Why choose a KTM bike?
Choosing a KTM bike is a wise decision for any discerning cyclist. KTM, as a brand, is renowned as a flagship in the motorcycle world and is characterized by high standards of quality, durability, and performance. The Austrian brand has successfully transferred all its knowledge and experience to its bicycle division. Each bike showcases Austrian engineering excellence and offers cyclists a unique combination of style, functionality, and robustness that surpasses many models in its category.
The intriguing history of KTM
KTM's origins date back to 1934 when Austrian engineer Hans Trunkenpolz opened a metalworking factory in Mattighofen. After World War II, he began producing his first motorcycles. It was in the 1960s that bicycle production commenced. This Austrian company quickly established itself as a force in the industry, known for its innovative designs and craftsmanship. The late 20th century marked a turning point for KTM with the introduction of its groundbreaking range of mountain bikes.
KTM takes pride in its "Made in Austria" policy, manufacturing each bike by hand in its home country. This positions KTM as one of the few European brands to adopt this approach. Thanks to its commitment to local production quality, KTM has not only gained a fan base worldwide but has also won numerous awards in the industry.

For speed enthusiasts, the KTM Revelator Lisse model stands out for its perfect aerodynamics and lightness, which have allowed it to achieve numerous victories in international races, showcasing the meticulous engineering behind its design.
Mountain Bike Models
The Austrian manufacturer has successfully infused its mountain bikes with the expertise gained from the most challenging motorcycle competitions, such as the Dakar Rally, where it has been present for years and achieved great success
The KTM Scarp, a best-selling model, stands out. This cross-country bike is one of the lightest full-suspension machines on the market and boasts above-average componentry in its category. Its lightweight construction, sporty design, and suspension system make it an excellent choice for aggressive terrains.
Another prime example of KTM's expertise is the Myroon model, a fast mountain bike with great braking power for a fast and dynamic riding experience.
The advantages of buying a refurbished KTM bike
Purchasing a refurbished bike offers three main advantages:
Economic Benefit: By opting to buy a used, refurbished KTM bike from Tuvalum, you can save anywhere from 20% to 60% compared to the price of a new bike.
Mechanical Inspection: While it's possible to buy a used KTM bike from an individual seller, most platforms and second-hand marketplaces do not guarantee the condition of the items sold. This means you have to trust an unknown seller and run the risk of buying a bike with hidden damages. At Tuvalum, all bikes undergo meticulous inspection and refurbishment by our team of mechanics. We ensure that each bike meets the same technical standards and approvals required by the European Union for new bikes. Additionally, refurbished KTM bikes come with a one-year mechanical warranty and an 18-month buyback guarantee.
Positive Impact on Sustainability: Opting for a refurbished KTM bike has a positive influence on sustainable development. By choosing a bike that has already been manufactured, you contribute to reducing the carbon footprint associated with buying a new bike. Did you know that a new bike generates a carbon footprint of 300 kilograms of CO2 during its production?
