Is KTM Becoming The Master Of Merchandising?

It used to be Harley-Davidson who were the masters of merchandising. They were even rumored to make more money selling their name on products than making money selling their motorcycles. But it looks like another motorcycle manufacturer has caught up, and probably even surpassed the Milwaukee based company; KTM Open link in a new window.

KTM Toaster
Like most manufacturers, KTM started out with simple merchandising items, like baseball caps, t-shirts, polo shirts, mugs etc.

All very bland, every manufacturer had them. But quickly the Austrian company started adding stuff that were unique, and because they were unique, they became fast bestsellers.

In 2006/2007 the KTM Toaster catapulted KTM into the merchandising scene (source Open source link in a new window), quickly followed by many other well selling stuff.

And they've had a lot of other stuff, so much so that their catalog is quite big. It might not have reached Harley-Davidson proportions, but big nevertheless.

: At the very bottom of this very long list is one KTM merchandising item I don't think you'll find at a dealer or drugstore. However, this item is NSFW, I repeat NOT SAFE FOR WORK! If you are reading this article via the front page (where you see the last 7 articles), there will be a "click here to continue reading" line. If you're reading this article directly, you will see the NSFW item.

It helps of course that they have loyal, even fanatical, fans that will make everything orange and put the KTM logo on it:

Just have a look at several of the gift items below for a small selection of the KTM merchandising items we've featured in the past. And if you think they're slowing down, running out of ideas, think again. The KTM dog bowl has been a favorite of mine, and yes, I've got one for my dogs.
