The thought process of Stefan Pierer, the man who saved KTM
« on: December 12, 2013, 03:31:36 am »
Stefan Pierer On Roger DeCoster, Supercross, BMW, Husqvarna, Husaberg and the future

 KTMís Chief Operating Officer Stefan Pierer came to KTM 20 years ago when it was in the throws of bankruptcy. With calculated and careful moves, Piererís leadership turned KTM from an also-ran into the most powerful motorcycle racing company in the world. Under Stefan Piererís guidance sales increased to the point that KTM sold 108,000 motorcycle in 2012ómost of them offroad bikes. KTM is now the fastest growing motorcycle company in USA. Here are Stefan Piererís thoughts on a wide variety of subjects
