Austrian Army – 1985 KTM 250 Krad

In Austria, Dual-Sport, Less than 5k by AbhiLeave a Comment

Another day, another bike I had never heard of before! I’ve seen this referred to as the 250 Krad or the 250 GL Krad – whatever you call it, it’s cool! A translated German Wikipedia page suggests that it was used by the Austrian and Norwegian armed forces and had optional skis for snow/ice riding. The air-cooled 245cc 2-stroke single …
