The 2023 KTM 690 ENDURO R and SMC R will be available from February 2023.
2023 KTM 690 ENDURO R and KTM 690 SMC R | LC4 RANGE
The KTM LC4 has morphed from a 553 cc race-spec engine in 1987 to the fully-fledged 693 cc machine it is today.
KTM 690 ENDURO R dual sport machine receives a few updates for 2023 for tackling hard enduro-type terrain, and easy, fast-flowing trails.
The supermoto KTM 690 SMC R is built to be thrashed around twisty mountain roads and tear around race tracks.
For 2023, both the KTM 690 ENDURO R and KTM 690 SMC R sport a simple but effective LCD screen providing riders with information like speed, RPM, and an array of essential warning lights.
Likewise, both LC4 machines benefit from Cornering ABS, which allows riders to use full braking power in all conditions, even at big lean angles. This is supported by Offroad ABS on the KTM 690 ENDURO R which reduces ABS efficiency on the front wheel but completely disables ABS on the rear, allowing riders to lock up the rear into a tight turn.
Supermoto ABS replaces this feature on the KTM 690 SMC R. When activated, ABS is also reduced on the front wheel and completely disabled on the rear, allowing for big drifts into corners and tire-smoking powerslides out of the apex.
Both machines also receive enhanced CTG and seat treatment, with the KTM 690 ENDURO R taking its styling cues from the competition Enduro range.
The 2023 KTM 690 ENDURO R and 2023 KTM 690 SMC R will be available at authorised KTM dealerships from February 2023 in Australia and New Zealand.
