I know someone who is in the process of acquiring such a bike.
Apparantly the bikes are at Durban harbour at the moment with Customs.

Around 90-something k for the 990R, and 60-something for a 950SE!
Problem is you have to pay cash before it is ordered, no finance.



Tell your mate to be very careful! My stepdad didnt listen to me and also did this deal with 2 blasters...expensive exercise it was indeed. All was legit and bikes were in the harbou. All you had to do was pay upfront so that they could be released but then the guy couldnt deliver and he got sued and- and- and .........YOU NEVER GET YOUR MONEY BACK.

when the first dog has one and can confirm all these rumors we might just have a huge rush

but there is a old saying

if it sounds to good to be true it probably is to good to be true

these bikes will come from EU - ie. euro's and the rand is not strong against the euro

if it was harleys i could believe it cause the dollar is so k@k at the moment  :-\

Thats the strange thing, apparently it is stock from KTM USA, thats why the prices are so low...

There might be some truth to the left hand drive theory then!  >:D  :imaposer:

Only time will tell if this is indeed too good to be true...

Everyone has their doubts, but he seems to be willing to take that chance.
Lets hope that he does not need to write it off as school fees...

I have heard of businesses bringing in second hand bikes by the container succesfully, only to be left with nothing after the third or fourth shipment.  :-\

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

A couple of yeras back there used to be a dealer near Cresta here in Jhb (I think it was called Cayenne Sport or something to that effect) that had a whole bunch of KTM's that they brought in, they sold them at a much cheaper price and the KTM SA guys nailed the buyers when they wanted spares >:(

Now what happens if I decide to buy a KTM while I'm traveling around Europe and ride it back to SA, are they going to give me the same amount of grief because it isn't an official KTM SA bike?  Honda used to be #@%$ing irritating with spare parts and VIN numbers having to be provided but I see that they've stopped their kark

that VIN thing is so easy to get past

just go on the internet and search which VIN were assigned to South Africa

or use your buddy's VIN number or write down the VIN number from the bike thats parked at the mall or airport

Interesting reading

Funny that these things remain hush hush.

For R60k I would buy an SE now. But no contact detail?

I would however never give money to someone who I don't know without any guarantee.

If it sounds too good to be true . . . . . . . . . . . .

Until I see it with my own eyes.

I wonder if you would be able to finance such a bike?

Generally not , we have to provide proof that the bikes we finance for customers are not grey imports before the finance is approved.

I see the manufacturers recommended selling price in the US for the SE is $13200 or about R100 000. It will be pretty difficult for someone to source a new bike there, pay for shipping it over here, add a profit and sell it for R60 000.

Could it be in the same vein as Triumph SA's last selling of container damaged bikes.
Thanks for the heads up on that one.

NOT.

I say bring in the grey imports. We are being bent over barrels by the likes of KTM SA.

Take the Price of eg. Scorpion tyres. Two years ago pricing went up to about R2000.00. The reason we were fed is the "The exchange Rate".  Someone took initiative and brought in Heidenau at half the price. Raai wat! You can now buy Scorps at less than a thousand rand from KTM.( and they're still making a profit).

How is it possible that I can land KTM OE products in SA from USA (KTM Twins) Cheaper and quicker than I can get it from my local KTM dealer?

I'm not blaming the dealer, I reacon the shafting is done by the top structure.

Put me down for a 950SE
