I have to agree that the 690 is a great bike, although not ideal for highway droning. I am very interested in the news that KTM is working on some smaller v-twins. I am sure one of those might end up...

I had a 2009 with an Akra slipon. Yes I remapped it a number of times and it was fine. I think they get remapped a lot because you can use TuneECU to do it so people tend to tinker. But the newer...
