KTM North America has appointed Ryan Bauer as the Mid-West Area Sales Manager.

As a life-long motorcycle enthusiast, two-wheeled machines have been a large part of Bauer’s life and the inspiration behind a professional career in the motorcycle industry that has led to over 20 years related field experience.

He started his motorcycle career as a District Manager and moved on to work with several key companies within the Powersports industry before finding his dream job at KTM.

Ryan Bauer says: “I have always been passionate about the KTM brand for both its advances in the off-road and street markets.

“The progress and enhancements KTM has made to its products over the past few years caught my attention and I couldn’t be happier to work for such a leading motorcycle company.”

Tom Etherington (KTM National Sales Manager) says: “Ryan (Bauer) comes to KTM with a wealth of industry knowledge, having worked with several competitive brands over the years.

“As a native of the mid-west, and currently living close to Chicago, Ryan is intimately familiar with the area for which he’ll be responsible and most assuredly, will make a great addition to the KTM team.”
