I have just purchased and received the ktm smc 690. After reading in this forum about some problems the bike has, it makes me feel that I might have made the the wrong decision with purchasing this bike. Can any one please tell me what do you think of this bike, are they reliable bikes exe..

Well, you had to knew that you werent buying a Honda?

I actually don't even know about any major problems with these bikes. Some bikes will stall with aftermarket exhaust but IMO that's not the end of the world.

I don't have mine long. The speedo clouded over and went south. But was replaced for free from KTM. Other then that mine and the few my friends have have been just fine. And its a gas to ride. Ride it and don't worry.....

YOU just bought a great bike that has high demand. The engine is stone reliable with decent service intervals. The little glitches will be easy to fix and a slip-on makes it awesome. Mine has never stalled, has a bitchin Wings slip-on and runs great. I relocated my rear signals and KTM is going to replace the ODO. Enjoy it!!!!
