November sales for KTM were up 49% compared to November 2012. YTD numbers show KTM is up 28.8 for the year with a month left.

Brad Hagi Vice President of Sales and Marketing for KTM North America:

“Credit for this amazing performance is due to the excellent new product we have brought to market and to the increased effort for KTM by our dealer network,”

For the past 3 years our dealers have risen to every opportunity we have put before them—SXS Mini’s, SX Factory Editions, ISDE Bikes, 990 Adventure Baja Editions, 690 Dukes—and customers have responded well. I can’t wait to see how our dealers perform with the new 1190 Adventure models and the 1290 Super Duke R. To every KTM dealer and their staff – you have my personal thanks for your dedication, energy and effort in making KTM the fastest growing brand in 2013.”
No mention of Duke 390 or the RC's has me a little worried, but the growth is good and demand will only add leverage to our cause. So go make noise at your local KTM retailer ;)

Is it actually the fastest growing motorcycle company in the US, or are you just asking if that is true?

I can see why KTM is doing so well though. I have seen more and more talk about all the KTM bikes on the internet but I think that hype is behind how available the KTM bikes are in the US, which probably means that KTM has more room for growth.

Kind of depends what statistics you look at, its true they have grown large in the past year but Yamaha's WR450 outstripped KTM here in Australia by 300 something more units sold. The 390 wont appear in figures until mid year 2014 as they wouldnt have been admitted yet.

KTM is also growing in India. I think India is the second largest bike market to the US, but for KTM they could end up selling more in India than the US just because of the brand recognition in US compared to the brand recognition in India.

And likely they'll be able to sell more of all their bikes even the high performance ones. I doubt high performance bike sales in India can compare to the U.S., it won't even come anywhere close.

For November 2013 KTM shows a 49% increase over November 2012 in the USA and that is without several hot ticket items like Duke 390/200, not to mention the RC's. Next years numbers should be MASSIVE

KTM is the ONLY bike compay I've even seen with a link for "dealer application" on their website.
I would like to be a dealer and be able to order all the bikes that I wanted such as Duke 390, RC390, Supermoto 390, Duke 690 and Super Duke.

Oh yes I would also order some MX bikes and enduros.
