From Gravel to Snow: Touratech Breaks New Ground

Motorbike outfitter in a co-operation with Finnish Lynx snowmobiles.

Bound by a passion for adventure: Touratech, based in South Germany and the leading brand in aftermarket accessories for touring and adventure motorcycles, is to enter into a co-operation with the Finnish snowmobile manufacturer BRP Finland Oy based in Rovaniemi.

What Touratech embodies in the world of adventure bikes, Lynx is for snowmobile fans. A passion for adventure that fuels innovation, unlimited riding fun and the pleasure found in new experiences and memorable moments are firmly entrenched in both companies' philosophies. Lynx experience in the snowmobile industry and Touratech's expertise in the field of adventure touring are now being bundled, merging in a joint project that was be presented to the public in Hermavan / Sweden on 9 March: the Lynx Commander Touratech, designed for ultimate winter adventures.

Developer and manufacturer of Lynx snowmobiles, BRP Finland Oy, is part of the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), based in Valcourt, Québec. BRP is the well-established world leader in the construction, development, manufacture and marketing of motorized recreational vehicles and powersports engines. The company founder built the first tracked vehicle for transportation on snow-covered terrain back in 1937.

The German motorbike outfitter presented a Touratech styled snowmobile at the Intermot trade fair in Cologne. This was a project vehicle by Touratech’s Head of Sales, Martin Wickert, and one in which a number of developers, under the guidance of chief designer Bart van den Bogaard, have given free rein to their creativity out of their sheer pleasure in crazy ideas.

It's no coincidence that Touratech is breaking new ground: for months after going on a snowmobile tour, Martin Wickert talked about little else than the speed, the vehicle's power and the tremendous amount of fun to be had riding over a frozen lake or ploughing single trails through deep snow.

The maiden voyage of the Lynx Commander Touratech has started on March 9 from the "Santa Clause" town of Rovaniemi, Finland. Touratech’s Head of Sales joined professional adventurer Sami Päivike for a snowmobile journey from the Arctic Circle to the Arctic Ocean. Follow their adventure at
