Mass production has started in Mattighofen and in the future, up to 15.000 Husqvarna Motorcycles will be manufactured in Upper Austria every year.

The recent acquisition of the motorcycle brand Husqvarna by the KTM Group will bring a further upgrade to the production site in Mattighofen.

The Members of the Board of KTM AG, as well as the staff of the main plant followed with great pleasure the production of the first Husqvarna that was assembled in Mattighofen. KTM CEO Stefan Pierer explains the corporate strategy as follows: “By the acquisition of the brand Husqvarna, the KTM Group expects an additional growth of approximately 15,000 motorcycles in the next few years.”


On October 7, 2013, the first production day, approximately 75 units of the new four-stroke model range (250cc – 450cc) were assembled.
