Beginning and nowadays of K T M motorcycle

Beginning and nowadays of K T M  motorcycle

KTM started up in 1953 in Austria and has always held an excellent reputation among enduro motorcycles and off-road motorcycles. However the first KTM motorcycles were based on a smaller engine size and a two stroke model (the Austrian based firm Rotax delivered these engines).

In 1992 KTM made a new start with dedicated management which has managed to blow new life into the brand. It's still based in Mattighofen, Austria and has grown at an impressive rate, due in part to the super successes in the Paris Dakar Rally.

KTM has always focused on producing dual purpose machines, with a little more lean on the off-road character. The Adventure model is the most popular design of KTM. The Adventurer was based on the rally factory racer (but to the credit of KTM - the models hardly differed).

The Adventurer is based on a light weight tubular steel frame with excellent suspension and a highly developed and tested 942cc engine. The whole model is light and well handled. KTM is known world wide for its excellent dual purpose bikes.

Recently KTM has developed the larger adventure 950cc bike and also a funky Street bike called Duke.
