That's about a grand more than I put into my 950 back in 2004. Heck the real KTM dirt bikes are only a few hundred less than the 690. It's a bargain!
I'm a bit less, but bought mine used. What I found is that a few years ago they couldn't sell the enduro's, now in the last year they've become very popular (according to local dealer as well). Three of us rented them in Costa Rica for a week last year, and all own one now, and local dealer basically has his sold before they arrive.
Get to do it all again with a 500 soon, fortunately they have as good or better rack options and plenty of stuff to throw on.
