2012 KTM 690 Enduro R

A HARD ENDURO FOR ALL CHALLENGES

Can you say “Hard Enduro”? What you mean is “LC4”. The KTM LC4 models have always made their mark in this category. Low weight, great performance, rugged off-road technology and the utmost reliability have always been their core values, and that is just
what makes the current 690 R the great bike that it is. A generous 250mm of suspension travel iron out even the deepest potholes. The slightly decreased travel slightly lowers the 690 Enduro R’s centre of gravity in MY2012, giving it an even more balanced ride – as dynamic as always but even more comfortable.

Competent Continental TKC 80 OEM tires ensure reliable traction right from the go. Functional, high quality components with plenty of well thought-out details easily withstand occasional ground contacts. The power plant, borrowed from the Duke 690 R, demonstrates a perfect throttle response and lots of power at any time, thanks to its sophisticated injection and "Electronic Power Trottle" (EPT) control. Simply a true Hard Enduro that goes along. Wherever.
