Smoke Coming Out Of Exhaust Of KTM 500 With Picture

I've read some topics of blueish smoke coming out of the exhaust of the KTM 500 from the rings not seating properly. There is a bike I'd like to buy but it's on the other side of the country so the seller sent me a video of it running this morning. He started the bike cold and did a walk around while it was running. You can't see anything from the exhaust until the sun is at the correct angle and then you can see a bit of smoke coming from it. I'm wondering if this is normal or if it's cause for concern. I don't think my old 525 ever smoked (or least I never noticed it). It has 14 hours on it and 400 miles. Thanks for the advice.

Not unheard of with the wrong breakin. They should have seated in the first hour of running. It's probably going to need rings to resolve the issue.
