KTM is working closely with North American Supermoto (NASMOTO), as well as clubs and track owners across North America, to help supermoto flourish at the grass roots level. In a recent deal, the manufacturer plans to support supermoto training schools and demo days being launched at USA International Raceway (USAIR) in Shawano, Wisc., near Green Bay.
USAIR is a two-year-old track with numerous straightaways - including one of 1,000 feet - and several elevation changes. The track has attracted supermoto riders from around the region.
