Student explorer returns for start of term
Written by Amy   

University of Nottingham student has arrived back in the UK just in time for the resumption of his course, after travelling more than 12,000 miles aboard a 110cc scooter. Ahmed Mashadani decided to drive from the University’s Malaysia campus, where he completed the second year of his Management degree, to Nottingham during the summer holidays, in order to raise money for the Red Cross.

After completing the epic journey, he said: “20,385 km, 22 countries, a lot of flat tyres and three months of sleeping in the ‘wild’ is now done. No more asking for directions, fighting traffic, being cold and having to deal with passport control. And I miss it all already.”

Showtime at Intermot: KTM presents a new generation of adventure
Written by Amy   

The world premiere of two new motorcycles is being celebrated at the international motorcycle fair, Intermot, that will take place from 3 to 7 October in Cologne, Germany. KTM will present the 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R which herald the start of the new Adventure Generation as of February 2013.

The bikes are differently positioned, sports-oriented touring bikes with powerful two cylinder motors and light chassis. The 1190 Adventure is above all focused for use on tarmac; the use of wide 19in front and 17in rear tyres is especially for the pleasure of versatile road users. The Adventure R shows what is feasible from a sporting perspective and enables you to undertake plenty of off-road action with its 21in and 18in wheels and longer travel suspension.
