KTM... Bicycles?
Jul 17, 2014 - 10:01 AM - by sandy mary
I've always viewed cycling as one of the best forms of exercise, I mean running is a bit foolish and lifting and moving weight about is more than a bit dull. No, I like cycling because not only do you run your legs ragged and put your lungs through the ringer you get to work on your motorcycling as well. Of course its not the same as motorcycling, but 2 wheels are 2 wheels, and if time away from 2 wheels can be spent on 2 wheels well then I call that a benefit.

Pardon my prattle, just needed a bit of a preface to where I'm coming from. What I've only JUST discovered is that KTM is also a manufacturer of top quality bicycles as well as hooligan grade motor bikes. Only over the last year have North American distributors popped up for their Bicycle range, America got them in 2013 Canadians only just.

Regardless, have you SEEN the product? Goodness. I mean what are you into, road, cyclo-cross, crits, mountain bombing, city slicking? They even do e-bikes (pretty ones).

The Revelator forms the backbone of their road race range, 9 different derivatives are on offer, covering everything from the over weight anorak to the sharp and sleek semi-pro. One really cool feature is KTM is trying to introduce disc brakes into the road scene, why not? They also beefed up the bolt thru axles to cope with the extra twist introduced by the discs.

Cables are routed through the frame, the seat post is held with an integrated pin, the bike is really sleek and clean.

They're also big into Cyclo-Cross, winning several international titles way back in the 60's. Anyways they've got a new cyclo-cross mount on the market now called the Canic CXC. Again a carbon monocoque can be found, integrated cables, flat mounted hydraulic discs...

Really I could geek out and talk about bicycles the rest of the day, but there's work to be done and this has gone on long enough. Check out their website if you want to have a gander at their full range. Hardtail - KTM BIKE INDUSTRIES. In North America they're pricey and hard to find however, hey just like the motored kin...

Cabin Fever much, I'm writing to y'all about BICYCLES!!!

KTM 390 Duke Recall... Sorta.
Jun 03, 2014 - 11:06 AM - by Maverick

It appears that KTM is trying to quietly fix a problem with some of its KTM 390 Duke bikes without actually submitting a formal recall. They are instead calling it TI, or technical information.

Bikes built before March of this year may have their front sprocket misaligned, and as a result, the chain may come off the teeth. The problem was detected by KTM, and bikes built since March have proper front sprockets installed instead of the faulty ones.

KTM has not issued a formal recall because that is only done for "safety related issues," though I'm not exactly sure how the chain coming off is not a safety issue. Instead dealers are quietly fixing the problem during routine service operations.

KTm doesn't want to tell you, but luckily I am here to relay the news to you guys. If your 390 Duke was built before March, maybe you should think about taking it in to get things checked out.

KTM Will Offer Official Performance and Economy Mappings in India
Apr 28, 2014 - 11:20 AM - by Heizenberg

Interesting and exciting news coming from KTM India! Upon request, dealers will install factory-approved custom software to alter the performance of Duke machinery.

KTM will initially offer two new mappings for the Duke. The first one is a performance-oriented engine mapping, which will offer increased power and torque and adding to the bikes' nerve. This seems to be one of the most common modifications Indian KTM customers are looking forward to.

The increased performance will lower the overall mpg figures, but that isn't much to trade for losing your warranty. A second available mapping will be an economy-focused one, aimed at improving the mileage, while obviously reducing the overall power deployment and making the Dukes a bit more mellow, but offering more miles for the buck.

The mappings have a yet unknown price, and the warranty of the bikes will not be affected and in case defects occur, they will be treated as usual.

Pretty cool that you get a choice of different versions of the same bike. What mapping will you choose?
