Wondering if any of you guys have one of these 690 replicas that could meet up with me for a 250 mile day ride on some of my routes here in the upper midwest of the USA? I'd really like to see one of these 690's out in the field and in action.

Last 690 I rode with was in Clark County, WI (sandy environment) and at that time I owned a TE510 so the comparison was exactly fair.

any takers out there?


sample of the routes

The routes I was thinking of and pictured above are in northern WI,, Cable, Drumond, Bayfield. These were taken last Friday 10/12.. 25 degree morning and the reason for all the clothing. Also like Clark County, Black River Falls and Nemadji State Forest.

Hi guys:
I just make a journey through the Western Sahara where I really enjoyed the 690RFR. It is an awesome bike for the fast in the desert areas. There have been 3,200 km's of pure and solitary desert without assists for 6 intense days, driving from morning until night. A very committed and unique experience with my friends.
I send a greeting.

I can guarantee you can't make one yourself. They are vastly different to the enduro in many ways.
As for what they're worth like all things theyre worth what someone is willing to pay for them
If it were me I'd suggest you buy one if you can afford it. You won't be sorry but your bank manager might be!!!

There is no rally kit available to make a 690 Rally Replica per se.
The standard 690E/R is equipped with fuel injection ( versus carb for the RR ), has a different frame and no instrument tower etc. The 690RFR has other RR-tailormade tanks both front and rear ( very expensive as parts ) and is widely different from the 690R/R standard bike.

Vey nice pictures, shebanano. Did the powerful KTMs had to wait long for the small DRZ to catch up with the Austrians?

And what happened to that hose? Did it get loose after the crash in the mud?

In a way, you're blessed as you just got to hop on a Condor to St Malo and then make it to the euro sellers location!! Ride and ferry it back!!
