id find a different dealer, I’ve never heard of thisI've had a couple dealers all tell me the same thing. NEW KTMs can't really be demo'ed. There's something about the bikes computer being locked until they are sold. Once sold, the bikes are registered in the system and "activated". They can't even start them beforehand. If there's some rare service work needed before the bike can be sold, they have to get a special code from KTM to allow the computer/bike to be started. But its very limited as to what KTM will allow.
When they do have a new model that they want to make a long term demo, they have to arrange it thru KTM, and get a special code. The bike has to be kept by the dealership as a designated demo bike for X number of months. All the mileage it tracked and reported to KTM. But it's still a "regular" activation when the bike is actually sold.
I don't know how much of it is actually true, but I've been told basically the same thing from multiple dealers.
