This classic motorcycle and sports card brand hails from Austria but has a massive international following.
Though they make bikes and cars, they are most well known for their off road motorbikes, specifically Enduro, Motocross and Supermoto. And they are currently the largest manufacturers of motorcycles in Europe, selling over 200,000 motor vehicles in 2016.
Though LTM was officially formed in 1992, this company has roots going back to the 1930s, when Johann Trunkenpolz set up his car repair shop. Trunkenpolz changed up his business plan, when sales dropped after World War two ended, he decided to manufacturer his own vehicles and released his first bike in 1951.
The KTM brand won its first Motocross World Championship in 1974, won by Guennady Moisseev. But by 2016 KTM had won over 260 championship titles, and is therefore one of the most successful brands in the Motorsports industry.
