KTM Adventure Rally Returns, And So Does Ride Orange Demo Tour


Act fast, adventure bike fans: The KTM Adventure Rally Canada returns for 2024, but the word going around at the Toronto Motorcycle Show was that the rally is almost sold out already, despite just being officially announced.

This year, the KTM Adventure Rally will run near Calabogie, Ontario, after a couple of years based north of Montreal, Quebec. This year’s dates are July 4-6, with two days of riding based out of Calabogie Peaks Resort. Along with the venue change, organizers say there is one major difference with this year’s rally:

In 2024 we will not be tracking your mileage like in years past. There will be exciting navigational challenges including checkpoints that will need to be reached throughout the 2 days with your team members.”

Each day ends with prizes, a dinner and general party at rally HQ.

The rally is open to all brands of ADV bikes or dual sports with engines more than 600cc like in years past, with KTM’s 390 Adventure models also approved for the event.

KTM has slots for 140 riders, and from what we’ve heard, more than 100 have already signed up. If you want in on the fun, better check in here ASAP.
