2015 KTM 690 Enduro R
The Decathlete of bikesBy (I am an Owner) on Dec 18, 2015
I sold a Super Tenere and a DRZ400, replacing them with one bike: the KTM 690 Enduro R. This was the best purchase I have ever made (apart from my Samsung Galaxy Note 4!). This bike is insanely fast out-of-the-box and needs hardly any farkling to hit the trails hard. Stick an Airhawk cushion on the ... as-torture seat and you have a very cruise-able dual sport which is capable of comfortably cruising at 85mph, or blowing off traffic at 100mph when necessary. At 315 pounds, she is lighter than my DRZ, yet just as capable on the freeway as the Yamaha Super Tenere. She's a beast and has other riders constantly lusting over her each time we stop for air on long trail rides. Buy this bike and you'll understand why it's so damned expensive. Sell it anytime and get most of your money back, coz it has huge resale value since everyone wants one.
