My bad.

The first one was for full-time adult average.

The all employees average is around 53,000 USD.

Uk

Good evening,

Mine cost GBP 13,095 on the road with full warranty here in the UK, with eds, KTM dealer threw in the panniers, sat-nav mount, heated grips and both ergo (heated) seats. Average salary in the UK is currently GBP 26,100 pa. Average house price is GBP 175,000, unemployment stands at 7.7% and it looks like we're finally coming out of the damn crisis.

Regards,

Just curious. What are people paying for the first service?

I got a quote from peter stevens in the CBD, $565.. I told them not even BMW would rip me off that much..

again bolton motorcycles to the rescue with $350..

So is that about average?

hmm,

bike=$21,400 in UK - no price in Canada yet.
salary= $42,600 in UK - $47,200 can
home = $285,800 in UK - $382,400 can

based on this I'm estimating $25,000can for the bike when it's released here.

The 1000km or the 15000km? I assume the 1000km is free right?

The 1000km.. It isn't free here.. some might of got it thrown in as a deal,
I didn't have any bargaining power as there was a list of other people who wanted the bike if I didn't.

Peter Stevens also said there is a 7500km service as well.. which is bullshit.. but they said it was $630 and major service at 15000 is $1200..

I'm "here" too. Didnt you get yours in the first shipment? I would have thought you would be way past 1000km by now. I got mine on Tuesday and I'll be booking it in next week... back at Boltons. Guess I'll find out if its not included. Ive never owned a bike/car where the first service wasnt included :(

Edit: Fred just told me $350 and free services havnt existed for 25 years. :lol My 2002 busa definitely had a free service. Oh well... its just more money :)

My Spain's dealer just charged me for the oil in the first service, around 80. He said the 15000's service it's about 230 and 30000's 300 with valves adjustment

Yeah I did but so far it's only commuted to work and back.. I haven't done a decent ride yet..

My bmw was included only because they stuffed around with the shipment, he chucked it in for free.. But it was $175 as opposed to $350-550

Did thy invite you on the customer ride? He was going to send details but none so far lol

I think you really have to negotiate it when buying the bike. The average would be around 200 in Europe. On the german forum, I have read anything between 150.- (Belgium/Germany) and 300 (Austria) where the material alone cost already 100.-. add to that labor and VAT.

I think any cost above 200 should concern extra work, not the 1st service itself. Unless something is already broken, its a simple oil change, hooking it to the computer to reset the service interval and professional check of things you should also check yourself.

KTM counts 71 min. for the 1K service, 101 min. for the 15K and 132 min. for the 30K.

Whew! I thought I was paying too much at $135 including oil and filter......I sort of figured it would have been nice if the dealer had done it for nothing...considering the purchase price... but I will be doing an oil change at 7500km and may do 15k myself...I kinda don't trust dealers....
