I am pretty sure that the 690 RR (as in Rally Replica) frames have the same geometry as the 690 E / R / SMC, with a few welded on brackets for the Rally tanks? It's only the factory frames of Coma and Despres that are unique and different from the RR that was available for purchase, and even from each other.

I wouldn't get the RR triples for $$s, you can get 22mm offset from the stock 08-11 ones and bolt on a stabilizer with an adapter (RR has it cast into the upper clamp).

RR does use a longer swingarm though, so the stability will be hard to replicate.
