ehmac: Love it, thanks for the video. Saving my pennies for a KTM 690. Gorgeous bike.

690Addicted: very very nice and very fast.What is your max speed. I have recently acquire a 690 enduro and I try to become a good enduro driver as I am a beginner ( 37 years old).Here in Morocco we have a lot of road to explore. I am not very tall (1,73 m ) so could you advise me about the best features for the suspension (rear and front) to be safe when you go fast.I follow the manual. standard 15 clics.

Kindest regards.

haha99jrwhatuphater: whats the top speed?

Pieter Nagel: @sneakiz93 Be proud and take care of any machine you own and you will be served well for years. New it machines get released every year.

Nebu oO: about 170km/h for flyby^^ 120/130kmh Sounds good for the Engine, and with Tkc80 you won´t drive 170 😉

Simo Mottarabit: i have a enduro r ktm what are good tires for the road?

beahead2010: @sneakiz93 Continental TKC 80 are marketed as dual purpose type tires. They offer decent performance on-road and allow you to do off-road as long as it’s dry. Changed to Metzeler Six Days Extreme as I decided to learn enduro.

The cam is a GoPro HD Hero with chest mount, movie captured in R3 mode (720 p, 60 fps) with OEM water-tight-case-back installed. Cheers, beahead2010

Morgan Nilsson: @pietern65 Yeah, I just bought a XL125V 08, no enduro, just a big commuter, but it will serve me well for a year or two before I go to a real bike, probably will be something more road oriented, like a Ninja 250, ER6-N or something alike, but, you never know :).

beahead2010: @blaneysiktube Sorry for not answering for such a long time. Lost my password 😉 I believe the 690 Enduro R is a wonderful and versatile bike and without comparison on the market. Bought the OEM tubeless wheels with sticky rubber eventually to be able to switch between 690 smc and enduro-r spec whenever wanted.

I strongly believe this bike is the swiss army knife amongst bikes. I finally sold the 690 and got a 350 exc-f (a.k.a Japanese chef knife) as I discovered enduro riding as a pasttime.

beahead2010: @rickyramjet Nice. Just spend most of the time on b-roads changing gears frequently, be a bit easy on revs and throttle and everything’s fine. That’s what KTM’s owner’s manual recommends.

blaneysiktube: Do you use this bike daily? and what’s it like to live with? I’m after getting a new bike soon, split between the KTM duke 690 R, This 690 enduro R, the 690 smc, or the all out touring triumph explorer. decisions decisions ha.

beahead2010: . and yes. you could use this bike daily. I didn’t, because I own several totally different bikes. Good memories whenever I see a 690 e-r.

TheSlashfan21: is it a better allrounder than the 500exc?

Morgan Nilsson: @beahead2010 Thanks 🙂 I am leaning towards enduro aswell, I just have to buy a bike first, it will probably be a KTM EXC 125, or something similar. Atm I am just commuting with a weak little XT125X :P, nothing to be proud of, since it barely reach 95kph, you have to push it a bit, haha!

blaneysiktube: @beahead2010 Ah right cool, theres so much choice of bikes i really don’t know. it might have to come down to the ip dip doo haha.

rickyramjet: What’s it like to do the break-in with no rev counter?


beahead2010: No. Like any other competition off-road bike.

Bob Barker: How to the O.E Tires hold up on road?

beahead2010: @690Addicted Re speed: Thanks for the kudos but I guess I wasn’t far beyond 100 kph (which is the limit on this road). Must be the camera perspective. You can hear me not reving hard on the straights – I just had fun. Racing is for tracks.

Re setup: Standard setting should be perfectly safe on-road, try sport as suggested by KTM if you think it’s too wobbly for you.

Morgan Nilsson: TKC 80, is that on/offroad dual purpose type, tires? Or just pure offroad, I looked em up, and they sure do look cool. And oh, I LOVE, the image quality of your cam, and the sound is just excellent. No anoying wind bruise and it catches the engine sound pretty well.

What kind of a cam is it? Thanks! With best regards, //Morgan.

Kola Kola: thanx for video

Mark Kaddy: Anyone know how much a bike like this cost?

TiFrankyy: the 350 exc it is good on road ?

mwhite36: About $10,000 (U.S.D.).

Embroik: im wondering whats better, enduro or supermoto? how much better is the supermoto on the road and can the enduro get up to redline without getting squirreley, how does it corner comopared to a sm. how much better is the enduro on trails
