KTM 690 Enduro R gets ABS

Off-roader gets Bosch stopping treatment

KTM'S 690 Enduro R gets upgrades including ABS for 2014.

The biggest model in KTM's enduro range gets a Bosch ABS unit which can be switched off for off-road use.

There's also an optional off-road ABS mode, allowing a 'freely lockable rear wheel with a sharp ABS function up front' but it requires plugging in an additional KTM dongle, with the price to be announced. 

A similar dongle for the KTM 1190 Adventure costs £73.

The Enduro R's Bosch ABS unit is the size of a tennis ball and weighs 0.7kg.

The Enduro R also gets a cable-free ride-by-wire system for opening the throttle valve and twin spark-plug ignition, which KTM says gives 'better controlled power, lower fuel consumption, and less emissions'.

The 2014 model also comes with new graphics.
