Strengthening its support of the most iconic annual event on the Enduro calendar, KTM is proud to kick off a series of activities focused on further backing the organizers of the 2021 event, set to take place on Italian soil. KTM has officially started a dialogue with the Italian overseers with the commitment to remain fully implicated ahead of next year’s event in the Lombardy and Piedmont regions. Providing valuable support for the race organizers to overcome a challenging year, all parties will continue working with the goal to be 100% READY TO RACE in 2021.
Following the postponement of the 2020 event due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, KTM is giving back to the sport of Enduro by extending its support toward the passionate people responsible for the ISDE organization. In addition to seeing a great number of KTM racers representing their respective countries on the official ISDE entry lists, KTM has also been on-site annually with the highly successful paddock-based KTM Rental & Race Service packages.
KTM’s Enduro roots are strong and deeply ingrained, which is evidenced by the care and high level of technical consideration given to the KTM 500 EXC-F SIX DAYS. The 2021 machine proudly displays “ISDE Italia” graphics in anticipation of the coming ISDE race in 2021, the event’s 95th incarnation. The oldest and most prestigious FIM offroad motorcycle race in the world, the ISDE is intrinsically linked with KTM, as over half the field competes on Orange. The upcoming FIM International Six Days Enduro will take place at the Lombardy and Piedmont regions from August 30 to September 4, 2021.
