Got my new KTM 690 Duke yesterday. It stopped raining long enough to put 15 miles on it today. So far i'm really liking it. It's a perfect bike for riding around town and threw the twisty mountain roads around here. I am gonna make some gopro video's with the new bike soon. Here is some i-phone pic.'s i took of it yesterday after i got it home.

I agree, it is wild looking. I am gonna order a fender eliminator kit for it and a new seat. That seat made my arse hurt after only 15 miles! :lol:

It's definitely not for everyone. I just wanted something different to cruise around town on. It handles really good and gets good gas mileage. It's not a bike for long trips.

Just looking at that being a 690cc it looks really light weight. So I had to look up the specs. And at 327lbs. and putting out over 64hp, I'll bet my 1st impression was right, that thing will most likely flat out fly!

Red-N-BlackXX,
What an amazing looking bike! It has that Stealth look. No doubt the police radars will think it is just a fast flying bird. :lol:
Thanks for the pictures.

Well, that's different looking... Nice Bike! I'm sure it's quick with the power to weight, KTM makes some wicked machines. Is that a single cylinder?

That was my first impression. Hayden, looks good. I know it isn't really feasible, but it looks like it'd be one hell of a supermoto bike. I sat on one up in CT where the KTM shop was right across the street. There's wasn't 7900 though, think it was 9k. They had a sick 1000cc bike there that was #1 of 25 made, don't know how they got it, but they were asking 24k for it. They also had a lot of Aprilia stuff, and some of their bikes looked sick. Keep the rubber down on it for sure bud. BTW, only 64hP? Come on haha, jk.

Thanks! Yes it is a 654cc single w/ 11.8:1 compression ratio.

It basically is a supermoto bike. It's almost the same bike as the 690 smc. It just lacks the ground cleaance and suspension travel of a true supermotard. Has alot of dirtbike feature's and feel. It has a shorter seat height. So it's better for me cause im not 9 foot tall like you Chucky! :lol: The sticker was $10,599 so i think i got a pretty good deal on it. 64HP is plenty for a bike this size. It feels like a really powerful dirtbike. lofting the front tire is no problem. Plus it gets good gas mileage and is really fun to raise hell on!
