Bundy & Coke pls.. Cheers.

Fun to commute, even more fun on weekends. The only thing not fun is highways. Performance is only different... Not less. Big singles pack a good whack of torque which is available much earlier in the rev range than a similar sized I4 sports bike. So you don't need to wring its neck to get the horsepower out of it. The power delivery works well with the upright seating and wide bars. I'd get the SMC and skip the offroad personally.

Reliable? Mmmmm - ask the dealer if this version of the 690 has 'special' clocks that can cope with UK weather? As for commuting on enduro tyres - are you completely bonkers or very rich and completely bonkers?

Sorry mate but you've failed the right attitude to be a KTM owner test, try joining the MCN forum and buying a honda

Did we say something wrong?

Probably aged 42 and lives at home with his mum. Not exactly a great display of social skills or an ability to josh.

Guess asking for my Babycham is out the window then?
Pretty sure the same answers will be given on the other forums - oh wait I see Duffster has left the building. Sports bike riders = no staying power!
Man up or you don't deserve a KTM.

Someones got sand in his undies for sure. Imagine what will happen if he does buy a KTM. That grin were all stuck with could cause serious facial damage.
