2016 1190 Adv, 2020 890 DukeR, 2008 Buell 1125R
I have a 2016 1190 adv that had engine replaced due to a leak at 3k. Since that only a fuel level sensor.Is KTM reliable? I’m looking at buying 2021: Triumph Speed Triple, Aprilia Tuono 1100, or KTM Super Duke 1290. I’ve been reading some things about SD’s popping codes, warnings, bringing to shop with low miles for repairs. Starting to be concerned about my #1 preference being the SD, maybe an expensive decision I may regret.
I’m coming from being a long time Honda RC51 owner. I’ve never had any issue with my RC. Should I be concerned with KTM reliability? Anybody have any issues with their new KTM? Should I consider Triumph or Aprilia instead?
My 890 Duke r hasnt had any issues and is at 3000mi.
Guess it depends what you're looking for. If you have a good dealer nearby, warranty, AAA and you don't travel hundreds of mIles away from civilization then reliability doesn't really matter.
