KTM Factory Rally Team

The KTM Factory team recently did some practicing for the 2012 Dakar Rally, which will take place Jan. 1-15.

This year’s lineup includes Dakar Rally champions Marc Coma and Cyril Despres, along with their support riders, or “water carriers” – Juan Pedero (Coma) and Ruben Faria (Despres).


The four motorcyclists recently traveled to Fontjouncouse in the south of France to further test the 450 Rally motorcycle.

Joining them at the test was Johnny Aubert, who will also compete at the 2012 Dakar Rally as a privateer effort supporting by KTM Customer Service.
