Cyril Despres KTM 690 Rallye - Detail Shots

Hey guys,

While browsing through all the crap on my PC, I stumbled across some cool pics I took earlier this year during the Yamaha Ténéré Meeting in Mothern, France.

The event was actually the 25th aniversary celebration of the Ténéré series from Yamaha (MEANING ONLY FOR YAMAHA OWNERS ), when all of a sudden this guy with the KTM cap showed up with his car, trailer and....





I was like, WTF?!? Is that Cyril Despres bike?!? Upon closer inspection, I was able to verify what I could tell from a far.... (my little bro. on the left )





As you can see, this bike was slowly grabbing the attention of many a rider!





More detailed pics to follow!

Sweet pictures! I really love that combination, so much better than orange! We tried to get the same color but KTM wouldn't do it, even talking to top brass there. IIRC it had to do with copyright on the color or something. I also noticed some things that are different from the version sold to normal customers: -Adjusters on top of the forks are missing? -Left remote for ICO and roadbook is one piece

Great stuff. It`s not often we get to see up close detail on those bikes. Good out of the way position for the water tanks.

Has the KTM hard parts PHDS bar mount system. Nice. That system works well, just pricey. Best to buy it used.

I got to check out Stan Watts' 690RR recently...

They are beautifully laid out, arent they

The tiny details are what strike you - like the rubber guard on the handlebar where the throttle-cables rub (missing from Cyril's bike, above).

So much space - and everything important is easy to access. Fuel pump, regulator, lights, sentinel, etc, etc
