KTM BIKE INDUSTRIES, SINCE 1964

From research and development to team meetings and rides, KTM Bike Industries stands behind our products with full confidence. 

We build bicycles that are fun, innovative, and noteworthy, and with so many genres of cycling, we are devoted to improving every make and model as new technologies are discovered to stay on the forefront on the cycling industry.

Over the past decade KTM has developed into an influential player in the global bicycle sector, and the leading European manufacturer producing well over 300,000 bicycles annually.

For more than 50 years later KTM and 'Made in Austria' has been synonymous with the highest quality and state-of-the-art technology available. 

We started small; in 1934, 25-year-old Hans Trunkenpolz opened a small shop to service his local community. As the demand for repairs started descending, he began to build bicycles, and light motorcycles. 

In 1964, the first KTM bike was born, and with it came the birth of today’s KTM Fahrrad GmbH, internationally known as KTM Bike Industries.

 Now, KTM Bike Industries has set it sights on North America.
