Genuine KTM spare parts and accessories to cater for your needs. It began as a dirty ol' metalworking/repair shop in 1934, kick-started by an engineer named Hans Trunkenpolz. Over the next few years KTM became one of the largest motorbike and car repair workshops in Upper Austria. It was 1951 when KTM began developing its first motorcycle - the R-100. It was considered an engineering success and created quite a stir in the motorcycle industry. They built a dedicated manufacturing plant in Mattighofen and officially founded KTM - which stands for "Kronreif, Trunkenpolz, Mattighofen" - the two founders names and the place where it all began.
