Hi all,

Just got my first KTM a brand new Super Duke GT with touring package.

It is being delivered next week, looking forward to having a play :D

Happy new year Tmation and welcome.

While waiting for your little moped.....you can read up on the forum for all the tricks. Brand new GT's can be very tight until they settle in but holy smoke batman......they have horsepower from day one ;)

I'll take a guess and assume you also will not want the tyre pressure warning screen distracting you on your travels......so ask the dealer to re-set the low pressure triggers or turn them off (but keep the TPMS system active so you can check pressures 8-) )........in your climate, I think KTM's pressures (36f 42r) are too high and may cause lack of grip on a lightweight high horsepower weapon (used sensibly for gentlemanly touring officer... ;) ).

Thanks for the info Aussie Dave, I have read something about the TPMS and tyre pressures being to high.

Still waiting for delivery, the dealer is a fair way away.

I bought from them because they had one of the preregistered ones with £5,000 discount :D
