Try before you buy – UK test days on 2013 range of off-road KTMs

KTM UK is holding a series of try-out days for riders to sample the class-leading performance of its 2013 range of Motocross (SX) and Enduro (EXC) machines, which comprises of an incredible 26 models.

Working in conjunction with its UK dealers and some of the countries top off-road facilities, KTM is offering riders the chance to ‘try before they buy’ as a new bike is a big commitment and riders need to know what exactly what has changed and how it rides.

The KTM SX range has seen major updates for 2013, especially the 250, 350 and 450 four-strokes machines developed in conjunction with KTM’s factory race teams, leading their respective World and AMA Motocross championships.

For the 2013 EXC range, the KTM Development Centre has also advanced the range without compromise. All existing models have received detailed improvements in all of the important areas. The mission is to offer all EXC four and two-stroke riders a better enduro combination of riding fun, performance, responsiveness and durability.

The try-out sessions are either specially organised events by the dealer which participants can book on to via the organising dealer at a nominal charge, or they will take place at existing practice days, where participants can also book on the day to test a KTM model free of charge, subject to availability.

The test day schedule is increasing weekly, so check back here or at for an up to date list.
