Had a KTM 390 Duke to dangle off the back of the van for 10 days then this came along. Same weight - lots more horses! What a hoot!  :badgerrock:

I've got the earlier 620, the 690 is a bit smoother, and a bit more powerful, but they really are good fun :)

 

Designed with just one thing in mind


9'er with a 17" front wheel and Samios remap  :)  happy days

A mate of mine has the 690, and while still running it in, let me loose on it. Same-ish weight as my DR650 (RIP) and about the same power as the DL650 I have. Even though I limited the performance to running-in requirements, that thing was a blast. Steering response at the speed of thought, and surprisingly comfortable for a small bike-large rider combo. Would have loved to have taken it through our mountains. I was almost infected by the Orange Madness...
