Re: Ktm 690 supermoto

No experience with one but just showed it to my wife and told her that I wish I had one a couple days ago. I could never live with it as my only bike because I have to have a track capable sportbike and bike number two will be a VFR or something similar with luggage, so if I could have three bikes the KTM would be next on my list.

I love my KTM, I think no matter what happens in my life the old KTM520 I own will always have a place!

I think a better option rather than the supermoto is the KTM 690 Duke, price is the only problem as there seems to be a premium built into Orange.

my local dealer had a black and white 690 duke and i checked it out on saturday. I thought it was sweet as hell but for about 2000 difference i did not see it. They did not have a SM so i have to go to Kansas City to check it out. They also have a demo( what a concept) they quoted me 7850otd..dont know if this is a good price or not.they have an orange one and black.

Yeah I'm just not a fan of the pipe setup on the supermoto, and the "beak" at the front does not look right. If you can get a ride then take one, it would be nice to get some feedback.
