I am a KTM dealer. That is a 2014 690 Duke we have as a demo unit. I decided to install some things to set it apart and show what can be done to them.

The Arrow sounds like a stock KTM dirt bike with the db killer installed. Its not crazy loud with it out. Those are a combination of Enduro Engineering and Sicass Racing for the hand guards. I had to grind on the EE mounts to clear the brake mc. The plastic guards from Sicass are plug and play. You also need their resister kit so the flasher will work with the led turn signals.

Came very closer to buying one last year. Still high on my wish list. It would be my bike of choice for the roads I'm riding this week in North Carolina.

You're asking a dealer what something he's showing is?
My guess is the answer will be "it's the best".

It's better then a Mivv probably, I've seen a few of those fall apart here on
bigger bikes.

There might be nothing better for the tight stuff on the market right now. I wonder how it feels after 6 hours on the slab though?

Why buy a motorcycle to ride on the slab? Want to travel in a straight line? Take the train.. then you can have a drink to numb the pain.
