Oil Consumption

My 1190 is 3 weeks old and now done 1450k. By 950k when I took it in for the 1st service, oil level was down to the bottom segment in the window. After service it was close to the top. Have since...

Does anyone know how many MY2013 1190s were actually made by KTM?
And how many of these came to Australia?
