I have to admit the maintenance levels were based on hearsay from owners of older KTM's on this thread. It seems most of the KTM threads are about major engine failures, dealer repairs, and cost of parts. Aprilia owners talk about what farkles to get next, and Duc owners talk about luggage and scheduled maintenance. I really am just talking out of my ass, though, since I haven't owned KTM or Duc.

I certainly heard the same about the older KTMs, I know that KTM extended the service intervals significantly, but I have no idea about reliability, issues, service cost, and so on. Was just curious as I think the 1190 Adventure (R) is a super interesting bike.
