"From the Penton motorcycles that established the KTM brand in America to the numerous championships that KTM riders have achieved in AMA-sanctioned off-road competition, KTM has made its mark on motorcycling in this country and abroad," said AMA president and CEO Rob Dingman.

The 2011 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by KTM, kicks off the three-day AMA Legends Champions Weekend. The ceremony will officially welcome five legends to the Hall of Fame: motocross promoter Stu Peters, magazine editor Phil Schilling, industry leader Fred Fox, roadracing champion Doug Polen and motorcycling pioneer Norbert Schickel.

In addition to the class of 2011, the induction ceremony will honor the careers of two existing Hall of Fame Legends: world champion icons Roger DeCoster and Kenny Roberts.
