KTM 690 Enduro R is redesigned in 2019. Beside the new engine, there are a lot of other small and not so small improvements. Geometry of the bike is new. Tail section of the new model is different than on previous models and it is much more suitable for rack-less luggage. Rear tank is wider and rear side plastics are providing better support for side pockets (legs) of rack-less bags.

To keep up with those changes, our KTM 2019+ Luggage rack SD is designed specifically for this model and it is a bit larger than our rack for 2008-2018 models. Slot placement is also a bit different, so it can accept various soft luggage bags even better.

Equipped with Perun moto KTM 2019+ Luggage rack SD and Heel guards, 2019+ KTM 690 Enduro R is very capable for carrying luggage. 

New Mosko moto Reckless 80 "Revolver" (or simply "V3.0") is a great choice for this bike. Angle of the side pockets (legs) is now adjustable and when set in position 3 it fits perfectly on 2019+ 690 Enduro R

Side pockets sit at a perfect angle, everything is very secure and nothing flaps around, even if bags are only half full.

Like on Reckless 80 V2.0, base of the harness has an opening for fuel cap, so if bag is placed correctly, refueling is easy.

Perun moto KTM 2019+ Luggage rack SD provides perfect strapping points.

Bike stays narrow, as much as it can be when it is carrying the luggage.

Since both fuel tank and our KTM 2019+ Luggage rack SD are wider, side pockets sits nicely and are supported by side plastic fairing.

Unlike on the previous 690 models, LHS side pocket now rest entirely on the plastic fairing and it is just barely touching (or not touching at all) the silencer. Even so, using a heat shield is still obligatory, even with an aftermarket exhaust.

One note - if you are using stock silencer, which runs very hot, make sure that rubber grommet, shown on KTM Spare parts diagram below, is still in it's place. That grommet is preventing the side panel from being pushed directly onto the silencer.

When the bags are properly positioned and strapped, everything is very secure and tight. Another great thing about this setup is that bags act as a cushion pillow in case of fall. Built quality of Mosko moto bags is fantastic, so these bags can withstand such abuse. In my experience, this is much better protection than any hard part, such as pannier rack, as bags soak the hit without transferring it to the frame. Just don't carry anything fragile in side pockets.

Another new feature of "Revolver" is that "beavertail" is now removable. This is very convenient if the bag is used for carrying less than 80 liters of luggage. I use this feature very often, for single day rides in autumn or spring, when mornings and evenings are chilly, but mid day is still hot. Side pockets provide more than enough room for storing tools, spare tires, jacket and mid layers, some spare clothes and food and water, while entire seat remains free and body movements are not restricted in any way, even on steepest downhills.
