David Jenni, CEO and Co-Owner
As a teenager, David enjoyed hiking, rock climbing and any other adventure out in the woods. Motorcycles, however, where not part of his life. This changed, when his later wife Isabel got an old Honda CM125 for her 18th birthday. It might have to do with immaturity, but it just didn't feel right to have a girlfriend with a motorcycle and ride a bicycle himself. So David got himself an old an quite run down Kawasaki KMX 125 and started dreaming of traveling the world on this little dirt bike. After a first trip to the Tunisian Sahara on the 125cc bikes, David switched to a KTM 640 Adventure, which reliably got him through the Alps, the Sahara and the Australian outback. Today he rides a pimped KTM 690 Enduro R.
Stefano Bucher, Head of Marketing and Co-Owner
Stefano's enthusiasm for motorbikes began at the age of 6, when he got his first Yamaha PW50 and roamed the woods. At the age of 18, he was riding a Yamaha DT 125 R legally on the roads. Many motorbikes later - mostly touring enduros and classic bikes - he now rides a BMW R 1200 GS which is mainly used for longer trips. For somewhat rougher terrain, however, he also has a KTM 690 Enduro in his fleet. In the last few years, he has travelled to more than 20 countries in Europe, from Albania to Ireland - hopefully many more will follow in the next few years.
Markus Raasch, Head of Sales
Markus has been riding a motorcycle since he was 18 years old. At the beginning he was on the road with a Kawasaki ZR-7S. With it he went on the first longer tours to Norway and over the Iberian Peninsula to Gibraltar, over the Cabo da Roca in Portugal and back past the Dune du Pilat in Gascony in France. The desire to move off the beaten track with the motorcycle grew and so he switched to a Suzuki DL 650 V-Strom. With it he went to the Pyrenees, Corsica and the Balkans. The routes became step by step more demanding and after a trip with a small 250ccm through the north of Thailand it was clear that he wanted to drive something lighter. Since then, Markus has been riding his KTM 690 Enduro R on- and off-road and since September 2021 together with the Enduristan team.

Jonas joined Enduristan In 2023 and is always eager to take on new challenges. He's recently added flat track racing to his repertoire, in addition to competing in moto rallies on his Husqvarna 701 and tackling tougher terrain on his Husqvarna TE 300i. Whether he's soaring through the air or tearing up dirt tracks, Jonas's passion for offroad riding knows no bounds.
Joëlle Mohni, Head of Finance
In Joëlle's life there has not been much to report about motorcycles in the past. Although she drove a moped as a teenager and also dreamed a little bit of driving an off-road motorcycle later on.
Besime Wyler, Financial Accountant
Besime has not had much to do with motorcycles until now. Her father had a Pony GTX which she often drove – and she enjoyed it a lot. She would like to experience this excitement again. Motorcycling means absolute freedom and everyone can experience it. «I admire people who push their limits and make the impossible possible. My favorite motto goes well with this: No risk no fun. Riding an Enduro myself has always been a dream that I would like to fulfill at some point.” Besime has been part of the Enduristan team since July 2021 and is looking forward to steadily improve her knowledge about the world of motorcycling.
Enduristan is still fully privately owned by the founders David and Isabel Jenni, Christoph von Ow and our marketing manager Stefano Bucher.
