2016 KTM 690 Enduro R

Well...It seems that the 690 Enduro R will remain unchanged for 2016. Rumours about a twin powered 690 E may well be true, but not for next year.

Traditionally new stuff on the KTM's big single engines first appear on the 690 Duke. Within a year these changes have trickled down to the Enduro and SMC models. For 2016 the Duke will have a new cylinder head and a second balancer shaft. These changes will bring more power and reduce vibrations. IF and thats a big if, the Enduro will remain a single, the 2017 690 Enduro R will most likely feature these upgrades. That said, the twin engine featured in the spy shots will no doubt be mounted on something. Will it be the next generation Enduro R or something else, we will see.
