Tsk tsk tsk, Yankee bashing with a handful of facts?
Don't you understand that they expect "forever flawless no matter how much you abuse the product" backed up by their ridiculous laws?
Hell, a cup of Mac's too hot coffee in your lap may make you a millionaire, you don't know that?
You're from the real world my man, you have common sense, cool down please... same like you would do with your coffee  :thumleft:

Yeah I like your posts, but this bit is for those totally lacking common sense or any sign of reason(ability)  :P

So, basically you were sued because you own a TLB?
Yeah, that definitely is a more sophisticated part of the world hmm?
 :lol8:

Let's carry on with this thread, after all I own a handful of KTM's, a 790 amoung them.... ooh shit, hope @2StrokeDan  won't sue me now?
Big Oil cannot because he's not a Boertjie - hell, would have been funny if he was probably?
Suddenly normal, reasonable, would&could make a plan, geez, he'd even speak a second language!  :P
Enjoy your time there Chicco, hope you're in a part that has a similar climate to us here, lekker  :thumleft:

No amount of Yamaha's breaking down can make the 790 reliable. Only KTm can, themselves, without the Indo-Chinese.

So, no, Chicco did not donner up our strategy, as discussed by zoom. :thumleft:

Quote
In a new segment of Adam Ruins Everything, host Adam Conover explains that basically everything people think they know about the McDonald’s hot coffee lawsuit is false. He walks through some of the actual details of the case:

  • Stella Liebeck was a 79-year-old woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico, whose grandson drove her to McDonald’s in 1992. She was in a parked car when the coffee spilled.
  • Liebeck acknowledged that the spill was her fault. What she took issue with was that the coffee was so ridiculously hot — at up to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, near boiling point — that it caused third-degree burns on her legs and genitals, nearly killing her and requiring extensive surgery to treat.
  • McDonald’s apparently knew that this was unsafe. In the decade before Liebeck’s spill, McDonald’s had received 700 reports of people burning themselves. McDonald’s admitted that its coffee was a hazard at such high temperatures. But it continued the practice, enforced by official McDonald’s policy, of heating up its coffee to near-boiling point. (McDonald’s claimed customers wanted the coffee this hot.)
  • Liebeck didn’t want to go to court. She just wanted McDonald’s to pay her medical expenses, estimated at $20,000. McDonald’s only offered $800, leading her to file a lawsuit in 1994.
  • After hearing the evidence, the jury concluded that McDonald’s handling of its coffee was so irresponsible that Liebeck should get much more than $20,000, suggesting she get nearly $2.9 million to send the company a message. Liebeck settled for less than $600,000. And McDonald’s began changing how it heats up its coffee.

Best acting I've seen in a while.... :peepwall: It will only overheat if you are not going fast enough....like when you ride like a baby...or ride with BMW's or Yamaha's......

KTM has issued a recall on certain 790 Adventure and 790 Adventure R models for an issue with the rear brake system. A total of 3,164 bikes are affected by the recall issued through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to the defect report, insufficient heat transfer between the rear brake hose and the metal fitting that mounts to the rear brake caliper may cause the brake line to overheat. For affected units, there is a possibility that the rear brake system may fail under heavy use.

A new rear brake line, with a longer metal fitting, has been developed to improve heat transfer. To remedy the braking issue, it is necessary to replace the brake line that leads from the rear brake caliper to the ABS modulator. Also during the repair it is necessary to replace the round head Torx screw on the rear brake lever with a new screw. KTM will notify owners, and dealers will install the recommended parts, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin June 1, 2020. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. KTM’s number for this recall is TB2011. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or check your VIN for recalls at www.nhtsa.gov.

So the issue was fixed and only 3200 bikes were affected.

on the KTM sales

There’s no doubt the U.S. is one of today’s most challenging markets. Once predictable and lucrative, manufacturers are now scrambling for traction as demographics wane and trends shift unsteadily. Despite a strong economy, sales of new motorcycles were not just stagnant in 2019, they actually shrank by 2.7%.

But KTM’s sales grew by 3.6% in the U.S. last year. If that doesn’t impress you, what about the fact that 9.7% of new motorcycles sold in the States last year were KTMs or Husqvarnas.

In the global market, Pierer Group’s figures are no less impressive and also not strictly a story about small displacement sales. Globally, large displacement bike sales (over 1200cc) were down 6.3% for 2019 while KTM’s sales of bikes over 1200cc went up by a whopping 14.5%.

In total, KTM sold 280,099 units globally, up from 234,449 in 2018. And Husqvarna, benefitting from KTM’s aggressive support saw sales rise to 45,650 units, creating a 7% increase in marketshare for the duo, and a 4% gain in revenue.

What you listed is the rear brake line recall, which has been addressed. 

What I'm taking issue with is front brake master cylinders self modulating and locking up, which KTM.....denies  :biggrin:

I applaud your efforts though.  :biggrin:

When the engine is filled with IndoChinese components, you can just give them a new one so the same thing happens again
