KTM, makers of sports motorcycles has signed Slovenia’s Rok Bagoros as a specialist stunt rider. Rok, 21, will be part of the program to promote the new KTM 125 Duke, the revolutionary naked bike for young riders, which is being introduced onto the market in the spring of 2011.

Rok came to the attention of the world of motorcycles after he started posting videos of his trick riding on a scooter on the internet.

His aspirations to be a stunt rider went into a higher gear when he started getting invitations to appear at events in France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Kosovo, Hungary and Slovenia.

Several months ago he won his first international competition in Bordeaux, France, and officially became one of the top scooter stunt riders. He has also been on cover features of a number of European moto magazines.

Bagoros said it was "a dream come true" to sign with KTM and to be part of the promotion campaign for the new KTM 125 Duke. He was offered the change to ride for the Orange brand after a KTM representative spotted him riding in Germany.

Rok took delivery of his new KTM 125 Duke at the company’s headquarters in Mattighofen, Austria, recently and can be seen trying out the bike in the video.

"Now I want to get used to the new bike as soon as possible and put together a good and interesting program for the shows;" says the 125 Duke motorcycle stunter.
