Slipped-by everyone...

A coupla' weeks ago, I was on a thread pertaining to the 690RR. A gentleman, who goes by "DigiMan", added the below post to the thread. He seems to be very knowledgable about KTM's, and motorcycles in general.

It was the part of his post, that I highlighted in red, that really caught my eye.

With all the talk and speculation that is always being thrown-out in this forum, regarding the possibility of a 690 Adventure, I thought that more would try to visit the web address (like I did), and the thread would blow-up. However, the thread died, leading me to believe that not many people saw his post.

When I tried it, the web address did indeed take me to the KTM website. Here is "DigiMan" 's post...

JJ,

Nothing new in that post, KTM registered all those addresses many years ago (even before the huge 690 Adv/Rally/etc thread started).

And none of the parts he mentions from KTM Team West are their own, they are made by manufacturers well known on this forum for a long time (Safari tank, Alberto fairing, etc).

Thanks Lukas.


I knew about the "KTM Team West" stuff (I only included it because I wanted to quote his entire post.). I have tried to keep-up with the KTM T.W. stuff, and the offering(s) from Rally Management Services. The R.M.S. 690R "Adventure" stuff seems pretty trick to me. Then again, I've never raced a rally in my life...So, what do I know?

I knew there had to be a reason why it appeared that I was the only person who alerted to the "700ADVENTURE.COM" thing. And, I was hoping you would chime-in on this thread...I knew you would know.

There's another thread started in the Aussie forum, where some local KTM rep has said it seems to be coming - eventually.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=547223

There were a couple of other hopeful threads too that turned out to be furphies, but threats of slow death stopped that malarkey in its tracks.

I'm pretty happy with my enduro, but I suppose that a true 690 engine and a six speed gearbox might temp me.....in 2012!

You can have the adventure...

I'd be interested in the 690 Enduro Traveler with a tank like this




I suppose it would be consistent with KTM's super moto line-up:

990 SMR
990 SMT

690 Enduro R
690 Enduro T...or 690 ET......ET...Unicorn...take your pick!

Because it is. Ludo owned it for a short while.

A German company was/is working on getting the tank molds from KTM, but it might have been cost prohibitive.

Any updates on this thread? I would just want a 690R with one gallon more and not have to put up with a bulky add-on side tank or ridiculous price.

you could always buy a 690R and replace the airbox with the underseat fuel tank. Voila problem solved. I however am planning on changing my intake so that my airbox becomes a tool and spares storage area for rallying.
