2016 KTM 690 Enduro R

Something of a hybrid between a dual-sport bike and an adventure bike, the KTM 690 Enduro R is truly as at home on the street as it is the dirt.

You get street-style features such as ABS, a slipper clutch, and ride-by-wire, matched to a dirt-worthy chassis with long-travel WP suspension, plenty of ground clearance (plus a skidplate), as well as 18- and 21-inch wheels. Adventure riders will pine for a larger gas tank and a fairing, but long-distance dual-sport riders who relish difficult off-road routes will like it just the way it is.
