Go to any off-road racing event and the popularity of orange dirt bikes is readily apparent. KTM has developed into arguably the strongest manufacturer in the business, but the Austrian company wasn’t always so prolific. Hans Trunkenpolz opened a repair shot in Mattighofen, Austria in 1934 to work on cars and motorcycles. From these humble beginnings, the company would blossom into an industry powerhouse.
KTM identifies primarily as a dirt bike maker, and a great portion for that identity and success stems from the large product line that is available now and historically. Even though knobbies are the norm, street bikes have been part of its lineup since the early years, and the company has offered scooters, mopeds, bicycles, ATVs, a sports car and on the horizon are electric dirt bikes.CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THE HISTORY OF KTM!
