KTM Concepts by FH Joanneum

Industrial Design students at Austrian FH Joanneum University have created six futuristic vehicles for the KTM brand. The projects include land, water and air vehicles and share the brand’s design language.

The projects were completed in July 2008 and presented in September 2008 and share the typical brand’s modern design language with minimal surfaces, sharp edges and the signature orange hue.

Among the involved university staff members were Prof. Dr.Georg Wagner (Engineering), Sebastien Stassin (Project coordinator), Phil Perez, Marc Ischepp, Christian Hahn-Wörnle, Salzburg, Werner Kleissner and Walter Lach (modeling).

"In 2018 innovative race events are revolutionizing the motor sports industry. ‘Devon Run’: every weekend environmentally-friendly lightweight vehicles, propelled by electric motors, go for passing manoeuvers on spectacular inner city race tracks – defined by the given infrastructure and modular curves. KTM dominates these events with the sr85 deuce."

KTM CX Concept


Design Team: Christof Lahner and Miroslaw Leczek

KTM CX is a racing vehicle that brings the moto-x spirit to the water. Surface tension is used to recreate the water’s surface as everchanging off-road terrain.

When stopping, the cx rider sinks into the water up to her/his knees and sits in the water as if on a surfboard.

[Updated] Design Team: Christoph Albiez and Thomas Perz

The KTM Ascender is a gas turbine-propelled flight vehicle that is supported in the air by three rotors, which allow great agility. With a flight duration of 30 minutes and a maximum speed of 120 km/h, spectacular races similar to the Red Bull Air Race are possible.

KTM 360°

Design Team: Markus Ofner, Anna Gynes, Berhard Kaliauer


The KTM 360° is a super light, silent electric bike. It allows you to apply any trick – even the fork turns 360 degrees – and the foldable seat gives you the opportunity to cruise around.
