KTM has always been successful in converting Sunday track wins to sales, so maybe it has something to do with its MotoGP involvement, although they will pull out of supplying the Moto2 chassis from next year.
Perhaps it is the right mix of motorcycles that is KTM’s strength.
Despite its MotoGP involvement, the company has spurned the sagging super bike market.
Instead, their line-up is comprised of high-performing, modern-styled supermotos, naked, sports tourers and adventure bikes.
Whatever they are doing, it might be time for other manufacturers to look at the KTM sales model.
