Thumb KTM (non factory) guided/unguided tours Europe?

I have been trying to help my Aussie mates for a while with this, and maybe someone from the asylum have more local knowledge.

Are there any touring companies in Europe that are offering guided/unguided tours on KTM 690 R and 1190 R besides the KTM organized adventure tours?

I have some friends (4 of them, very experienced riders) from AUS that are searching for options to fly and ride Europe in spring 2016 . They will be 4 weeks (riding two or three weeks) in Europe, and then flying back home.
They're oriented towards riding the Mediterranean (Morocco is for now, for them out of option) so options are Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Austria, Balkans and Greece. Maybe some company provides KTM guided tours from Germany/Austria, but is willing to do the transfer of bikes to some airport in southern Europe?

Since they have asked me for helping with EU info (not sure if I found anything useful), I managed to find these options (maybe someone have tried them and can chime in with their impressions as well):

1. ADMO: is only offering rental option no guided or unguided tours
2. Tourson2wheels (not sure if they're offering an option to take ktm 1190 R on tour, or only to rent from them)

Can anyone jump in with any useful info, it will be much appreciated

thanks
Dooby

Hi Burro,

thanks for the reply and PM, appreciate your insight and will get in touch with ADmo to get more info

Maybe someone else tried them and can chime in, or can recommend some other option that I could not find googling around.

It is very strange that there are so many BMW rental options ( a zillion options, it's just overwhelming ), but not so many KTM's

I thought I will be able to help my mates with at least 5 options to choose from, but as for now there are only two options

Dooby

Certainly in Austria most Main Dealers also do Bike Rentals but it is not obvious on their web sites.

Find a KTM Dealer and send them a request.

Organising an actual Tour is quite easy. If they want any help and advice for Austria send me an email

Hi Ali,

I really didn't knew that all of the bigger KTM dealers can provide the rental service, that's a plus. Though kinda strange because they're not offering it publicly

Will send you an inquiry if the guys decide to drop in your backyard, I'm counting on you

cheers
Dooby

It applies to main dealers in general, not just KTM.

They certainly don't use the Internet to its full potential here
