Team Orange: Ready to pounce

Will they get it this time? The all-orange Dutch squad will line up using powerful KTM offroad bikes in the MX of Nations; the country versus country motocross race that kicks off on Sunday at Matterley Basin.



“A pure Motocross bike …” talking about the factory KTM 450 SX-F

When Tony Cairoli crossed the finish line at the Dutch Grand Prix earlier this month he completed the set for the KTM 450 SX-F: AMA Supercross, Motocross and now the MXGP title. We asked one of the technicians at the forefront of the bike’s development in Grand Prix about the journey …

The Cup from Hell

The North Loop (“Nordschleife”) of the Nurburgring is one of the most famous, and probably the most notorious, of all race tracks in the world. The Nordschleife itself is more than 21 kilometers in length, but if we include the grand-prix circuit completed during the 80s, then a complete lap extends over 24 kilometers.

#inthisyear1997: KTM presents the first LC4-ADVENTURE

Those who want to travel far and fast don’t need a lot, but they do need the best. KTM builds ADVENTURE series bikes for touring enthusiasts, and has been doing so for precisely 20 years now. At KTM, ADVENTURE means much more than a big tank or a chrome-plated exhaust, and bikes adorned with stickers reminiscent of Rally successes – ADVENTURE has been KTM’s philosophy since 1997, back when the 640 LC4 ADVENTURE made its debut.
