2012 KTM 690 Enduro R | Quick Look

2012 KTM Motorcycle

KTM has upped the ante on the 2012 690 Enduro R, giving it a full 690cc by stroking the motor.

To keep the big single manageable, the EFI is fly-by-wire, and there are three mappings to choose from.

Weighing in at a manageable 313 pounds waiting for fuel, the 690 Enduro R has a slightly lower seat height this year (36.8 inches) that is also designed to be more comfortable.

The WP suspension has new settings, and new plastic updates the 690’s look. An improved headlight means that the exploring doesn’t have to stop when the sun sets.

2012 KTM 690 Enduro R Quick Stats:

  • ENGINE TYPE: SOHC single
  • MAX HP: 67
  • SUSP. TVL. f/r: 9.8″/9.8″
  • MAX TORQUE: 49 ft/lbs
  • DRY WEIGHT: 313 pounds
