ATK Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

ATK is an off-road motorcycle manufacturer in Centerville, Utah, U.S.A. ATK was founded by Austrian-born engineer Horst Leitner. In 1984 their very first motorcycle, serial #1, won the Barstow to Vegas desert race against a field of thousands.

In the following decades they have had numerous major victories in desert racing, dirt track events, enduro, ice racing and ATV racing.

Horst Leitner sold the company to Ken Wilkes in 1989, who soon added motocross machines to the existing lineup of enduros.

ATK Models include:
2009 Intimidator, available with 620cc and 700cc Maico two-stroke engines.
1997 605DS Outlaw, Rotax engine.
1997 250 WickedSister, watercooled.

Early in the piece they sold frame kits.

"As the only remaining off-road motorcycle manufacturer in the United States, ATK is still proud to put "Made in the U.S.A." on our vehicles." ~ atkusa.com
