Our Bikes


So you’re considering joining one of our tours in Oman or perhaps even hiring a motorcycle from us and would like to know a little more about our bikes?

All good things must come to an end as the saying goes and our fleet of KTM 990 Adventures are now being pensioned off. We have found these to be a very good, capable bike when it comes to Oman and the terrain we can cover during the course of our tours. They are tried and proven, with the LC8 engine being tough and reliable.  

So what have we decided to replace them with you might ask? 

We now have Africa Twin, BMW 800 GS and our NEW BMW 850 GS's will be on their way very soon... We'll be most interested to hear what you think of the 850's in particular. For the KTM fans, we will still keep 3 or 4 990's for our die hard Austrian fans. You never know, we might even pick-up some of the new 800's...

All our bikes are maintained and serviced to a high standard so as to ensure reliability, with safety and rider enjoyment being our priority. After all, what’s the point in travelling all the way to the Arabian Peninsula and not have a bike that will get you to where you want go!

So if you’re on one of tours you may well find yourself with an option of trialling a BMW 850GS or perhaps the new Africa Twin from Honda. We would love to hearwhich one you think would make for a suitable replacement for our 990 Adventure’s! 

It will be a hard choice as the KTM’s have served as well...

We work on the basis of you damage the bike, you fix it. Although we accept ‘fair wear & tear’ we fully expect riders to respect their bike and to take responsibility for their actions. Any replacement parts required due to negligence or ‘tom foolery’ will be quoted as per KTM World list prices. 

If it is evident a motorcycle has been abused, the rider will be asked to leave the tour and transport will be arranged for them back to their respective tour start point, that being either Dubai or Muscat. 

A full brief on the operation of the bike will be given to tour participants before hire or tour commencement, with the first day of each tour being classed as a ‘Familiarization Day’ to allow riders to become accustomed to their respective bikes and their handling characteristics.
