Very good idea!

I'll start: here in the north of Italy there is "Spazio Moto" in Castel San Giovanni (PC)... They are not an authorized KTM assistance point, but they know _very_well_ the orange bikes(especially 4-strokes).

Unfortunately I had just bad experiences with authorized KTM mechanics here in Italy: too expensives with little know-how!

In Spain I had 3 good experiences with KTM official dealers: Caspe (Zaragoza)(MOTO CASPE - CAPELLAN N 24 - 50700 CASPE), Madrid (SECOMOTO S.A. - ATOCHA N 90 - 28012 MADRID) and Granada (J.J: EXPO-MOTO S.L. - CAMINO DE RONDA N 24 - 18006 GRANADA).

Very pleasant, polite, doing their job perfectly and, last but not least, unexpensives.

Hai,

KTM dealer in the Netherlands, very good service, friendly people.

Brouwer Motors
Zwartebroek

On highway A1 take exit "Hoevelaken" near "Amersfoort".
Folow signs to "Terschuur"
After you leave the town (Hoevelaken) you have to turn left in a bend. There is a sign "Zwartebroek".
When you enter the town (Zwartebroek) just folow the road until it bend to the right and you can still go straight. Go straight, after 25 mtr on the right you'll see it. It is small, but good.

Ljubljana, Slovnia.

Official KTM Dealer (but I could not see any bikes). Uri the mechanic speaks English and, like most Slovenians, is friendly & v. helpful. If he can't fix, I'm sure he knows a man who can.

It's on the south side of the city approx., 6k on Trzaska Street (a main road). The garage is located on the laft hand side of the street as you leave the city. They also sell cars.

Name: Tik Tak Avto
Address: Trzaska 135, 1000 Ljubljana Vic
Tel: 01 256 1660
Fax: 01 256 1667

Costs: Approx $16 per hour Labour + parts.

Regards
James

Istanbul, Turkey.

Last KTM Garage before a long way east! Speak to Selcuk, the owner in the Showroom or Bulent, the service manager in the workshop. Head Mechanic: Hussain (Supports Galatasary & likes to sing out load - not a bad voice).

True Turkish hospitality with a spattering of Turkish chaos thrown in for good measure. The mechanics are excellent & very inventive & resourceful. Despite language difficulties (use Bulent) they have a great sense of humour & care about you & your bike. Copious amounts of tea will be served & if you're around at lunchtime, you might be treated to a fine lunch with the boys. At the end of the work your dirty bike will come back gleaming after the compulsory wash & blow dry.

I would advise that when specifying the work required to Bulent, make sure this is clearly transferred to the mechanics. All work will be completed in the end, but as the garage is located about 15k's east on the Asian side, a return trip can be a drag.

Location: Approach from either east or west on the D100. If coming from European Istanbul - check out the Karakoy-Harem Ferry which can save time & long route on Bosphorus bridge - Harem is the start of the D100. Ride for about 15k's avoiding everything that swerves or toots at you, and you will see the 'Maltepe' sign. Follow this road towards for about 1.5ks through the streets (it will become a one way street) and at the 1st traffic lights to a main road, take a right. Continue up the hill for about 1.5'ks and at the 2nd set of traffic lights you will see a Peugot Garage on the left. Take the left at these lights as the workshop is around the back.

Cost: Nov 2001 - 10,000,000 TR Lira or $6.5 per hour labour + Tip. Parts - European prices.

Name: Demaks Motor ve Servis Hizmetleri (Also Ducati, Trimumph & CCM dealership).
Workshop Address: Bagdat Caddesi (Street) No. 12, Adatepe, Maltepe, Istanbul.

Tel: 0216 442 1580
Fax: 0216 442 2380

Showroom Tel (Selcuk): 0216 418 7750

James

Not a KTM authorised dealer (It's an LML dealership actually - an Indian mfr) or anything, but a friendly, helpful bunch who have competent mechanics who will work under your supervision (or alongside). They may also ply you with Chai and may even buy you lunch too! Very, very good prices too.

Sydney, Australia

Highway Performance Bikes,
309 Princes Highway,
NSW 2216

Tel +61 (0)2 9599 0011
Fax +61 (0)2 9599 0013

These guys (and gals) are the largest and main KTM dealership/workshop in Sydney. totally KTM, loads of mainly off-road bikes. Friendly and informative. No costs as such but probably cheaper than europe & us. In general bikes seem to cost about 20% less than UK.

Located in Rockdale/Banksia suburb on Princes Highway - about 10km/6m south of the city on 'Route 66!!', located on the right hand side of the road. They also have a sister-breakers who may be able to source cheap parts.

Regards
James
