In American motocross, one man played a significant role in developing a series of dirt bikes. Horst Leitner, born near Salzburg in Austria in 1942, was an ISDT and GrandPrix bike racer and won four ISDT gold medals in the International Six Days Trial, and the Austrian Motocross Championships. Leitner moved with his family to the US in 1980 and lived in a motorhome for some time.
Since Horst was an engineer by profession, he decided to turn his chain torque ideas into various products for dirt and street bikes. He designed and created motocross frames for Honda XR350 engines and style kits for Honda-four-stroke engines. His frame kits were so successful that the Puch family, renowned in the motorcycle manufacturing industry, approached him with an idea for a novel motorcycle brand. The Puch family promised to supply Horst everything he needed to build a superbike, and most specifically, a Rotax four-stroke engine.
This endorsement was the motivation Horst needed, and the ATK brand was born. ATK 604/605 and the ATK 560 were a hit, and every ATK 605 owner believed that the four-stroke engine was the future of motorcycles. This was ten years before the creation of the YZ400F. In 1989, owning an ATK 604E (electric start) was a status symbol, as back then, all the motocross world knew was two-stroke engines.
Horst sold 605 thumpers and ATK 560 in their thousands, ranging from $7,000 to $10,000. The thumpers were such a massive success that in the 1984 World Four-Stroke Championships, Team Honda built Honda-powered copies of the ATK. Horst got an offer in 1988 by the Bombardier Corporation and asked to create a sample two-stroke, which was to replace their Can-Am fleet. Horst built the most arbitrary off-road motorcycle ever- the ATK two-stroke. Since Bombardier factory was reluctant to run a motorbike assembly in Canada, the ATK-406 two-stroke was going to be the new face of Can-Am.
Horst retired and sold the company, which included his truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and automotive product line. Today, ATK is still one of the leading manufacturers of motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles in Centerville, USA.
