2004 KTM 640 Adventure R from Ecuador
I've been riding this bike for just a few months!
I'm new with motorbikes. This was a second hand purchase, and I'll be happy doing a 6000 km trip with it during my vacation!
Left rear turn light broke, clock does not appear anymore!
Accelerating, I thought it was a "bull", but for me it's alright that way!
I like it performing on-off road, both are this bike's habitat.
Nevertheless, I'd rather use it off road, works nice!
New sprocket (less teeth) and dual-purpose tires let you ride on the highway easily over 110 km/h.
Lots of accessories and gadgets offer to set it as a RTW bike!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know

While I wrote this, I had a bad feeling with my KTM dealer in Spain. I got to another city and it was worse.
Back in my country, it seems that the service of KTM dealer was better, even if I knew since day 1 that the spares were expensive. One weekend my gasket blew-up, have to sell my soul to get the new spares.
Asked in USA dealer, service was worst.
I'm disappointed, I'd rather have a Honda! Seems that if you don't have a tattoo on your neck, you're not going to be paid any attention in the store!!!
Seems also that my 6400 km adventure will be done on a Japanese make!
Auf wiedersehen orange crush!

Things can only get better!
Found spares, did my Adventure (2b sincere 4800km) with this LC4 bike made in Austria & it did awesome!
Almost every weekend and sometimes during the week I'm having a lot of fun with this KTM. By the end of the year I'm planning another trip 2up. I have to tell you that a guy I found riding around the world on the same bike has done more than 350k miles with NO PROBLEM during the past years, only a few basic things!

Just as an upgrade, at 35000 km I had problems with a piston. This is a second-hand bike and I don't know how it was used and maintained before. I've been riding it for 25000 km. I bought the spare (abroad as always) and I will keep it - if things go right - one or two extra years. Clutch pump, checked suspension, new brake pads and other spares changed!
Has anyone used this bike after performing the above mentioned repair?
