id say closer to about 1bhp. they only put out 15bhp as standard. and being a four stroke they dont lend themselves to derestricting like the old two strokes did.hi, I expect by its self, not a lot but perhaps altering air box and a map then a bit more ?2-8 bhp, i'm sure others will know more, enjoy it, they look good, i imagine the cost will be a limiting factor?
Dont worry bout Restitution, we are still waiting for a boffen to de-restrictPity KTM don't employ some Finnish development engineers. They could have taken the 690 smc into a sauna and learned very quickly how the electtronics and clocks cannot withstand a bit of humidity and temperature changes. Then when the 690 smc failed the sauna test, they could have taken turns at flogging it with birch branches (Basil Fawlty style) before dumping the remains in any of over 1,000 ice cold Finnish lakes.
p.s. I like Finland and my opinion of Austrian engineering is accelerating downhill
Well if Resti does get rid I'll give him scrap value - seems that's all it's worth judging by the slagging off it gets??resti, time to change the record mate.
ive always enjoyed your take on things and your dry wit.
but banging on about your 690 is getting a bit old now. get rid. please..........
I imagine once the bike realises its out of Resti ownership it will turn over a new leaf and become the most well behaved KTM ever!Well if Resti does get rid I'll give him scrap value - seems that's all it's worth judging by the slagging off it gets??
If it's fixed now then maybe offer trade value - less handling?
