Yar, its the only problem with the internet... people sprout all types of innuendo to stir shite.

Edit... just watching that video. Its the assembly line, but you know people will argue that the parts probably came from india. lol. Like others have said, parts probably come from all over the world.

Looks like an "assembly" line to me, where did the parts come from?

Not stirring mate, just my opinion on the state of manufacturing now, and how some "parts" are poorly made, leading to failures..

So what your saying is what? That everythings perfect? All the people with the same fault are lying?.

hehe

no mate.. I'm just trying to prove that our quality Austrian bikes are put together by Austrians ;)

as far as castings, injection moulding or welding is concerned with parts, could be all over the world as suggested.. But the main thing to keep in mind is if the casts are indian or whatever, least (you hope) with an austrian putting it together your not going to get loose headbolts or anything stupid like that.. touch wood.. lol

on another note.. I went past a company car the other day with KTM industries written on it so I just looked it up.. I had no idea KTM made mountain bikes as well.. http://www.ktmbike.com.au/

And race bikes!
I still have a KTM race bike and had a KTM MTB.
Theu use the same name and logo and are both in the same town in Austria (Mattighofen) but are in fact two completely seperate companies as far as I've heard.

For sure they exists, but I haven't seen any 'Made in India' in my 1190... yet.

Usually I blow some compressed air under the grip and it comes right off. You need a source of compressed air though.

I tried compressed air, but the glued bits stayed glued.

Cut it off with a knife.

If that's genuine what does$16.8k get you?

Just the bike, bags, some other goodies?

Anyone guessing?

$16,499 = 10,512 in dear old UK. Considering our Adventure price here is 12,595, you guys stateside are getting a bargain.
