STREET SLAYER

The KTM 690 SMC R raises the bar for street hooligans. The revised chassis and styling are boosted by the latest 690 LC4 motor and an updated electronics package, so whether you express your tarmac-sliding talent on mountain roads or on the track, you'll be drifting into the future with a maxed-out grin and your veins coursing with adrenaline. Handling is enhanced by the latest fully-adjustable WP APEX suspension, so all you have to worry about is focusing on the road ahead and twisting the throttle to the stoppers.
ENGINE

ENGINE

The LC4 690 cc single-cylinder engine combines powerful acceleration from the very lowest revs with an outstanding free-revving nature and refined engine running. Another big plus is besides the engine being extremely economical with fuel it also has long service intervals of 10,000 km, keeping running costs low.

CYLINDER HEAD

CYLINDER HEAD

A lightweight, compact cylinder head contains four valves and a single camshaft placed over the intake valves, and 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.

RESONATOR CHAMBER

RESONATOR CHAMBER

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

BALANCER SHAFT

BALANCER SHAFT

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

PISTON

PISTON

The lightweight and durable forged piston is designed to reduce reciprocating mass, and therefore improve engine response.

CONRODS

CONRODS

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.

PASC CLUTCH

PASC CLUTCH

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

GEARBOX

GEARBOX

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

RIDE-BY-WIRE

RIDE-BY-WIRE

The 690 ENDURO R is equipped a 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.

AIRBOX

AIRBOX

Accessing the airfilter for maintenance is easy thanks to the airbox being located under the seat. This makes servicing the bike simple, and strees free, at the end of a long day's ride.

EXHAUST

EXHAUST

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.

FRAME

FRAME

The 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.

SUBFRAME

SUBFRAME

Tried and trusted - the effective use of the rear fuel tank as the main structural element of the subframe, keeps weight low and eliminates design complexity.

SWINGARM

SWINGARM

This 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.

TRIPLE CLAMP

TRIPLE CLAMP

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.

FRONT FORK

FRONT FORK

Maximum Super Moto control is enhanced by the WP APEX 48 upside-down fork. The split fork design developed by WP and KTM has been adapted for the 690 SMC R. It is fitted with springs on both sides with separate damping functions - compression is on the left and rebound on the right-hand side. The cool thing is they have no negative influence on each other. So damping can easily be adjusted via the dials on top of both fork tubes, each with 30 clicks of adjustment.

REAR SHOCK

REAR SHOCK

Complementing the front fork is the WP APEX shock absorber that 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.

WHEELS & TYRES

WHEELS & TYRES

The KTM wheels use lightweight, CNC machined hubs and high-end black 17" rims to combine maximum strength with minimum weight. They are fitted with Bridgestone S21 tyres for maximum performance on the street, and plenty of grip for racetrack usage.

BRAKES

BRAKES

Sublime class-leading BREMBO brakes combined with lightweight wave discs - 320 mm diameter front and 240 mm on the rear wheel - provide a crucial combination of stopping power and a consistent brake feel.

FUEL TANK

FUEL TANK

The completely redesigned larger fuel tank now has a capacity of 13.5 litres. It also acts as a load-bearing part of the chassis, making it stiffer for a more optimal feel.

HANDLEBAR

HANDLEBAR

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

FOOTPEGS

FOOTPEGS

The slim profile needed for maximum lean angle is helped by short footrests, while a removable rubber insert ensures comfort with street boots.

SEAT

SEAT

The 690 SMC R's seat height is 890mm for ease of access without sacrificing lean angle, while the seat material is finely grained for grip with leather suits.

RIDE MODES

RIDE MODES

There are two ride modes: 'Street' mode gives a sporty throttle response where cornering-sensitive MTC limits wheel slip and keeps wheelies to a minimum for optimal street riding performance, while 'Sport' mode provides more aggressive throttle response with reduced traction control (without cornering sensitivity) to allow drifts and full control of the slide, aimed at track or very sporty street usage. The modes can be easily switched over from the handlebar, making adjustment on the fly possible.

SUPERMOTO-ABS-MODUS

SUPERMOTO-ABS-MODUS

Supermoto ABS allows rear wheel lockup and reduced ABS on the front wheel for the hooligans who like to have more control over the motorcycle when pushing the limit through turns.

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

MTC (MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL)

The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) lean-angle sensitive traction control system reacts immediately the instant the rear wheel rotation speed becomes disproportionate to the riding situation. In mere milliseconds MTC reduces engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves, until slippage is reduced to optimum proportions for the selected ride mode and current angle of lean. For particularly ambitious riders, the traction control can also be switched off.

QUICKSHIFTER +

QUICKSHIFTER +

Quickshifter+ uses two sensors, where one sensor on the shift arm detects the movement on the shift lever rod when the rider upshifts and the system cuts the injection instantaneously. As soon as the second sensor detects the gear engagement it reapplies the injection and opens the butterfly valve, ensuring fast and smooth action at all throttle openings and engine speeds. When downshifting, the system matches the engine speed to the speed of the lower gear.

CORNERING ABS

CORNERING ABS

KTM's Cornering ABS mode allows riders to always use the full power of their brakes in all conditions, while taking the lean angle of the motorcycle into account. In Supermoto ABS mode, the ABS only acts upon the front wheel, while cornering-sensitivity is disabled. In extreme scenarios, the rider can also choose to disable the ABS completely.
