A wonderful mix of power, versatility and fun is what makes the 640 Adventure Traveller’s Edition a true blast each time you ride it. Prepared for the long run on and especially off the road, the bike is a true representation of KTM’s dedication on delivering the best performing and one of the most agile all-around motorcycles on the market today.
Two strong LED-lights from 3XLED are added to enhance visibility in day time riding and light up the trails and roads during night time.
I've used the space above the speedometers, and made a mounting bracket for all the accessories like GPS and phone.
To handle all the weight and intense workload, we upgraded the rear spring to a stiffer one. This withstand the luggage even better, creating a smoother ride.
The bike was listed on a online marketplace, with 20.100km on the odometer, Touratech 16L extended fuel capacity and upgraded C2P rear suspension. The bike hadn't been started in several months when inspecting it, but the engine turned nicely over and sounded just right. When inspecting it further, I noticed these issues:
I negotiated the price down and bought the bike. The seller was kind enough to offer me a bed for the night, we had some beers and he shared his tips on where to ride in South Africa.
Upon returning to Cape Town, I delivered the bike to Mike at Rockfox to make a custom luggage rack for the bike.
Mike is a busy guy with lots of projects going on at the same time, therefor the bike took longer than first agreed upon. He did however deliver solid products.
I arranged a full 20.000km service at Kingtek Motorcycles. The owner, Andrew ensured me he would do a thorough inspection of the bike making it ready for this adventure.
I also picked up some spare parts at Craig's Motorcycle Spares:
To make the bike suitable for this travel and the road conditions, I left the bike at the best shock and suspension specialist in South Africa (maybe in all of Africa), Martin at MP Custom Valve who once delivered the rear C2P suspension talked us through how he would like to have the bike set up for a travel like this.
The bike is now all set for this travel.
