KTM, Husky Offering Extended Warranty For Most Street-Legal Models


KTM and Husqvarna have announced an extended warranty for most of their street-legal motorcycles in Canada, for bikes based off the LC8c and LC8 engines.

The LC8c is the parallel twin that powers the 790-series, 890-series, 901-series and 990-series models. The LC8 engine is the V-twin that powers the 1290 and 1390 series. Under KTM’s warranty plan, some of these bikes will get their warranties extended by one year; others will see their warranties extended by two years. To take advantage of this offer, owners must take their bike to a KTM dealer for a scheduled service. Do that, and you’ll get your warranty extension at no charge.

Some details from KTM:

2024 bikes with the LC8c and the LC8 engine specs currently fall under a 24-month warranty window for non-“R” models and a 12-month warranty window for “R” models from the take-into-use date. The fresh offer from Europe’s largest powered two-wheeler manufacturer will extend this by either one year or two years, depending on the model.

2024 KTM LC8c non-“R” models include the KTM 790 DUKE, KTM 790 ADVENTURE, KTM 890 SMT and the new KTM 990 DUKE. Customers that have official services performed within the 24-month warranty period can extend the protection until the next service, up to a maximum of 4 years. The LC8c “R” range includes the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R and KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY. Owners of these machines can extend their 12-month warranty to another 12 months of coverage when a scheduled service is performed, for a maximum of 2 years from the initial take-into-use date.

The 2024 KTM LC8 non-“R” range (KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S) can increase from 24 months to a maximum of 3 years from the initial take-into-use date. The LC8 “R” model range (KTM 1390 SUPER DUKE R EVO, KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R) can extend from 12 months to an additional 12 months for a maximum of 2 years from the initial take-into-use date.

Call your local dealer if you want more details. And if you’re a Husqvarna owner, you’ll find basically the same details on the Husky website here. As their website says: “The 2024 Norden 901, Norden 901 Expedition and Svartpilen 801 can all have their standard warranty extended from 24 months until the next service, up to a maximum of four years from the initial take-into-use date.
