KTM’s World Adventure Week (WAW)is just around the corner, with the challenge of riding 1,000km in a single week. 

The goal? To be one of the precious few to ‘live a once in a lifetime KTM experience’ – and that experience will purportedly involve testing brand new KTM machinery out in an adventure-focused setting. 

We gusta.
