KTM has just expanded it’s range of brands by purchasing a controlling stake in Gas Gas.
Purchasing Gas Gas gives KTM even more access to parts of the off-road market, particularly trials and premium off-road machines but Gas Gas also owns e-bike manufacturer Torrott so it gives KTM easy access into that rapidly emerging market.
The press release stated:
GasGas and Torrot electric vehicle products will be sold alongside KTM and Husqvarna machinery in its wide dealer network.
“A co-operation was signed and both partners see this as a starting point for a bright future of the international well-known brand GasGas. New models will be developed alongside the Trial and Enduro bikes of GasGas
“As part of the Joint Venture the production of GasGas products and Torrot electric vehicles will be continued in Girona/Spain.
“It is intended that GasGas will be added, alongside KTM and HUSQVARNA Motorcycles & eBikes as third brand to the strong sales network of the KTM Industries group (PIERER Mobility group).”
