990 ADVENTURE
More displacement, any amount of performance and still massive torque coupled with minimal weight. The new motor management with electronic fuel injection (EFI) is convincing with its excellent rideablity while the regulated catalyser ensures minimal emissions. And the newly developed ABS has taken the fear out of braking hard. All in all the KTM 990 Adventure, with its ultra modern technology and exclusive design, delivers unlimited riding pleasure.

990 ADVENTURE S
The 990 Adventure S is impressive proof of just how sporty a street enduro can be. The chassis is even more extreme than the sister bike, the 990 Adventure, while the new engine has more displacement and electronic fuel injection. The “Dakar

Reigning FIM Enduro 3 World Champion and AMA Endurocross title winner KTM Enduro Factory Team Farioli rider David Knight got his ’06 season off to a winning start by dominating the second running of the WOR organized The KTM Tough One, staged at Nantmawr Quarry, Oswestry on January 21.

Starting at the rear of the 30 rider strong Premier class having had to run up a steep hill before sprinting 300 meters to get to his bike, Knighter needed just over 30 minutes to make his way to the front of the race, a position he held until the finish. Completing 17 laps David finished one full lap ahead of his nearest rival.

Reigning British Trials Champion originating from Folkestone, Kent, Graham Jarvis tried his skills at a new sport at the weekend. Jarvis who was competing on board the Sherco 4.5i Enduro bike took an outstanding 4th place in only his second Enduro event. The event aptly named 'The Tough One' sponsored by KTM really tested the ability of the 30 riders entered including that of Jarvis.

Up against the likes of current World Enduro Champion David Knight and former World Enduro Champion Paul Edmondson, plus no less than eight top ten British Enduro riders Jarvis certainly had his work cut out over the physical course set out by Steve Ireland and his crew at WOR.

From KTM Press

Australian Repsol KTM rider Andy Caldecott fatally crashed on the 9th stage of the Dakar (Nouakchott – Kiffa).

The accident happened directly after the day off. This information has totally shocked us, we’re at a loss for words.

The terrible accidents in the past 2 years caused us to start with mixed feelings and question our rally engagement. The presenters of the Dakar have tried to make the rally safer together with several manufacturers. A tempo limit has been adopted, a GPS system which enables each rider to be located and to allow him to communicate with the presenter. Riders can have more rests now due to shorter tank stops. A pretty sportive rally until yesterday’s day of rest eclipsed the pain of the past - today we were brutally pulled out of our dream to make this rally safe.

The Dark Side of The Moon

For the 7th stage the competitors left Tan Tan very early in the morning. Around 02:00 PM the first riders were at the bivouac of Atar. But the stage was not ended. At midnight about 50 pilots were still in the desert, most of them almost sure they could spent the night far from the bivouac. Some of them decided to stop and to sleep a short, cold and troubled night. Some others proceeded very slowly. Many of all sentenced to the withdrawal. For all the night, time by time, a headlight coming from the dark announced the arrival of a pilot. The organizers decided to let the last riders leave for the next stage, after a medical check-up. Should they reach the bivouac at Nouackchott? And if, should they have the time to enjoy this area devastated by a sandstorm?
