I don't recall assigning anyone fault in my post; not KTM or the OP. Of course it wouldn't be KTMs 'fault' if he got a flat tire any more than it would be the President's fault that he got struck by lightening (cue the 'thanks Obama' meme).

That being said when you expect a certain experience, based on the marketing of the company, and the bike doesn't deliver that level of experience, I can understand the frustration and annoyance. The bike did not live up to expectations. The expectations therefore were wrong -- either by the fault of KTMs marketing or by the fault of a lack of research, well that's not something I can comment on, but I like to think "truth in advertising" trumps "spend hours on internet forums and hope you've read the right reviews"
