  • All of our components are crafted from the finest materials and thermo-coated for maximum engine heat reflection.
  • Our Tuned Velocity Stack on the 690 not only maximizes velocity, but also has another creative function; to keep water out. The convex shape of the outer bell-mouth is designed so that the occasional deep water crossing won't ruin your day. If on rare occasion things get gnarly and any water gets through the filter, the convex shape will not allow it to enter the intake tract.
  • Quality is the name of the game. Rottweiler Performance builds our filters with a triple layer defense system that will safeguard your asset against even the smallest dust particles when properly oiled and maintained.
  • Easy and tool-less access to the filter and it's components. Cleaning is a snap.

Rottweiler Intake System - KTM 690 Enduro/SMC


Product Description


Click this link to see the ADV Moto review of this product.


The long awaited Rottweiler Performance System for the mighty 690 is finally here, and built with the only tools we have at our disposal; QUALITY and POWER.
Starting with our proven recipe, we ported our induction knowledge into the big single and created this intake with our signature power producing filter elements. But we didn’t stop there. We reshaped the intake tract with our proven ‘Tuned Velocity Stack’ design in order to maximize intake tract length and velocity. We even added a clever little detail to the outside of the bell-mouth of the velocity stack that keeps water out, and only the good stuff in: CLEAN AIR.
Add tool free removal and incredibly simple access to the intake tract and what you have left over is a KTM big single that guarantees to add the smiles to your miles.

  • Big horsepower gains that only Rottweiler Performance can produce
  • Tool-less access and removal for easy maintenance
  • Proprietary triple layer foam filtration
  • Custom shaped velocity stack for maximum intake velocity
  • 1-hour installation

Fuel Mapping Questions: A PC6 is not required on the 690 for 'safe fueling' when simply bolting on this product. As tested completely stock the AFR (Air Fuel Ratios) values stayed well within safe limits across the RPM range. A PC6 is simply the key to achieve full control over fueling for better or maximum performance, power and the ability to switch maps easily, use Auto Tune for 'dynamic mapping' or install a quick shifter. Think of a PC6 as a 'jetting kit' for fuel injection that will offer even more functions. To learn more, click here.

Fuel Map Terms You Will See:

  • POW = More Fuel to make Power
  • POW+IGN = Power (Fuel) + Ignition Advance (Increased Ignition Timing for more aggressive response and an increase of HP)
  • ECO = Economy

NOTE: 2021+ EURO5 Models are not compatible with the fuel dongle, they will throw a check engine light. 

SAS: Add an SAS/Canister Removal Kit: This is the first thing almost every customer does when building their performance packages. See our SAS Stage Kits to learn more. If you are installing an intake system and would like to retain the emissions systems, skip this option and you will need to install a small breather filter where the SAS valve drew air from the stock air-box available here.

Installing or already have Rally Raid fuel tanks? Some older model aftermarket fuel tanks require you to remove the seat tabs from the 2012+ 690 frame to fit (Please verify with them) This is because KTM introduced a new seat support tab on the frame in 2012 that would not work with existing aftermarket rally tanks designed for previous years without the tabs so it was required to remove them. If you have removed these seat support tabs, we have created a special mounting option to compensate for the missing seat tabs below. If your aftermarket fuel tanks do not require the seat tabs to be cut off, then simply select the normal kit for your year. This option is custom built to order so please allow one extra day for delivery. 

Read below and save with bundled options and big discounts:

Looking to save money while maximizing your power output, run multiple fuel maps with and without ignition advance, auto tune your mapping, clutch-less upshifts and more? Add a Powercommander 6 below, fill the option selections and we’ll send you your PC6 already mapped and ready to go with your custom desired setup just for you. You’ll receive a custom certificate with your name, PC6 model and serial number, all PC6 setups noted and a hand written signature signifying our commitment to quality and service.

  1. MUST HAVE. PERIOD. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Sep 2022

    Three 690’s, an 1190, and a 790. ALL had Rottweiler intakes from new. It’s the only way to keep your intake clean!

