KTM have approached their major shareholder, Indian motorcycle manufacturer Bajaj, to increase their share-holding in the Austrian company from the current 30% to 90%. KTM are looking at selling their currently owned 60% for cash.

Bajaj have announced that they will buy up to 51% of the shares at this moment in KTM, giving them a majority share, and at a later stage increase their holdings to the 90%.

That would turn the Austrian motorcycle maker into an Indian brand.... The cash strapped KTM needed an influx of capital to remain competitive. Already Bajaj will be making KTM's 125cc motorcycles. Despite turning a profit, KTM's sales is down 16%.
