Hey Hey Ladies and Gents!
Not sure if you've heard the news but KTM Basel are releasing new Adventure and Rally bike set ups for the KTM 690 and they are just GORGEOUS! They will be releasing a website in due course with further details (keep your eyes peeled for the Defy Series) and having had a sneak peek, it's all looking rather awesome!
When we first spotted a prototype made for our friend David at Enduristan we melted on the spot! Knowing we needed to upgrade our 690's for our RTW trip, we contacted KTM Basel and although they are not ready to be released yet they are setting our bikes up with the kit due to our off date in November! First dibs! YAY!
In short, it's all hotting up in a weeks time! We're off to Switzerland on the 30th to have our bikes arrive at KTM Basel on the 01st October to be fully kitted out with their new kit the Defy Series - Adventure!
As artists and designers, we've been putting together a few ideas for the bikes which we thought might get your juices flowing....
1. Chasing Horizons Logo:
2. Orangey Goodness! Chasing Horizons:
3. Oh yes... a Storm Trooper edition!
4. Yet another Storm Trooper
5. And yeh... we kinda like Storm Troopers!
6. A fun design we did for KTM Basel (Yeti Ahoy!) Although there are some proper ones too in the making!
We have our favourites! I'm still designing one which has everything I love on it (geek ahoy)! Let us know what you reckon though!
KTM Basel also had a bit of a press release if you fancy reading up here... note... the use of German translations may be helpful
