Husqvarna & Husaberg Reunited after KTM BuyoutMotorcycle Industry News

Back in January, one of the largest stories throughout the motorcycle industry was the acquisition of Husqvarna by Pierer Industries AG, a holding company owned by Stefan Pierer, the CEO of KTM.

Now that Husqvarna is under the KTM umbrella, the Husky brand and Husaberg, which was purchased by KTM in 1995, will reunite. The two brands shared roots 25 years ago.

Speaking of the unity, Husqvarna says “Husqvarna will enter a positive new era by combining its own rich heritage with Husaberg’s state-of-the-art technology.”
