KTM Motohall opens Saturday
KTM looks forward with great anticipation to the opening of this completely new KTM brand world located right in the center of the company’s hometown. Visitors to the KTM Motohall can expect an exciting supporting program from 9.00am on Saturday morning when, the Mattighofen town center is transformed into an enthusiastic paddock experience that will offer an emotional experience for the entire family. MCNews.com.au hopes to be able to visit the new repository of KTM history some time in the near future.
At the opening there will be an opportunity for a close-up and personal encounter with the big stars of racing. Dakar Rally winners Matthias Walker and Sam Sunderland, and of-froad hero Giovanni Sala will answer questions during the on-stage interviews, and they will also be available to sign autographs for visitors.
Roger De Coster, one of the great Motocross Sports legends who lives in the USA, has announced he will be present. Heroes of the asphalt, MotoGP rider Mika Kallio, ex-Superbike King Martin Bauer and the up-and-coming junior racers Maximilian and Andreas Kofler will all be present at the big opening.
Stunt rider Rok Bagoroš will be riding his KTM DUKEs the entire weekend to show visitors just what pure action is like. A bike simulator with VR goggles, and even a KTM X-BOW simulator will be there to offer visitors the opportunity to test them for themselves.
A supervised children’s course awaits the fans of tomorrow, while inside the KTM Motohall there is the unique Innovation Lab that will be a big highlight for all those interested in technical experimentation.
Above all, the KTM Motohall offers around 3000m2 of exhibition space, set in an atmosphere of inspiring external architecture and interior design features that are poised to provide a series of sensations. The collection of both historical and cutting-edge motorcycles, and the unique collection of world championship bikes will work their magic on visitors far beyond the opening weekend of the museum.
Another reason to make the pilgrimage to ‘KTM Platz 1’ is a visit to the brand new “Garage” restaurant. It is here, that in contrast to the usual high-speed mode of all things KTM, that it will be possible to enjoy culinary excellence at leisure.
In addition to the parking garage at KTM Platz 1, the car park at Wasseracker, and a private motorcycle parking lot directly opposite the KTM Motohall, there will also be the opportunity to use the KTM employee parking spaces behind the Spare Parts Centre on May 11-12. There will be a shuttle service at this location, which will operate every 15 minutes between the hours of 09:00 and 18:00 on the museum’s two opening days.
