KTM has built a dedicated space to honor and showcase its extensive history, with a nod toward the future.
Begin press release:
Four weeks before the official opening, the impressive and impossible to miss KTM Motohall is already in magnificent form. The completely newly built showcase of the leading European motorcycle manufacturer is cosmopolitan and ready to launch its fantastic new KTM brand experience, geared not only at motorcycle enthusiasts.
The KTM Motohall in Mattighofen will celebrate its official opening on May 11 and 12. Alongside an extraordinary program of fringe events, the entire exhibition and brand experience, built on a 10,000-m² site, is open to all visitors.
The spectacular exhibition center was created by a team of architects from Upper Austria, consisting of Hofbauer: Architect working in close collaboration with “X-Architekten”. Both the architecture and exhibition concept manage to convey the spirit of READY TO RACE very successfully: Orange Spirit as a walk-through spatial experience. The exhibition has been created by the scenography experts ATELIER BRÜCKNER: The exhibition’s architecture, graphics, lighting, media, and content all speak the same language— the language of KTM. The route guides visitors through the three exhibition levels and showcases the brand’s core values. Visitors are able to witness the complete design process from sketch to finished product firsthand with videos illustrating all the technical details. On a purpose-built sharp bend, around 70 street and off-road bikes compete in a race leading you to the highlight of the exhibition: The “Heroes of Racing”. With impressive, dynamic images, a 360° video installation celebrates the champions of racing. Last but not least, the people behind the brand share their passion for KTM and give the company a face. A rookie tour for our younger guests adds to the exhibition tour. Throughout all levels of the exhibition, children get to explore and experience the world of KTM for themselves, accompanied by a booklet that they can take home as a memento. They are part of the Orange Family too.
During the realization of this unique visitor concept all opportunities were harnessed, allowing a visit to the KTM Motohall to be a rewarding experience in every respect. In addition to the 130 underground parking spaces and a large additional car park including bus parking, there is also a separate parking lot for motorcyclists on the opposite side of the road.
A 300-m² shop, offeringeverything fans could wish for, is barrier-free and can be accessed without a ticket to the exhibition. Technical enthusiasts will love the “living” workshop situated in the basement of the KTM Motohall, where they can watch live restorations being carried out by experts. Whilst parents can have a technical chat with a pro, children from the age of six can try out new technologies such as virtual reality, 3D printers, and laser plotters in the Innovation Lab, a place where creativity knows no bounds. The “Pit Box” snack bar offers a selection of light refreshments, whilst the “Garage” restaurant in the adjacent townhouse serves a host of innovative and quality culinary delights.
