lovely piece of kit for the 690, combine fuel of 32 litres according to specifications.

sadly it won't fit my budget. May change my mind when I'm there to see it for myself.

Even more sad is the fact, this bike will never reach the shores of America. Able to afford a bike like this or not, you Euro's are lucky bastards. How do you say jealous in just about every language other than English?

Sounds like it's an (expensive) kit. But if it's just a kit you could probably order it and have it shipped.

If I'm reading that correctly it includes a new REAR tank that is 16 liters?


REAR TANK

- 1 silk black rear tank 16 liter

That is a neat approach, although I'm sure it is a spendy piece to gain 3-4L. I'd like to see more pictures of that! Does the 450RR rear tank have the "tunnel" for the muffler like a 690 E/R has or is it symmetrical? If it is symmetrical, I wonder if this kit is just using a 450RR rear tank?

$6200 USD...hmmm... no.

A certain other kit from the UK is a metric crap ton cheaper... :) Then again, it ain't KTM-sourced, either...

Cheaper than buying a 690 RFR ;-)

I like it and will watch as it develops. Maybe some day, I'll have the money to build a really trick thumper. I do want to see more picture from different angles.

I think he was joking. I would like to see how it mounts up to a stock 2012 USA model. Is there a barrier to bringing these to the US?

I hope so ;-) The main image (white background image) of the bike on the Quest product page is a EU 2012 Enduro. Must be the same to the US model.

It's our idea to ship this 690 Quest kit to all countries. I don't see a problem for the US market.

For all sales questions; please contact me by mail: info@ktmbasel.ch I don't want to spam the forum here!
