KTM, Husqvarna and GASGAS to suspend production due to Covid-19

Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, KTM, along with Husqvarna and GASGAS, will suspend production for two weeks from March 30 to April 10 due to concerns around transmission of Coronavirus.

An announcement by parent company Pierer Mobility AG states the measure has been prompted by a possible supply chain interruption from companies in northern Italy, where the pandemic has hit particularly severely.

However, at this point it doesn’t look like supply of bikes to dealers will be affected. The announcement states: “The availability of all models is guaranteed for the upcoming start of the season in the worldwide dealer network.
