The Big

Orange Fire

Engine Bike

So, the concept seems feasible and has possibly been

attempted before on ATV’s and side by sides with varying

degrees of success.

However, when two Austrian giants in the form of KTM and

Rosenbauer, a company that builds fire engines on a grand

scale worldwide, collaborate with some very clever South

African lads - only good things can happen.

Enter the KTM 1290 Adventure S/Rosenbauer Fire Rescue

motorcycle. It’s been built in conjunction with Mechspec Racing,

BATT, KTM SA and Rosenbauer.

The unit is capable of running between traffic and dwellings

in high density suburbs where big fire trucks can’t get through.

The actual firefighting unit mounted onto the back of the 1290

and weighs about the same as an average pillion with enough

capacity to extinguish two burning cars. The party trick is being

able to nip through narrow spaces and get to the fire along short

cuts a heck of a lot quicker than any other fire fighting vehicle.

Imagine the lives that will be saved and how quickly fires can be

stopped from spreading into catastrophic events.

Ain’t Motorcycles grand? We will be getting a full feature in our

next issue. Watch this space!
