Chronicle

In 1934 Hans Trunkenpolz founded a repair workshop in Mattighofen, started selling DKW motorcycles and in 1951 the company started designing a motorcycle of its own. The company, now called “Kronreif, Trunkenpolz, Mattighofen”, took up racing. In the 1960s the KTM engine designed by Ludwig Apfelbeck gained first victories. In the 1970s and 1980s followed the first world championships, which laid the foundations of today´s unassailable offroad competences. At the end of the 1980s the motorcycle industry hit hard times and in 1991 the KTM Motorfahrzeugbau AG had to file for bankruptcy. One year later, the newly formed KTM motorcycle division KTM Sportmotorcycle GmbH re-opened and got started. KTM expands its motorsport commitment, launched new products and moved into its newly built factory in 1999. A constantly growing team has the ability to annually present product highlights and innovations. After taking over the Husqvarna Motorcycle brand in 2013 and WP in 2017, the company successfully pursues a three-brand strategy.
