Hi guys so tempted to buy but have heard few problems with oil leaks coolant etc probably just normal moaning .are most bikes ok everyone happy etc many thanks
I think KTM have had a few assembly issues - or rather some quality control failures to be honest.
It's possibly to be expected from a small(-ish) manufacturer as they have ramped up production on a new model and I think they have struggled to keep on top of QC.
That said, I had a coolant leak from the radiator top hose (hose was weeping internally - replaced under warranty) and a weird small brake fluid leak from a badly installed line entering the ABS unit under the tank. Both fixed within a couple of days by my dealer under warranty.
I was obviously annoyed by these things on a new bike but these things happen. They were fixed quickly by my dealer and neither has changed my opinion of the bike now I've had it while - it's just so awesome to ride, with perfect ergonomics for me, a fantastic engine and great neutral handling, it really is a peach of a bike.
It's probably the best bike I've owned for just enjoying riding it, the way it makes you feel - it always puts a smile on my face when I head out. It's so light and easy to wheel in and out the garage too. There are more and more aftermarket bits and pieces appearing on the market too to change the things you want.
You can get a skewed view of any bike as you only seem to hear about the ones that post about problems they find rather than those that have no problems and just ride them.
Get yourself a test ride and see what you think - you'll love it - but you already know that
