    Its actually a 2015, but there isn't a option for this year yet. Amazing machine with so much capability.

    I've been riding this exquisite bike since 2015. I came to it from a Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 and a DRZ400S (which I still own as a backup for buddies who want to ride with me, but are "bike-orphaned"). The 690 Enduro is the perfect compromise between the weight benefits of the DRZ and the power of the Tenere. I can't sing the 690's praise enough. It is a blast to cruise down the freeway at a steady 80 mph, or drift through the Santa Monica mountain twisties, or goat-whip it up some gnarly trail at Big Bear or Cleveland national forest. Don't listen to those who say it can't keep up with the heavyweights on long-distance rides. It most certainly can, especially with the right aftermarket seat or - even better - an Airhawk seat pad stretched over the Sweet Cheeks bottle carrier (increases fuel capacity by a couple of liters). The bike's only drawback is that it is not ideal for tight single-tracks which involved sharp, rising switchbacks, due to its relatively ungenerous turning angle. Apart from that, it is a far less stressful bike to take into difficult terrain than the 500 lb adventure machines we love on the freeways. With only 320 lbs to cart around, it is quite nimble. The torque is ridiculously neck-snapping and always induces an insane grin in city riding and on steep, rocky hills. I keep thinking I should get a 240 lb exc, but I'm lazy and useless with tools, so the incredibly low-maintenance schedules keep me on this reliable beast's haunches. The only thing that might get me to trade it in is the forthcoming 790 middleweight from KTM or the T7 under development from Yamaha.  I don't ever see myself going back to a 500 lb+ bike... the bulk and limitations of those behemoths just isn't worth tolerating when you can ride a thoroughbred stallion, drop it a dozen times while riding solo and never worry about picking it up, or having it fall on you in a ditch.

    Superb bike that does everything very well.
    Had this bike for 3 seasons and it was spectacular.
    Also, contrary to expectation, it has been PERFECTLY reliable.
    Perfectly, as in: I had NO issues. Zero. Nada.

    Compared to others in it's class it was the most comfortable for me. I adore the 3 cylinder engine.

    I had a '13 GSA 1200. It was too big for me.
    "Pick a standard 1200, no?"
    No, because I love the rugged bulkyness of the Adventure models.

    So...here's the new toy! A 2013 F800GSA, "sand beige" color, with only 16k KMs, and full optional: Full aluminium panniers set with BMW internal bags for the side panniers, heated grips, ESA, ABS/ASC, on-board computer, 2 riding modes (Road/Enduro), LED foglights, LED blinkers, and maybe even something else.
    Plus, the previous owner installed a couple toys that I would've installed anyway: crash bars for the "tank" (by GIVI), a bigger skidplate (GIVI again), and the expanded sidestand base (no idea who made it).

    After a full day of riding, I can say I'm VERY satisfied. Fuel consumption is ridicolously low, the bike's very comfortable (solo and with pillion), and most importantly, it's FIFTY KILOGRAMS lighter than both my previous GSA1200 and my ex-SuperTenere.

    I've only found 3 things I don't like on this bike:
    1- Sound. Easily fixable with a proper exhaust.
    2- Handguards. They leave half my hand exposed to air/cold.
    3- Windscreen. It's big, but it leaves my head exposed.

    Again, I can easily fix all these "problems".

    Can't wait to ride more! :)

    Still in honeymoon phase. Bike absolutely rips. An entirely new, raw experience compared to the R1200GS, and I'm still modding.

    I can't speak as to comparisons with other XC's but for me the c model just made sense with the WP suspension and special mappings. This thing rails out of the box in a very surprising manner for such a large bike on such silly rubber. Really the only bad point of the bike outside of some of the plastic stuff doesn't impress close up but there are aftermarket alternatives .<br />I've ridden it 300 miles of 70/30 and so far in that hundred miles of off road I felt darned near as in control as I do on my YZ or XR over the same ride excepting slick clay mud from log trucks and grass.which made kitty want to either roll or take a nap due to the tires. Other than that it is as competent over loose terrain as it is tarmac and it represents a serious attempt by Triumph to upgrade an already successful ADV bike to something better.<br/>UPDATE: 09/27/16..... Still feel this is a great effort on Triumph's part. I'm over 16,000 now and can't see that any other bike in it's class would fit me as well. Just needed a couple hundred bucks in aluminum protective and adaptive stuff and a couple of good tires. Been to 4 states so far and looking to add Canada and Mexico soon.

    Definitely a good bike, no doubt.
    Although...
    I have to admit I'm not really the biggest fan of the parallel-twin engine.
    It has power and torque, sure, but I don't like the "curve". It's a tad too linear.
    Another thing I don't like about the S10, it's the...tank. Rather, the size of it. 23liters aren't really a lot, in my opinion, for ADVing or even for simply touring.
    FINALLY (I promise) I feel like the suspension are a tad...lacking. I can't seem to find a proper setting: a couple weeks ago I was touring in Sardinia (Island on the left of Italy), and even with the suspensions stiffened up, the bike was feeling "wobbly".

    Aside from those, I have no other complaints. LOL

    This is the largest bike I have ever owned. Love it. Very capable of long rides then jumping off road.

    It took a little tweaking with the ergonomics and a few other things above and beyond the usual mods to make this bike long distance worthy. But now that it is, I am absolutely in love with it. Practically unlimited yet very manageable power. The suspension and traction control makes this bike surefooted both on and off road, regardless of weather conditions. Lastly, the boner inspiring qualities of this bike go without saying. Between the sound, the power and the looks, it's a damn shame the 20-50 year old single female population doesn't seem to share the same interest and excitement in this bike as their male counterparts apparently do... Just sayin ;)

    Some might say "baby" of the ktm adventure bikes but to be honest it does absolutely everything I want it to. Plenty of trick bits added and it's my go to bike for all day riding. The power is noticeably different to the 1190 but up to 6.5k revs it's put out the same BHP so doesn't bother me at all. Suspension... Yes it has some and that's about it. Might be my next upgrade but undecided at the moment as I don't keep my bikes long. Still happy with this one tho.

    It's my mule, doesn't do any one thing great but it doesn't do anything bad. All it does is make me smile trip after trip, mile after mile. I like it enough I bought an 06 950 S to go with it.
