When you think about Dubai, what are the first things that come to your mind? For some, it’s the shopping malls, iconic towers and five star hotels…for others, it’s the sheer majesty of the desert. For desert lovers and first timers, Big Red Motorsports offer many adventures and cater for a complete range of desert tours.
The newest ‘toy’ that they bring for your never ending thirst of desert adrenaline is the RAGE buggy (RAGE Cyclone 1000cc). It has been designed around the very strong and well established two seater chassis used on the Hurricane and Comet vehicles. For the driver looking for some serious off-road fun, this is the vehicle for you to let off some steam and unwind in. The 998cc engine gives incredible performance and will take the vehicle to a top speed of over 75mph. These buggies burst with exhilaration and raw power and leave the drivers yearning for more. These toys, the ultimate in desert fun, are available as part of both the Introduction tour and the Explorer tour with Big Red Motorsports.
Anyone can experience the thrill of riding through the desert with Big Red, and if you’re looking for a fun day with friends, the Polaris Buggy guided tour is a great option. These buggies, with automatic gearbox and 4 wheel drive, ensure that your ride to and through the epic dune landscape is easy and with the highest safety measures. The tour options start from a one hour tour, where you will drive a Polaris RZR XP Dune buggy and get comfortable with it, to the longer options of couple of hours or full day tours. You can also choose a customised Polaris desert experience tour for a large group of friends or even for team building activities. A fantastic multi day ride across the seven emirates is also available, so there are multiple choices for you to enjoy.
Another specialty of Big Red Motorsports is KTM Enduro Desert tours. If you love the thrills and adrenaline offered by an off-road dirt bike, there is no better experience than to take one of Big Red Motorsport’s guided KTM desert tours. Again, the range for the tours starts at one hour and goes up to three days, depending on your particular set of skills. You can learn how to ride in sand and have a small taste of it before embarking for a longer duration tour, or, for the more experienced, you can explore dunes from Al Badayer to Fossil Rock or Wadi Shawka, or from Abu Dhabi to Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah for a dip in a mountain rock lagoon. Besides the tours, Big Red Motorsports also provides motorcycle training classes for everyone, including beginners or those who want to ‘skill up’ their game. And if this wasn’t enough, you can also become a member and have unlimited access to any bike in the Big Red Motorsports fleet. When you have access to a variety of vehicles for the sake of your thrill and enjoyment, it becomes mandatory to provide the right insurance to them.
Last but not least are the Quad (ATV) tours, which allow you to drive through the top tourist attractions and the biggest dunes in the UAE. Of course, utmost safety is the priority of the guides and there is plenty of speed and excitement. For all the tours, you receive a helmet, goggles, gloves for protection, and refreshments, which are very welcome in the desert heat!
To ensure that all the vehicles are in perfect condition and always ready for riders, Big Red Motorsports also have their own workshop. They service their fleet, and they also service your own vehicles, so if you have a buggy, bike or quad, they will gladly do maintenance and servicing work, diagnosis.
Big Red Motorsports is located in Sahara Amusement Centre, Nazwa Dubai – Hatta Road, E44.
