Anyone take delivery yet on a 950 Enduro?
Christ, it ain't bad enough that my bike is still broken in half and you gotta keep posting pictures of this fuckin' thing. My keyboard is gettin' all gooed up from all the slobber!!!
Tell the truth- it's ain't all slobber you one handed moto-pervert!
Fwiw, when I asked KTM's East Region rep at the Delaware supermoto demo day, he was pretty confident that the US would be getting them in July.
Hey, this post was supposed to draw out information from around the world, not just from my riding buddies. Don't worry, Walter and Chris, I'll let you fellows have a ride!
Hasn't anyone seen one in Australia? Austria? Germany?
I should be picking mine up mid to end May. Then again, there is no fixed delivery date for France yet. One thing I do know: that is one SEXY beast!! And I am way excited to be getting mine!!!
They were tested in Lesotho (mountain kingdom) in South Africa, awesome awesome. GPS tested at 200km/h which is insane - considering Lesothos roads.

what's the tank capacity on this beaut?
About 13 litres. 3.4 US gallons, 2.86 UK gallons.
Haven't seen an Enduro yet but we did service a 950 SM recently.
Last Sunday we had 'Orange Day' here in the Netherlands. There was a preproduction SE. Yep, it's a beaut. The people from KTM NL told us that production starts at the end of may, early june.
About the only real sightings to have taken place has been in South Africa and Lesotho. I posted some really cool pics of Sala testing the bike here:
Not here in Australia yet, the dealers are saying they expect the 990 Adv, 950SM & the SE to arrive in May, but from what KTMax has just said above, maybe their dreaming.
You can see at the KTM site the date June 2006
Latest estimates for availability in the US is September 2006 as an "early 2007 model". Still no confirmation on price in the US. Also sounds like another very limited production run...so get your name on a list now if you want a shot at one.
My dealer told me the other day that they expect the R in New Jersey in June. I think that it wishful thinking, since it hasn't yet shown up in Europe on the open market.
Anyone in Austria, Italy, France or Germany seen one in a dealer yet?
I hear that they have landed in Australia but can't get them through ADR.
I'll be first in line for those fork protectors and headlight assembly on my black 950 ADV. The orange "splatter" will look darn good on the front of a shiny black model.....with a shiny black SM high fender.
I have to stop modifying this thing......when will the madness end?
The fork guards don't look like they'll bolt on to me.. they have KTM' s OTHER bolt pattern, not the one found on the 950 and new 640.
Could be wrong but sure looks that way to me. See www.ktmimages.com
I ran into this on Friday. The first (according to its owner) 950sm in the USA!
