I talked to the KTM guys at mid ohio this weekend about a 690Adventure. I demo'ed the 690 Duke and loved the motor so I started asking about a 690A and the 3 dealers that where there and the demo crew all said that it was a long shot. They all said that sales were so low on the 640A's that it would take a huge market shift for KTM to release a 690A. I was bummed :( I cant believe the balls that 690 has. Its amazing for a single.
So I rode the 990A. WOW was all I could say. Perfect motor, roll on power in any gear at any RPM. It felt light for a big bike, the brakes were excellent and it handled great. Standing up over the bars felt just like a dirt bike. I LOVED that bike and its on the top of my list right now. The reliability issues and upper 30's MPG's are my only concerns. I really need a bike with a better tank range.
