THUNDERSPRINT 2014: KTM BRINGS THE NOISE
See and sample the KTM Street range at Darley Moor this weekend
KTM, working with its Loughborough-based dealer, Redline Motorcycles, will have a loud presence at the Thundersprint event this weekend (May 10-11) with a display of 2014 bikes and also the opportunity to take a free demo ride.
Darley Moor hosts the long-running ‘biking party’ for the first time in its history and on Saturday and Sunday, visitors to the Derbyshire circuit will be able to take a closer look at a large selection of the 2014 KTM Street and Off-Road range, with staff on hand to answer any questions relating to the Austrian brand.
For those looking for the full KTM experience at the Thundersprint, there is the chance to take a free test ride from the circuit on both days. Riders will have the choice of seven bikes * from the 2014 Street range; 390 Duke, 690 Duke, 690 Duke R, 690 SMC, RC8 R, 1190 Adventure and the torque Beast 1290 Super Duke R.
Riders will need their full motorcycle licence, preferably with the paper section and will be able to ride KTM models appropriate to your licence qualification. Bookings will be made at the KTM stand. The escorted rides begin from 09:00hrs and will last for approximately 45 minutes.
Thundersprint organiser, Frank Melling, explains the philosophy behind the event. “We want to show the very best of motorcycling to the widest possible audience. This is why everywhere except the race track is open to the public and our star riders are completely accessible.
“Regardless of what your interest in motorcycling is, you will find something to excite you at the Thundersprint – whether it’s a Pre-War vintage racer, a stunning restoration of a British classic or simply a day out with the kids in a relaxed atmosphere. If you can’t enjoy yourself at the Thundersprint you really don’t like bikes!”
