Faster, more abusable, sucks up terrain, etc...
Just totally curious, not suggesting anything.
I think so?
I haven't got to ride the 690 much because of snow. Looking at the stats I think it will be. Compared to the XR650L I was riding the 690 should have more poop, much better suspenders and it weighs less.
