No i dont, but to be honest i am a bit afraid, the newly made 790 engine might start having issues after 20-30tkm (i do push it hard) and having only one season of warranty left i am not sure i want to take that risk.
Then there is the electronics, if problems start to occur after the warranty-> it will get mighty expensive.
That is why i am slightly upset KTM do not sell extensive warranty in Finland.
My personal reliability scale begins with Honda and ends with Ducati. Unfortunately Ktm is not at the top on my list at this moment. The 2 year warranty does not help the matter either.
Lets say a Honda cb1000r, with an engine that has been in production for years, with a great reputation and on top of that 4/5 years warranty would keep my mind absolutely stress free! That bike i would easily push towards the 60-80tkm mark.
I love KTM for its bold race approach and i have had the pleasure of owning 3 Ktm bikes so far. Of-course i have my fingers crossed for a 790 supermoto with 180kg wet weight, cruise control and 4 years warranty-> so i could trash it up to 50-60tkm mark.
One can only hope and dream!
