About KTM

A story of rags to riches, the KTM garage arose from the ashes of post-war Austria. They built their first motorcycle, the R100, in 1951 and won their first racing trophy in 1954. KTM introduced Enduro motorcycles in 1964 and enjoyed years of success, but like many other European names, they went bust in the 1980s. Re-launched under new ownership in 1992, KTM released the famous "Duke" range of road bikes in 1994. Their signature orange livery was introduced in 1996, and they have since gone from strength to strength, dominating off-road events in motocross, cross-country, enduro, super enduro, supermoto and dual-sport.

They have since acquired two Swedish motorbike companies, Husaberg and Husqvarna, and the Indian company Bajaj. Today if you attend any off-road event, the popularity of orange dirt bikes is immediately apparent (beneath the mud).

Based on their sporting successes, their aggressively sporty road bikes are increasingly fashionable. Recently they've moved into a similar four-wheel niche with the X-Bow sports car. KTM is also producing the world's first electric off-roader.

KTM Motorcycle Tyres

Tyres change the way a bike handles more than anything else, but tyres that grip in the mud can be too aggressive on tarmac roads and cause scary shaking when you try to decelerate at 70mph (or worse). The "right" tyres depend on the bike, the weather and the terrain. Often you will fit different ones to front and rear, and they must work well together.

Specialist tyre suppliers, like us at Protyre, understand these motorcycling requirements and offer a full range of trusted brands, same-day fitting and free advice on how they will affect performance, safety, braking, fuel economy, noise and comfort. They also provide quick economical MOTs to help keep you on the road, and off it.
