Motorbike information

KTM 350 EXC-F SIX DAYS

KTM is often recognized as an absolute reference in the world of motorbikes, all categories combined. The Austrian brand is particularly distinguished in the field of enduro during the International Enduro Six Days (ISDE), or more than half of the drivers rolled in KTM. It is this marathon of two wheels inspired by the KTM 350 EXC-F SIX DAYS characterized by the robustness of the chassis and the versatility of the engine. Moto Tour Madagascar's choice was therefore focused on this bike whose spirit, in a nutshell, is as follows: the agility of 250, the power of 450.

KTM 450 EXC-F SIX DAYS

KTM’s concept is never as well illustrated as the 450 version of its EXC-F SIX DAYS range. Using the same equipment and the same configuration as the younger 350, she embarked a much more powerful and nervous engine while maintaining a welcome handling ergonomics. Making of a perfect ready to start in class. It is for all these qualities that Moto Tour Madagascar's chose for their circuits and for the wishing pilots.
