KTM is looking for a new CEO!

I read that the KTM CEO is buying it to get away from Bajaj. Plus he gets a new BMW designed factory in Italy were production cost apparently is much less.

BMW is not making anything with Husky, relatively speaking, so they are letting it go cheap.

KTM will be looking for a new CEO...get your resume in there!

This is all very confusing
And what I really want to know is, will the Nuda 900 be sold here in the USA?

I think it sounds good that the KTM ceo wants out from under the coming Bajaj ownership and into Husqvarna as a competitor! I would love to see Husky go after KTM up and down the line and dump the bmw stuff and get back to Husqvarna designs! I just hope he has investors with deep pockets after bmw ran off so many of the original husky dealers. The translation below is a bit confusing, I think it says that Stefan Pierer and his group own WP suspension and would bring that to Husqvarna with them???

Here's another source
http://solomoto.es/1/1359562650/actu...a#.UQnAzL80WSo


"Since the brand Indian Bajaj became a shareholder of KTM , in 2007, with 14.5%, its president Stefan Pierer never been entirely comfortable . When in 2011 the Indian brand bought more shares to reach 39% of the Austrian brand, and in March 2012 to reach 47%, Pierer felt even more uncomfortable, because presumably the brand india buy more shares and eventually leaving him side in no time, taking control of "their" ship.

It was a matter of time that Bajaj pass to have a 51% minimum, to shed Pierer , but before that happens, Stefan will step forward: sell all its shares to Bajaj, and with the money you receive buy Husqvarna . The operation is done through the company Pierer, Cross Industries AG , and is this that becomes the owner of Husqvarna shortly.

Cross Industries AG is a conglomerate created by Pierer, which brings in its structure to 50.6% of KTM, the brand Pankl to mechanical components, Wethje signature of carbon fiber components, suspension WP and signing Kiska design . What can this mean? Well that KTM are no longer designed by Kiska and not equip more WP suspensions, that would work for Husqvarna.

The operation is to be announced shortly, so we must be vigilant."

Building new Huskys will be the easy part.
Building a dealer network...... Not so easy.

Here's the Cross Industries homepage, http://www.crossindustries.at/ WP suspension is listed there, it would be great if they buy Husky and bring WP with them to Husqvarna

That's been the big hold up with Piaggio. Having owned 2 aprilias and 1 Ducati, I'd take another aprilia over another Ducati in a HEARTBEAT, but other then me being lucky enough to have one hell of an aprilia dealer near me, it scares some people off.

My closest BMW dealer sells Husky's, and I have a KTM dealer close by as well. Have to see how that part shakes out.

IMHO this deal say's something about Husqvarna but a whole lot more about the future for KTM. What does a KTM majority owner Bajaj mean for the quality and future of KTM.... we'll see.
