Bikes & kit

Reliable equipment and successful adventures go hand in hand. That’s why we’re proud to showcase our fleet of bikes and riding kit used on our courses.


The Desert Rose Riding Academy has a variety of off road motorcycles for use on our training courses. With both 2 stroke and 4 stroke, current and late model Beta enduro bikes as the main stay of our Academy Fleet.  Ranging from 200cc 2 stroke to 480cc 4 stroke motorcycles there is a bike to suit all riders.

Fully serviced and maintained to manufacturer’s specifications and our own high standards, all of the motorcycles are looked after by the team at Desert Rose DirtTech, part of the Desert Rose Network.

The Desert Rose Riding Academy take the safety of our customers very seriously. We take all necessary precautions and provide protective body armour and riding kit at no extra cost on all courses; we have a wide range of kit sizes available.

Riders are also welcome to use their own enduro, trail or dirt bike, these must not have offensively loud exhausts and need to be in roadworthy condition (we will check the gear to ensure it is suitable. If in any doubt, we’ll ask you to use ours.)

Our Instructors Picks

Our courses are a great opportunity to try out several different bikes throughout the day and learn the benefits and differences of the various models through our expert instructors! Check out some instructor favourites below:

Harry - RR 2T 300

Harry’s bike of choice when he competed in the 2020 Red Bull Romaniacs Hard Enduro.


Patsy - X TRAINER 300

Excellent engine response and top-notch rideability provide high performances being at the same time easy to handle, ensuring riders can cope confidently with whatever the situation demands. 2020 saw Patsy finish the Red Bull Romniacs Hard Enduro on her X Trainer 300.

Joe - RR 4T 480

A real ready-to-race motorbike, suitable for the most extreme situations you might encounter on a competition terrain. Desert Rose had a number of rally prepared RR 480s on the 2021 Edition of the Qatar Baja desert rally.

paul - RR 4T 350

An extremely capable motorcycle, not quite as full on as the 390/430 and 480 RR but still with enough power to deal with longer trails and gnarly hills alike.

Fully serviced & maintained by Desert Rose DirtTech.
