KTM INTRODUCES MY2020 SIX DAYS MODELS IN CANADA

Chambly, Quebec – KTM Canada, Inc. is proud to introduce its prestigious lineup of 2020 special edition Enduro models with the announcement of the all-new KTM 300 XC-W TPI SIX DAYS and KTM 500 EXC-F SIX DAYS models.

Developed on the toughest climbs, gnarliest terrain and in the deepest mud with KTM’s factory racing stars, the benchmark-setting KTM offroad and dual-sport machines have just raised the bar again for the 2020 lineup. This range of KTM EXC-F and XC-W TPI models boasts the very latest in innovation with new and more efficient high-performing engines, a re-developed chassis with improved WP XPLOR suspension, improved handling, new bodywork, new air filter box, new cooling system and new exhaust systems.

These features are combined with the high-quality premium parts package offered on the flagship KTM SIX DAYS models, making these the best competition machines on the market. With the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) at the core of the design of the SIX DAYS models, they celebrate the sport of enduro and have a wide range of well-thought out KTM PowerParts fitted over the standard KTM EXC-F and XC-W TPI models.

SIX DAYS MODELS

When it comes to offroad motorcycle racing, no other brand comes close to the success or even just the presence of KTM. And year after year, one of the events where this becomes especially plain is the biggest competition on the calendar, the International Six Days Enduro. From the humble beginnings of a few daring riders in the Scottish border region testing the mettle of what was then emerging technology, the ISDE has turned into the team world championship of the Enduro scene, with more than 500 riders from over 30 nations expected on the grid. This Enduro marathon demands as much from the bikes as it does from the riders, and year after year, more than half of them show up in Orange.

The 2019 International Six Days Enduro will be held in Portugal. The rocky terrain and the dusty and worn tracks are bound to once again place extreme demands on all brave riders and machines that take on the battle. No chain is stronger than its weakest link. Thus, compromise of any kind has no place in their equipment if they strive to even cross the finish line, much less emerge victorious from the ordeal with their compatriots and teammates.

KTM also once again rises to the challenge with the latest, limited SIX DAYS edition of extra-tough machines. Easily identified as premium models by their special SIX DAYS design, these bikes are also upgraded and equipped with an extended list of top-of-the-line components, specially designed and refined by KTM’s own research and development department for the exceptional event, making them the ultimate Enduro bikes.

Enduro takes centre stage as Chile hosts 93rd FIM ISDE

The FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) is ready to celebrate its ninety-third edition as the 2018 edition heads to Viña del Mar in Chile from 12-17 November. Regarded as one of the World’s most prestigious off-road motorcycle competitions, this year’s FIM ISDE will see over four-hundred professional and amateur riders from twenty-five nations compete. At the head of the entry, France look to defend both their FIM World Trophy and FIM Junior World Trophy titles, while Australia are aiming for a record-breaking sixth consecutive FIM Women’s World Trophy class win.

Returning to South America for the first time since 2014, Chile last played host to the FIM’s longest sanctioned race in 2007. Situated just two hours west of the nation’s capital Santiago, the picturesque city of Viña del Mar, nestled along the beautiful Pacific Ocean, will be home to the world’s best Enduro riders for six days of exciting, action-packed racing.

Offering a mixture of sandy coastal riding and rocky forestry terrain, organisers have planned three unique and challenging routes to fully test this year’s FIM ISDE competitors. The opening two days will see riders tackle the aptly named Pacific Challenge situated along the coastline north of the city. During days three and four the race moves inland to uncover a contrasting mixture of rocky terrain. Adding further spice to the proceedings a forestry course - Peñuelas Lake and Wood - awaits riders on day five before the sixth and final day of racing concludes with the traditional Motocross test in front of the Pacific Ocean in Viña del Mar. In total over fourteen hundred kilometres will be covered during this year’s event.

Ready to successfully defend their FIM World Trophy title, France arrive to Chile with only thoughts of glory on their mind. Following victory on home soil in 2017, they will be pushing hard to shine again in 2018. Eager to end their eleven-year drought, Italy’s last taste of FIM World Trophy success came in Chile in 2007. Looking strong on paper, they will use that as added motivation to return to the top step of the podium. Following their debut FIM ISDE victory in 2016, the United States know they have the speed to challenge for top honours. Likewise, 2015 champions Australia will be equally determined. The Czech Republic, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile are among those who will fight for a place inside the top five.

In what was arguably the closest fought category in 2017, the FIM Junior World Trophy class once again is set to be a competitive affair. Last year France claimed a narrow fifteen-second margin of victory over Italy, with the United States third. The three nations will meet once again in Chile all hoping to prove that they are the fastest Junior Enduro riders in the world. Keen to dispute that, Chile, led by newly crowned FIM Enduro Youth World Champion Ruy Barbosa (Husqvarna), have a very strong chance of finishing on the podium in their home race. Australia, Argentina, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Sweden are all capable of delivering strong results.

As defending champions Australia bid for a record-breaking sixth consecutive win in the FIM Women’s World Trophy category. All told, they have been unstoppable since securing their first victory in Sardinia, Italy back in 2012. For 2018, long-serving rider Tayla Jones (Husqvarna) and Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha) are joined by debutante Mackenzie Tricker (KTM), who replaces the recently retired Jemma Wilson. Eager to keep their winning streak alive, they aim to hold off the attacks from France, United States, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Chile.

The FIM ISDE takes place in Viña del Mar, Chile from 12-17 November.
