You can ride yourself along with your crew or get a guide. We recommend, it is better to get guide because the guide will have a lot of riding experience and skilled with the mechanic technique. Even KTM city can be complicated for new people because narrow busy roads, lot of one way, no parking, shortcut, traffic rules, etc. Your small amount guide can make your riding a safe, comfortable and more exciting.
