KTM CEO Stefan Pierer has been elected President of the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM) for the second time, and will take up his new position on July 1, 2017.

The Austrian was previously president of the ACEM in 2004, and will now replace president of BMW Motorrad Stephan Schaller, who will take the position of Vice President. Michele Colaninno, a member of Piaggio’s board of directors will also join Schaller as a Vice President.


Speaking after his election, Pierer said: “Mr. Schaller has done an excellent job at positioning ACEM for the future. I know I speak for the whole European motorcycle community in stating how much this work is appreciated. I look forward to start my term as President and to work for a stronger association that promotes motorcycling across Europe.”

What is the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers?

The ACEM, which is based in Brussels, represents motorcycle, scooter, three-wheeler and quadricycle manufacturers in Europe, and has 14 motorcycle manufacturers as members. The association works closely with EU institutions across various policy issues including L-category vehicles, environmental legislation, road safety and transport policies and international trade negotiations.

They also aim to provide clear and factual information concerning the European motorcycle sector to foster the understanding of the sector’s contribution to society.
