seems to have the same brittle bash plate that the other non-specials have.. maybe KTM doesn't realize baja has rocks?

They had to leave a few things for the new owner to personalize.

I remember in 2006, when BMW introduced the 1200GS while still selling the 1150GS too. They had both bikes in the same model year. They came out with a limited edition 1150GS in the white and blue scheme. Gosh, I still want one of those suckers, I loved that white/blue 1150GS.

Oh ya, that Baja KTM looks nice too. But I already have two LC8's in the garage so I don't lust what I already have. Now where can I find a 2006 1150GS....

Although, the orange frame and crashbar combo is cool looking. White plastic wouldn't look good past the first day for me.

I have been wanting a new bike for the past few months, spent countless hours reading about the KTM 900 adventure as well as the tenere and a few others but none spoke to me like the KTM, I guess the orange got to me from having a ktm 990 SMR last year..I went to my local dealer yesterday and they just put a new baja edition on the floor... I looked, sat on it and it all came clear.. Had to have it..... Picking t up in a couple of hours.
I know it has been discussed but first things I want are the sidestand relocator and a skid plate.. The ones I saw all seem quality so any reason to pick one over another ? .thanks...

You're fine with any of them. The 9x0 ADventures have been refined for a decade now, no major TSBs. Just basic maintenance. I'd still recommend flushing the cooling system within 10K miles, on my 2008 I had a lot of sand still in the circuit. And of course, keep replacing those fuel filters.

Yup! Got mine! It is a little lower than my 04 950 was, but it feels good. I love it!

Any EFI fueling issues on the '13, or have all those been sorted out? If not what are the recommended solutions?

To answer garet's question "Any EFI fueling issues on the '13, or have all those been sorted out?"

Rode this 2013 Baja this summer at Steamboat springs during the rally. No EFI issues, that's fixed.

Now to be flamed. My 08 has the on/of throttle and I'm just about ready to download the improved 08 map from tuneECU. Anyway when I bought the bike and test rode, I returned and questioned the dealer, he shrugged his shoulders and said no one has complained about the throttle before???

I am still disappointed that KTM has never helped us out with the throttle thing. Another image issue for them I suppose. But they fixed it on this 2013 but sheesh, what about all the previous models???

On head shake it's the D908 front. This bike was dangerous, in my humble opinion, major wobble when under execeleration. Got my attention. Interesting I asked the KTM dudes about it and they shrugged their shoulders as if I was the only one that ever wondered. This type of responce is not the engineers or designers of the company it's the front men. Sorry not all but seen it more than once.
