In a first for KTM Australia, the Austrian motorcycling manufacturer is bringing its entire 2011 motocross range, and 2010 enduro range to dirt tracks around Australia for the public to demo at – KTM Dirt Days.

In the motocross range highlight motorcycles will include the 2011 model 250, 350, and 450 SXF machines, while in the enduro range the 2010 two stroke and four strokes will be amongst the mix with highlights being the 300 EXC two stroke and 450 EXC four stroke.

The KTM Dirt Days calendar will unfold as follows:

VIC - 20 June, Monza Park, Ballarat
SA – 26 June, Murray Bridge, Callington
QLD – 3 July, Green Park, Conondale
NSW – 25 July, Appin, Macarthur MCC
WA – 1 August, Tumbulgum Farm, Byford

The format for KTM Dirt Days is not about racing, but putting each model through its paces at the level of each individual rider in an environment their built for; being dirt tracks and trails.

Riders can demo selected models on the marked tracks and trails in three two hour time slots throughout each KTM Dirt Day. Time slots are 9am to 11am - 11am to 1pm, and 1pm to 3pm, with registration half an hour prior.

Basic requirements for participation include full safety gear e.g. helmet, jacket, pants, gloves and enclosed shoes or boots, and riders must sign up for a MA one day license, if they don’t already hold a MA competition license.

To participate in KTM Dirt Days, all riders must register on-line at www.ktm.com.au, where three bikes can be selected in order of preference to demo. Further terms and conditions apply and can be viewed on-line.

  1. The KTM 450 EXC is slightly larger then its younger brother the KTM 250 EXC. It carries a 449cc engine putting out 50 horsepower. This bike is all about the engine. even though this bike is slightly larger then the smaller counterpart, it stills feel nimble and agile. This bike was designed for the veteran rider though a beginner can still ride this bike with little trouble.
