It is seriously leaving such a bad taste in my mouth that Ktm are swooping in and destroying a brilliant motorcycle in favour of another jelly mould of a Ktm.
Right with you on this bru!

Parts are still available for the Italian Husqvarna's thru KTM/Husqvarna. The tech trainer in Temecula came from the old Husqvarna and provides help for those bikes and they keep the FI scan tool to send to dealers for those bikes. I don't know very much about those bikes but I regularly get parts for some pretty old units.

I think the worry of parts availability is a bit over blown. In the US they are required by law to make and sell parts for a minimum of 10 years. Since Gas Gas has used a lot of same components for so long even the older bikes should still have parts available.

That never happens though! They rely on people getting frustrated & giving up & buying new. They just say it's on backorder continually until they get a decent number of requests then maybe they'll do a run. Who's gonna enforce it anyway?
Parts in Australia weren't great at the best of times

Indeed a lot of parts are still available but there's plenty of bike stoppers ya can't get any more.

I hear people say this. Do you have proof of this law? I've never seen it. Also if a company ceases to exist as it was before then I'm not sure its possible. All that to say I have no issues getting parts from the aftermarket for my 20 year old gasgas

I know in the automotive world, they have to provide parts and service for ten years.
I have never found this to be true.

i suspect this is the loophole. Probably need to provide 10 years of parts if its still the same company. how do you force a bancrupt company for example to remain open for 10 years. BUT gasgas still exists so maybe not a problem!

Those of you who feel very strongly about this should just stock up on barrels and pistons and other gasgas specific parts as an investment to sell on later
