G'Day Ozi,

I just had the first service done at Dalby Moto and they are working with KTM to find a solution to the light issue. There is no way to permanently leave the ordinary lights on unfortunately. They uploaded a software update and I was hoping that might sort out the on / off thing but it didn't. Seems like something they probably should get right soon as it is a bit daunting when the lights go out. The only solution at the moment is to go to settings and turn the DRL light option to Off every time you start the bike at night. Bit of a pain because you have to be stationery to do so, but definitely a lot safer.
