KTM launches warranty extension and demo ride drive

Service-activated warranty extensions are becoming common for manufacturers keen to keep owners within their dealer networks. The offers are simple enough: get your bike serviced at an official franchise each year, and you’ll get another year’s manufacturer’s warranty, sometimes for as long as seven years/70,000 miles, as with Suzuki UK. They give dealers and manufacturers the chance to tempt owners back from the independent sector, bringing business advantages including cash flow through the workshop and the opportunity to up-sell accessories, parts, kits, or even a new bike.

And now KTM UK has joined the party, giving owners of its 2024 LC8c-engined models (the 790 and 890 parallel twins) a maximum four years warranty with official servicing, while the bigger 1290 and 1390 V-twins can go to three years.

The Austrian brand has also launched its new season demo rides campaign, with KTM Orange Day events offering rides on the full range across the firm’s dealer network. More info is on the KTM website,
