    Have decided my next bike will be a KTM 690, only haven't heard anything on the 14's. I'm new here and apologize if this topic has been brought up before. Have an opportunity at a new 13, and wonder if I should pull the trigger or wait for the 14? Is KTM committed to this bike going forward or is it going to get pulled on the US market?

    I doubt it'll be pulled, and I doubt there'll be any changes between '13 and '14. I'd get the 13 if the price is right.

    Very interesting report, I'll start saving up for the '14 690 E, what a bike.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I think its a shame that they are using more and more electronics,

    I love ADV, but finding specific info on the 690 buried in the 1000+ page mega thread is frustrating. Take a look at 690EnduroForum
