Just easier for me. The 500 was more in line with a race bike. Incredible bike, but very sensitive throttle that was tough to handle in the slow rocky trails.

The 690 has a very easy dial that can change the engine mapping. I ran with the softest setting and found it much easier to manage the throttle in the slow speed stuff.
