Longer travel suspension, a minimalist headlight and fairing, a more aggressive front fender, Pirelli MT 21s, cleaner clocks and revised graphics all combine to make the 2009 KTM 690 Enduro R even more competitive than its non-R sibling. KTM bill the 690 Enduro as the “ultimate all-rounder,” equally capable of tackling highways or trails. We expect the R to sacrifice some of that on-road ability in the name of off-road performance. No official price or specs yet, but the R will share the 654cc, 62bhp single-cylinder with several other bikes in the KTM range and should share the 690 Enduro’s no-fuel 139kg weight. Compare the two visually after the jump.
