium on more occasions that we can count. Machines like these have earned the overall at notorious desert races like the Dakar Rally and the Baja 1000; they've logged countless victories in the GNCC, National Enduro, and Hare & Hound circuits; they've blown us away at hard enduros like the Erzberg Rodeo and Red Bull Romaniacs, and they are all available and, as the company's tagline promises, "ready to race" right off the showroom floor. See below to read more about the 2018 690 Enduro R - but don't neglect the numerous other models that KTM has to offer.

  24. Well I have come to the end of my patients with trying to adjust this bike so I do not get a front tire wobble at 65mph. I have tried to align the forks and that helps a little. I have tried adjusting the compression and that helped as well. It is worse with a stiff spring from race tech .54 which is their heaviest spring. I have just ordered a .48 spring to see if that helps. The front is mushie with stock spring because I am 240lbs. I have a stock ride height. If this does not work I will take it back to dealer to see what they can do. If they can not correct this then I will have to ask for factory rep to evalute because this is unsafe to ride on highway. This problem has been there from the day I picked up the bike from dealer. I like the bike but if this cant be corrected then I will sell bike and buy a KTM690 Enduro R.