  2. Rottweiler intake KTM 690 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2022

    Nice product, super-high quality, YouTube video instructions were well done and helpful. The price seems pretty high for what you get though. I believe I realized a performance increase, but hard to tell how much. I suppose I'm more glad that the stock air box has been removed and now I have a little storage space above the engine (for which I have now installed the Rottweiler storage pouch which will hold my tire repair kit).

  3. Amazing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2022

    Installed with pcv, autotuner, and tekmo titanium header + slipon. Detailed instructions, much smoother and more immediate throttle response and power delivery with more wheelie willingness. Sounds great too.

  4. A legal alternative to an aftermarket exhaust 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jan 2022

    Induction sound alone seems as good and loud as an aftermarket exhaust. Build quality is excellent.

  5. easy to install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2021

    What a great product. Can’t even compare it to the oem.

  6. Big Big Improvement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2021

    Very happy with the intake. With the combination of exhaust and power commander, the difference is phenomenal. I like to be able to see the condition of the filter and with the filter skins I haven't had to clean the main filter yet. I highly recommend the skins as well.

  7. Worth every penny! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2021

    Just installed this along with some other mods on my 2021 KTM 690 smc r. Immediately could tell a difference, the bike breathes so much better. Install was easy, especially with the video instructions to guide you through. I was very pleased with the quality of everything, they went the extra mile for sure. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to ditch their stock air box. The sound this things gives you is awesome! Purchasers will not be disappointed!

  8. compliment to a great motorcycle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2021

    Perfect fit . Quality was made in this product! Now I am happy with power of motorcycle with this kit ( with power commander )

  9. Fit and finish 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2021

    Super high end product. Great instructions. And very responsive customer service. What more can you ask for.

  10. awesome kit made 78hp to the wheel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2021

    As the title states with the rotty intake my 2021 690 smcr made 78 to the wheel unfortunately my dyno guy was unable to get the complete torque read out apparently he says ktms stop reading torque after 5k rpm.
    I originally had the dna air filter on my bike which dna makes great filters and it was a good option and very affordable option but i was getting aggrivated with it because it was a dirt collector, you basically remove the airbox lid and it exposes the filter which is directly where the wheel flings dirt up and the dna filter is a bowl shape so it collects dirt like crazy. With the rotty intake it moves it down under the seat and you can also get the storage bag which serves two purposes gives you storage obviously but it blocks off that gap where sand doesnt fly up and it really does its job i dont get any sand on my filter now. One other great thing i love about this intake is you dont get that super loud intake noise like you do with the dna filter on stock airbox it used to drown out the exhaust note when im riding and i have the fmf 4.1 mounted up so not like its a quiet exhaust by any means, now when i ride all i hear is exhaust which is how i like it. That about sums it up you cant go wrong with this kit, it is pretty expensive but its totally worth it with the gains you make and its a well thought out design. I wish i could comment on the tune they provide for this intake but i didnt have it loaded when i took it into my dyno guy but i would highly recommend you load the rottweiler intake tune into your power commander because your bike will for sure run extremely lean without it this filter breathes!!

  11. lnstalled on 2020 690 KTM SCM R 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2020

    Great product, seat bracket holes didn’t line up more than 5mm of!

  12. So sweet the sound... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2020

    Install was a breeze and exactly like the excellent video. Quality is top notch and the extra storage is nice. But best of all it sounds freaking amazing on my 690 SMCR 2019. Braaaaap. Just get it.

  13. great 2018 KTM 690 Enduro R 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2020

    Love the sound and power with the intake and exhaust the only thing that kinda sucks is every time I when I wash my bike the intake gets soaked and I have to let it dry in sun after I was bike and re oil the filter... Great product tho and the video instructions on website were really good to have helped a lot without it would have took me hours to figure out.

