2023 KTM 690 Enduro R Buyer’s Guide [Specs, Price + Photos]

2023 KTM 690 Enduro R Buyers Guide: MSRP

Despite its name, the 2023 KTM 690 Enduro R does not part of KTM’s Enduro lineup. Instead, this rangy trellis-framed motorcycle is slotted as a Travel bike, placing it in the same category as KTM’s Adventure models. Powered by a 693cc single, the 690 Enduro R weighs 350 pounds with its 3.6-gallon underseat fuel tank filled, so it legitimately sits between KTM’s dirt-focused Enduro bikes and the more streetable Adventure lineup.

Certainly, the 2023 KTM 690 Enduro R is dirt-capable. The WP Xplor suspension offers nearly ten inches of high-quality wheel travel at both ends, plus a pure-dirt 21-/18-inch wheelset with D.I.D Dirtstar rims. However, ADV-style tires and high gearing will keep you away from technical trails. However, when a high-quality dirt road makes itself available, 100 mph is not out of the question, thanks to a six-speed transmission.

KTM gives the 690 Enduro R plenty of electronics you wouldn’t expect on a big single ready for the dirt. There’s a quickshifter and two power modes (Street and Offroad), plus traction control and Bosch ABS (both cornering aware and defeatable). There’s also an optional Offroad ABS that turns off the rear wheel ABS, but leaves a bit of ABS in reserve for the front wheel. We found this all out last time we tested the KTM 690 Enduro R.

The 2023 KTM 690 Enduro R has a price tag a buck short of $13k, and comes in one color—we’re sure you can guess what that is.
