A Trustworthy Daily Ride VS Tackling the Steepest Climb

Making the impassable possible, the KTM 690 ENDURO R unites tarmac and trails like never before. The latest KTM LC4 single-cylinder has two balancer shafts for reduced vibrations, ride by wire to allow changeable ride modes and traction control. More than enough power to pull you clear of the steepest climbs yet efficient and manageable for trails and daily use. Sharper and slimmer, the new bodywork with a redesigned seat, enhances aesthetics and improves ergonomics. Underneath, a lightweight and agile chassis coupled with fully-adjustable WP XPLOR suspension provides a competent package for experienced riders yet confidence-inspiring for those new to dirt. Better still, the KTM 690 ENDURO R remains sure-footed for street riding, increasing its versatility as a trust-worthy daily ride.

The Engine

This powerful single-cylinder engine is smoother and more sophisticated than ever. Efficient engineering excellence, the latest compact LC4 is a totally modern interpretation of a big single-cylinder engine. Two balancer shafts aligned to a dual-spark cylinder head and ride by wire technology leave only good vibrations. The 690cc engine now punches 74 hp and 73.5 Nm of torque; with an incredibly wide delivery of performance and now boasts a Quickshifter+ for further refinement. Electronic rider aids feature heavily on both bikes, with the addition of ride mode technology and lean angle sensitive ABS and traction control systems to get the most from these potent packages in all situations.


The new electronic systems on the KTM 690 ENDURO R get the most from this dynamic machine in all situations. Two ride modes – Offroad and Street – produce different characteristics of the throttle response and motorcycle traction control (MTC), while cornering sensitivity for the ABS and traction control also make its debut on this bike.
