KTM Shows Two Roland Sands Customs at Indy

admin

KTM North America, Inc. and Roland Sands Design are unveiling two new custom-designed KTM motorcycles during MotoGP festivities this weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

In June, KTM brought Sands a KTM 530 EXC and a 450 XC-F and allowed him to work his magic to produce unique, one-of-a-kind motorcycles. He transformed the KTM 530 EXC into a Café Racer and the 450 XC-F into a lightweight, Super Single road race machine.

The unveiling also coincides with KTM's dealer meeting, to be held in Indianapolis next week.
