The forbidden place: Lifting the lid on KTM R&D

An extremely rare peek at the birthplace of orange motorcycles was afforded to a select few press at Mattighofen last week and as we can sometimes escape corporate binds here on the BLOG this is what we found in the depths of R&D …



MX in a scrapyard: Can Red Bull Breakers re-raise the eyebrow?

Last autumn an unusual motorsports event in the UK – one that glided under the radar – was ‘scrapped’. Literally. The first Red Bull Breakers took prominent British Motocross talents and threw them around the strangest racetrack seen for some time … in the depths of an English scrapyard, or ‘breakers yard’. The exhibition ‘invitational’ was so weird and something so far out of the leftfield that it seems hard to believe it actually happened.



Interview of the Month: Going Large – Marvin Musquin talks switching to the 450s

Watch an AMA Supercross Main Event and its now possible to spot three factory Red Bull KTMs in the premier 450 SX class. KTM boosted their 450 SX ranks for 2016 by giving 2015 East Coast SX Champion Marvin Musquin a path to ‘graduation’.



#inthisyear2006: Marc Coma wins his first Dakar Rally on a KTM

The Dakar Rally has exerted a special fascination for motorcycle fans for more than three-and-a-half decades. The heroes of the early years have never been forgotten.

Now into his second year in his current role, during which time we’ve seen the latest SX range released, we caught up with Casey to get a take on all things R&D.



The Dakar Factor: Interview with KTM Rally guru Stefan Huber

With the Dakar heading into its final stages we reflect on the comments made by the Red Bull KTM Rally Factory Racing Team Technical Manager, Stefan Huber, who gave us his inside line right before the race began. It was a busy build up, but with things in full swing and Price leading the KTM campaign at present, it’s interesting to look at his predictions coming into the race.



A factory kick off to the Supercross season

Paul Malin discusses the KTM SX Factory Edition Launch and AMA Supercross Team Introduction ahead of the new season.



The Goodwill Journey

Sometimes in KTM we hear of amazing accomplishments, or journeys people want to embark on, and some of the challenges people choose to face on a motorcycle are truly remarkable. Just under two years ago we at KTM HQ heard from Wissam Al Jayyoussi, who was planning a trip for charity that’s maybe the longest we’ve ever known.
