My best riding buddy who also has an A/T is selling his 2017 bike in order to make room for the KTM 790 adventure R. His reason is that the KTM is lighter and has the same power of the A/T. He has had a 450 KTM EXC in the a past and has been sucked into the marketing scheme of the KTM again "race ready". He is a bit fickle and I hate to see him regret this decision due to hearing about oil leaks, fuel pump problems, software issues with the instrument panel and the supposedly problem with the engine mount which is also mounted to the right foot peg, causing the engine block to crack. Apparently this first year bike is assembled in China and the Q.C.dept. has some problems getting things squared away with these bikes. Has anybody here heard or this? Can it be confirmed that these first year KTM's have this issue?
