Original stock seat was used for a Renazco upgrade (which was sold separately before I purchased the bike) and is not available. I have the stock mirrors from my previous bike (2007 690 SM), which are the same as the ones that came on the SMR, if you want them. One mirror has a tear in the boot. Original owner didn't remember what happened to the original mirrors.
I've owned the bike for four years (but obviously didn't ride it much), purchased it from the original owner Bob Q (long-time parts guy at Scuderia). Bike has been very well-maintained (only Motorex Crosspower, oil was just changed at 7656 miles) and garaged since new. New battery installed June 2016 (Yuasa YTZ-10S). Tires are ContiAttack SMs that will need replacing soon. I have receipts for the work done at Scuderia (first/3000/6000-mile services) along with the pre-delivery checklist from new. The bike runs well, but has the occasional typical idle issue (I've tried most of the usual fixes, short of remapping the ECU, and usually it's fine, but occasionally it stalls). I've decided to sell because I recently purchased a 1290 SDR.
KTM offered the 690 Prestige (same mechanical spec as the SMR, same upgraded brakes/suspension/wheels, but different colors/graphics) in 2007, but I have never seen one of these in person in the US (interestingly, the owners manual that came with this SMR is titled "2007 Prestige"). The 690 SMR was only offered in the US in 2008. It continued to be offered elsewhere in the world in 2009, before it was discontinued. There was also a 690 SM Limited Edition in 2009/10, but I believe that was simply an SM with different graphics and a lower seat height and wasn't offered in the US that I'm aware of. I attempted to find out just how few of the SMRs were brought to the US, but haven't been able to uncover any hard data. Don L (previous Scuderia owner) and Bob Q came up with a guesstimate of seventy-five total brought to US in 2008. I talked with a rep at KTM USA and he said that they don't have those numbers and are not able to access them. That sounded odd to me, and my last resort was to try KTM Austria, just never got around to it. The numbers must exist somewhere... Nevertheless, this is a very rare bike.
