Welcome. You’ll grow to love the T7 and will like having another piston.

Cześć 🙂


Hi,  great choice.

How do you find T7 comparing to 690 (which I am going to have one day) ?

And give us some pics.  Doesn't count without pics 🙂

690 is far far much lighter, more nimble and lower (for smaller people)

suspension for hard crosses is better in ktm

in my opinion the engine in ktm is not so flexible (shakes <3000rmp) but more powerful - wheelies in 3rd gear w/o clutch. 

690 is one person bike. however i made with girl 1500km trip to Lithuania 🙂

T7 is great for two person (would be even better when spring is changed)

I hope that reliability is uncomparable:

with 690:

- faulty injector

- more ofte  valve clearance maintenance

- problems wit rear tank mounting points

- fuel filter with debris from pump

Thank you for the answer. I am a bit surprised about flexibility of 690's engine.

Didn't expect this, but I still like this bike. 🙂
