KTM's 'try-before-you-buy' off-road experience

1 of 3

KTM will be running a month-long off-road experience aimed at riders who are considering buying one of the firm’s 2017 motocross bikes.

The try-out test days are not aimed at novice riders but those who are looking at buying one of the range of KTM SX bikes which stretch from 125cc through to 450cc and include two-stroke and four-stroke engines.

The entire SX range was upgraded this year to include mechanical changes to the engine and chassis but also to include traction control and launch control.


KTM say: “Aimed at experienced motocross riders only from age 15 and over, each Experience Day runs six separate sessions, with individual riders able to book on to a maximum of two sessions, costing £60 for one or £90 for two places. The day starts with technical training on the SX machine, followed by a riders briefing and then 60 mins of open riding time on an exclusive track. Every attendee will have at their disposal a freshly prepared SX model along with a KTM technician and WP suspension expert to allow the machine to be finely tuned to the individual’s riding style and preferences.”
