Anyone know what these babies will MSRP at?

I’m guessing in the $10,500 range...

Well someone told me $11k plus but to me that would be suicide, mind you price doesnt seem a barrier to these bikes...I myself am very tempted at a Husky FE

At the KTM intro they said they still hadn't settled on a price. I'm sure it's the same for the white one.

Anyone know what production numbers have been on the KTM FE bikes for the past few years?

Assuming they actually produced more than the 400 units required for homologation in years past, I'm interested to see if having a Husky "RE" cannibalizes sales and leaves a lot more FE's sitting on dealer floors or if KTM will scale back production numbers of the orange bikes so that supply does not far outpace demand.

I hope the price doesn’t jump. I’m interested in a Husky... but let’s face it:

No Neken clamps
No Akro pipe and silencer


It seems like they trimmed some high end, big ticket items off... but I doubt it will effect MSRP

The clamps are still neken, they’ve made the clamps for the xc and sx bikes for years. They just don’t have the logo on them.

whatever you are willing to pay to get on, or bumped up the pre-order list.

Anyone pay MSRP for these bikes? In my neck of the woods theres basically a wait list for some models. If you wont pay MSRP theres a list of people who will. If one shows up on a dealer floor, its gone QUICK. You have no bargaining power. Not like a Kawi dealer where you walk in and theres piles of whatever you want in every Kawi dealer. and theres a Kawi dealer on every corner.

Thinking out loud here, If KTM/Husky costs 10500, and the new RMZ is 6899OTD it leaves you with 3600USD to burn on the zook. Should be enough for a used A-kit suspension and a pipe/remap. How would it probably stack up against KTM/Husky at that point?
What do you think?

BTW. I have one of each colour, not KTM hater by any means but I can't help but wonder, where exactly is the KTM 3600USD better than the RMZ.

Neken makes the clamps on the KTM bikes, they have done it for years.

There has never been a FE with Akrapovic pipe, only the silencer. And the first gen of the FE bikes have always had the stock pipe and silencer. Go and look at every first gen FE bike(2012&2015). We will see the Akrapovic silencer on the 2019 FE bike(if they make one).

Ducati makes a lot of money of their special models (like the superleggera-models). Maybe KTM should try and sell a 20.000$ FE with kit-suspension and a few unobtainable factory parts. Do you guys think there is a market for that?

I don't know, but the Superleggera is more than a premium bike. It's an extremely rare piece of art with a price tag of 80-100k

KTM could probably do something like a Ducati Panigale R or Yamaha R1M. Beefed up suspension, carbon fiber, different electronics etc. But i don't know if a MX bike like that would sell, i think they are fairly happy with the FE system that they have at the moment. The FE bikes have been "only" 1k more expensive than the normal models, i think it's relatively easy to sell that to the consumers.

Costs more than it costs to buy a new kawasaki AND have it set up the way you want..

Ride one and then you’ll just forget about Suzuki and Kawasaki. KTM/husky are the bees knees.

I'm being quoted $7600 for a 17 RMZ450....and that's OTD, so whatever the dealer invoice + sales taxes (6.5 % here) + crap fee (AKA profit) they add on. Cash purchase no trade

So let say $11,000 MSRP (?)
that's $11,715 with taxes
I've seen around here all dealers charge around $800 (at a minimum) in fees
We're already then at $12,715 OTD ... ouch!

I never considered MX bikes as an investment. It's an expensive hobby period. But how the hell can we expect to expand the local riders base with such prices? Because even if the FE is some kind of premium version, I don't think the standard 19 will be that much cheaper.

I love this bike, but it maybe just me, $12K toward a toy that depreciates like crazy?
Used bikes around here just don't sell, and when they do, the owner must be willing to take a massive hit.
The amount of $$ you need then to put toward a new bike is just ridiculous.
I see the same with cars/trucks, and now the Auto industry is all ?? because people don't replace their $60K truck every 3 years? I guess the bean counters think everybody is making $250K/y.

There's also an anarchistic way. Fuck the system, restore smokers back to glory. Cheap. Fun. Reliable.

I don't think that's the answer, and I ride a 17 TC250...

Just my two cents hereunder, from an average moto fan:

As much as I love smokers, I don't foresee a major comeback.
KTM/HVA will maintain them, more likely FI will expand to more models.
I know that Sherco is working on some MX models too but as much as I wish them success, it won't move the needle when looking at the big picture.
As long as Yamaha is making a buck, they'll build them. The other japs, I don't think so.

With the huge R&D and Production costs that's been put into 4 strokes technology, it does not make much sense for a business to re-invest in two strokes and scrap the thumpers.
KTM/HVA FI models have to increase the price tag on these models, and it won't go lower once expanded to other models (just look at what happened with EFI on thumpers).
It's just the nature of the beast.
These are not mass produced items. a DVD player was a fortune years ago but massive qties have driven the price tag to almost nothing.
Dirt bikes are another story.

I just hope that the industry is going to look more carefully at sales number, what kind and how many bikes are at local tracks and what the core of MX riders needs.

Hydraulic never fade clutch that lasts a full season or more and feels lighter at the lever, almost twenty pounds lighter bike weight, no tools needed air filter access, electric start, rock solid reliability, etc., etc., etc.

I am not saying the RMZ450 isn't an awesome bike once you get the balance set and suspension sent off to your favorite company for a revalve but you do get a lot more with a KTM/Husky for the money.

These are toys, you already said it.

Want a real pounding? Get in to sports cars, then we can talk depreciation. If it costs us $3-5k to own a bike for a few years of dirt scootin fun, well that's money well spent in my book and cheap fun. There are plenty of WAY more expensive hobbies out there.

If I had to guess, the RE is gonna cost a few bucks more...BUT...some of the crazy numbers I'm seeing in here aren't likely because...

It DOESN'T have a bunch of the costlier parts that some of ya are bringing up...
