Yeah, they'll quit after an hour if it doesn't connect to the mothership. I was told it's to make sure when it's sold it's registered to a dealer plus it ensures the bike gets the latest map. They caught some unscrupulous dealers holding on to the KTM paperwork until the EOY discounts were offered. That was back in the '08-'11 gen, when they went to FI that function appeared in the ECUs. Ever since there's the occasional owner reporting that their bikes quit after an hour. Mine came in the crate but they opened it enough to flash the ECU which doesn't require it to be running.
