What is KTMOBD:
KTMOBD programmer was born for reading chip data, reading and writing data of ECUs and a few types of gearbox. Read/write data by OBD.
What is KTM Flash:
KTMFlash ECU programmer can read the chip data, read & write ECU data. read transmission data etc. at a high speed.
Look here: KTM bench boot vs. KTMOBD vs. KTM Flash

(no need to open the cover)
|via OBD||Most ECUs need to be disassembled for r/w|
|ECU disassemble||NO||NO||Most yes!|
|Gearbox or transmission read/write||NO||Yes, only a few||Yes|
|Vehicle coverage||KTM bench car list (Note 1)||KTMOBD car list (Note 2)||KTM FLASH car list (Note 3)|
All programming tools above can be used for ECU read and write, but differs in ECU coverage and r/w method. There is NO LIMITS of the car model and year when using KTM bench to read/write data.
But if you have chips and gearboxes to read and write, you should have a KTM flash. The bad is: disassembling is required. KTM bench doesn’t cover chips and gearboxes and KTM OBD cannot not work good for gerabox r/w.
FYI, you’d better check the ECU/gearbox/chip before your purchase.
