ktm know enough about the 690 now to elimiate its few reliability issues. Everything is there already to produce a modern lightweight, high tech, quality, purpose built adv bike with 80's honda like dependability and ease of maintainance. That bike, if it ever gets built, could stand the adv market on its head....the frustrating thing is ktm are soooo close to it with the 690e/r but they pulled the cutain before the final act
