Pierer Mobility AG and Indian manufacturer Bajaj Auto own KTM AG (previously KTM Sportmotorcycle AG), an Austrian motorcycle and sports vehicle manufacturer. It was established in 1992, though its roots may be traced back to 1934. KTM AG is now the parent company of the KTM Group, which includes several motorcycle brands.
Off-road motorbikes are what KTM is renowned for (enduro, motocross and supermoto). It has been producing street motorcycles and developing sports automobiles, like the X-Bow, since the late 1990s. KTM sold almost as many city bikes as off-road bikes in 2015.
KTM has been Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer for four years in a row, starting in 2012. The firm is one of the most well-known off-road motorbike manufacturers in the world. KTM sold 203,423 motorcycles globally in 2016.
Johann (Hans) Trunkenpolz, an Austrian engineer, established a fitter’s and auto repair company in Mattighofen in 1934. He began marketing DKW motorbikes in 1937 and Opel vehicles the following year. Kraftfahrzeug Trunkenpolz Mattighofen was the name of his shop, but it was not registered. During the Second World War, his wife ran the firm, which was growing mostly due to diesel engine maintenance.
After the war, demand for repair services plummeted, prompting Trunkenpolz to consider building his own motorbikes. His first motorbike, the R100, was developed as a prototype in 1951. Except for the Rotax engines, which were constructed by Fichtel & Sachs, all of the motorcycle’s components were built in-house. The R100 was first mass-produced in 1953. Motorcycles were produced at a pace of three per day with only 20 personnel.
