    On a RTW ride - currently touring the U.S.
    No easy answer on that one because there isn't enough long term experience yet and it depends on how you ride and maintain it.

    I'd say if you baby it and you are lucky, 50k.

    If you flog it, maybe 30k?

    KTM puts the 690 in their street line and they don't come out until late winter to early spring. That's another reason you don't see them everywhere, not many dealers handle the street line. We got three 2012 models, they're gone now but it took a while to move them. I've ridden a few, nice bikes but it is a lot of money for a bike most people really don't ride that much.

    You have to search around, as there are still a few new 2012's for sale here in the midwest. Just a month ago, I got my 2012 new for $9,500 + Taxes from a KTM dealer in SW Ohio. Had to travel 350 miles one-way to get it.

    I just got notice that there may be another one for sale here in Michigan, the dealer said they found an overlooked crate.

    If anyone wants a lead on it, let me know.
