cheaper than the RR version and different milling design.
I had it since day zero ... Which is one day before Seth's "day one" :) :) :) ... I had it on my 2008. Modified it for the 2011. Changed the bearings and communicate with Cleanspeed (very nice guy) to discuss it. I posted about it.

This brake pedals survived everything I could trow at it ... Bomb proof really. Totally smooth. That leads to and excellent modulation.

I use 3M paint protection film to guard my plastic and tank against the chaffing from the Giant Loop. And 3M Di-Noc faux carbon fiber to cover various bits like the BRP ignition plate, CS chain guard, and Doubletake Mirror.

Both are durable and work well.

different designs so i wouldnt say better.... RR has a more anglular design with webbing at the angles for strength.

the totals between the 2 with shipping to dirtbin is about the same (180 rand difference)

(im more of an umhlunga boy myself....)

for me there is a significant price difference as my shipping method is unconventional and also tax/customs free.

RR 162 inc delivery, customs free when delivered to a friend in EU

cleanspeed: 103 inc delivery

ill have to ask cleanspeed what the material spec is though...

Cool, now to find the cheapest way to get it to SA!!

If you'd asked a few weeks earlier, the missus could have brought it with her, but on the plane back here today. Sorry :(

If one were to purchase a new 2013 690R, is it possible to ride away and just ride it as is and be happy or are there must do mods to enjoy this bike?

The only thing I am aware of, and this all 2nd hand, is the stock can with the cat runs very hot and can melt plastic or the left turn signal. I bought mine used with a good list of aftermarket stuff that makes it better, but not really mandatory.

Thanks! So the bike and a slip on exhaust and I'm good? Quietest one? I leave at 4 in the AM for work. And does that require a remap? As soon as this damn snow melts, I'll be headed to check one out in person.

You have time to let the more knowledgeable ones chime in on your original question, and different exhausts. It's pretty much all in this thread.

You will be fine to ride as-is.

The stock exhaust is quiet, and does give off some serious heat. I have 1,500 miles on my 2012 Enduro R with stock exhaust so far and I am still getting to know the bike.

Put a few miles on the bike first, then build up a budget for the following:

$450 Wings exhaust
$100 Upper & Lower Tank Bolts from Rally Raid
$700 Scotts SubMount Steering Stabilizer with Rubber Mount
$150 Seat Concepts seat cover

Almost everyone changes the seat as the stocker is a plank for long rides.

+1 re' seat - very pleased with the Seat Concepts foam and cover.

The stock handuards crack at the first knock (mine did anyway) and the plastic engine guard is not very convincing ...

I wouldn't leap into a new exhaust, but if you do then get an aftermarket air filter to go with it - the KTM Akropovic map assumes that you have both, and the bike doesn't run well with only the Akro (or equivalent) ...
