KTM has earned a reputation for building some of the capable off-road bikes on the planet. While their early racing efforts were focused more on motocross and enduro, KTM flat track bikes have become a regular sight at dirt ovals around the world. In fact, the winningest racer in American Flat Track (AFT) Singles is Pennsylvania’s Shayna Texter, who rides a factory KTM.
