  From the industry-leading 1980s four-stroke ATK motocross and off-road motorcycles that presaged today’s dominant four-stroke machines, to the unique AMP RESEARCH and Mercedes-Benz full-suspension bicycles of the 90s, to today’s pickup trucks and SUV accessories, every AMP Research product has been conceived, engineered and developed by Horst Leitner, the company’s visionary founder and owner. Born in a small town near Salzburg Austria in 1942, Leitner became a top-rank off-road motorcycle racer, competing in the F.I.M. Motocross World Championships in Europe, winning four gold medals in the grueling International Six Days Trial, as well as capturing the Austrian National Motocross Championships. After completing his engineering studies in Graz Austria, Leitner tackled the challenge of improving the suspension function of the motorcycles he raced. His efforts resulted in the A-Trak and AMP-Link chain-torque eliminators, inventions that greatly improved the ride quality, handling and performance of on-and off-road motorcycles and, later, ATVs.
