How to Read a KTM VIN

You can find out some quick information just by looking at your KTM’s VIN number.

Refer to the key below to decode yours.

First 3 Characters: KTM Word Manufacturer Identifier (WMI)

The first 3 digits of the VIN tell you where the bike was manufactured, who made it, and what type of vehicle it is.

For KTM, a common combination is:

  • 1st Character: V for Austria.
  • 2nd Character: B for KTM.
  • 3rd Character: K for motorcycle.

If your KTM has a VIN that starts with PNG, you’ll know that your bike was manufactured in India rather than Austria.

Characters 4-5 typically represent the class of bike, and may include:
