Ultimate Adventure Bike Issue 3

Our goal in ULTIMATE ADVENTURE BIKE AUSTRALIA is to appreciate everyone that’s having a crack — big or small — and enjoying whatever it is that’s an adventure to you. Hopefully, along the way we can steer you in the right direction (pun kinda intended) and bring to the fore just how much fun and how liberating adventure riding is. The adventure bike scene is one of the most vibrant across the globe and nowhere is it more relevant than in this vast sunburnt country. We were built by adventurers and the need to explore is in our blood. There’s never been a better time to do it on a motorcycle with an amazing array of machines and gear available for all. And now they’re finding freedom once again on bikes that take them back in bush and well beyond, in a less aggressive environment. Now is the time to reach those riders. Readers will be treated to the highest quality photography and journalism with bike tests and bucketlist rides leading the features. Each issue will also have dedicated ride tutorials and handy on track how to’s and will be chockas full of gear and accessories that we know this audience loves.

ktm 450 rally replica

OUR GOAL AND FOCUS WAS TO DEVELOP A BIKE AROUND THE STYLE OF OUR CURRENT FACTORY RIDERS, WHO REQUIRED SOMETHING WITH MORE COMFORT, MORE AGILITY AND IMPROVED STABILITY The 2019 KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA has a completely new chassis that has been re-designed to improve mass centralisation, bringing the weight to the centre and lower in the bike for more agility and stability over the previous model. A new swingarm, linkage and shock absorber with a new air filter box, fuel tanks and seat provide a range of improvements, especially in overall weight distribution. A shorter and lower Akrapovič exhaust continues with the mass centralisation focus, which has been a key point of evolution in the new generation. The bike is also fitted with WP XACT PRO 48mm closed cartridge Cone…

carducci dual-sport sc3 adventure

“I built one SC3 Adventure dual-sport motorcycle for myself which I love riding. I created one SC3 Adventure for someone else to enjoy: the motorcycle shown here. A complete ground-up hand build, starting with a 2003 H-D 883R. The one SC3 Adventure we built for sale is now committed; it is the only one which will be built by CDS. The one-off build-to-print, handcrafted and hand-assembled bike is comprised 48 per cent with parts that I design engineered and had fabricated from premium materials. Forty-six per cent of the bike is top-of-the-line curated aftermarket components. I intentionally kept six per cent of the SC3 Adventure as the original H-D components which are easily serviced anywhere in the world.” Sustainable design “Our SC3 Adventure patented designs reinvented the 2003 H-D Sportster motorcycle by transforming…
