KTM Dukehana comes to Manila

Are you Duke enough? KTM Philippines invites local KTM Duke owners to take the challenge and display their motorcycle riding skills at the KTM Dukehana at the Circuit Makati Parking Grounds on February 25, 2018! To be held in the country for the very first time, the event promises to be a most exciting motorcycle racing experience as participating riders navigate a street course that’s equal parts challenging and exhilarating!

The Dukehana is a motorcycle time trial sport in which riders compete to manoeuvre in the shortest time through a paved course restricted by traffic cones and other skill-testing obstacles. Participants riding skills will be put to the test with challenges like reversals, 180 degree spins, 360 degree spins, parking boxes and figure 8s.

With this, the Philippines now officially joins the ranks of other Asian countries—Bangkok, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, among others—who have staged their own races, thus giving Filipino riders an entry to this prestigious international circuit.

Since KTM joined MotoGP, many riders have begun to take notice of the racing pedigree of KTM motorcycles, and through the Dukehana, they will be able to fully exploit their unique performance characteristics using KTM Duke 200 and 390 motorcycles—performance machines that are built on the core values of purity, performance, adventure, and extreme.

Together with the Manila leg are two more legs—one in Davao on April 28 and in Cebu on June 2. The overall winner with the fastest time on all legs will be the Philippine representative to the Dukehana Asia Final happening on the latter part of 2018.

KTM is also offering free diagnostic check-up for guests bringing their KTM motorcycles on the day itself.

To join, visit your nearest KTM dealer. Registration starts at 9:00 am daily until February 19, 2018. For further announcements, visit the KTM PHILIPPINES official Facebook page.

The Dukehana is made possible with the support of Summit Ridge Tagaytay