  14. Transformed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2019

    OK, like others I did Tekmo header and PC5 at the same time, its incredible the difference its all made.
    The storage bag fits great too

  15. good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2019

    Very good everything fitted perfectly.
    Had to watch YouTube for fitting instructions

  16. quality performance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Sep 2019

    Very impressed with the quality and performance of this intake system and when paired with a beautiful exhaust from arrow and then add the PC5 game changer and a dongle or two the amazing performance will rip into the soul of your bike. But do your self a favor and get it dyno tuned for your state air quality gas quality sea level and many other factors matter in making real tuned power. And for the money Rottweiler could provide a better down tube that tapers to the throttle body mouth.

  17. Cooler, Louder, Torquey-er 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2018

    I did the whole setup with a DynoJet PCV, Arrow exhaust, and the Rottweiler intake; frankly, this is makes the bike perform perfectly. Everything was easy to install, the instructions for the Rottweiler intake were easy to follow (the Arrow exhaust instruction were terrible but the exhaust swap was easy without them), and the items were built to a high quality. The bike has been running about 20 degrees cooler and will climb a mountain in 2nd at idle without stalling. A minor complaint would be that the intake requires a bit of finese (modification) to make it fit neatly below the 690E-R seat without pressing too hard on the filter.

  18. Clean air, plus a whole lot more... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2018

    Saw dust on the inside of my stock airbox, and decided I should do something about it. Researched a bit, and decided I liked this setup the best. Ended up doing the intake and a PCV, even though I wasn't really looking for more power. I really notice a LOT more power/responsiveness in the mid range, which is where you spend most of your time. Definitely adds a growl when you get on it. Was worried it would be more of a sucking sound, but its a cool and pleasant growl that gets added. No complaints there!

    Being an old dirt bike racer, I wish the filter could be removed from the "frame". Would make oiling it a lot easier. I used to just put the filter in a baggie, pour in some oil, and work it in there. Much more difficult to do with the frame in the way (still not sure I got it oiled well enough). Might look in to some oil that comes out of an aerosol can... Maybe that would work better.

    Bottom line: Easy install. High quality. Allows the 690 to breathe! Oh yea, buy the storage bag to go with!

  19. installed on my 690 enduro 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2018

    Easy to install. Did not change exhaust, fueling or map. Works well, good sound and snappy throttle response.
    Love the extra space created and the optional storage bag.
    Would like the foam filer to be removable from the frame with spare filters available for the perfect setup.

  20. updated review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2018

    Excellent product, although I didn’t receive the tank bag I had ordered, I called and talked to Chris, i was supposed to get a call back, although the call back was delayed, they had already sent the missing item. Excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend buying from Rottweiler performance.

  21. A MUST HAVE FOR 690/701 OWNERS! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2018

    I replaced my stock paper filter with a factory foam filter and thought I would be good to go. I pound long hard off-road miles on my 690 and wanted to make sure no dirt or dust would be getting into my engine. Well, no good! After my first big ride I pull filter and there was dust everywhere down in the intake! That was it, I bought the Rottweiler intake kit. Done deal! 500 miles of dry dusty riding later and my intake is absolutely clean! This is an investment for the thousands of miles I intend to put on my 690. A must do upgrade.

  22. One of the BEST upgrades for your 690 Enduro! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2018

    I'm one of the many who've suffered dirt in the airbox of my 690 Enduro. The UNI oil filter helped, but the stock airbox still had sealing issues. It's super dry & dusty in Northern California so I needed something that'll work and keep the dirt out of my engine. After the super easy installation, I tried it out in Stanislaus National Forest, and it didn't disappoint! It felt like it made a bit more low end torque. Make sure to get a set of pre-filters, they'll save the hassle of constantly cleaning the main filter element, and add a layer of protection that's absolutely needed out in these dry & dusty conditions. Very impressed with the quality product that Rottweiler offers!

  23. Quality Engineering 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2018

    Fitment, materials, tolerances, and design are all top of the line. You can tell someone actually took time going over and over this design and the parts are machined well and made correctly. No cutting corners. They are also quick to respond and very helpful with any questions.

