I suspect it's more of a case that anything 'electronic' can go wrong.

Great news and hopefully it is that simple. You must be chuffed to bits with a brand new bike. Enjoy it as much as you can :-)

And how do you feel about the change from the S10 to the KTM. Happy with your choice ? I am about to do the same. Did a test ride on the 1290 and it is indeed :woohoo: but that is only after a half an hour testride. Anything you like to share...welcome
