ACE OF ALL SURFACES
Ride from home and feel the adrenaline build while chasing tarmac curves towards your favourite offroad location. No trailer required just twist the throttle of the all-new KTM 690 ENDURO R, which really comes into its own when the dirt begins and the trail gets more extreme. Its new chassis, revised styling, and an updated version of the trusted 690 LC4 motor, are enhanced by upgraded electronics and new WP XPLOR suspension. Master more challenging terrain on this lightweight, high-performance king of versatility.
The latest 690 LC4 engine is all about smooth, powerful performance to propel you effortlessly up, down, through, around and over the many types of terrain that you may encounter on this bike. Every aspect of the LC4 engine design is constructed to provide a consistent and confidence-inspiring riding experience.
Two ride modes: ‘Street mode’ for sporty throttle response where wheel slip and wheelies are kept to a minimum for optimal street performance. ‘Offroad mode’, by contrast, produces smooth throttle response with Offroad Traction Control, which allows wheel slip and front wheel lifting without hindering performance. The modes are easily switched over from the handlebar, making adjustment to the character of the engine possible on the fly. Traction control can be disabled if needed.
Lean-angle sensors keeps track of the angle of the bike and send information to the ECU and relevant control units, which use this data to adjust traction control and ABS actuation.
The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) lean-angle sensitive traction control system reacts immediately the instant the rear wheel rotation speed becomes disproportionate to the riding situation. In mere milliseconds MTC reduces engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves, until slippage is reduced to optimum proportions for the selected ride mode and current angle of lean. For particularly ambitious riders, the traction control can also be switched off.
