Some weird circumstances have lead to me selling a brand new, zero mile 2016 KTM 1290 Super Duke R. See below for story.
2016 KTM 1290 Super Duke RMileage: 0 Miles!
Software: Has the Akra Evo map. Aka the coveted unobtanium map that cant be installed by dealers in California (I got the guys in Seattle to install before shipping)
Exhaust: Full Titanium Akropovic Evo Race system (+12hp, -15lbs)
So far I have gotten around to removing the SAS, installing block off plates, and putting in the High-Flo K&N filter
The pipes themselves arent on it yet
Diet: Coming from a 690 I wanted to drop some LBs, so I put a matte carbon fiber front fender (have original) and Shorai LI battery (still in box)
Looks: I ordered an integrated LED tail light (still in box)
Warranty: 1 Year (started two weeks ago)
Here is what I have paid in the last 10 days for this bike:
OTD on the bike: $12,790
Akra Exhaust: $2,549
Aka Map install: $100
Carbon Front Fender: $212 (on bike, have stock)
LED integrated tail light: $170 (not on bike yet)
Shorai battery: $195 (not on bike yet)
Total Ive paid: $16,016
PRICE: $14,500 to move fast. Firm.
Test rides: No test rides. Whoever buys this bike will be getting it as new, with zero miles on it. If theres a problem, it will be under warranty.
The story: Roughly two months ago, my 2017 690 Duke was stolen. After waiting the obligatory couple weeks, I went into the settlement process with Geico. At a certain point, I was told I would have my settlement in two weeks, so I started looking for a new bike. Ten days into this two weeks I found an amazing deal - a brand new SDR in Seattle was being sold for $6,000 under MSRP! As it was a matter of days before I got my settlement I went ahead and bought it, not wanting to loose out on a great deal.
And in my excitement I thought to myself, what does a new SDR need? To lose weight! So I ordered the Full Akropovic Evo Titanium exhaust system, a Shorai LI battery, and some carbon fiber from Europe.
Fast forward two days, on the last day I was supposed to get my settlement, Geico tells me they are launching an investigation, and need 30 more days. Ok", I thought to myself., it will just be a delay in getting my money, not a problem. Then, on the day I meet with the Geico rep to do an interview, as were meeting, SFPD calls to say theyve found my bike, and its in pretty good shape. Geico immediately says theyve approved the claim and will pay out, and Im getting my bike back.
So now, Im stuck with two awesome bikes (the 690 is all setup) and only need (can afford) one. Im putting both bikes up for sale, and keeping the one that doesnt sell first.
If youre reading this and are interested in the 690, posting will go up once Scuderia has installed a new ignition.
I know this is a weird story, but Ive got all the paperwork that backs it up, and Im happy to discuss in more detail with anyone who is seriously interested.
