The American Motorcyclist Association announced that KTM North America will be the presenting sponsor for the 2011 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by KTM, on Friday, Nov. 18, at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa in Las Vegas.
"From the Penton motorcycles that established the KTM brand in America to the numerous championships that KTM riders have achieved in AMA-sanctioned off-road competition, KTM has made its mark on motorcycling in this country and abroad," AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman said. "We are pleased and very appreciative that KTM North America has joined the AMA in our backing of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame and our recognition of the esteemed class of 2011."
"KTM is excited to support and help elevate motorcycling's history and heritage with our support of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame and the class of 2011," said KTM North America President Jon-Erik Burleson. "Of course, with 'The Man' Roger DeCoster, team manager of KTM's U.S. Motocross and Supercross programs, taking the stage as a Motorcycle Hall of Fame Legend this year, we are particularly thrilled to put our name on the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by KTM."
