Once you swing your leg you know just how serious the 640 is. You can feel the 150 plus kg shift to feet, which I might add are touching the ground as the seat is three feet from firma. The 640’s got a single 625cc four … mounted into its chrome steel frame.

Chrome isn’t just a big word used as a marketing gimmick, it is a steel alloy that has rigidity and tensile strength and can high levels of stress. The the Enduro’s single cylinder dates back to 1987 it replaced KTM’s air-cooled
