Production stop on that bike.!

One bike looked up completly at a race last weekend here in sweden.
Sitting on idle behind the starting gate.

Another bike seized at dynojet bench. KTM forgot twostroke oil in the gas!
confirmed after gasoline test.

Couple threads on KTMTalk about it. My take is this - We have two 2015 & my kid goes pretty well. I don't see a need for any more motor & have no desire to have him on air forks. So unless this bike handles like an absolute dream I doubt we will upgrade. It would be nice to have the newer look but that won't help lap times. The 2013-2017 were so much better than any other offering it makes little sense to change (for us)...........

There's always been a bit of fuel in bikes I've bought. Some of them I took out of the crate myself so it wasn't added by the dealer.

Maybe I'm wrong but I've bought new bikes dry from the dealer and I assume they didn't drain the fluids. I wouldn't think flammable liquids could be shipped like that seems like a huge hazard.
