KTM is expanding its presence in youth development programs both nationally and internationally, reported the company.
KTM has decided to adjust its motorsport strategy in road racing for the coming racing season. It’ll continue to place a main focus on its supported program, the Red Bull Rookies Cup, in the context of the MotoGP-World Championship.
KTM also wants to support especially selected racing teams in Germany and Austria (IDM Germany) to make 125ccm racing machines available to young riders.
In keeping with its “Ready to Race” philosophy, KTM will also strengthen its racing activity with the RC8 R, the Superbike flagship of the asphalt model range. KTM, however, is withdrawing from the 125 ccm Grand Prix World Championship.
