After amazing and thrilling the international crowds on the KTM Duke 125, Rok has now taken delivery of what is his first ever big bike and now has to work on converting his tricks to suit the more powerful machine.
“There’s a BIG difference between the two bikes,” Rok said. “The bike has five times more power then the Duke 125 and any mistake can result in a crash, as I’ve already discovered.

‘Malaysia you can do it! Were words of Rok Bagoros, KTM stunt rider, when he completed his last performance at 2012 bike expo motorcycle show in Kuala Lumpur.
Indeed, enthusiastic fans did a fantastic job and pulled out last bit of strength from young stuntmen. ‘My hands were hurting like hell and body was beaten, but I’ just couldn’t stop. When I thought: man that’s enough I can’t do it anymore, people just continued to cheer and with so many people wanting more, you really can’t say no! Si I didn’t and all I can say now is that this was my best show ever and for sure I can’t wait to do it again. Kuala Lumpur is fantastic city, with great people, food, relax atmosphere. The only thing I couldn’t cope with was the damn heat and humidity. It was quite a big change coming from Central Europe, where spring is slowly arriving to full summer temperatures of Kuala Lumpur. It also felt fantastic to jump on my KTM Duke 125 and burned some Sava rubbers after short winter break’, Rok completed his impressions of his first show in 2012.
Rok Bagoros has updated his blog that he has arrived in Kuala Lumpur for the MotoXpo KL 2012. The flight here takes 20 hour so the first that he needs to do is to rest and replenish the energy for the event that is going to start tomorrow!
