M 390 Duke

Ever hear of Gymkhana? It’s a motorcycle sport that truly challenges a rider’s ability. During gymkhana, a rider must navigate around a course built around cones in the shortest amount of time, and with the least amount of error.

M Gymkhana is a California-based promoter of this motorcycling event, and now KTM North America has stepped up to sponsor the M Gymkhana. The two have signed a two-year partnerships.

KTM says “M Gymkhana is an open displacement competition that tests the rider’s skill and ability rather than how much or how littler horsepower a particular motorcycle can produce. The M Gymkhana series has a different course layout for each round that is on paved ground with cones as the markers. Riders race through the cones without error for the fastest time.”

KTM will showcase it’s agile KTM 390 Duke during the M Gymkhana rounds. Participants have the opportunity to demo a purpose-built 2016 KTM 390 Duke on the course. All that is needed is a motorcycle endorsement and the required safety gear.

The next round will kick off at Fontana Speedway this Saturday, February 27. The Southern California Series schedule is as follows:

• February 27 – Fontana Speedway
