KTM Warranty Sucks?

Postby cessnatpa » Mon Mar 19, 2018 12:53 am

There is a guy on YouTube I follow and is saying on a new SD the warranty does not cover any of the electronics, is this true?

Ducati also has a 24 month warranty with an incredable history of their bikes requiring a great deal of service/ repair. Thought of getting their MutiStrada Touring. The salesman actualy talked me out of it. He said the bike had to brought in to bleed the brakes & I did not live close enough to dealer??

The KTM service department explained to me how to change the oil and filters then, said I will see you when the bikes at 9K to 10K miles.

In the USA you can get full extended insurance coverage for your KTM SDGT through Zurich or RPM.

Best,

Doc :) :)

My '16 GT has required more warranty work than I'd like (Mainly preload adjuster failure), but there has been no trouble whatsoever getting warranty coverage, and my dealer has been great.

I've had a 2010 Multistrada since new and have never had to bleed the brakes other than routine flushing. And it was a simple standard procedure. Not sure what that salesman was talking about.
