Of all the demo days I have attended, KTM seemingly appears to be the only manufacturer that offers an off-road demo tour.
KTM Canada announced today the dates and locations of their annual Ride Orange Moto Tour. I attended last year’s event at Bear Creek in West Kelowna and it didn’t take long for line ups of riders to form to get their chance on a bike.
The event kicks off April 20th and runs through May 30th in both the East and the West. There are more than 20 demo rides across the country. The fleet offers brand new 2013 KTM motocross (SX), off-road XC) and dual sport bikes (EXC).
This is your chance to experience a KTM 450 SX-F—the bike that 2012 AMA Motocross champion Ryan Dungey and Roger DeCoster developed, or feel young again ripping it up a new KTM two-stroke. From 150cc to 500cc, motocross and off-road, you’ll get your hands on a little bit of everything at a Ride Orange event.
Those interested in attending a KTM demo ride event may sign up through a participating Canadian KTM dealer.
What to expect at a Ride Orange Moto Tour:
- A mix of brand new, 2013 KTM MX, off-road and dual sport models (SX / XC/ EXC)
- Mechanical + parts support
- KTM dealer + corporate staff
- Special appearances from KTM factory MX & off-road racers
- Riders must be 18 years or older, wear proper safety and riding gear and hold a valid driver’s license.
