KTM released a statement through Motorcycle Trader to clarify its position in the sale of the Husqvarna brand by BMW.
The statement reads:
The new Pierer Industrie AG company has taken over in full Husqvarna Motorcycles (Husqvarna Italy and Husqvarna US) from the BMW Group.
In the next six months ahead, Pierer Industrie AG will evaluate the co-operation potential with the KTM/Husaberg Group.
A relaunch of the Husqvarna brand with a new product range is planned for the international motorcycle exhibition at EICMA 2013.
