KTM The Fastest Growing Motorcycle Company In US For 2013
November retail sales growth figures for KTM North America, Inc. have put the motorcycle company out front as the fastest growing motorcycle company in the US for 2013.
KTM’s November unit sales rose 49% compared to the same month in 2012 and year-to-date numbers at the end of November showed KTM leading growth with a 28.8% increase. This sales growth makes KTM the fastest growing motorcycle company in the US for 2013.
According to Brad Hagi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for KTM North America, credit for this performance is due in part to dealers being able to put models like the SXS Mini’s, SX Factory Editions, ISDE bikes, 990 Adventure Baja Editions, and 690 Dukes into the hands of consumers. With the release of the 1190 Adventure models and the 1290 Super Duke R, we eagerly await to see if KTM can carry this momentum into 2014, especially considering the $17,000 price tag of the Super Duke R.
