While much of the competition floundered in 2011, KTM was busy making money.
In an era where high-profile Japanese competitors, and even some European manufacturers, are seeing sales slid, KTM posted a 22.4 per cent improvement in sales in 2011, a company news release reports.
In case you’re wondering, that works out to 81,200 units sold, up from 66,327 in 2010. The company’s turnover increased 13.4 per cent, to 526.8 million Euros, up from 464.4 million Euros. After taxes, net profit was up 20.7 per cent, from 15.9 million Euros to 20.7 million Euros.
The company’s success was due in part to the popularity of the new 125cc Duke.
