    I couldn't ask for a better bike. It's capable of doing things far beyond my skill level.

    I've just bought this bike and the Pesky Canadian winter won't let me ride it so review to follow.

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

    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.

    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.

    I have to add a full review to add the bike to my garage? Yeah, I'll come back to this. Theme will be: never buy the first year of any model.

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

    I've been riding for for about 28 years on many different genres of bikes - from dirt, to cruiser, to crotch rocket. I have to say, this bike is by far the best I have had the pleasure of owning and riding. It's versatility, quality, and capability coupled with it's reasonable price point make it a win win!

    Great ride. Had a 2012 road that I started with and upgraded when I found a deal on a used XC. Larger front wheel and better suspension were huge. That said, the the stock suspension sucks for someone bigger than average. With some upgrades it has been a great dual sport and tourer.

    Great bike. Suspension needs some work. I also plan to add larger tanks for travel.

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

    Disclaimer: This is my first motorcycle, i.e. I don't know what I don't know about what's good bad and ugly about motorcycles. Ahh, ignorance is bliss ...<br /><br />IMO this bike was very easy to ride from day one and I can't imagine a better starting bike for me (YMMV -- I'm six feet tall and 200 lbs). I don't consider myself to be a natural at anything so the ease with which I took to riding this bike says more about the forgiving nature of the bike than the rider.<br /><br />The 650 v-twin seems smooth and has always delivered the power I've needed whether on the highway or my limited dirt experience and when loaded with camping gear.<br /><br />Once offroad or taking my daughters two-up on the bike I definitely notice the stock factory suspension is being pushed. I hope to remedy this in the near future.<br /><br />All in all, based on my limited riding experience and current needs, I'm very pleased with this bike. It's price point allows me to add and upgrade only what I want to add or upgrade.<br /><br />Farkles: Barkbusters Storm handguards, Givi 52L Trekker Case, OEM side cases, OEM center stand, Weld86 skid plate <br /><br />

    Absolutely love this bike! The miles are adding up and its starting to show its age but boy has this bike taken me places. I would only consider the 1190R if I were to replace it.

    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 ;)

    Improved in all areas of performance and handling ..... Except - the combination of the lighter flywheel/crankshaft and wet clutch is going to take a looooong time to get used to.
