KTM and Sebastien Tortelli Join Forces

Future KTM SX model motorcycle owners will benefit of one free day riding school with 2-time Motocross World Champion Sebastien Tortelli, KTM announced. The following 2008-2009 models are eligible for this program: 85 SX, 105 SX, 125 SX, 144 SX, 150 SX, 250 SX, 250 SX-F, 450 SX-F and 505 SX-F.

"KTM has been a sponsor of Champ Factory Motocross Schools for the past two years by providing bikes for the program instructors. This year we wanted to go even further and offer these schools to customers within the local area as a bonus to their new bike purchase,"
commented KTM Sales Manager Revelle Harrison.

The program will roll out in California and Arizona first and will add additional states as the program grows. "We are excited about this opportunity, but would like to start slow to ensure that the customers who attend have the best service and opportunities available. We plan to extend a riding school offer to all states after the initial launch period," added Harrison.

Sebastien Tortelli created Champ Factory Motocross School after more than 20 years of motocross racing, 2 World Championships, Supercross and Motocross National wins.

"I am very excited to open my school to more KTM riders. I am very familiar with the KTM brand and have been riding the bikes for many years myself. I thought his was a great opportunity to welcome enthusiast riders to my school and help them excel to the next level," said Tortelli in a statement for the press.
