KTM AG is still known to many as KTM Power Sports AG. KTM is an internationally active Austrian manufacturer of motorcycles and even has a sports car in its range with the X-Bow. However, KTM achieved today's fame only with off-road motorcycles of the Enduro and Motocross classes. With this, KTM has made a name for itself all over the world. But the sporty street motorcycles that have been manufactured for several years are also very popular. KTM has been the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Europe since 2012 and is considered the global market leader for off-road motorcycles. KTM, as we know it today, emerged in 2005 from the merger of Cross Holding and KTM-Sportmotorcycles GmbH, which was founded in 1992. But the history of KTM is much older. After all, the predecessor company, KTM Motor-Fahrzeugbau KG, dates back to 1934. The production of motorcycles, on the other hand, can be traced back to 1953.
