LIVONIA, Mich. (January 8, 2007) ““ Pickups and motorcycles go together like sunshine and a summer afternoon. You can hardly think of one without associating the other. So it would be natural that KTM, a leading manufacturer of street and off-road motorcycles, would partner with ROUSH Performance to build one of the hottest trucks on the market ““ with or without a bike in the back.

ROUSH Performance is the leading builder of the Ford F-150, the most popular vehicle in history. The Livonia, Mich.-based company teamed up with KTM to add a unique signature style and performance components to create a truck like no other, one that will appeal to both riders and those drivers simply wanting to make their presence known on the road. It is a pairing of the best from the two-wheel world working with the best in the truck world, two winning motorsports entities known for their workmanship and results.

The standard features of this machine are anything but basic, and include a KTM/ROUSH-exclusive paint and graphics package and two-tone KTM-branded leather interior. The painted front bumper, chin spoiler, hood scoop and 20-inch chrome wheels with high-performance tires definitively set this F-150 apart from others on the street. The billet aluminum grill adds a touch of class, and intimidation if seen from behind you in the rear view mirror.

The truck will be available in a choice of 4×4 or 4×2 as well as Super Crew or Crew Cab models. The vehicle is powered by the stock Ford factory 5.4L, 3-valve engine which has 300 horsepower and 365 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood.

For those in a hurry to get that bike where it needs to go, one of the most popular upgrades is sure to be the addition of the ROUSHcharger™ supercharger system which boosts the horsepower to a monstrous 445 and 500 lb.-ft. torque. This system is completely covered by ROUSH’s industry-leading 3-year/36,000-mile warranty on all components.

KTM’s Ready To Race leadership brand position in extreme competition off-road motorcycles, its new street sport motorcycles and entry into the competition ATV market is solidly reflected in this partnership with ROUSH Performance.
