KTM LC4 690 officially launched


The 2007 KTM LC4 690 Supermoto: Very cool!

KTM have officially launched their new LC4 690 engine – the largest single-cylinder engine the Austrian company has ever made. The fuel-injected 690 single (actually only 654cc) makes about 65 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. This engine is expected to be used in multiple bikes, including supermoto and off-road rally rep machines. The KTM 690 SuperMoto is expected to be launched at the INTERMOT in Germany, in October this year. However, what I’d really like to see from KTM is a 690-powered supersport machine – something on the lines of the Triumph 675. Now that should really be something…!

Who says bikes with single-cylinder engines are no fun to ride?
