Nobody takes off-road motorcycling as serious as KTM and its massive stand at the International Dirt Bike Show (Stoneleigh Park, Coventry: October 31 – November 3) will once again reflect orange as the brightest colour.

The Austrian brand is ‘Ready to Race’; more than just a slogan, this is the rule that the company makes all its bikes to. True to this mantra are a selection of the Factory race machines that will be on display at Stoneleigh Park, including Tony Cairoli’s dominant 350 SX-F MX1 championship machine and Jeffrey Herlings’ unrivalled 250 SX-F MX2 title winner.

Further race bikes from its Enduro and Rally teams include Jonny Walker’s ‘Red Bull Sea to Sky’-winning 300 EXC, the 450 Rally bike of Dakar legend Marc Coma and the World Enduro E3 championship winning 250 EXC-F of Antoine Meo.

On equal footing with the Factory bikes (only without race numbers) are the 2014 range of Motocross and Enduro machines for showgoers to get a close look at. All of these class-leading bikes, from the 50 SX Mini to the powerhouse 500 EXC, have received significant updates when they were released during the summer.

For those looking for fun away from competition, the Freeride range features a revised 350 four-stroke model and an entirely new the two-stroke 250R addition.

In addition to all that metal, the stand will be crammed with as many PowerParts and PowerWear products as possible and KTM staff will be on hand to answer questions. Double World Motocross MX2 champion, Jeffrey Herlings, will be in attendance on Friday November 1 to sign autographs and speak on the main stage. KTM UK is also asking for your questions to put to ‘The Bullet’ via KTM UK’s social media channels, www.facebook.com/UKKTM and www.twitter.com/KTM_UK, with the best one winning a £200 KTM OGIO kit bag.

The prizes don’t end there, as KTM UK wants show visitors to post and tweet them their favourite pictures from each day from the show. The owner of the best picture from each of the four days of the event will be sent a set of KTM caps, signed by its Factory MX1 & MX2 riders.
