Probably too early to know for sure, but no issues so far. Best bike I've ever owned.

I really like this bike the only thing i am a little disappointed in is the wind noise on the freeway at 75 to 85mph but when some windshield companies like Cbaliey and others get involved I think that will be solved. It is much better that my 950 was and also better off road believe it or not!

Brilliant bike, leaves the 990 in its dust for rideability.

The dealer service and their bugger ups put a damper on my experience. Denting header pipes, cross threading mounting holes, scratching crashbars and bending the KTM bashplate on installation on a new bike are quite unacceptable in my book especially when they assume you will accept the bike with those defects.
The bike is all I anticipated it to be despite the above - great allrounder.

Very satisfied with both the bike and dealer. (Hyperbikes, Puebla, Mx.)
The only "problem" I have had was with the touring panniers. And the dealer is changing them out for the other system them for me under warranty.

Nice to see another Kiwi owner, uly Kiwi
I voted 7. The bike is FANTASTIC and is everything I wanted when there are not problems.
3 points deducted for the problems. Probable should be a LOT more, read on.
I've bought a bunch of new bikes (zooks) over the years and never had one problem. So far for me is the engine dust / airbox issue (not resolved yet and I've reached the point where I totally fucked off with my dealer and KTM and are about to post in every social media forum I can find / join), steering head bearings x3 what a cluster, broken side stand, high low beam switch, steering lock x2, front brake pulsing, air temp gauge about 5 degrees higher than actual (never resolved), screws on the KTM sump guard made by lego (went a paid from some real steel ones), trip meters reset every time I turned the bike off, shift light ignoring my settings, engine stopping after running for 5 seconds, and probably some other stuff I can't remember.
Seriously KTM, how do you malke a profit?

- Don't like the front mudgard in the rain on tarmac.
- I'm a bit disapointed in the fuelconsumption
- cold start
- indicator button
- drive by wire not as nice as drive by cable
- fuel goes everywere when you fill it up to fast at the fuel station
- it would like a one-touch TCS-off botton on the dash (like on the old Pan European).
- tire nippels. It is impossible the pump up the tire in a gasstation due to the possition of the air inlet valves! Or how do you call those...

No bike is really perfect, so 8.5 as it's reasonably close. No issues of note so far tho' I have less than 2k miles done. I'll know better this summer after my trips around Ireland, Scotland, England and France. If it stays as reliable and economical as it has up to now, I'll be well chuffed.
Good luck exploring the infinate abbyss !

Brilliant bike in every sense of the word, can be ridden hard, has loads of comfort and looks great.
My first ever V twin
I ride this bike with passion and vigour...
perky peak power from around 5000rpm and loves to be worked through the gears.
When you hit that sweet spot, it is simply electrifying.
