Really, does anyone trust this number? I mean would you keep the oil for that long in the engine ?

The official dealer here says that the second service is done on 7.500km for oil change.

What do you think ?
Found something:

Best Client:

We trust that you are enjoying your new KTM 1190 Adventure and that it has so far provided you with hours of fun

and Adventure.

To keep you enjoying your bike and to ensure that it keeps performing to the set promise we would like ask you to

please book your bike in with us for a Technical inspection. It has been brought to our attention that we need to ask

our clients to please bring their bikes into the Dealership on 7500km for a Technical inspection of the air filter instead

of the 15000km service interval.

We would like to go one step further and please ask you to bring your Bike in for the Technical Inspection upon

which we will fit your bike with a brand new High Performance DNA Air filter at no charge. Not only will this new

filter perform much better in very dusty environments but will also increase the bikes performance. This Air filter is

serviceable and could be cleaned and oiled by the client him/herself if the need arise.

Please note that this is a Raceworx initiative and all costs will be for our account. We are a proactive business that

always keep our clients best interests at hand.
So there is a 7500 service, but it's the airfilter recall.
