Austrian brand KTM has built a reputation in the high-performance street and off-road sports motorcycles boasting motorsports-proven technology. The marque's early years date back to 1951 when founder Hans Trunkenpolz made his first prototype with businessman Ernst Kronreif, the R100 which featured a 98cc engine. The R125 Tourist was then introduced in 1953 after the company was renamed to Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen (KTM). Years later, KTM has won more than 200 world championships in the Motocross World Championship and in the grueling Dakar Rally, making it one of the most successful brands in motorsports.
In the Philippines, Adventure Cycle Philippines, Inc., a member of the Ayala Group of Companies, has become the local official distributor in 2016. They offer the enduro motocross, sports touring, supermoto, naked, and supersport bikes by KTM. All the models promise to bring motorsports-proven technology to the road. The local lineup is composed of the 200 Duke, 390 Duke, RC 200, RC 390, 790 Duke, 790 Adventure S, 790 Adventure R, 1290 Super Duke GT, 1290 Super Duke R, and more.
