Go Cuckoo for KTM
Pull open any manufacturer’s gifts and accessories catalog and you’ll usually find the same kind of officially-branded items like key chains, beer mugs and iPhone cases. Most manufacturers offer similar items, with only the colors and logos to differentiate them. Once in a while however, manufacturers offer something that truly stands out. This is one of them.
Presenting the official KTM Cuckoo Clock from the Austrian company’s official PowerParts catalog in Europe. It may look like a gag gift, but according to KTM, it’s real.
Priced at £32.92 (US$55) in the U.K., the clock features piston-shaped pendulums, an antlered motorcycle helmet and, when it reaches the top of the hour, the doors open up and a KTM motorcycle pops out and revs its engine.
Unfortunately, the clock is not available in KTM’s North American catalog, so if someone over in Europe (or someone here willing to pay the shipping costs) were to pick one up, please let us know how it looks in person.
