In Austria, Off-Road by AbhiLeave a Comment

You’re either going to look at this bike and drool, or wonder what the big deal is. If you fall in the latter camp, here’s a refresher of how KTM came to be in the US, thanks in no small part to John Penton. If you’re in the former camp, just scroll down to the for sale listing and snap it up!

Built to celebrate KTM’s 30th anniversary, a limited run of these Jackpiners (some consider them to basically be a prototype of the 200MXC) was released with unique blue plastics, Ohlins forks, an Ohlins PDS shock, a hydraulic clutch, and a whole bunch of trinkets, including a mug, a t-shirt, and a certificate of authenticity. This is a highly sought after, hard to find bike for KTM fans. Will it end up in your collection? Or do you think it’s much ado about nothing?

This example (VIN: VBKEXJ201VM200274) was purchased from Moto Armory in 2020 and the seller spent $2,192 to “make it perfect…to bring to my standards.” The seller is letting it go to buy a Penton.

Find this Jackpiner for sale in Athol, Idaho with an unmet opening bid of $5,500 or a BIN of $11,500 here on eBay.
