2x they are standard. But ship separate. I still don't have mine yet.

I've heard from several 2012 owners on another forum that the factory panniers are on backorder in the US. There is supposedly a shipment on the way to the US and will be distributed to those that received their bikes without them.

KTM chose to ship out the bikes without them rather than hold up the bike orders waiting on the bags. They also sent notice to the dealers.

If your dealer says otherwise, then call KTM USA.

I just called them and spoke to Scott (?) and MAN, was he helpful!!! He was super-knowledgeable and answered all my stupid questions about an SM-T I was looking at with patience! Great dude!!

Question

Does anyone over here in the 990 SM-T thread know the answer to these questions:

1. Are the stock SM-T seat and the Ergo seat for the SM-T the exact SAME seat or are there differences?

2. Are any of you using a stock SM-R seat on your SM-T?

Help us out over on the 990 SM-R Thread if you can.
Thanx.

Ha.

Mike I just answered over in the SMR thread and it looks like Jako confirmed. The ERGO is an SMT seat with gel pad.

Hi all,

Perhaps I can shed some light on a few questions that have been asked here.

- yes, the bags are included with the SMT for 2012.

- It is true that the bags are shipped separately from the bikes. KTM USA has been waiting on the bags to arrive from Austria. As of 6/18, they have not yet arrived in Ohio.

- You'll get different answers asking dealers what MSRP is on the SMT, and here's why.. Dealers pay freight on every bike they order ($400 on the SMT) and they also pay their mechanics to perform the 'pre-delivery inspection' before the customer takes possession of the motorcycle.. MSRP will vary depending on whether your sales person includes these costs in the price quoted. Bike only (no freight or set-up) MSRP on the US model SMT is $13,999.
Dealers will advertise/quote different prices depending on their sales strategy and how much they will charge in the way of fees. What matters is the "out the door" price. For example, a dealer may quote $13,599 for the SMT.. and then charge $400 freight and $300-400 set-up plus whatever labor for bolting on accessories. - there are a very small number of dealers around who don't currently charge those fees, but to avoid this post being an advertisement, I won't go into who they are .

- the rear wheel does not have to be off the ground to adjust shock preload.

I bought an SMT as well, and I have to say, this is the best bike I've ever owned. It's an elegant and precise harmony of performance, style and function. love it.


cheers,


Jacob

Hello. I got three questions please.

1) Are there any differences between the 2010 SMT and the 2012 ?
2) Were there any recalls from 2010 on that bike?
3) A friend of mine owns the 990 Adventure, and claims that his fuel consumption is 6 to 6.5liters/100km . This consumption is while traveling with 100-140km/h, not in the city. Since the SMT wears the same engine, should i expect the same or something like 8 l/100 ?

1) The biggest differences between the 2010 and 2012 models are the 2012 has ABS and the screw adjuster for ther rear shock.
2) The only recall that has been done on my 2010 model is (believe it or not), an emissions label
3) I get mileage in the high 30 mpg range which looks to be in line with the 6-6.5 l/100 km

ABS is the biggest difference. Minor suspension tweaks. Accessory outlet added in 2011. Nicer rear preload adjuster on 2012.


Not that I've heard. Don't know about 2010 but no recalls on 2011/2012. Very little has changed.


The type of riding has a big impact on consumption. I've gotten as low as 28 mpg(us) to as high as 43. Mid thirties for mixed riding is common.

Ok, this explains why i found a stock 2010 model with 10.500 euro. Its the ABS, i thought that since 2009 they have it as stantard.

The 14.000 euro is really much for my pocket but that bike is definitely worth it.

Thank you very much for the fast replies :)

I just did a ride yesterday mostly highway about 60mph. I got about 34 mpg. Before that 33 mpg. I average between 30-35 depending on how I ride.I readjusted the front suspension from standard to sport. What a difference. It handles a lot better. On standard setting it felt squishy and I had a hard time making high speed sharp turns. Now I just have to set the rear.

I have been following a thread over at the KMT 990 SMT forum and was wondering how many people here have trouble removing their gas caps. Here is a link to that forum.

http://www.ktmsmt.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3732

Here is a link to a replacement gas cap available from Renazco for the 690, and a lot of people are hoping that it fits the SMT.

http://www.renazcoracing.com/index.c...&sortorder=ASC

Anyway, this is a shout-out for anyone with an SMT in northern California. I spoke with James at Renazco and he said that he has had a lot of inquiries but he needs a bike to check out the fit. If any of you can get up to Santa Rosa, I'm sure that people from all over the world would be grateful. It's 450 miles from here which is a little long for me to get up there.
