2013 KTM EXC 6 Days – Germany. UPDATED

2013 KTM EXC 6 Days – Germany. UPDATED

Out of all the bikes we do each year at Kiska, my favorite project is often the KTM EXC 6 days edition. Not only can we spec the bike with loads of nice powerparts and custom bits as stock (custom laser etched 6 days bars, black laser etched 6 days rims, black spokes, silver nipples, orange anodized triple clamps etc etc) but the GFX are always fun to do too and a rare chance to use some other colors than orange! The reaction to last years EXC 6 days Finland bike was really positive so I tried to keep some of the same visual language with this years bike to make it look like a natural progression.

The GFX were a little tricky because the bike needed to be distinctly German but without evoking some of the more negative connotations which have been associated with German national imagery from the past. We went for a metallic gold rather than the lighter yellowy gold you see more often on the German flag and mixed it with the KTM offroad Visual language to create this years flagship model of the KTM EXC line and one of my favorite bikes we worked on this year. First person to send me a photo of of one (not photoshop) pimped out with Supermoto wheels wins a free t-shirt : )

    What do you think of this bike? We builted it for Francisco Arredondo, for upcoming Six Days in Germany. Your design :) but a bit customized.

      Looks pretty good man. Bremen logo is maybe a little harsh but I guess you need that.
      thanks for showing me the bike.

  8. Vladimir 2 years ago

    Glad you liked it, its just like you said, I had no choice with Bremen logo. I did my best to implement it as painless as possible.
    We used 2013 MX radiator shrouds and filterbox (they are wider, just where Bremen logo is, thus bigger space for Bremen sponsor), so had to reworked the design a bit.

    Great design. I love it.
