Ozalps Bikes

All bikes listed are as new, current models - actually demonstrators - from Kawasaki, BMW, and KTM. Bikes are supplied with a top-case for solo riders, and panniers + top case for pillion couples.

Versys 650

Standard Package
New fairing will make this one prettier in photos, and still comes highly recommended as it always has- even 2 two up. Smart pick for the riding we will be doing. Supplied with top-case, panniers also available for pillion couples.

Z650

Standard Package
*New for 2017* As per the Versys 650, a timely re-vamp of the great ER6 - lighter by 19kg(!), ABS and slipper clutch, and well enough power and torque to have heaps of fun in the Alpine riding environment. Precision handling will be key, and have solo riders grinning. Supplied with top case.

Z900

Standard Package
It's shocking how good these bikes are. So nicely balanced and easy to ride, and a motor that produces beautiful satin-smooth power at all RPM. Perfect solo ride for all, even if you're tall, and especially for those of average height. Supplied with top case.

BMW F800R

Category 2 Bike
Sensible hooning? A bike that is not at all intimidating but surprisingly quick in the twisty bits. No need to rev this motor to get it to move, really torquey and there’s definitely enough grunt for two-up touring. Precision handling give great 'grin-factor' for everyone. Supplied with panniers and/or top case.
+$300 for 8 day tour; +$420 for 12 days; +$590 for 16 days

Z1000SX 'Ninja'

Category 2 Bike
Another comfortable sports bike, as per the Z1000N, yet even more civilized. Supplied with panniers (no top case), so great for a lighter pillion couple who also travel light (travel smart?), or a solo rider who wants to take lots of stuff. Always fastest on autobahn when we do our 'have to say you've done it' squirt. Supplied with panniers.
+$300 for 8 day tour; +$420 for 12 days; +$590 for 16 days

Versys 1000 GT

Category 3 Bike
Again a great pillion bike, just updated and arguably better looking than the much maligned aesthetics of older model. ABS, 3 stage traction control, and long travel suspension ensure a comfortable and safe ride. Still plenty of power, precision handling and brakes to ensure the pilot is having fun. Supplied with panniers and/or top case.
+$410 for 8 day tour; +$520 for 12 days; +$660 for 16 days

KTM 1090 Adventure

Category 3 Bike
*New model. Lightest, easy to steer road going version of the KTM 'Adventure' series. Multi-mode ABS and ride modes, traction control, and lovely V-twin engine with 125HP (!), AND comfortable upright ride stance - what's not to like? Great for solo rider (or pillion couple), and supplied with top case and/or panniers.
+$410 for 8 day tour; +$520 for 12 days; +$660 for 16 days

BMW S1000XR

Category 4 Bike
What a bike. Hard to describe - BMW pride themselves on producing this bike that they is 'uncategorical', and it's not far from the truth... Sportsbike; tick, Tourer; tick, All-Road; sort of tick. Happiest on the tarmac - and cornered tarmac which is in oversupply in the Alps. Cruise control to ride modes, traction control - the list goes on and on. Plus power. Lots of power. So fast and so much fun, and surprisingly easy to ride. We love it.
+ $470 for 8 day tour; +$620 for 12 days; +$780 for 16 days

BMW R1200 GS

Category 4 Bike
Big and comfortable, yet somehow nimble, all the electronic modes (suspension, ABS, traction control, heated grips, etc). Needs no introduction, the industry standard for touring for many years, great bike, particular for pillion couple. Supplied with panniers and/or top case.
+ $470 for 8 day tour; +$620 for 12 days; +$780 for 16 days

KTM 1290 Super Adventure

Category 4 Bike
The big sucker - for those who want a bit of room! Stunning power - out powers and out-torques the GS beemer, a hoot for the pilot while the pillion enjoys the views on the wide, thick, luxurious, heated (yes, heated) seat... Lean sensitive ABS, all the electronic comfort and rider aids. Two wheeled luxury speedster with a mile of character, supplied with panniers and/ or top case.
+ $470 for 8 day tour; +$620 for 12 days; +$780 for 16 days

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Category 4 Bike
*New Model. Welcome to the Ozalps fleet - we are expecting big things. It knows to use an alternative damping range for weight of a passenger and a great pillion seat, adjustable screen and factory panniers. It also has 173 horsepower, traction control, a quickshifter, slipper clutch and modes for Sport, Street - the list goes on. Everything the Super Adventure has (plus more?) with a lot shorter leg reach to the ground. No1 performance choice for average height rider or or without pillion.
