In the 1990s, riders of Husaberg motorcycles won more world championships than many other popular brands of motorcycles. Despite the speed and fame of these bikes, many long-time motorcyclists have never even seen or ridden a Husaberg. The Husaberg company is an enigma, never making more than 1,000 units in a year but claiming many high-profile wins. The company began in Sweden, but after the Austrian motorcycle company KTM bought Husaberg, the motorcycles were manufactured in Mattighofen, Austria. KTM's purchase of Husaberg in 1995 was the answer to long-term reliability problems that had plagued the bikes for years. The KTM engineers perfected the design of these popular motorcycles, crafting them into reliable, coveted machines. Nowadays, Husabergs roll off the line right next to KTM motorcycles, even though the Husabergs are designed separately in Sweden, the homeland of these great motorcycles.
