2017 KTM 500 EXC-F
« on: December 31, 2016, 07:47:06 PM »
Hey All,

First time poster!  Looking forward to getting to know some local dual-sport folks. Had the opportunity today to un-crate my 2017 KTM 500 at Woody's Cycles. Unfortunately the bike activation system was down today and KTM was closed for the holidays so I wasn't able to start it or to take it home. Anyways, some pics from today. Can't wait for spring!!!

Welcome to the forum.
By 'dual-sport' you mean hooligan, right?  :evil6:

That's interesting, didn't know they had that level of control on the electronics.  Presumably they can be disabled in the same manner?

I assume they could but only a dealer would be able to do it. The activation computer is connected to the bike via a ethernet cable I think. It's not like they could disable to bike remotely. It gives KTM a great fool proof way of knowing when the 6 month warranty begins. Great theft deterrent as well. (theft when the bikes are being shipped from KTM)

BMW does the same thing.

The bike is locked to the break in program until it is unlocked by the dealer at the first service.

You'll do just fine around here.  Welcome.
Well it's not a Kawasaki...... so if your expectations are low you'll be fine.

Looks like fun. I got a DR650 which isn't as dual-sport as the EXC500, but does the trick.
