KTM has been producing high-quality bicycles in Mattighofen (Austria) for more than 50 years.

The trend towards e-bikes is opening up tremendous opportunities here for the future as a way to attract additional guests and develop Upper Austria into Europe’s leading e-bike destination for routes by waterways.
