I just stumbled upon this on KTM's website: http://www.ktmusa.com/690-Enduro.68.20.html?&detailview=1&cHash=3ecc6f5f80 After checking out the specs, it still doesn't stack up against the XR650R. The KTM 690's listed dry weight is 28lbs heavier, it has about 2 inches less suspension travel 0.2" less ground clearance. Can someone remind me again what is so dated about the 650R? There is no other 600cc plus machine out their that can match the 650R's specs that I know of except the Husaberg FE650 (240 lbs). I'd still rather have the Honda 650R on my long adventures over a Husaberg (or KTM) any day.
