If KTM issue a recall to all existing owners and put the 'bikes right at KTM's expense then I may go ahead, but otherwise no. So, thanks a lot for the heads up warning. I will let the local dealer and KTM's Greek distributor know my reasons for not going ahead with the purchase.
What appalls me and has caused me not to go ahead with my purchase is that there has been no recall over this matter for those who purchased the 2013 models. Whereas I can forgive a design error that is corrected at KTM's expense, I cannot forgive irresponsibility and negligence from KTM.
just get the Unifilter - cheap and easy fix - really not good enough reason not to get the bike
