A video on the RSD KTM Tracker which is featured in the latest Sideburn mag, alongside some thoughts on the bike by yours truly.
Roland Sands Design – “There’s something about the 690 KTM that makes you want to do bad things. It’s a great street able single that’s got enough torque to put a smile on your face while tame enough to inspire confidence when pushing towards the edge. While our newest version of the 690 is a street bike, it’s got a whole lotta dirt under it’s nails. We let the stock frame inspire new lightweight airfoil tubing swingarm and subframe. The sheet metal is all hand formed aluminum and draws from traditional dirt track machines while bringing a little motocross influence into the mix. Our newest lightweight Contrast Ops Del Mar wheels are shod in Goodyear Flat track rubber and are stopped by PM brakes front and rear. One Off Hand built exhaust breathes through our Slant exhaust tip. The devil is in the details. Here you can see the small things that really set a bike apart, such as: shortened shock reservoir by Race Tech, Raptor titanium foot pegs and billet aluminum brake pedal tip and shifter tip by Hammerhead Designs. Sport Chrome handled all of the polishing and black anodizing for this build. They always do a top notch job for us and parts come back polished to perfection and packaged nicely to prevent damage while in transit.”
