KTM announces worldwide partnership with Athena and GET products
KTM, the sports motorcycle specialist from Austria is pleased to announce a worldwide partnership with Athena, leading manufacturer of motorcycle cylinders, gaskets, pistons and makers of GET ECU’s, data acquisition systems and video devices for motorsports.
“What started with a good relationship when Claudio de Carli joined the KTM factory team management structure when Tony Cairoli first signed with us in 2010 has now developed into a productive and rewarding global partnership,” said Pit Beirer, Head of KTM Motorsports.
Beirer also confirmed that a solid partnership with Athena also represents a further strengthening of the three-way thrust of KTM’s factory racing activities: with De Carli as manager of the MX1 World Championship factory team, Stefan Everts as head of the MX2 World Championship factory team and Roger DeCoster as manager of the Red Bull KTM factory team for SX and MX in the USA. He said Athena’s high tech devices are instrumental in helping to maintain and monitor the on-track activities of the factory teams and suggests to KTM dealer network outlets and enthusiasts that they use them.
Athena Spa works out of three plants in Alonte, Italy, occupying a total area of 40,000 square meters of factory floor where it manufactures gaskets, stamped and pressed metal components, aluminum cylinders for internal combustion engines and other engine hard-parts. The dedicated R&D plant is home of the finest developments and the GET technology products. Athena also has manufacturing and/or sales and distribution facilities in Spain, Brazil, India and the USA.
