DIE MARKE KTM

“READY TO RACE” – these three words for KTM are far more than a mere slogan. They stand for the whole philosophy of the company to develop vehicles that can compete in every race from the factory 100%. From the dealers directly onto the track and into the race for the win.

Developers, engineers and drivers are connected by a common denominator: the unconditional passion for motorcycles. The entire family is living KTM before the world. Countless offroad world and European champion and brilliant victories in the toughest race in the world (International Six Days Enduro, Rally Dakar, Erzbergrodeo etc.) speak for themselves. And KTM Supermoto, Naked Bikes, Superbikes and the X-Bow show on asphalt, which means “orange” tab.

PURITY

The reduction to the essentials optimizes the performance of a motorcycle – in motorsport as well as in the two-wheeled life. And this “essential” must be composed of first-class and well-tested components. The result is a KTM!

PERFORMANCE

The same very transparent handling which distinguishes KTM racing machines, offers a KTM motorcycle in everyday life. It supports the driver with powerful performance and clear feedback. Perhaps it is precisely at this race-oriented design that motorcycles from Mattighofen convey their owners primarily one thing: incredibly fun to drive.

ADVENTURE

The reduction to the essentials optimizes the performance of a motorcycle – in motorsport as well as in the two-wheeled life. And this “essential” must be composed of first-class and well-tested components. The result is a KTM!

PERFORMANCE

A KTM should be even in the most extreme situations in the competition and grown beyond the asphalt. The striking bright orange is a unique identifying feature of the company, whose heart is still the sport.
