The KTM Motohall in Mattighofen will celebrate its official opening on May 11 and 12, alongside an extraordinary program of fringe events, with the entire exhibition and brand experience built on a 10,000m² site, which is open to all visitors.

The exhibition center was created by a team of architects from Upper Austria, consisting of Hofbauer: Architect working in close collaboration with “X-Architekten”. Both the architecture and exhibition concept manage to convey the spirit of ‘Ready to Race’ very successfully, with a ‘Orange Spirit’ as a walk-through spatial experience.

The exhibition has been created by the scenography experts Atelier Bruckner and the exhibition’s architecture, graphics, lighting, media, and content all speak the same language— the language of KTM. The route guides visitors through the three exhibition levels and showcases the brand’s values.

Visitors are able to witness the complete design process from sketch to finished product firsthand with videos illustrating all the technical details. On a purpose-built sharp bend, around 70 street and off-road bikes compete in a race leading you to the highlight of the exhibition – the “Heroes of Racing”. With impressive, dynamic images, a 360° video installation celebrates the champions of racing.

Last but not least, the people behind the brand share their passion for KTM and give the company a face. A rookie tour for younger guests adds to the exhibition tour. Throughout all levels of the exhibition, children get to explore and experience the world of KTM for themselves, accompanied by a booklet that they can take home as a memento.

In addition to the 130 underground parking spaces and a large additional car park including bus parking, there is also a separate parking lot for motorcyclists on the opposite side of the road.

A 300m² shop, offering everything fans could wish for, is barrier-free and can be accessed without a ticket to the exhibition. Technical enthusiasts will love the “living” workshop situated in the basement of the KTM Motohall, where they can watch live restorations being carried out by experts.

While parents can have a technical chat with a pro, children from the age of six can try out new technologies such as virtual reality, 3D printers, and laser plotters in the Innovation Lab, a place where creativity knows no bounds. The “Pit Box” snack bar offers a selection of light refreshments, while the “Garage” restaurant in the adjacent townhouse serves a host of innovative and quality culinary delights.
