2013 KTM SX 350 F

I have heard anecdotally that the RC8 is ineedd a POS in racing circles. As an ownership prospect, at least in Australia they cost a fortune to own and operate. Mechanics warned me before I bought an Adventure about the well known waterpump and electrical issues, and that KTM stood for Keep Taking Money Fellow riding buddy has a month old RC8 that blew its gearbox out through the crankcase last weekend. He is less than impressed. It was lucky neither he or any others in the riding group behind him went down in all the oil.I would go short of saying these are disastrously unreliable though. That is reserved for anything BMW these days.
