Unhappy Kim 1090 problems

I recently bought a new KTM 1090 from a dealer here in Oregon I rode it right off the lot and took it on a trip , less than 600 miles and had many problems with the bike , starting problems , knocking sounds and vibrations , I took it back to the dealer and the issued me one more bike , I asked them what happened to the other bike and they will not tell and KTM also will not tell me , it seems there is issues with the 1090 and they are trying to not let the public know . Don't buy a 1090 they are junk !

KTM's aren't perfect, but you are the first that I have heard where they replaced the bike (I could be wrong though). They do have their quirks (clunky shifting, odd noises), but this is all completely normal from my experiences. Also finding neutral can be tough some times. I now have 2000 miles on mine and seems that shifting is getting smoother and neutral is getting easier to find. I too have experienced the starting and then dies. I have remedied this by always blipping the throttle as I start bike and problem is solved.

Keep us updated if you here any info.

But without starting a keyboard war I believe your comment that KTM's are junk is a complete miss.

I'll reserve my opinion of junk as my brand new 1090 sits at the dealer with two separate issues that have occurred in under 200 miles of ownership .....

I don't face any problem with my 1090, and I don't hear before that someone exchange 1090 with the other bike. OK, maybe but I don't say anything more.

im not sure about the junk statement but my 1090AdvR stopped running at 91 miles... bike is going to the dealer tomorrow. im not sure if the transport mod was deactivated. KTM NA told me that the warranty was activated so they don't think that's the problem.

I'm not sensing a lot of KTM love in these forums .... of course I'm not helping either. Hasn't the 1090 been out since 2017. Why can't KTM pull their heads out of their rear ends and focus on some reliability. I can say at this point if I had come across these forums I probable would have went with another brand, which kind of sucks as the bike performs really well.

makes you wonder if the quality is going down since KTM become Indian company?
