affirmed the company's continued dominance of tough
KTM showed great class and expertise
as early as year one after it officially launched
its first superbike. Factory rider Stefan Nebal fought
his way to the title of vice champion on the 1190
RC8 R in the German superbike championships, which
are fiercely contested by riders of many nationalities.
All of these successes plus the number
of world championship titles rising to 165 in recent
months form a fruitful basis for success in the 2010

In addition to its clear commitment
to the offroad sector, the Austrian factory is also
set to reach another milestone in the coming year.
KTM presented the 'KTM 125' project in Milan and thereby
addressed everyone who has yet to enjoy the fabulous
experience of riding a motorcycle.
Two fascinating model studies show
that KTM is taking young bikers extremely seriously.
The ultimate KTM feeling
KTM presented a further exclusive new
product in the form of the 690 Duke R.
Following the success of the RC8 R,
SM R and Super Duke R models, the 70 HP single cylinder
is the logical newcomer to the exclusive R-model range.
The 690 Duke R underpins the clear KTM commitment
to single-cylinder motorcycles.
With an unflinching desire to ride
sporty motorcycles and its broadest ever range of
motorcycles for road and offroad use, KTM is all set
and 'Ready to Race'!
KTM is presenting a near series-ready,
four-stroke motocross race motorcycle with 350 cm³
at the EICMA 2009 in Milan. With this move, the sports
motorcycle specialists from Mattighofen, Austria define
a completely new path in Motocross.
Motor Sports and Development KTM lives
and breathes 100% motorsport. This is completely evident
the KTM Motocross Factory Team transporter again docks
at the factory in Mattighofen after a long race weekend.
Team boss: No-one less than MX multi World Champion
His commitment creates fantastic possibilities
for the factory because he is able to perfectly dovetail
development and motorsport and in doing so, assists
in writing a new chapter in the long, tradition-rich
history of the Austrian manufacturer’s significant
success in Offroad sport.
With all of his immense experience
and enormous energy, the meticulous Belgian is driving
a very special project, the results of which carry
the stamp of the MX legend right down to the smallest
detail as well as those of the powerful KTM genes.
It is this symbiosis that carries the promise of something
really special. It underlines KTM’s proven core
competence in the area of Motocross and is being proudly
presented to the public for the first time on the
occasion of the EICMA in the form of the new 350 cm³
With this pilot project version of
a completely new Motocrosser, KTM again demonstrates
the courage and determination to leave the beaten
path. Its benchmark data with 350 cm³, linkage
and injection are based on a broadly applied, permanently
ambitious development that is carried out always looking
the future. This is a radical new interpretation of
an existing structure with a clear goal: maximum sporting
success and enthusiastic customers!
Why 350cm³, injection and linkage?
When one observes KTM’s hugely successful 2009
Motocross season, it is hard to recognize any room
Marvin Musquin excelled in picking
up the MX2 title with teammate Rui Goncalves close
behind as MX2 vice world champion, Max Nagl triumphed
as vice world champion in the MX1 class and Steffi
Laier wrapped up the women’s world championship
title. But it is exactly this success story that provides
soil for KTM’s untiring will to advance –
and this is exactly the vision of the KTM Factory
Team – to continue to improve on their established
strengths and at the same time to explore a whole
This is “Ready to Race”
in the broadest possible context - The future
A new concept does not however mean
that KTM will place less importance on its traditional
models – KTM is still READY FOR TAKE OFF governed
by the will to win and the stop watch. Therefore for
the 2010 season, the well-known, newly presented 2010
models – the SX 250-F in MX2 and the SX450-F
in MX1 will be in the starting lists. And, as in 2009,
they will surely continue to celebrate great success
2010. Meanwhile the “Project-350” continues
to run at high pressure. With these moves, KTM’s
traditional obligation to its customers remains completely
valid: What the factory riders’ use on the track
is always also available for sale.
