Are you a fan of exclusive road bikes? Then KTM might be the brand for you. Although the Austrian brand is mainly known for its off-road motorcycles, nowadays they also produce beautiful road motorcycles. KTM has been one of the best-selling motorcycle brands in Europe in recent years.

History of KTM motorcycles

KTM is an originally Austrian motorcycle brand that was founded by Hans Trunkenpotz. In the beginning, KTM stood for Kraftfahrzeuge Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. In 1953, motorcycle enthusiast and businessman Ernst Kronreif became a shareholder in the company and the acronym stood for Kronreif Trunkenpolz Mattighofen.

The first motorcycle was built in 1949; the KTM 100L. From 1953 - after the arrival of Kronreif - KTM became successful in building and selling mopeds, motorcycles and light motorcycles up to 147cc. In the following years, KTM developed into a builder of powerful offroad motorcycles, with which it achieved great success in competitions in the 1970s and 1980s.

In 1991, KTM went bankrupt and the company was split into parts, one of which was KTM Sportmotorcycles GmbH. This division brought the KTM Duke onto the market in 1994. This was the first machine from KTM that was also suitable for public roads and became a sales success. Today, KTM is one of the world's leading manufacturers of off-road motorcycles in both two and four-stroke versions.

Why ride KTM?

If you ask KTM riders why they have chosen this brand, you will get different responses. We list the most frequently mentioned reasons:


The lines of the new generation of KTM motorcycles are clean and angular. They have a very futuristic, but above all timeless appearance. In any case, you will always be noticed on a KTM.

Choice of models

The fact that KTM is one of the best-selling motorcycle brands in Europe is also due to the introduction of the Duke. This "hooligan of the motorcycles" is available as an entry-level model for the progressive motorcycle licence (125 and 390 Duke), as Duke 690 and 690 R and 1290 Super Duke R.


The hollow, heavy roar of the KTM exhaust is the most beautiful sound on earth for the enthusiast. Many KTMs are of an "aftermarket" exhaust that not only look better, but produce an even more beautiful sound.

Popular KTM Models

This Austrian motorcycle brand has earned its spurs in motocross and has only been active in the Netherlands with road bikes since 2000. KTM makes no concessions. The KTM slogan is not for nothing: Ready to Race! The motorcycles are built for performance and made with the best materials. The aggressive design and striking colors (orange!) make the new KTMs very recognisable on the street scene.

The motorcycle press is wildly enthusiastic about the various KTM models. For many journalists, KTM is setting a new standard for naked bikes.

KTM has introduced a modest number of models to the market in recent years. Almost every year, existing models are brought out in an improved version. The popular Duke, for example, is already in its fourth generation. We list three of the most famous KTM models.


The single-cylinder Duke was built from 1994 to 199, the Duke II from 1999 to 2006, and in spring 2008 the 690 Duke (unofficially the Duke III) appeared. The Duke was the answer to the increased demand for Supermotos and was assembled from parts of proven off-road models. The 690 Duke is a sprinter of the purest kind. It weighs less than 150 kilos and the 70 hp engine is - when you leave the highway - invincible. Accelerating, braking, stopping, on the gas, off the gas, steering, popping ... riding the Duke is a joy!


The KTM 1190 Adventure appeared at Dutch dealers in 2012 and is based on the 950 Adventure with which Meoni won the 2002 Dakar Rally. For many motorcycle enthusiasts, this is the ultimate motorcycle. Not only an allroad, but also a thoroughbred sports bike. Unlike BMW's R1200GS and Yamaha's XT1200Z Super Ténéré, the 1190 Adventure has chain drive and no shaft. The reason? KTM always goes for performance and the chain weighs less, which makes for less power loss. By the way, compared to the BMW and the Yamaha, the KTM has 25 and 38 more horsepower respectively at 150 hp!

690 SMC R

Relatively rare in the street scene, but a wonderful motorcycle: the KTM 690 SMC R. When building it, KTM thought mainly about performance. It weighs only 140.5 kg and has a powerful single cylinder with 67 hp. Race ready, suitable for everyday use, with fantastic design and state-of-the-art technology.
