We wanted to show our customers what their KTM ADVENTURE motorcycles are capable of off the beaten track. We wanted to create a scene of like-minded riders, sparking friendships and spectacular memories. And we wanted to ride roads that you wouldn’t imagine existed in Europe. Not an easy feat, but – judging from the big, dusty grins on people’s faces – we are very proud to say that the first European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY delivered.

Featuring three daily tours across three different terrains, ranging from 100% paved road to 100% offroad and one 50/50 option, riders were met with challenges that suited their riding style and preferences; climbing mountains, roaring down passes and even conquering snow. Every night, 152 adventurers descended to the Bardonecchia base camp to exchange their stories, share their adventures and reminisce with fellow KTM riders and our blazing fast ambassador, Chris Birch.

Chris Birch:It’s impressive how the R performs a balancing act between being a never-ending offroad travel bike and a powerful enduro that knows no limits. To take it on a KTM ADVENTURE RALLY reminds me why I started riding bikes. For fun.

At KTM, we are fascinated by the extraordinary, driven by relentless curiosity and always up for a two-wheeled adventure.
