I've had my Xch for a while now, and my father always raved about the 650X series but wasn't really interested in them. Fast forward 4 years and I finally convinced...

If there was ever a 650 single made for the street, it was definitely the 690.

One of the biggest reasons it didn't sell was the airshock. People just aren't used to it.

After using it for a while it feels fine, other than that I can't think of a single complaint!
