Description

Details

What isn't there doesn't weigh anything either - the 690 SMC R is designed according to this motto. It arrives at the starting line in peak condition with twin plug ignition, ride-by-wire, new ABS and a revamped chassis. Powerful, sports-oriented, yet still very comfortable – what could make a drifter happier? The KTM 690 SMC R: the unrivalled Supermoto for the most demanding requirements, which leaves all others in its wake: suitable for racing or everyday use, potent design, state-of-the-art.

ENGINE

With twin plug ignition and ride-by-wire, the state-of-the-art, water-cooled LC4 single-cylinder on the 690 Enduro R delivers an impressive 49 kW (67 hp) from 690 cc of displacement. It combines powerful acceleration from the very lowest revs with an outstanding free-revving nature and refined engine running. It's extremely economical with fuel and saves its owner even more money thanks to long service intervals of 10,000 km. Annoying rear wheel chatter? Prevented reliably by its slipper clutch that's fitted as standard. A twin plug ignition system now controls two differently sized spark plugs in each cylinder head independently of each other in such a way that more efficient combustion and a smoother, optimally controlled combustion sequence are achieved at all times. The result: even more and even better controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and less emissions.

INJECTION / ENGINE MANAGEMENT / RIDE-BY-WIRE

The guarantee for smooth throttle response, not just no throttle control cable: The 690 Enduro R is equipped with a cable-free ride-by-wire system for opening the throttle valve. This significantly improves the power delivery, making the potent single-cylinder's throttle response and ride quality even smoother. It also electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into throttle valve positions perfectly suited to the riding conditions. As before the rider has the choice between three different mappings for influencing the engine characteristics.

 

BALANCER SHAFT

The finely balanced crank drive of the 690 single-cylinder converts terrific combustion pressure into unrivalled single-power - thanks to its balancer shaft, which eliminates vibration without having any detrimental effect on the super-single.

As before the rider has the choice between three different mappings for influencing the engine characteristics.

SUSPENSION COMPONENTS

By professionals for everyone: The KTM 690 SMC R's WP upside-down fork, with a whole 250 mm of suspension travel and 48 mm outer tubes, is adjustable in many ways and masters the balancing act between everyday use and attack with the greatest of ease. It is designed as a split fork with separate damping circuits (compression damping on the left fork tube, rebound damping on the right) that can be adjusted independently of each other. This means that they cannot interact as they do in conventional open bleed systems - thus guaranteeing even sportier, more purposeful and rider-optimised ride characteristics. The pivot-arm articulated WP pressurised-gas monoshock with 250 mm of travel even features high-speed and low-speed compression adjustment.

 

BRAKES

The 690 SMC R's extremely powerful and easily applied Brembo® brakes impress with outstanding controllability. On the front wheel, a radially-mounted, four-piston, fixed brake calliper bites onto a floating 320 mm brake disc.

ABS

The 690 SMC R enters the fray with Bosch 9M+ABS - highly effective, disengageable and optionally with Supermoto ABS (PowerParts dongle) for real Supermoto drifting: Freely lockable rear wheel with a sharp ABS function up front.

 

FRAME AND SWINGARM

The 690 SMC R ranks among the most powerful curve-bandits on the road. Alongside the outstandingly tuned suspension, two major contributors to its excellent tracking stability are the lightweight tubular space frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel and the high-quality die-cast swingarm - both of them extremely torsion-resistant.

 

WHEELS (PATENTED, TUBELESS, SPOKED WHEELS)

Thanks to specially designed, air-tight rim profiles on tubeless, wire-spoked wheels, KTM 690 SMC R rolls on Conti AttackSM tubeless tyres. The lightweight wheels reduce unsprung masses and gyroscopic forces, making the suspension even more effective and the steering even lighter. They also increase the grip of what are already the best Supermoto tyres on the market.

ERGONOMICS

The self-supporting rear end/fuel tank unit made from robust plastic bears an equally comfortable and low seat. This is augmented by the tank fairings and the ideally angled, wide aluminium handlebar to form a perfect arrangement that makes controlling the 690 SMC R extremely simple - both on the road and on the track. Superb handling, remarkable versatility, perfect vehicle control both on the road and on the track, plus excellent contact points and maximum freedom of movement for hitting the gas with commitment – 690 SMC R.

A2-COMPLIANCY

Due to ambiguous or even incorrect press reports, confusion currently prevails in the KTM community throughout the EU regarding the A2-compliancy of the following models:

• 390 Duke

• 690 Duke

• 690 Duke R

• 690 SMC R

• 690 Enduro R

The corresponding press reports convey the impression that the mentioned models are too light and hence not approved for A2 beginners. This impression is inconsistent with the truth. The A2 driving licence prescribes a minimum power-to-weight ratio of 0.2 kW/kg, which is why KTM has homologated performance mappings for all the aforementioned models to make them A2-compliant. Thanks to the mappings, all the listed models achieve the minimum power-to-weight ratio precisely – quite the contrary to most of the overweight competition. Assisted by the mappings, every A2 beginner can benefit from the dynamic advantage of the models being so light – whether it be due to increased riding pleasure when accelerating, when riding demanding trails or due to the much more significant safety factor when braking, in general vehicle control or when evading sudden hazards. The models are therefore not only A2-compliant, but also highly recommendable for novice riders, since they guarantee greater riding pleasure yet even more safety.