  24. Fixed all of my problems! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2018

    I had a low idle stalling issue for a long time that i was trouble shooting and went through a long process. First I upgraded my fuel pump, bought a new fuel injector and changed the fuel filter and oil. I put in new gas and added the wide band sensor auto tune with the power commander V to adjust the fuel to air ratio. Still had issues when the traffic light would turn green. My air uni air filter looked fine. After installing the rottweiler intake system my bike was completely fixed. All stalling issues solved and more power than ever. I highly recommend! I also got the under the seat bag and am very happy with the stream lined storage. LOVE my bike now!!!

  25. Quality 5 Star Review

    Simple to fit.

  26. Love this intake system 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2018

    Very well made product, super easy to install, great videos on line if you need that extra help and motivation. This intake with a PCV ,a Rottweiler map make an unbelievable difference. Plus with all the extra room up front I got the storage bag as well.

  27. Give your Bike Bite! Get a Rottweiler! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2017

    I bought a 990 Super duke 3 years ago with a Rottweiler intake already installed and it's awesome! but I recently purchased a 690smc r for a bit of that sideways action.. I found the duke set up fits so nice, and easy to service why not hit the guys/girls up for my 690 needs, this was the first time dealing with Rottweiler personally, and they exceeded my expectations in every way! emailed me every step of the purchase and had my new set up delivered to the ass end of the planet (NZ) within days! So I threw the instructions in the bin and went to town installing the part, to easy! everything fitted perfect and the bike definitely breaths and sounds better! now back to work to save for a PCV..the gift was a nice touch to Cheers!

  28. 701 2017 enduro 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2017

    Amazing product huge gains in power very intimidating the bike has earned much more respect along with my exhaust and power command tuned by Rottweiler. Amazing pull and the bike doesn't pop as much on decel and I can feel the bike breathing better.

  29. Unbelievable!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    Fit and Finish is incredible! I replaced the "other" brand aftermarket intake on my 690 SMC with the Rottweiler and notice a day and night difference before the remap!! Top notch product through and through!! Also installed the Rottweiler intake on my Superduke 1290, makes me want to buy more KTM bikes! If they only made intakes for Ducati I'd truly be in heaven!!

  30. Sounds great, easy install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2017

    I installed this intake, along with the canister valve and fueling dongles at the same time; stock exhaust, no Power Commander. It sounds great! You get a nice braaap on opening the throttle, and it's more responsive at low rpms (that's likely from the fueling dongle). The PDF instructions are fairly clear, and Rottweiler has a video on YouTube which is a great help.
    I'd make three suggestions. First, the location for the temperature sensor is a reach for the wiring on my 2017 model. That causes the wire to run against the edge of the filter base plate. I put on two layers of heat-shrink tubing to protect that section of wire. Secondly, if you're using a foam filter for the first time I'd suggest oiling it then setting it aside overnight. I put too much on the first time, and wound up with a small puddle under the bike the next morning. Lastly, pay attention to the throttle body. On my bike, the area where you can attach the hose is fairly narrow, so I had to place the hose clamp on the very end of the hose.
    And I nearly forgot: I found it much easier to remove the crankcase breather tube from the airbox by pushing it into the airbox and out through the top, instead of pulling it directly out as in the instructions. I used the same technique in reverse when installing it on the base plate.

  31. Noticeable Power Increase - kinda scary 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2017

    Installed this along with new exhaust and power commander programmed by Rottweiler. Huge noticeable power increase. Almost scary. The bike idles much better, and the power is much smoother. It is a whole new bike. Should have done this upgrade a long time ago!

  32. worth every penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2017

    I purchased the Rottweiler Intake for my 2015 KTM 690 Enduro R. The product came nicely packaged with all parts needed. The installation was simple and took roughly 1 hour. Now for the good stuff.... this Intake completely transformed my bike! Prior to installing the Intake I was running a AU uni-filter with the evo 1 airbox lid, a PCV with both Rottweiler maps and map switch. I had no clue how much the stock airbox was holding the bike back. It ran great and I thought it was making good power. The PCV made a huge difference from stock. Now that I have the Rottweiler Intake, the power is increased throughout the entire rpm range. I would say that the Intake made as big of a difference as the PCV did. Now that I have both, the bike is simply amazing. I wish I would have purchased the Intake when I installed the Power Commander. This thing rips! I am so HAPPY. Rottweiler absolutely nailed it with this Intake. Aside from the amazing power increase, I no longer have to worry about the poor design of the factory airbox letting dust through to the engine. The Rottweiler Intake seals perfectly, and is super easy to remove and clean. If your on the fence about getting this Intake, just bite the bullet and do it. You bike will thank you. You'll wish you would have done it sooner! To unlock the true performance this product is capable of, get a Power Commmander 5 as well. It's basically like adding nitrous to an already amazing machine.

