    How many ktm quads in the United States?

    What’s going on guys . New to the form . Me and my buddy both own a ktm 450sx and I also own a ktm 505sx here in Florida. I’ve been wandering if anybody knows how many were sent to the United States?

    I remember reading a post claiming KTM north said ~700 sx’s and ~3,700 xc’s we’re shipped to the US. Take away however many are parted out or junked in crashes or whatever, maybe add a few where people ordered frames and built them like that.

    I drove 6 hours for mine.... I’ve seen two in OH where I ride, I don’t know anyone personally that has one.
    But I will say that as long as I can buy parts you would have to pry this thing from my cold dead hands!

    I think there is still limited demand for them. KTM should let their dealers special order them like once a year or something like that. Ill hang onto mine but if KTM would open it up I would be first in line.

    KTM seems like they wanted to forget they ever made quads, from what I understand they wiped their hands of the manufacturing plants immediately and haven’t talked about it since. I’m assuming they lost a LOT of money on the whole thing. Although I have been informed KTM themselves still assembles some of their quads for certain purposes.

    I have a 525XC and 505SX and I'm the original owner. The best quads ever made and I plan on keeping them as long as I can ride. Yeah, unfortunately KTM had a bad experience with quads. They came on the scene too late, right when the recession happened. Plus they were more expensive than the others by about 4 grand. Of course, the whole quad market has suffered since the recession. SXS have taken over. Now only Yamaha is making a 450, although I have heard rumors Honda has a new 450 ready and they are just waiting for the market to improve.

    What do you mean they "assemble quads for certain purposes?" Like what?

    Rally builds, as you can see they are quite different from the ones we know, however. How many ktm quads in the United States?-c297be4b-5c90-4a20-8b4e-422f82af2335.jpeg
