The engine combines powerful acceleration from the very lowest revs with an outstanding free-revving nature and refined engine running. Another big plus: It’s extremely economical with fuel.


Annoying rear wheel chatter? This is prevented by the slipper clutch that’s fitted as standard.


The KTM 690 ENDURO R is equipped with ride-by-wire system, which processes throttle twist grip movements with the help of electronic sensors and activates the throttle valves to control throttle action. This significantly improves the response, giving the rider better throttle control of the potent single-cylinder and a smoother ride.

Resonator Chamber

A resonator chamber balances out pulses in the intake tract and makes the throttle response smoother with reduced vibrations.


The lightweight and durable forged piston is designed to reduce reciprocating mass which improves engine response.


The PASC (Power Assist Clutch) ensures the rider needs minimal input to operate it, due to reduced engine torque transferring to the clutch plates. The slipper clutch prevents rear wheel lock-up under aggressive downshifting, which reduces destabilizing rear wheel chatter on the tarmac when braking sharply or decelerating into turns.


Besides its fuel efficiency the KTM 690 ENDURO R saves its owner even more money, thanks to long service intervals of 10,000 km.


Electronic fuel injection and engine management allow performance perfectly suited to the riding conditions. The result: even more and even better controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and less emissions, plus the benefit of features like MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control), MSR (Motor slip regulation), and Quickshifter+. The rider has the choice between two different mappings to […]


The smooth 6-speed gearbox with Quickshifter+ allows quicker clutchless up and downshifts when you’re in the thick of the action. This not only enables the rider to be in more control of the motorcycle by keeping a full grip of the handlebars, but also improves rear wheel traction.


The exhaust system is made using high-quality stainless steel. It’s routed as close as possible to the bike to help with the slim profile, and the exhaust shape has been optimized for hard offroad usage. For 2021, the KTM 690 ENDURO R has some additional hardware, this comes in the form of a new specification […]


A lightweight, compact cylinder head contains four valves and a single camshaft placed over the intake valves, with a secondary balancer shaft driven by the timing chain. The intake valves are actuated by finger followers and the exhaust valves by a rocker arm.


Plain bearings are used in the conrod to ensure a reduced reciprocating mass, which helps the engine run smoother and therefore enhances its lively character.


Twin balancer shafts, one in front of the crankshaft and the other in the cylinder head, reduce vibration for a smoother ride.


Accessing the airfilter during a ride is easy thanks to the airbox being located under the seat. This makes servicing the bike simple, and stress free, when you’re off the beaten track.



The trellis frame is manufactured from lightweight sections of top-quality chrome-molybdenum steel tubing of varying thicknesses. This type of balanced frame design provides high torsional rigidity for best handling and rideability, while a more specifically-tuned longitudinal flexibility can absorb the wheel impact energy, supporting the suspension for reduced rider fatigue.


The KTM wheels use lightweight, CNC-machined hubs and high-end 21″ and 18″ rims to combine maximum strength with minimum weight. The rims are wrapped with MITAS E07 tires – offering excellent grip and great lifespan.The WP XPLOR shock absorber is connected to the swingarm by a linkage. This ensures a progressive suspension character and a […]


Highly rigid forged triple clamps with an offset of 24 mm (adjustable to 22 mm), provide a solid grip on the forks for precise handling. They allow forwards and backwards adjustment of the handlebars in four different positions for optimum rider ergonomics.


The swingarm design allows for an optimal mounting position of the rear shock ensuring a high progression rate. The single-component casting process eliminates any inconsistencies and weak points that would be inherent in a welded swingarm.


The innovative use of the rear fuel tank as the main structural element of the subframe, keeps weight low and eliminates design complexity..


The WP XPLOR shock absorber is connected to the swingarm by a linkage. This ensures a progressive suspension character and a high resistance to bottoming out. Fully adjustable, including high and low-speed compression, you can set up the shock absorber to any circumstances and rider preference.


The large fuel tank has a capacity of 13.5 liters. It is also a load bearing part of the chassis, making it stiffer for optimal feeling and control.


Riding over rough terrain is made easier with the WP XPLOR 48 upside-down fork. The KTM 690 ENDURO R’s split fork design was originally developed by WP and KTM for the EXC models. It is fitted with springs on both sides with separate damping functions – compression on the left and rebound on the right-hand […]


Sublime class-leading BREMBO brakes combined with lightweight wave discs – 300 mm diameter front and 240 mm on the rear wheel – to provide a crucial combination of stopping power and a consistent brake feel.

The lightweight tapered 808 mm wide handlebars are rubber mounted to reduce vibrations. Their width and shape are aimed at providing maximum control in all situations.


The KTM 690 ENDURO R’s seat height is 910 mm for ease of access without sacrificing ground clearance, while the seat material is developed for offroad usage, and is slightly textured to guarantee optimum wet and dry grip.


Sophisticated “No Dirt” foot pegs prevent jamming up of the pegs, even when digging your way through deep ruts or navigating wet terrain. Rubber inserts can be mounted for street use to help reduce any vibration that might be felt through the pegs on smooth roads.

Ignition keys are old news. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR has a “keyless” transponder. No more forgetting your key in your pocket after you’ve put your gloves on. All you need is to have the key in close proximity to your bike, and you can start up, and hit the road.

led indicators

It’s never been easier to make your intentions known as with the all-new LED indicators fitted to the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR. The trailight is integrated in these ultra-bright flashers give ample warning to traffic, while looking super cool in the process.


Auto-cancelling turn signals are a big improvement in terms of safety, as it is now impossible to forget that they are activated and flashing into infinitum. Indicators stop flashing after 10 seconds and in 150 meters.


As its name implies, the TPMS monitors tire pressure and warns riders of potential tire damage in the event of pressure loss on the TFT display. An added convenience when you want to spend more time on the road and less time checking air pressures.

cruise control

While it may be a track slaying BEAST, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is still at home on any mountain pass or motorway. Easily activated and controlled by a switch on the left hand side of the handlebar, riders can set cruise control in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear, between 40 km/h and […]

supermoto abs

Three things happen when riders select “Supermoto ABS”. First, all ABS functionality is disabled on the rear wheel, allowing the riders to lock up the brakes and slide into corners. Secondly, the ABS system does not interfere in the event of the rear wheel lifting off the tarmac, allowing for stoppies. And thirdly, cornering ABS […]


The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR is equipped with MSR (Motor Slip Regulation) and it works in the opposite direction of the Cornering MTC. Let’s explain – If due to shifting down or abrupt off-throttle deceleration, the engine drag torque is too high, the ride-by-wire system balances the throttle exactly as much as is needed […]


Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control, or Cornering MTC for short, uses two different controllers to keep things in check. The most obvious of which is a wheelslip controller which regulates the amount of spin or break in traction at the rear wheel. A pitch angle controller identifies and regulates abrupt changes in front wheel lift. Each […]
