Just like we did with the Husqvarna 701 Nomad kit, we wanted the KTM 690 kit to look and feel like a KTM should. We also wanted nothing but top quality materials and workmanship in order to achieve the level of quality we were after. We do all our machining in-house, apart from the laser cutting, to get the level of quality we want. This is not a middle of the road adv kit but a top spec, road legal and long range travel bike, and unlike others comes at a reasonably price. We use the KTM 450RR Rally screen which has been tested in the Dakar at speeds of 170 km/hr(!) and has proven to work.
Heated grips, heated vests and being able to charge a multitude of digital gizmos is no longer just a luxury, so we accommodated for it. It's also one of the reasons why we use LED headlights (which are E-marked for road use), to reduce the power drawn from the charging system, which means you have more available for accessories. We didn't go the easy way and fit the dinky little ones used elsewhere (most of which aren't E-marked) but opted for the brilliant Vision-X Halo 90 mm units. Yes they are more expensive but they give a serious amount of light and have the option to change the type of beam by simply changing the cover. We made each headlight individually adjustable in all directions. Vision-X claims a usable light of up to 260 mtr in spotlight form. Even if you fit 4 of them, say two flood lights, one dipped beam and a spot, and switch them all on at the same time, you're still below what the single original H4 unit uses in terms of power. The light kit we have comes complete with protective covers, which have a silicone seal to prevent dust between cover and light.
Plenty of electrical options
Our adventure tower has room for up to 12 USB charging points or up to 6 standard 12V connectors or any combination thereof. We've also incorporated 6 options for RAM-mounts as they are in our opinion the best and most versatile way to mount items like a GPS, satellite tracker, Go-Pro etc. On the dash you'll find the original digital speedo, which is now also easily readable when you are standing on the pegs. Apart from a change in the headlight cable (as we use two headlights instead of one) there is no change in the KTM wiring at all. All connectors can be re-used. You'll also find the option of 4 extra switches above in the dash panel which can be used for spotlights, heated vests and/or grips plus whatever else you want to fit. We use sturdy European made switches which can handle up to 15 Amps, no need for an extra relay. 15 Amps is more than ample for just about anything but a 12V kettle...
Made for riders
We've made everything for the KTM 690 Enduro from a travelling point of view. The rear luggage plate for example is not a small tiny one but properly sized to allow throwing on a duffle bag. We've also positioned it further forward, which means the bag will be over the fuel filler cap, but using the excellent ROK-straps that means only two clicks (and two seconds) to access it.
