KTM Story

KTM Story


KTM was founded in 1934 by Hans Trunkenpolz in Mattighofen, Austria. They didn’t produce motorcycles at the begining, only metal artefacts, but then in 1954 they began producing motorcycles. In 1955 Ernst Kronreif, a good businessman, became shareholder of the company Trunkenpolz, the founder died unexpectedly in 1989. In 1992 the company went bankrupt and was divided into three companies: KTM Sportmotorcycles GmbH, renamed KTM Sportmotocycles AG in 1994 KTM Fahrrad GmbH (bicycle producer) KTM Kühler GmbH (radiator producer) After that the Austrian house obtained only successes, growing day by day, confirming it’s supremacy in off-road and recently it has begun to distinguish itself in street racing too. KTM these few but powerful words make lots of orange orientated people dream, they make us feel emotions when we turn on the engine and even after they leave you breathless. and they urges you to continue driving until your body is one with the bike, and your heart beats at the same pace as the piston, the more it speeds up the faster the adrenaline flows in your body. These are the emotions that a real bike offers you….. Thank you all for watching the video, please comment and write your opinions. (Special thanks to KTMax for the translation)

  3. Grazie per tutto quello che ci hai raccontato… Io ho un KTM 175 motore KTM del 1975,bianca col telaio azzurro.Bellissima.Le sue Metzeller artigliate mi hanno portata sulle dune di Douz nel 1986 durante il mio "viaggio della vita", un raid in solitaria che ho fatto in Tunisia. Io, il mio K e il mio cuore. Non avevo altro.Ogni mattino la accarezzo e la ringrazio per l'emozione che ancora mi da nel percorrere un bosco con la manetta aperta e le foglie che corrono dietro di noi….

  4. Vieni a fare il Rally dei Faraoni! Io l'ho fatto quest'anno…. Con una Toyota. Ma il mio cuore correva su due ruote! In parallelo! Mi sono portata mio figlio che neanche aveva la patente…. ehehehe Devi provare le dune… una volta che le "assaggi" non esci piu' da li'.
    Il motto di mio figlio e': 4 ruote muovono il corpo, 2 muovono l'anima!
    Tale e quale a me! e…. a te!