  33. intake for 5690 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2017

    Read reviews on this particular product for well over a year. Did not wanna spend the money for the Intake and now that I did I wished I would of a long time ago. Very easy to put on the video tells you step by step what to do. A little more Intake noise then stock but I like it. Absolutely wonderful customer service I emailed them back and forth were a great help and I will be buying from them in the future thanks guys

  34. Design of product is First Class 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2017

    This product is very well designed for the bike. All instructions are very clearly written. I 'seat of the pants' dyno certainly tells me the bike responds better throughout the engine range. I does increase 'intake noise' but that is too be expected with such a non-restrictive intake. The bike certainly does 'breathe easier'.

    The added 'option' of the storage bag is great too. Gives a bit of 'hidden' storage space under the seat. Great idea.

    Shipping was very quick and the customer service is beyond superior.

  35. Bolt on happiness. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2017

    What a rocking product. Rottweiler's online reputation preceded them with this purchase and I am very happy. Customer service was awesome too. Thanks Mariel!

  36. Quality construction 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2017

    Just received the kit in the mail. It's winter here in Canada so I'll have to wait for spring to see how it goes. Only thing I can see being an issue is cleaning the filter when its dirty as the filter and plastic structure are permanently mated. I wish you could remove just the filter for cleaning. Otherwise it looks like it will work as billed. Thanks Rottweiler.

  37. Transformed Everything 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2016

    I felt the 690 to be a bit lackluster in the power and filtration department (found lots of dust in my stock air box) After installing this kit I was blown away at the instant results. A little hesitant at first to drop the money, but now will have to budget this into every KTM bike purchase moving forward. Thank you Rotty people!! Braaaap!

  38. Don't hesitate! Well worth the money!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2016

    I recently purchased a 2010 KTM 690 Enduro R and went on a spending spree out fitting it how I wanted. A guy I know with a 990 Adventure suggested and raved one of these intakes. I was concerned with water crossings. He floated his 990 down a river and never had a single issue. Install was VERY straight forward and the bit of kit is a very high quality. I did the front bag setup as well which made running around town much easier. The intake noise is much louder (I like it) and it made a VERY noticeable difference in mid range torque. Between this, an FMF slip on, deleting all the smog equipment and using the TuneECU cable/software to remove throttle restrctions and adjust fueling, its a completely different bike! Don't hesitate! Well worth the money!

  39. Top Quality!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2016

    Rottweiler did not skimp or cut corners like so many other companies do with there products. This is a solid design and easy install. It upgraded the performance of my 690 by leaps and bounds.
    I would love it if your RnD department could come up with a cool design for extra fuel storage in place of the Internal Tank Bag as an option.

  40. great quality!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Oct 2016

    Recently installed and enjoyed the process very much. The build quality and supplied hardware is very, very nice. The instructional video is professional and comprehensive with good installation tips that make sense. I didn't have to make any modifications as is normal with lesser quality bolt ons. Very happy with the results. The bag is a nice touch too.
    I haven't put many miles on yet but can tell that it will last a long time and provide reliable performance and the filter skins that I ordered with the kit will make trail side cleaning a breeze by carrying extras.
    On the exhaust end I was already using a Remus Hexacone / titanium header on stock map setting 2 (advanced), and now the motor is obviously breathing much better. Throttle response is yet another level of slightly more crisp and bottom end sweeter. The induction noise is noticeably more throaty and all good, to be expected. The combination sounds deep and punchy with a mean growl at higher rpm.
