You either have a stolen bike that has part of the vin filed down or a pre 1981 KTM.

In 1981 the NHTSA required all vehicles to have a standard, 17-character vehicle identification number, or VIN. Since then, automakers all over the world have adopted the VIN. Before 1981, the system manufacturers assigned VINs anywhere from 11 to 17 digits/characters.
