But there’s good news at KTM!

Austrian manufacturer KTM has reported a 34.1% increase in global motorcycle sales to 26,029 units in its first 2013 financial quarter to 31 March.

Commenting on the results, KTM chief executive Stefan Pierer said: “The successful launch of the new 1190 Adventure was crucial for the sales increase in Europe.” Market share for the brand grew by 9.4% in Europe to 7.8% overall, which is impressive, though many of these are off-road machines so that isn’t recognised in ‘registrations’.

Overland and adventure bike sales remain strong in Europe while the sports bike market continues to contract, but the real growth everywhere is with small machines.

KTM’s quarterly performance highlights include an amazing 424% growth in Asian markets where the 200 Duke is sold in India by KTM’s local partner Bajaj.
