On May 23, 2023, KTM’s Italian subsidiary confirmed that it will once again attend EICMA 2023 after having spent the past couple of years away. The Milan motorcycle show is a high point on the international motorcycle show calendar and is currently scheduled to take place from November 7 through 12, 2023.
To celebrate its return, the house of Mattighofen is planning to showcase what it describes as a brand new stand concept, along with all its latest models. Naturally, Team Orange will also be keen to celebrate all of its latest victories across all the motorsports series that it participates in, including MotoGP, the Dakar and other rallies, and of course motocross.
“It is truly a pleasure to announce our return to EICMA a in a very important year for us. We believe it is essential to be present in one of the most important sector events on the international scene.
