Nee dis die 2 bikes wat rallyraid toe gaan was net op die regte tyd op die regte plek maar is n baie nice solid bike en hy is nog mooier in realiteit. Prys weet ek nie maar dink mens moet bietjie tyd op hom
En die 790 spandeer om regtig te kan besluit.
Hy is baie gemakliker as die 790 dit sal veral die geval wees vir groter ouens.

 :biggrin: :ricky: daar kom 10 demos Oktober wat oor die land beskikbaar gaan wees vir demos en die eerste bikes wat gekoop is kom november.
Soos ek verstaan is daar al reeds van hulle verkoop in ons area

I cannot argue with a KTM rider who is well versed in KTM service, and knows the expression of "useless" very well. :pot:

I hope we don't get the 10 Hp version like what Honda did with the CRF450L.

I was thinking about this last night.   I've actually had great service from FAST KTM and Raceworx. 
They actually REPLY TO EMAILS! which is amazing considering how some people (especially in the motor industry) refuse to use this "new fangled" technology of electronic mail, and instead only grace you with a reply if you present yourself in their shop, or use the wonder of Alexander Graham Bell's "Telephone".

On top of this, the 1290 SuperAdventure R, which is JAM PACKED with wicked electronics and sensors etc, (A TFT DASH with no moving parts! The horror!!), and a "finnicky orange bike"  has been the single most reliable vehicle I've ever owned so far I think. (Yes I've had a Jeep but it was a string of Volkswagens before that).

(I'm only half Joking.  KTM seems to have quite a decent dealer coverage throughout the country. I wouldn't really know where to go look for a Yamaha these days?   That big shop on the M1 that sells boats and pianos?)

Stop right there to avoid further disappointment.

Volume probably only goes to 50% and the salesman told you its all youíll need? How long was the wait for the radio? Did they get someone from Denon to make a demo video of the radio to make it seem nicer? Did you end up paying too much for it?

Pffftt.... You probably stream radio via a smart watch.
This here is a transistor radio.
And it will last forever.
Volume? You will get 100% of the 50%..... :peepwall:

It seems your perspective is a bit warped.
VW's reliable?
Try Toyota for a change.

Your references to fine KTM workshops that reply to sad emails are useless.

When you have a yamaha, you don't need workshops.
Nor do you have to build up some special relationship with them in order to have them soothe your reliability concerns.

I'm just saying this whole "KTMs are unreliable" thing is total BS.   Maybe 20years ago but not now. 

The problem with buying a Toyota, is that then you have to drive a Toyota :-\  I actually want to like what I'm driving (and riding for that matter)

This is what the orange men do not understand, that there are brands that one can buy, and never worry about oil from your brand-new rear shock getting onto your rear tyre, etc. :pot:

It's usually the guys that goes holidaying with bright ORANGE engine management lights glowing on their dashboards that also like KTM. :pot:

Now I see why manufacturers make these lights in orange....... :snorting:
