expansion of buildings and capacity, KMT reports.

At the headquarters in Mattighofen, an increase in production capacity to more than 100,000 units is planned.

KTM expects further increases in sales and turnover for the business year 2014. Consequently, there will be a further increase in market shares, KTM says.
