WP Launches Suspension Upgrade For KTM 690 & Husky 701 Enduros

New closed cartridge fork kit improves off-road performance for dual sport riders.

Published on 12.05.2022

KTM’s in-house suspension specialist, WP, has just released a new version of their XPLOR PRO 6500 cartridge system ― a suspension upgrade for dual sport riders who find the stock set-up doesn’t quite match their requirements on the trail. Previously released for KTM, GasGas and Husky’s high-performance enduros, the new cartridge system has now been adapted to fit the KTM 690 Enduro R (2019-current), Husqvarna 701 Enduro (2020-current) and the recently-launched GasGas ES 700.


Although not cheap, WP says the XPLOR PRO 6500 cartridge was developed to offer an easy and less expensive suspension upgrade by utilizing the standard fork rods to improve the riding experience. The new kit is fully adjustable and features closed cartridge Technology which makes it possible to reduce the oil volume. According to WP,  the pressure in the system prevents cavitation and ensures reliable damping performance in demanding track conditions.

The XPLOR PRO 6500 Cartridge offers:

  • Adjustable compression damping
  • Closed cartridge technology
  • Fully adjustable with standard tools
  • All adjustments can be made externally
  • Better response
  • Improved damping behavior
  • Higher bottoming resistance
  • Fully adjustable to rider’s requirements and circuit conditions
  • Improved handling
  • Extreme durability 


The XPLOR PRO 6500 Cartridge is available for €901.60 which is about $951 USD. For more information visit your nearest WP authorized center or go to
