He posted a message on his facebook account.
He plans to ride it together with American Baja rider Quinn Cod in the 14th edition of Redbull Romaniacs in July.
Redbull Romaniacs, a very tough race even to the toughest riders in the planet, is set to be tackled with one of most powerful bike of KTM, though, of course, it is also one of the heaviest.
KTM 1090 and adventure bike known for its power. With 1090cc power and bike weight of 228Kg it is one convenient adventure bike.
