Parts access

Hello everyone,

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2015 RC8R. Iím just wondering what the experience has been with getting parts when/if theyíre needed. Iím also wondering if anyone knows what KTMíS policy is regarding the manufacture of parts on a discontinued machine. Thanks in advance for any help.

Just donít want to buy this great machine (only 550 miles on the clock) to have it become unusable eye candy because I canít get parts when something breaks.

check out cheap cycle parts.com, one of many places no issues getting parts so far

Rocky Mtn good place to get parts. KTM world.com might be a good choice too. Bike Bandit used to be my go to but they were having problems with back orders and I'm not sure if they got that squared away. KTM dealers would be the last place I would go. My local dealer hasn't been able to get me anything.

Thank you sir, little disheartening that the dealer canít get you anything.

theres intermingled parts with sd,sdr,1190 adv.
the 2008,2009,2010 rc8 1150cc models , parts finder shows all parts available.

Infact ktm is pretty good back to 97, then it gets sketchy.

welcome, the rc8r is going to be a great usable collector.
