If you want to experience the amazing levels of grip and unbelievable cornering angles that are possible with BMW Motorrad's new G 650 Xmoto, then our Supermoto Training course is just the thing for you. Training starts with simple exercises that increase (according to the skill level of the group) throughout the course to enable riders to eventually experience fast laps, supermoto-style, on a specially marked course.

Enduro Training at Erzberg

Every rider loves the challenge of riding a motorcycle on new terrain, which is why BMW Motorrad has created the ultimate experience for those interested in trying out its off-road machines. Throughout 2006, special training events have been organised at the Erzberg - Austria's enduro Mecca.

The 700-hectare site on which the two-day Enduro Training program is held is the same venue as the Erzberg Rodeo - the biggest enduro race in the world. Here you can prove what you are capable of. Training sessions are actually held on the original Iron Road Prologue route, which forms part of the Erzberg Rodeo. Here, countless gravel tracks run from the foot of the mountain to the peak at 1,600 metres. And when you have had enough of the steep climbs and descents and want to relax, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape from the summit.

Duration of training: Two days with a maximum of eight participants per instructor.
Motorcycles: a choice of the R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure, F 650 GS, G 650 Xcountry and G 650 Xchallenge.
