KTM has announced the launch of a range of exciting riding events and experiences for KTM motorcycles’ owners. This includes the KTM Adventure Tours, which are long-distance tours guided by experts covering varied terrains and locations, KTM Rides – essentially long weekends covering iconic destinations – mixing touring and tarmac thrills, and KTM Track Day, which as the name suggests consists of a day of learning at the track with track riding sessions with racing experts.
KTM has roped in Master Trainers – established riders and specialists at riding on the trails, tarmac and track – to guide its owners through these experiences. These experts will be the guiding force behind these programs, joining the owners on these Pro Experiences to share their skills and experiences. These Master Trainers include prominent names like Nilesh Dhumal (famously known as ‘Nelly’) – Head Trainer at BigRock Dirt Park, Ouseph Chacko – Founder and Instructor at The School of Dirt, Philippe Geelhand – Founder and Instructor at PP Adventure Rides and Varad More – Trainer at 21 Enduro Park as the Master Trainers for the Adventure properties. Finally, for tarmac and track, KTM has roped in Emmanuel Jebaraj – Founder, Gusto Racing and a seven-time National Racing Champion – as the Master Trainer.
Side note: Considering two of the Master Trainers (Ouseph Chacko and Varad More) were with formerly Fast Bikes India, we can't help feel just a bit proud!
Speaking on the occasion Sumeet Narang, president (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto, said “KTM is the most loved European motorcycling brand among the biking enthusiasts in India and we would like to provide world-class pro-biking experiences to our customers. When they buy a KTM, they would not only get an outstanding machine but also get access to pro-experiences on track, adventure or street. We are delighted to announce our first set of Pro-Experiences as well as welcome Nilesh Dhumal, Philippe Geelhand, Ouseph Chacko, Varad More and Emmanuel Jebaraj as Master Trainers and programme designers. As an introductory delight, 1000 lucky customers buying a KTM between October 17 and November 30 will get complementary Pro-Experiences.”
Additionally, every KTM will come with an assured 3-year Extended Warranty, and 1-year free Road-side Assistance all worth Rs 5000.
