KTM Adventure Rally Returns for 2018

The KTM Adventure Rally is an exciting opportunity for KTM Adventure owners to ride some incredible terrain in Europe with other like minded owners/riders. There are only 150 spots available, so don’t sleep on this one…

Begin Press Release:


December 11, 2017 – KTM is excited to announce the second installment of the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY will be held in Sardinia at the end of June 2018.

A KTM ADVENTURE RALLY is for those who want to fully embrace the KTM READY TO RACE spirit, sharing tarmac and dirt passes in incredible surroundings to form lasting friendships and unforgettable memories with likeminded riders – including KTM ambassadors and employees – and will be exclusive to the first 150 KTM ADVENTURE-owning riders who sign up.

Complementing existing established KTM ADVENTURE events that have taken place annually in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and South Africa, 2017 saw the first European staging in Bardonecchia. The exclusive group of riders got to experience incredible road and offroad riding in the mountainous area of Northern Italy. Following customer feedback, the beautiful island of Sardinia has been chosen for 2018 for the KTM ADVENTUREs to conquer its incredible variety of endless sea view sandy trails, twisty mountain passes and even extreme offroad routes with unexplored terrain.

Florian Burguet (Managing Director KTM Europe): “The goal of KTM ADVENTURE RALLIES is to bring together riders off all abilities who share KTM’s unique adventure spirit and who want to exploit the performance of their machines to create unforgettable experiences. The first European rally was a big success and following feedback from those who attended and our own experience, the venue for 2018 shifts from the mountains of Italy to the beautiful island of Sardinia. For the lucky 150 KTM ADVENTURE riders who confirm their place, it will present them with a wide range of stunning roads and paths to explore while simultaneously providing the kind of unrivaled experiences a KTM ADVENTURE motorcycle was created to provide.”

Fully organized by KTM, the three-day guided rally is tailored to suit all rider abilities – from first year ADVENTURE riders up to seasoned ADVENTURE professionals – and is open to just 150 places for owners of the following KTM bikes: 640, 690, 950, 990, 1050, 1090, 1190 & 1290 ADVENTURE models.

Registration opens at the beginning of 2018 at www.ktm-adventure-rally.com with more details to follow shortly on the entire content of the event.
