OTW Advocate Dimitri Coste Shoots for KTM

It's no secret that OTW Advocate Dimitri Coste is a motorcycle enthusiast as well as a professinal photographer. Take a look at Dimitri's shoot for Austrian cycle company KTM.

Here's a brief history on the company:

The company was founded in 1934 by engineer Hans Trunkenpolz in Mattighofen. It started out as a metalworking shop and was namedKraftfahrzeug Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. It wasn't until 1953 that KTM began production of motorcycles. With just 20 employees, motorcycles were built at the rate of three per day. In 1955, a businessman Ernst Kronreif became shareholder of the company, on acquiring a sizable portion of the company. It was then renamed Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. Trunkenpolz died unexpectedly in 1989. During these early years of motocycle production at KTM, almost all components for the motorcycles were built in-house by KTM.
