Birth of a Motorcycle – Behind the Scenes at KTM

03/18/2013 @ 1:43 pm, by Jensen Beeler2 COMMENTS


If you needed some bike-build porn for your Monday, then you have come to the right place. Taking a look behind the scenes of KTM’s factory in Mattighofen, Austria, Red Bull has put together a quick video on what goes into building the motorcycles that so often bear the energy drink company’s logos.

There may not be a lot of new insights given by the words of KTM Product Manager Joachim Sauer and KTM PR Manager Thomas Kuttruf, though there is some good two-wheeled romanticism going on here, but if you wanted a glimpse into KTM’s factory, with some well-done photography, here is your chance.

    KTM is currently my favourite OEM out there :D
    my new ride will be the KTM DUKE 390 :D
    Though the RC8 & Moto3 inspired 250cc Sports might make the cut ;)
    #2014 Can’t wait any more :) :)

    I like that KTM always has an edge to their bikes, and a sense that they are making bikes their own way.
    I enjoy the heck out of my 990 smr and have my fingers crossed that they’ll bring a 690 Duke R to the US, and/or a thumper based road race bike in the style of their moto3 racer.
