Murrieta, CA - KTM North America, Inc is proud to announce its 2008 KTM Adventure Tours program sponsors. Following in the footsteps of the successful KTM Adventure Tours program already established in locations around the world, the 2008 KTM North American Tours program has several unique tour offerings that segment it from traditional North American motorcycle tour companies. Its sponsor program is second to none with support from many leading aftermarket product manufacturers.
The 2008 sponsor list is as follows: FMF, Dunlop, Motorex, Motion Pro, Ogio, Braking, Sunstar, Arai, Alpinestars, Smith Sport Optics, RK, Excel, Precision Concepts and KTM Hard Equipment.
“We are proud to have such a strong working relationship with each of our sponsors,” reported Scot Harden, KTM North America Tour Director on the 2008 sponsor line-up. The 2008 sponsor list consists of sponsors that have been with the tour since its introduction in the U.S, with the exception of the latest addition of Braking and Sunstar.
Harden, a multi-time Baja 1000, Rally champion and Dakar veteran directs the KTM North American Tour operation. “In the past two years we have established a great series of tours backed by an outstanding group of sponsors,” stated Harden, whose extensive off-road knowledge ensures that the tours are as authentic and pure as all existing KTM Tours throughout the world. He continued, “We’re very fortunate to have so many industry icons riding along with us. Their support and that of our sponsors, is what makes KTM Adventure Tours so successful.”
The 2008 KTM North American Adventure Tour season features tours in the Mojave National Preserve, Mammoth High Sierras, Italy Enduro riding tours, special event tours connected to select Supercross and EnduroCross events, and the popular Mike Lafferty Enduro School.
KTM Adventure Tours was established over twelve years ago from KTM’s world headquarters in Mattighofen, Austria. The tours are designed to provide specially guided motorcycle trips throughout the most exotic landscapes in the world for on-road and off-road motorcycle enthusiasts. KTM Adventure Tours provide insider tips to help riders become better at what they love to do – ride.
