No brainer, KTM

couldn't possibly recommend triumph after the shit i have had with mine
although you never know they may product a bike without any issues next year...  :rofl:

how about the ducati streetfighter v4.
i still keep thinking that i should have got one
and shouldn't have let silly things like not having enough money get in my way

KTM SMT 990
ride to work and lidl on way home

the speed triple has been with dealer since 23rd sept, and looks unlikely i will see again anytime soon :cry:


New gearbox ?

that was original plan, that then changed to a repair, now they don't have the parts in stock
i am not a happy bunny


No wonder.
No courtesy bike ?
I'd be jumping up and down wanting a new gearbox.
Hope it gets resolved soon. 

i was planning on taking it further, and may still, but after i calmed down a bit, thought to myself, am i likely to be riding it at the moment? probably not. so is it worth creating a lot of drama just out of principle?

Quote from: komp on September 18, 2020, 09:43:44 amnot sure if R suffers from same issues as the RS, but ensure bike has had the QS recall, and watch out for false neutrals between 4-5th
my bike is due to be collected for gearbox rebuild/replacement as it has chewed itself to bits!
common problem apparently!



isn't this a Speed RS not a Street RS issue?

yes, i had missed that andy was talking about a street, then saw pictures and realized my mistake.... and just hoped no-one had noticed   :embarrassed:  :tongue:

both great brands

Out of these 2 particular bikes i think would prefer the KTM, just looks like more fun
but obviously not done any research into reliability

never know might get to see it one day :)

depends when your insurance is up for renewal? usually you will get stung with cancellation fee, so may be better to just let it expire naturally
i dont think you need to tell them why you are cancelling.
I have scrapped a bike in past, and did make the mistake of cancelling, but they didn't care that i was scrapping... just that they milked me for the extra £25 or so
