The Austrian bike manufacturer KTM announced their best ever, six-monthly sales figures today.
The orange-obsessed brand announced that it sold just over 70,000 units for the first six months of this year (70,469) which equates to an increase of over 28% compared to last year. That’s also only 500 bikes less than BMW managed for the same period. That’s quite an achievement.
With the fantastic success of the KTM Super Duke R being the tent-pole machine for the first half of the year, the RC125 and RC390 still to be made available for sale and next month’s shows in Cologne and Milan likely to see the official announcement of the 1290 Super Adventure (pictured), it’s looking like 2014 is going to be a pretty exciting year for the Mattighofen based firm.
So maybe – just maybe – they’ve finally got over the whole Ewan and Charley debacle.
