Video: KTM 690 Duke longterm update

After 2000 miles with the new KTM 690 Duke, MCN's Liam Marsden gives us a quick update on his year so far. The Duke is spot on for commuting and hammering down twisty country roads, where bigger, more powerful bikes would struggle. If you want a pure, no-nonsense bike, the 690 Duke should be top of your list. brightcove.createExperiences();

learned that it doesn't wear thin. That it's best at back roads and commuting, the two problems he's had and that one of them is worth checking out when you get the bike as it can lead to the bike being immobilised.

I listened and didn't whine and learnt that it's a reasonably reliable bike which suffered from a failure due to a common problem with compact machines. Whatever you did is a mystery. It was a long term update, not a review or anything else. The less there is to say, generally the better.

wire problem?

I would be interested to know more about the wire that wore through its casing and shorted out. I am interested in getting one of these bikes - the first test ride was a blast, but don't need issues on a bike i will ride every day!
