I'd buy 690R and a kit from Alberto Dottori with his new lookalike 690RR faring and then proceed to build my own 690 Rally, rally parts are popping up like weed in your lawn! Same loox and a lot cheaper and easier ownage...
Sounds OK. This is after all a competition rally tool.
I still await comments on service and carb maintenance demands from an owner or regular user of the 690 Rally Replica.

Based on this video I suspect the carb needs careful tuning:
