As in previous years, entries are open to 6–8-year-olds (age taken on January 1, 2023) with each event taking place alongside events on the FIM Motocross World Championship calendar.  Positively showcasing two-wheeled e-motorsport competition since its inception in 2021, the 2023 series is expected to be the best yet. The exciting championship allows KTM to emphasize its commitment towards electric-powered motorcycles and is the perfect starting point for ambitious young racers to quickly develop their skills by competing on MXGP racetracks.

A timed qualifying session seeds riders onto the start line for each of the two races with the top three overall climbing onto the podium to celebrate their success, just like their MXGP heroes. Starting earlier than previous seasons, the MXGP of Spain on May 7 hosts the opening round with the remaining four events taking place during the early summer months. Familiar venues return aside from round two in France, which visits the superb Villars sous Ecot. Round three takes place at Teutschenthal, Germany before the series then culminates with a two-day event at Loket, the MXGP of Czech Republic, on July 15-16, where the overall champion will be crowned. With registrations reaching full capacity well ahead of the first round in both 2021 and 2022, the parents of ambitious young riders are urged to secure a place on the start line as soon as possible. The only requirement to ensure entry is for riders to be affiliated with their national federation and to commit to a minimum of three events.

Securing victory at the 2023 Dakar Rally with Kevin Benavides, KTM secured its 19th win at the most grueling and iconic of all off-road events. Not only that, KTM secured an incredible one-two finish with the fight for the win literally going down to the final few kilometers of the two-week-long competition. It was Kevin Benavides’ incredible consistency and speed over the 14 stages of racing that paid off, with the Argentinian racer coming from 12 seconds behind on the penultimate day to clinch the win after a blinding display of riding on the very final stage. His Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammate Toby Price, who eventually placed second, can hold his head high, as the two-time Dakar Champion fought right to the finish, ultimately losing out by an agonizing 43 seconds.

The 2023 event will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the toughest ever for a variety of reasons. Riders covered well over 8,000 kilometers in total, and close to 5,000 of them were raced against the clock. If the unforgiving Saudi desert wasn’t tough enough, the heavy rains that fell over the first week of racing threw another challenge into the mix with flooded rivers and muddy lake beds making racing and navigating even tougher. Add that to the two weeks of early mornings and minimal sleep and you end up with not only one of the most physically demanding events in the world, but one of the most mentally draining, too.

The first week of racing at this year’s Dakar went incredibly well for the KTM-mounted desert warriors. Kevin Benavides was lying second overall and was closely followed in third by the young, up-and-coming American Mason Klein. One place behind Mason, Toby Price was less than two minutes behind the leader on what was already shaping up to be one of the tightest Dakars in history. Rounding out the top 10 after stage eight was Matthias Walkner – not the position the Austrian wanted to occupy, but after crashing on day two and injuring his wrist, the fact that he was even able to continue was outstanding.

Going into the second week of racing it was all about the dunes. And while the navigation was perhaps less demanding, the ability to read the terrain became far more important. Mason Klein, who had already topped stage two, unfortunately suffered two crashes on the first day back after the rest day. Although he was able to continue, the injuries he sustained would eventually rule him out of contention. The 21-year-old future star was forced to throw in the towel on day 12. Matthias Walkner was also forced to withdraw one day later when a crash near the start of the special on day 13 resulted in the Austrian being airlifted to hospital. Thankfully Matthias sustained no serious injuries.

At the close of that 13th day, Kevin Benavides, who had topped the timesheets despite stopping to aid the injured Walkner, trailed his teammate Price by just 12 seconds. The Dakar was going to come down to a 138-kilometer sprint on the final day. With the start order reversed for stage 14, Benavides set off second to last, with Price just three minutes behind. The two KTM 450 RALLY riders both gave everything they had over that final special, but there would be just one winner – Kevin Benavides.

With navigation proving critical on the final day of competition, by missing a couple of waypoints and being forced to turn back, Toby Price finished the stage 55 seconds down on Benavides. The final result gave Benavides victory and an incredible 19th Dakar win for KTM. With Price rounding out the top two overall, it was an incredible fortnight of racing for the whole Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team.

Kevin Benavides:   “It’s been an amazing day! I just focused on every kilometer from the first to the last. I didn’t think about the position or the result I just gave my 100 percent over the whole stage and tried to enjoy the day. The final special was really fast and tricky, and so muddy – thankfully I didn’t make any big mistakes, but it would have been easy to have an issue out there. I have worked so hard for this. This year’s rally has been one of the closest ever and there wasn’t a single day where you could afford to ease off. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my team, and all my family and friends. It’s going to take a little while to sink in, I can’t describe this feeling right now.”

Toby Price:   “So, so close. Yeah, a great job from Kevin, he did really well. I knew it was going to be tight, and of course I pushed right from the start all through the stage. I just missed three waypoints by virtually meters, and it dropped me back. Obviously, the goal is to win, and it’s frustrating to miss out by such a narrow margin. But I’m fit, healthy, and I’m going home with a trophy, so that’s the most important thing. I’m ready for another one next year.”

Norbert Stadlbauer – Rally Team Manager:   “It's been an incredible Dakar – one of the toughest in history and definitely the closest! It’s been such a close battle inside the Red Bull KTM team with Toby and Kevin separated by just 12 seconds going into the final day today. Thankfully, the performances of both riders gave KTM a one-two in the race, with Kevin earning his second win and the 19th for KTM. Of course, you can’t have two winners, but Toby claiming second place is still an incredible achievement and down to the hard work he has put in over the two weeks. The team have also done an amazing job, not just at the event, but also over the whole of the past year building up to this race. Now it’s time to celebrate before we look ahead to the next race in the season.”

Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director:   “Beside the riders, I’m maybe the happiest man on the planet right now. It’s amazing after this long journey and this tough race, to have only 12 seconds separating the two guys coming into this final day. And then for them to push so hard over the stage and reach the finish line safely and in first and second is incredible. After around 5,000 kilometers and over 40 hours of racing, to have them so close is unheard of, and the whole team did an amazing job to get them here in this position. What it came down to was basically a motocross race for 130 kilometers. Both riders did an amazing job, and even though you can only have one winner, I’m hugely proud of them both, as the pressure was really on today. KTM now have 19 wins at the toughest offroad race in the world, but we won't stop there. We're already looking forward to this season and then the 2024 Dakar next year.”

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Manuel Lettenbichler has won the 2022 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Claiming a dominant victory at the eighth and final round of the series - Hixpania Hard Enduro - the young German secured the title in style on his KTM 300 EXC. FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Trystan Hart narrowly missed the podium in fourth. In what turned out to be a thrilling climax to the FIM Hard Enduro season, Hixpania Hard Enduro delivered three days of action-packed racing in Spain. The opening prologue held in the heart of Aguilar de Campoo’s medieval town square saw Manuel Lettenbichler get his title attack off to a strong start by completing the endurocross-style race as runner-up.

Saturday’s Campoo Xtreme challenged riders with a tough extreme cross-country style race held around the town’s reservoir. Taking an early lead, Manuel Lettenbichler was unstoppable over the difficult terrain and had opened up a 10-minute advantage by the checkered flag. However, with Mani and several of the top-10 finishers receiving speed penalties, the final results saw the win go to FMF KTM’s Trystan Hart with Mani dropping down to second. Despite the minor setback, Lettenbichler had done enough to secure himself pole position for Sunday’s ‘Lost Roads’ finale.

With the final race starting in the infamous cave section, it was Mani who emerged first and set off into the course. Riding at a fast but calculated pace, the 24-year-old opened up a comfortable gap at the head of the field. Despite increasing pressure from behind, Lettenbichler was able to manage his speed over the rocky terrain and maintain his lead to the finish. On reaching the checkered flag, Lettenbichler secured his fifth overall victory of the season and with it, the FIM Hard Enduro crown.

The result caps an incredible year for Mani who missed the first round of the championship completely due to recovering from injury. But taking the win at round two – Xross Hard Enduro – he then went on to claim victory at Red Bull Erzbergrodeo, Red Bull Abestone, and Red Bull Outliers in Canada. The title complements Lettenbichler’s win in the 2019 WESS Championship, but marks his first FIM World Championship title. An impressive achievement for the Red Bull KTM star.

Manuel Lettenbichler:  “I can’t believe it – this feels so good! The pressure was definitely on this morning, I was so nervous before the start. When they changed the track a little bit, I think that occupied my mind a little and I was able to focus. I got a great start and was leading and managed to make a bit of a gap, but then after about an hour I was already starting to get tired and there was still a long way to go. Everyone was riding so well, but I knew it was Mario behind me and he kept the pressure on right to the finish. I’m so happy to get the job done, and it’s even better to do it with a win here in Spain, especially in front of this sick crowd. They’ve given so much support to everyone the whole weekend, it’s been amazing.”

Coming into the final round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Trystan Hart was aiming for a similar performance to the one that secured him a runner-up result at Red Bull Outliers at home in Canada. Starting off the weekend well with a fifth-place finish in the opening prologue, Hart went on to win the Campoo Xtreme on Saturday, and in doing so, qualified second for Sunday’s main race.

A strong start saw the young Canadian slot in behind teammate Lettenbichler on lap one, but with fatigue playing a big part in his performance, Hart began to lose time on the leader. Struggling to find a good rhythm over the intense terrain, Trystan maintained a safe but solid pace to the finish, where he ultimately claimed fourth. A strong result, but not quite what the up-and-coming hard enduro star was hoping for.

Trystan Hart:  “That was one frustrating race. In America I can ride at my best but when I come to Europe I’m just not on the same level. I really need to figure that out as I was making mistakes today that I just shouldn’t be making. Riding like that made me use up a lot of energy and then it becomes way harder. It’s something I really need to work on for the future but overall, it’s been a good season and a huge learning experience for me.”

Fabio Farioli – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Enduro Team Manager:  “This title is down to the all the hard work Mani has put in this year. After missing the first round due to injury, he came back and still won five of the seven rounds he contested. They included his incredible debut win at Red Bull Erzbergrodeo, as well as coming out on top in Canada, where he was pushed all the way by Trystan (Hart). It wasn’t an easy year at all, the results were great, but Mani had to deal with several issues that weren’t resolved until just before the races here in Spain. But despite the pressure he was under, Mani came through to win this final race and claim the title. It’s been a fantastic year for Mani and the whole team are really proud of him and what he’s achieved.”

Tom Vialle’s stunning victory at the Grand Prix of Turkey and the 18th and final round of the 2022 FIM MXGP World Championship allowed KTM to celebrate its fourteenth MX2 title since the inception of the class in 2004. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing star’s achievement also marked the first FIM ‘gold medal’ with the new generation of KTM SX machinery, launched this summer. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing entered the 2022 season faced with obstacles and a hefty challenge. The all-conquering motocross team had won a world championship every year since 2010 bar one but the tragic loss of their upcoming talent Rene Hofer and a lengthy foot injury for Jeffrey Herlings meant that Vialle, who was recovering from his own injury recovery in the winter, was the sole representative. The team were also facing the shortest off-season in the sport’s history and the knowledge that they were developing the brand-new 2023 KTM 250 SX-F for the harshest demands of elite racing.

The motorcycle helped Vialle fly out of the traps
Last weekend’s Grand Prix of Turkey finale saw the 21-year-old needing to beat principal rival Jago Geerts (which he managed with 1-1 scores in the motos after bearing incredible pressure) with just two points splitting the pair. The Frenchman had been vying hard with the Belgian all season – from March to September - and across diverse circuits, terrain and climates. Vialle totaled an impressive 10 victories from 18 Grands Prix. He won 17 of 36 motos and appeared on the podium 15 times. #28 also won the Fox Holeshot award for the year and led double the laps compared to Geerts’ tally. It was his most prolific campaign and brought his second title in just four years in the class; becoming the fourth rider to earn more than one championship with the KTM 250 SX-F since 2004.

Vialle will move to the US to contest the 2023 AMA 250SX and 250MX championships next year but his accumulation of two world crowns and 24 wins since coming into the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team as a rookie in 2019 is testament to his work ethic, his union with Joel Smets, Dirk Gruebel, Harry Norton and the rest of the team staff and the enduring competitiveness of the KTM 250 SX-F.

For 2023 KTM re-worked the chassis and dynamism of the KTM SX line with a completely new range. The ‘anti-squat’ handling concept created the company’s most agile and stable motocrosser to-date that also boasted a number of other innovative features including refined ergonomics and an even stronger single cylinder four-stroke powerplant.

Vialle’s journey with the KTM 250 SX-F will now continue in the American stadiums and outdoor tracks for both supercross and motocross. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will look to groom the next talent in the Grand Prix pipeline for 2023 with 18-year-old recruits Andrea Adamo and Liam Everts filling the new MX2 roster.

Tom Vialle, 1st and 1st for 1st overall in MX2 & the 2022 FIM World Championship title:   “I’m so happy. To finish the season like this is so nice. This is my final race in MX2 so it was special. I wanted to enjoy the last few races and with the team, who have given me such a strong home for four seasons. To have the title for the second time is amazing. The first one was crazy but also this one because it was so tight. I had to come here and go 1-1 but that wasn’t so easy.”

Joel Smets, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager:   “What a day, what a year, what a championship. I don’t think I have ever felt stress like that in any season, even in my own racing career. We’ve been in close situations before but we knew it would all go down to some very tight action today and Tom was able to deliver. I’m so grateful to everybody behind us and I like to think that somewhere and somehow Rene was looking down and enjoying that one.”

Dirk Gruebel, Red Bull KTM Team Technical Co-ordinator:   “Unbelievable today and it is unreal what Tom managed. The mindset was there in qualification but what a difficult situation. Even though Jago did not give up it seemed like Tom just wanted it a bit more. A real drama today but we walked away as the winners and I’m happy for Tom and the whole team after a difficult season. We were always chasing so to take the title is something special.”

Robert Jonas, Head of Motorsports Offroad:   “We faced logistic and sporting obstacles for 2022 and the shortest off-season we can remember and to finish the championship in this way – with another title for our superb team and the talent of Tom Vialle – is the best payback. All the credit must go to the entire Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team who never gave up and kept pushing and working and developing and with one goal in mind. A brilliant effort and it is something the whole factory can be proud of.”

Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director:   “I’m extremely happy right now because it has been a challenging season for us in MXGP and how we went into 2022 was especially tough. Tom had to peg back a big points gap and to be able to take it to the last race on the last day and then win is an incredible achievement. I want to thank the whole team and everybody in the factory who has built this fantastic motorcycle and of course to Tom who has done an outstanding job. He is a real-world champion and I feel he is ready to go to the USA. It was a masterpiece to deliver those two wins today under such big pressure. Not many people can do that.”

Led home by series winner Timoteï Cez, the top six overall finishers in this year’s European Junior e-Motocross Series all achieved their successes aboard the state-of-the-art KTM SX-E 5 minicycle! With Cez winning three of the five rounds, further victories went to Cameron Berry and Austin Edwards, making it a stellar 2022 series for the all-conquering SX-E 5. The 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series was dominated by riders competing on the KTM SX-E 5 as the all-electric machine showed off its Ready to Race credentials in no uncertain terms. With many competitors using the highly capable bike to their advantage, the overall podium at each event bar one saw KTM take a clean sweep of the rostrum. The SX-E 5 was the bike of choice for talented young racers with aspirations of reaching MXGP. Touring Europe during the summer months, the 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series was contested over five events alongside the MXGP World Championship. Up until the final two rounds, the action took place on a shortened race track before the season-ending, double-header event in Loket, Czech Republic saw riders take on a full length MXGP circuit for the very first time. The longer, hardpack track suited the series winner Timoteï and his SX-E 5. On Saturday, a flawless display of riding saw the young KTM star take victory in both races and retake the series lead ahead of the fifth and final round held on Sunday. Needing just 22 points to secure the title at round five, an opening moto fifth was followed by his sixth race win of the season in moto two, placing him second overall on the day and with it ensuring he lifted the series winner’s trophy. Later this year in September, the youngster will get to enjoy his exclusive prize - an all-expenses paid trip to watch the FIM Motocross of Nations in the USA for himself and a guest!

After only missing the overall podium once throughout the season while winning six of the 10 races he contested, the young Frenchman is a worthy winner of the 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series.

All riders who competed on the KTM SX-E 5 minicycle received a selection of exciting products from the KTM PowerWear range. Designed with the same winning intent as all KTM motocross models, the pit wear, merchandise, and accessories provided ensured all young riders enjoyed a professional appearance when away from the racetrack. Furthermore, those who competed in the full five-round series on the SX-E 5 will now be invited to join an end-of-season training camp together with representatives from Red Bull KTM Factory Racing.

Season highlights are available to stream for free on with a simple sign-up required to access all of this year’s exciting racing action.

Federico Valentini – Vice President Global Motorcycle Marketing:   “For KTM, the 2022 European Junior e-Motocross Series has been a huge success. Not only was the series winner, Timoteï Cez, riding a KTM SX-E 5, but every round saw a KTM victory, and in the final standings, seven of the top-10 riders rode an SX-E 5. Even outside of this success, this bike was by far the most popular model in the series which shows that our commitment to e-mobility, and developing this bike in particular, has been recognised by Europe’s best young racers. This year we have witnessed some great racing but more importantly, the level of interest in the series has really grown throughout this season. The final two rounds saw a full line-up of 40 riders for the first time ever and it was broadcast live on MXGP-TV too, another first for the series. Congratulations once again to Timoteï and all riders, and their families, who chose to race the KTM SX-E 5.”

    In an extended weekend packed with action at the infamous Iron Giant in Austria, KTM enjoyed a vast amount of success at the 2022 edition of the iconic Red Bull Erzbergrodeo.

    Ensuring a truly memorable return to the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo for KTM, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Manuel Lettenbichler claimed an emphatic victory at the 26th edition of the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo aboard his KTM 300 EXC.

    After hitting the front of the race soon after the start, the young German maintained his lead right through to the checkered flag, securing his first ever win at the iconic Austrian event. In addition, Manuel’s victory marked his second consecutive FIM Hard Enduro World Championship race win of 2022 following victory in Serbia last month, his first international outing of the year after a lengthy lay-off following knee surgery.

    First competing at the Erzbergrodeo back in 2014 when he became the event’s youngest finisher, in 2022 Mani not only topped the podium, but thanks to his father’s victory back in 2015, he also became the first and only rider to have shared race-winning success with his father. With Mani winning on the all-conquering KTM 300 EXC this year, it marked KTM’s 19th Red Bull Erzbergrodeo victory, the first coming thanks to the efforts of KTM-mounted South African Alfie Cox in 1995.

    The iconic Iron Giant also served as the backdrop for the international launch of the new KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO special edition, which, in the highly capable hands of eight-time AMA GNCC Champion Kailub Russell, topped the time sheets of the qualifying Iron Road Prologue. Visiting the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo for the first time ever, Kailub gave the KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO an unforgettable debut outing, ahead of Mani’s history making main event win!

    A ‘wet’ Sachsenring circuit in Germany and a dry, fast Mugello in Italy were the venues for the first two rounds of the 2022 MotoGP eSports championship as the sixth edition of the exciting series pulsed through controllers of the twelve principal racers. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing representative ‘JackHammer4658’ posted 3rd and 5th place finishes respectively as the contest began with a live stage production at Mugello, scene of the eighth round of the real MotoGP. Stuffy early evening temperatures did not break the focus of the Englishman who used expert skill on his digital KTM RC16 to race to the podium at the ‘soaking’ Sachsenring. The 10-lap sprint around MotoGP’s shortest track was made with the latest version of Milestone Entertainment’s impressive and gorgeously visual ‘MotoGP 2022’ video game. JackHammer and DarkBright (Tech3 KTM Factory Racing’s ‘rider’) joined the other ten gamers who were wearing the colors of their allied real life MotoGP team. Red Bull KTM made the podium at Sachsenring which was then followed by 8-laps of Mugello for the second dash of the championship. Around the Italian course JackHammer4658 battled hard but was unable to enter the top four. Like the real-life show, the riders were separated by only fractions of a second and the braking, line choice and acceleration points were key to a strong rhythm. “Coming into the race I knew I had a chance of the podium, there were a lot of people making mistakes in practice and I knew if I kept the bike up I would be able to go for that top three,” JackHammer4658 (real name ‘Jack Hammersley’) said. “I kept calm and wasn’t riding the best but it was a good result to start the championship. Mugello was tighter. I pushed to pass Andrea [AndreaSaveri11] but my only opportunity was into Turn 4 and that was my weakest place on the track: I didn’t have the confidence to do it on the brakes. Anyway, two top fives and 5th in the championship so I’m happy.” DarkBright rode to 9th and 10th. 2022 MotoGP eSports was broadcast live on MotoGP channels, especially YouTube and Facebook where highlights of the intense and lifelike chase can be re-watched. Rounds three and four will be held remotely and around Le Mans and TT Circuit Assen on July 1st.

    Get ready to re-think what you feel-and-know about offroad motorcycles: the 2023 KTM SX launch will take place online on May 10th at 17.00 GMT+1. The next level of motocross riding, racing and performance has been years in the making and now its within grasp. This is an event and explanation you won’t want to miss. KTM have dominated the motocross and supercross landscape since the introduction of the last generation of KTM SX-F machinery in 2015 but with a fresh approach and a new concept there has been a reinvention. To see and learn more on the afternoon of Tuesday May 10th it’s super easy. Simply hit this LINK. Now you’re on the list and one of the first privileged few. The latest editions of the KTM SXs are a big deal. We’ve not only developed a sumptuous new outline for the chassis and the way motocross bumps, jumps and ruts can be tackled but we’ve also got juicy engine upgrades and some special news with the 2-stroke KTM SXs. Why is this significant upgrade of the KTM SXs exciting us all in Austria? Well, it comes from the sheer rate of peerless sporting achievement in the past decade and more. A rider like MXGP World Champion Jeffrey Herlings has depended on KTM SXs for his development as junior and SX-Fs for a glittering array of MXGP success, taking 99 GP wins and 131 podiums in 12 years and has made 51 MXGP rostrum appearances in only half a decade. Or what about Tony Cairoli? Seven world titles with the KTM 350 and 450 SX-Fs. The Italian and Dutchman are just two Grand Prix stars that have given the KTM 450 SX-F 126 overall wins in the premier class since 2004. It was in ‘04 that the current definitions of the FIM World Championship categories was formed and in both MX2/MXGP KTM have racked-up over 600 moto checkered flags and well over 300 Grand Prix victories. In AMA SX the KTM 450 SX-F has won five of the last seven 450SX titles thanks to the wins, podiums and consistency of Ryan Dungey and Cooper Webb in the stadiums of North America. So, make an appointment and get ready to get ahead.

Interested parents of riders on KTM SX-E 5 minicycles are encouraged to register quickly to avoid disappointment as the second running of this ground-breaking series looks set to be a sell-out. Proving to be incredibly popular in 2021, the European Junior e-Motocross Series returns for a second term in 2022 and is open to all KTM SX-E 5 riders aged 6–8 years old (age taken on January 1, 2022).

    The MXGP of Spain on May 28 and 29 hosts the opening round with the remaining four events taking place in June and July. In what will be a truly international series, round two takes place in Ernée, France, round three is in Teutschenthal, Germany, before a two-day event at the MXGP of Czech Republic on July 16-17 brings the series to a close.

    Federico Valentini – KTM Head of Global Marketing:   “It’s really exciting that the European Junior e-Motocross Series is returning in 2022 following the success of last year. It proved to be hugely popular and the feedback we have received has been incredibly positive. This year we will see the same racing format, which worked perfectly in 2021 and gives all the riders a very rare opportunity to race on the same tracks as their MXGP heroes. The series really shows that KTM is 100% committed to both racing and our e-mobility research and development, with many of the racers last year choosing the KTM SX-E 5 as their bike of choice.

    2021 has been a memorable campaign for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing across the disciplines. Spirited presence in at least six different spheres of motorcycle competition has delivered notable success as well as the full range of emotions. Among the elation and the adversity on track and off, KTM were able to embellish stories and welcome new silverware with a total of 327 FIM world titles now in their canon.
    • MXGP and AMA 450SX titles celebrated as Red Bull KTM run wild with the KTM 450 SX-F
    • Two more MotoGP™ Grand Prix wins & domination for the KTM GP Academy in Moto3™ & Moto2™
    • E2 Enduro & Cross-Country Rallies FIM championships sealed, ISDE victory & Dakar podium finish
    2021 sprung back to speed after a logistically challenging 2020 with plenty of pace and prizes. The sand of Saudi Arabia hosted the  43rd Dakar Rally  in January and Sam Sunderland was able to take his KTM 450 RALLY to the third step of the overall podium. Meanwhile the 2021  AMA Supercross Championship  had begun in the United States and Cooper Webb regained the championship he won in 2019 with a strong and consistent battle against tough opposition. Webb guided the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the company’s fifth title in seven years. KTM North America’s impressive racing program also welcomed a high profile return to the AMA American Flat Track series.

    Back in Europe Red Bull KTM Factory Racing soon weaved their strong influence on the  FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship . Jeffrey Herlings won a stunning contest that traversed 18 rounds and 36 motos to go down to the very last laps of the season. The Dutchman’s second MXGP crown also represented KTM’s third in the last half a decade with the KTM 450 SX-F. Red Bull KTM were the only Grand Prix team to see all six of their riders – Herlings, Tony Cairoli and Jorge Prado in the MXGP class and Tom Vialle, Mattia Guadagnini and Rene Hofer with the KTM 250 SX-F in MX2 – stand on the top of a Grand Prix rostrum during the year. Prado and Vialle dominated the competition in terms of holeshots and KTM gave motocross icon Cairoli a deserving send-off as the nine-time world champion ended an 18-year career at Mantova, Italy in November. Cairoli, Guadagnini, Herlings and Hofer all excelled with podium presence at the 2021 Motocross of Nations in Italy as the home country triumphed and Hofer owned the MX2 category.

    KTM were able to extend their presence through the  EMX European Championship  development period with their SX technology and laid a promising new base thanks to the European Junior e-Motocross series; an educational scheme for youngsters taking place on sections of Grand Prix circuits and at MXGP fixtures with KTM SX-E 5. The inaugural edition was extremely popular and whet the appetite of families across Europe.

    KTM came back to force in the  FIM Enduro World Championship  in 2021, where Red Bull KTM’s Josep Garcia grasped his second E2 championship (and first title with the KTM 350 EXC-F) and was runner-up in EnduroGP, as well as the outright winner at the prestigious International Six Days Enduro. Teammate Manuel Lettenbichler claimed victory at the daunting Red Bull Romaniacs for the third year in a row aboard the KTM 300 EXC TPI and only narrowly lost out on the FIM Hard Enduro crown at the last round having finished on the podium at every race of the series. Also on the dirt, Matthias Walkner earned the distinction of  FIM Cross-Country Ralllies World Champion  and KTM continued to reign in the WORCS series in the U.S.

    KTM’s reach and influence offroad remains elite and 2021 was another illustration of the power of the organization, the equipment and the athletes but it was also a year in which the road racing arm of the department continued to blossom.

    2021 was KTM’s fifth year on the  MotoGP  grid and the third with a full four-rider line-up thanks to both the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing teams. Two wins, five podiums and a joint top-speed record were bagged once the season began in Qatar and ended in Valencia.

    Brad Binder increased his tally of triumphs to two in two terms with his brave decision to remain on dry, slick tyres for the final laps of a wet Motorrad Grand prix von Österreich at the Red Bull Ring. The South African classified 6th in the final championship standings with the RC16 after being 11th during 2020 in his rookie outing. He also blasted to 362.4km/h at Mugello, Italy to equal the fastest speed recorded in the history of the sport. Miguel Oliveira now has three Grand Prix wins with KTM after running to the checkered flag in Catalunya during the summer. The thrilling feat came in a spell of three podium appearances for the talented Portuguese. The Red Bull KTM Ajo team were rampant in both  Moto3 and Moto2  as the KTM GP Academy witnessed Grand Prix spoils for four different riders and the fifth Moto3 world championship since 2012 with star rookie Pedro Acosta blitzing the field. Remy Gardner became the first Australian Moto2 World Champion after a close duel with teammate Raul Fernandez as both Ajo racers finished 1st-2nd seven times from 18 rounds and set new milestones in the division through 13 wins. The Red Bull KTM Tech3 team also flourished in Moto3 with both Deniz Öncü and Ayumu Sasaki collecting trophies on the KTM RC4.

    The KTM RC 250 R was the platform for the latest edition of the  Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup , that won by Spaniard David Alonso. The Northern Talent Cup (ruled by Jakub Gurecky) and the Austrian Junior Cup (Leo Rammerstorfer was the #1) both used RC4R motorcycle and this meant at select rounds of 2021 MotoGP there were more than 70 KTM race bikes circulating Grand Prix tracks on a single weekend.

    While 2021 has been a resounding success on many levels, KTM have also had to endure some difficult and emotional moments and thoughts of the late Jason Dupasquier and Rene Hofer and their respective families will remain at the forefront long after another racing year begins.

    Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director : “ To take this company to the track around the world means a big movement of so many pieces and the big key to the success comes from the people involved. From the brilliant riders - at the beginning, middle and end of their careers - to the guys at the factory, those in the pitlanes and the paddocks and the trucks, the whole operation needs a special focus to make it all work. When we can see the results of our job then this makes me very proud. We’ve celebrated this season but we’ve also had cause for tears and, at times, it has been very emotional. I just want to take this moment to thank everyone who has played their part and, as ever, we will look forward and give our best to be right at the front again when another racing year starts. ”

    A solid four-rider Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team is set to enter the 2022 AMA Supercross Championship aboard the radically new KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION and KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION models.

    The Red Bull KTM Ajo team celebrates success again in 2021 as Remy Gardner clinched the Moto2™ World Championship at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana season finale in Spain. The 23-year-old Australian took an impressive 12 podiums including five victories from 18 rounds on his way to his title victory, with teammate Raul Fernandez making it a Red Bull KTM Ajo 1-2 with runner-up in the series. With the Red Bull KTM Ajo duo heading into the final races of the season battling for the championship lead, it was a tense closure to 2021 for the team. Gardner, who also enjoyed three pole positions this year, did what he needed to at the final round in Valencia with a 10th place finish to secure a four-point advantage over his teammate to be crowned the 2021 Moto2 World Champion. 21-year-old Spanish racer Fernandez, who enjoyed 12 podiums this season including eight victories, won the season finale for second in the series, taking Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Moto2 win tally to 13 from 18 races this season and with it the Teams title in the Moto2 category. The 1-2 finish in the Moto2 championship, in addition to Pedro Acosta’s Moto3™ World Championship title that the Red Bull KTM Ajo team celebrated just over one week ago, is testament to the success of the KTM GP Academy, which identifies and develops young talent through the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Moto3, and Moto2 on the pathway to MotoGP™. Gardner, who is the first Australian Moto2 champion and the first from his country to lift a title since 2011, is looking forward to the next step in his career with his move to the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing MotoGP team in 2022. Fernandez, who was a Moto2 rookie this season, having progressed from the Moto3 ranks with the Red Bull KTM Ajo team, will join Gardner in an exciting line-up for the Tech3 KTM squad next season. Remy Gardner: “I’m lost for words. After so many years of suffering and so many points in my career where I thought ‘I’m not good enough, I’m not gonna make it’ we did it. This is a dream come true and I want to thank everyone who believed in me when others didn’t. I still cannot believe this has happened. I’m so grateful to be here.” Raul Fernandez: “I’m really happy with my race and I did what I could to try and win the championship. It wasn’t lost here but in other races. Anyway, it has been a fantastic season thanks to an incredible team behind me. We won eight races and set a record for my first year in Moto2. I have a strange feeling now: I won today, but not the championship, but I’m still very happy.” Aki Ajo : “In both categories this season it has been incredible. On the other hand, I have to remind myself that this is part of the work: the result of that is the improvements we can see, and we can still make. It is always a pleasure to go through that process. It’s an emotional moment. Remy did it today and Raul had a great race; like for every rider, we just tried to help them take out the maximum of their potential. It’s important to draw out the best of everything around you in racing while also keeping it simple.” Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “It’s a great moment. Winning the title in Moto3 and then watching these boys in Moto2 - and knowing they are moving up to MotoGP - I feel like our foundation for the future is set. This year has been another milestone. It’s crazy what they did this season and we’re looking forward to 2022 already.”

    Herlings takes KTM’s eighth MXGP title at final round thriller

    Jeffrey Herlings has delivered Red Bull KTM Factory Racing their eighth premier class FIM Motocross World Championship since 2010, and third with the KTM 450 SX-F, with a tense 1-1 victory at the 2021 season-closing Grand Prix Citta di Mantova in Italy. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing are MXGP World Champions for the third time since 2017 thanks to Jeffrey Herlings’ stellar 2021 season. The #84, who has been a KTM racer his whole career and emerged onto the Grand Prix scene as a 15-year-old in 2010, has increased his stats with a resolutely fast and strong performance this term in what has been a close and memorable campaign for MXGP. Entering the final two rounds and the ‘double-header’ at Mantova, Herlings was one of three riders separated by only three points in the MXGP standings. The Citta di Mantova climax across the Mantova sand and under cloudy skies meant Herlings had to combat both Romain Febvre (who he trailed by three points coming into the last motos) and Tim Gajser. Herlings withstood the pressure aboard his KTM 450 SX-F and went 1-1 in the two outings in Italy to re-enter his name in the record books with his fifth Motocross World Championship title and second in the MXGP division. He also claimed 14 podiums including nine Grand Prix wins and 13 pole positions from the 17 rounds he contested in 2021, which means he stands only two overall victories away from the all-time record of 101 and with another two years ahead as a Red Bull KTM Factory Racing athlete. With the performances from Herlings, Tony Cairoli, and Jorge Prado in the MXGP class this season KTM also won the 2021 Manufacturers’ Championship. Jeffrey Herlings : “I’m super-happy but at the same time I feel bad for the other two guys. I want to thank both of them for a great championship. The bad thing about our sport is that only one can win but they have been great, and I have such respect for both of them. To go 1-1 today was special. I haven’t slept for a week thinking about what could happen, what might happen and this-and-that. This wasn’t an easy championship. All three of us kept charging until the last moto, especially me and Romain in these last two races, and the pressure was on. I didn’t break and I made the championship happen. It was the most difficult one ever, so many ups-and-downs, and I’ve needed nerves of steel these last weeks, but we made it.” Dirk Gruebel, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager : “What a tough season! We went from leading to nowhere because Jeffrey got hurt and then was out of the competition. He came back early, and I think that race he made at Lommel was the difference. He rode through the pain and put us back on track. His pain threshold and his desire is crazy. Other guys would have probably stayed away and healed-up, but he wanted to stay in the game. Now he’s world champion. Today was ‘horrible’ for the whole team! We were tied after the first moto, and it went down to the last race and the best man would win. It looked like Jeffrey wanted it more again. Big credit to him for the first-class job and to all the team for pushing all the way.” Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director : “This was not a normal season. It was a difficult and special title to win. The competition was incredible so big compliments to them: Tim and Romain produced an incredible year and any one of the guys would have deserved a title, but we also worked really hard for this. Jeffrey was amazing. He had ups-and-downs but was always fighting and coming back for more. It is always an emotional ride with him but, in the end, I feel that he deserved this title the most. I have to thank the whole team because they have made so much effort, but in our motocross ‘world’ the rider is the superstar, and we have great ones in our team. Tony, Jorge, Mattia, Rene, and Tom: the relationship we have is also amazing and makes our work so much fun. We will go home tomorrow to work hard and continue to be strong next year.”

    The KTM Factory Racing rally team will welcome a high-profile ‘rookie’ during the coming weeks with MotoGP™ star and Grand Prix winner Danilo Petrucci set to swap his KTM RC16 for a KTM 450 RALLY in an attempt to take on the famous and notoriously difficult Dakar Rally in January. The speed is still high, the adrenaline still pumping - even protection like airbags remain in place - but the 31-year-old Italian will be exchanging a visor for goggles, and knee sliders for knee braces when he converts to a rally bike in Tech3 KTM Factory Racing colors for 2022. Petrucci, who has accumulated 10 podium finishes and two wins in his 10 seasons on the MotoGP grid, will fulfil a lifetime dream with the transition into the next stage of his elite racing career after the season-closing Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana. ‘Petrux’ is a skilled offroad rider in enduro and motocross but knows the discipline and demands of rally will be a big challenge. Learning from some of the most successful racers in the sport, and experts from the KTM squad that has previously won an outstanding 18 successive Dakar victories, Danilo has begun his rally preparation as he embarks on the challenge of a switch from MotoGP to the Dakar. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s 2018 Dakar winner and recently crowned FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion Matthias Walkner, two-time Dakar champion Toby Price, and reigning Dakar champion Kevin Benavides will be on-hand in the KTM stable to help the MotoGP star make his transition to the sport. Danilo has had a taste of desert conditions aboard his KTM 450 RALLY and the incredibly challenging navigation required for rally racing at a recent test under the watchful eye of KTM’s Rally Sport Manager, Jordi Viladoms - a former successful Dakar competitor. Following the MotoGP season, Danilo’s attention will be fully focused on furthering his riding and navigational education ahead of his first attempt at the 14-day and approximately 8,000-kilometer event, which begins on January 1st. The 2022 edition of the competition will take place in the Middle East for the third year in a row and will allow Petrucci to be thrown into the depths of Dakar to learn and develop with an eye on 2022 FIM competition and a potential future in the sport. Danilo Petrucci : “For me it is really a dream come true to race the Dakar. It’s an event I’ve always wanted to do since I was a child when I was watching video tapes of the Dakar Rally from the 80s and 90s. Now, thanks to KTM, this dream is coming true. First, I would like to thank KTM for this great opportunity; I think I will be the only rider that in just over one month has competed in MotoGP and then the Dakar Rally – so it is with great pride that I go there. My main target is just to finish the race and enjoy it. The first approach was to have some road book training with Jordi, he competed in the race many times and finished on the podium, so he has been great in helping me learn this special art. I had my first taste of riding the KTM 450 RALLY recently at an initial test in the Dubai dunes, where I was with KTM’s Dakar champions and I was able to learn so much from them – it was great to see them riding, and they were super nice and helpful to me. I hope the training for the next month will be enough; for sure it will be a tough race, but I am excited.” Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director : “Danilo’s talent and his character means he is one of the few elite level guys that we believe can make this radical move from the asphalt to the dunes. It’s a great story for a great guy. We want to thank him for his professionalism and all his efforts as part of the Tech3 team in our MotoGP project and now it’s time for another ‘world’!”

    KTM has clinched its fifth Moto3™ World Championship title with Red Bull KTM Ajo’s rookie sensation Pedro Acosta, who stormed to victory at the Grande Prémio Brembo Do Algarve circuit for the penultimate round of the season in Portimão, Portugal. Spanish star Acosta has enjoyed an incredible eight podium finishes including six wins onboard the KTM RC4 to take his first Grand Prix title. Heading into round 17, the young rookie had a 21-point advantage at the head of the standings. The stakes were high in the ultra-competitive Moto3 category, and after qualifying in 14th position, Acosta knew he needed a strong finish with five points over his title rival to confirm the championship one week ahead of the season finale. In true Ready To Race style, Acosta did not disappoint. In a race full of position changes and battles from start to flag, Acosta rose to the challenge. Having lost the lead mid-race, the young rookie remained consistent and worked his way back to the front of the field with three laps remaining. Acosta held strong over the battle that ensued behind, crossing the line to clinch another sensational Grand Prix victory onboard his KTM RC4 and with it the 2021 Moto3 World Championship title – KTM’s second consecutive win in the category. In what has been an incredibly successful season, Red Bull KTM Ajo also won the Moto3 Team Championship, and KTM is another step closer to winning the Moto3 Constructors’ Championship at the final round in Valencia, Spain next weekend. Seventeen-year-old Acosta made an instant and lasting impact on Moto3 in his first attempt. The Spanish star finished second on his debut in Qatar and sensationally won his second outing at the Losail International Circuit despite starting from pitlane, before going on to clinch the 2021 crown. Conquering the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2020, and now having claimed the Moto3 World Championship with Red Bull KTM Ajo, Acosta will be moving up with the team as part of the KTM GP Academy program to the Moto2 World Championship class in 2022. Pedro Acosta: “I feel like I have nothing to say at the moment! I did the warm-down lap crying. I can only say thanks to the team, Aki, KTM and Red Bull. They gave me a family this year. Thanks to all the guys that send me messages every day. To all the people pushing me: this championship is for them.” Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “It was clear to us that we had signed a very special rider for the Moto3 World Championship in Pedro Acosta. But the fact that he delivered such a strong rookie season in this tough class under Aki Ajo's leadership has exceeded all expectations. This is an important success for our youth work in the KTM GP Academy and for KTM in general. We are more than proud of the team´s achievement and we look forward to many more to come.“

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Josep Garcia has been crowned FIM Enduro2 World Champion, having won the opening day’s proceedings at the final round in Langeac, France on Saturday. Garcia also claimed the runner-up position in the EnduroGP category, concluding a successful enduro season in which he also won the prestigious International Six Days of Enduro overall. With a three-year absence from the Enduro World Championship, Garcia was eager to reclaim the title he previously won in 2017. The 24-year-old Spaniard put together a strong campaign aboard his KTM 350 EXC-F with seven E2 victories from six rounds and 12 days of competition. Coming into the final event, Garcia had a healthy 22-point lead in E2 and knew he could secure the title with a strong result on day one, although with the EnduroGP championship still a possibility, the KTM racer gave his all.

    Garcia put in a superb ride to take the FIM Enduro2 World Championship title with a victory on Saturday and one day to spare – he would back up this title-winning performance with another victory in E2 for the final day’s proceedings. The Spanish racer was first on Saturday in EnduroGP to take the championship to the wire; with a strong comeback following a fall on day two, the KTM racer finished third, which secured him a runner-up position overall.

    Garcia’s return to the Enduro World Championship has been an exciting one. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing star was never off the podium in Enduro2 throughout all six events, and he enjoyed double victories in the EnduroGP category in both Estonia and Portugal. Garcia can also reflect on a superb season in which he also won the outright overall of the International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) in Italy.

    Josep Garcia:   “To come back to the series after three years away and win the Enduro2 title is a dream come true. The beginning of the year was tough for me – it took me a while to get up to speed and of course the level is very high. After making a few mistakes in the first couple of rounds, I knew I had to change my mindset and the way I raced. It all came together at the ISDE this year, and after winning that, I was a lot more confident coming into the final rounds of the world championship. It’s frustrating not to take the EnduroGP title this year, but after being away from the series for three years, I’m really pleased that I came back and took these results. I have to be pleased with second in EnduroGP, and of course to win my second title in Enduro2 is great, but I know I have the speed to win, so I’m looking forward to next year already.”

    Fabio Farioli – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Enduro Team Manager:   “It was a good season for us. In the beginning Josep needed some time to get back to the top level and the rhythm of racing in the FIM Enduro World Championship having had three years away from the series. His preparation was also delayed in the winter due to an injury, but he came back fighting, and his confidence grew over the season. The fight for both titles was really exciting, with a very high level of competition and of course to win the Enduro2 category was really great for us, as well as the victory at the ISDE. I’d like to say a big congratulations to Josep on becoming world champion again and to thank the team for all of their hard work this season. We look forward to coming back even stronger next year.”

    Robert Jonas – Vice President Motorsports Offroad:   “We are really proud of what Josep and the team have achieved this year after we stepped back into the FIM EnduroGP World Championship. We know how capable he is and winning another title was always our goal, but we knew, like always, it would be a challenge. I’d like to thank Josep for his hard work and dedication – he is an incredibly talented rider that has put together a fantastic season aboard his KTM 350 EXC-F. He has not only won the Enduro2 World Championship, but was also battling for the EnduroGP title until the final round and we also should not forget his incredible overall victory at the ISDE. It’s been a great season – and now we will enjoy this moment celebrating Josep and the team’s success.”

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Matthias Walkner has taken KTM’s third consecutive FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship with a second-place finish at the Rallye Du Maroc aboard his KTM 450 RALLY. Austrian racer Walkner had a 20-point advantage at the top of the championship standings heading into round four of five in the series, and knew he had to put in a strong performance in order to clinch the title in Morocco. Walkner took the lead of the rally on stage two before falling foul of a tricky note in the road book on stage three. The 2018 Dakar winner came back fighting to narrowly miss the stage victory on stage four ahead of the final day. On the fifth and final day, Walkner knew exactly what was needed of him over the 166km timed special to score enough points to claim the 2021 world title. The KTM racer finished eighth for second overall, securing his second FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship. The victory is KTM’s third consecutive win in the series with Toby Price and Sam Sunderland earning the 2018 and 2019 titles, before the 2020 series was cancelled due to the global pandemic. KTM has taken the championship honors six times from the last nine seasons of competition. Of the three rounds raced of the series so far, Walkner has shown incredible consistency, finishing as runner-up at the high-speed Rally Kazakhstan, before taking the win in the contrasting conditions of the epic Silk Way Rally, less than one month later. Now, with another top-two result in Morocco, the experienced 35-year-old has shown he is clearly on form and will now be aiming to carry his winning momentum into the final round of the series at Abu Dhabi before focusing on the 2022 Dakar next January. Matthias Walkner: “It’s been a super cool rally for me (in Morocco). I set out this morning hoping to take the win, but I made a small mistake about halfway through that only maybe cost me a minute, but it was enough on the shortened stage to lose out. Second place is great though and to win the world championship title early is amazing. The team have been great all year, so a big thank you to them. It’s time to relax now and really enjoy the moment.” Norbert Stadlbauer – Rally Team Manager: “We are very happy with the result overall – we came here to bring home the title one event early and we’ve managed to do that. It’s been a very positive race for the whole team and now we will look ahead to Abu Dhabi and then on to Dakar in January.” Robert Jonas – Vice President Motorsports Offroad: “To claim another FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship is a credit to Matthias and the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team and it’s a victory that we’re very proud of. There is no doubt how hard Matthias works to be at the top of his game both on and off the bike; he has maintained the consistency and speed needed while navigating throughout this year’s races to bring home the trophy with his KTM 450 RALLY. Congratulations to Matthias and the team.”

    KTM is plugged in and ready to buzz the biggest stage in international motocross thanks to the brand-new European Junior E-Motocross series that will debut at Mantova, Italy and the 74th edition of the Motocross of Nations this weekend. The most prestigious annual event for off-road motorcycle circuit racing is famous for bringing fans together under their national flags to support the three fastest riders from their selected country. The Motocross of Nations has delivered a battle of the ‘best of the best’ for more than seven decades and will now welcome and highlight the potential heroes for years to come with a new and exciting junior electric racing category. The European Junior E-Motocross Series is a ground-breaking five-round contest and will celebrate its international launch in the sand of the Tazio Nuvolari circuit in Mantova, Italy. In short, the initial invitational will bring almost 40 of the quickest and hungriest kids into the ideal learning environment, many of whom will be steering KTM’s potent electric minicycle: the KTM SX-E 5. the MX of Nations layout with the national teams, bikes and vibe of the whole spectacle is certainly something that will be memorable for any impressionable dirtbiker!
    Among the junior racers to come to Italy is Jagger Maddison, younger son of famed stunt motorcyclist Robbie. The Australian is already aware of the performance of the KTM SX-E 5 and is now ready to show his mettle under the watchful gaze of the international community of Pros and fans.
    The KTM SX-E 5 should be the most prominent bike in the gate at Mantova for what will be an educational introduction to elite race tracks as well as a learning experience in front of an international audience. The European Junior E-Motocross Series goes on to join the 2021 FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship at the next four rounds in Germany, France, and Spain (a double-header). The KTM SX-E 5 has a host of premium and innovative features, such as the adjustable subframe that lets the bike ‘grow’ with the kids. WP XACT Suspension, a light steel chromoly frame and 907Wh of stored energy that allows up to two hours of riding time.
    At the end of the season all riders taking part in the full European Junior E-Motocross Series will be able to enjoy a three-day training camp with a KTM world championship team and the EMXE Junior Series champion will win their pick of a KTM off-road bike.
    Florian Burguet, Vice President KTM Global Marketing:  “The European Junior E-Motocross series is not only a fabulous opportunity to allow youngsters to see and feel what it’s like to be part of a top level championship but also to show what our electric mini motocross bikes can do. It’s amazing that we can give the riders the chance to take it to the track at Mantova and be part of an occasion like the Motocross of Nations and then really get stuck into the championship during the Grands Prix. We love racing and EMXE Junior is about welcoming new kids and names and faces into this special world. It’s a big deal for the Group, and we hope that riders and their families can have fun, can learn and experience something that’s new and unique in international motocross.”
    David Luongo, CEO Infront Motor Racing:  “When we talked with KTM AG about establishing the European Junior E-Motocross series we were excited to be able to bring this proven electric technology to MXGP and then being able to make the international launch at Mantova. It doesn’t get much bigger or better than the Motocross of Nations. With KTM we know the competition will be first-class in terms of organisation, and ensuring the best and safest learning experiences for the kids. It’s an important and novel addition to our racing structure and a very welcome one. We can’t wait to see the bikes and the kids in the sand in Italy.”

    Wrapping up a remarkable 18-year, 9 FIM World Championships and 93 Grand Prix winning career at the end of 2021, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing icon Antonio Cairoli will move into an ambassadorial role with the KTM factory for the foreseeable future.
    • Antonio Cairoli is in the running for a 10th FIM World Championship in 2021 
    • #222 has won 6 out of his 9 FIM World Championships on KTM machinery
    • Cairoli has amassed 93 GP victories wins and 177 podiums to-date
    • The Italian will provide his expertise in key segments within the KTM group for the future
    Antonio ‘Tony’ Cairoli announced his plans at a special press conference alongside KTM management in Rome, today. The Italian will bring down the curtain on a glittering world championship career in which he has become statistically the second most decorated rider in the history of the sport and the greatest racer from his country to have thrown a leg over a motocross machine. Importantly, Tony gave KTM a first premier class crown in 2010 (his fourth and second in MXGP). He followed the achievement with a further four titles – all with the KTM 350 SX-F – before triumphing again in 2017 with the KTM 450 SX-F. Together with Claudio de Carli and his loyal technical crew, Cairoli has been a mainstay of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team, image and development program since that first 2010 season. He has won at least one Grand Prix in all his 18 terms. Currently, Tony is still very much in the mix for a coveted 10th FIM World Championship title. Prior to this weekend’s FIM MXGP of Sardegna (ITA), Cairoli has accrued one win and five podium finishes from the nine rounds of 2021 MXGP. He is third in the standings and only 29 points from the top of the table. Cairoli’s contract extension with the KTM family means that the Italian will provide his expertise in various segments and potential future endeavors within the KTM group, all with the aim to continue developing the sport of Motocross for all audiences. Tony Cairoli:   “This is not an easy decision. I’ve always said that numbers and statistics did not mean that much to me. I think it was an achievement for me and my family to win one world championship so to have had a career like this is very special. I feel that it is the right time to stop. Everything around me makes it seem like the right decision, and we are still trying to win the title this year, so the motivation is high for this challenge. I want to thank all those who have helped me and supported me since I came to the world championship, and all along the way actually. There have been many faces and names and of course all the excitement and love from the fans. I have felt very much part of the KTM family from day one and we will continue our work and relationship together, but now in a different way. There is a lot more to do in life after 2021 but for now our goal is very clear.”    Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director:  “Our story started in an impressive way because when Tony came to KTM when we still hadn’t won a title in the premier class and we were also developing the KTM 350 SX-F, so it’s like there were two challenges to conquer! To then win five consecutive championships and establish the 350 concept was a big milestone for us. Over the years the relationship became closer and the friendship grew even more. A lot of our success both in the U.S. and in MXGP arrived because of those first years with Tony and the belief that he had in us and the vision for the future. It’s something we didn’t forget and we won’t forget.” Robert Jonas, VP of Motorsports Offroad:   “We’re immensely proud to have been such a major part of Tony’s career story and to have contributed so much to one of the best motocross racers the sport has ever seen. When we first started working together with a motorcycle that was almost a gamble for the highest level of the world championship at that time, I don’t think we could have imagined the success that would come, and just how deep Tony was able to make his impression on MXGP. He has fans all over the world and some of the biggest are right here in the factory. It will be strange not to see that orange #222 on the track next season but his passion for riding and his experience will still be big assets for us. The story doesn’t quite end here.”   The 2021 calendar is due to finish with the Grand Prix of Mantova on 10/11. After this event, Tony will remain very much part of the KTM family and part of the KTM race department activities.

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb concluded the 2021 AMA Supercross 450SX Championship season with a dominating victory aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION at the final round in Salt Lake City, Utah at the beginning of May to clinch his second, and KTM’s fifth crown in the ultra-competitive series. Widely recognized for his grit and determination to win, Webb has overcome his share of adversity since earning his first 450SX title in 2019. As the 2020 runner-up in Supercross, Webb missed most of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship due to a back injury and he even had a challenging start to 2021 with a ninth-place finish at the opening round. However, in true champion’s form Webb spent the early part of the season chipping away at the points deficit, as he prepared for a strong comeback in the second half of the series. The 25-year-old from North Carolina entered the final round with a comfortable 22-point advantage in the standings, but that didn’t slow the KTM ace when it came time for the gate to drop at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Webb delivered his eighth victory of the season with a masterful performance; the KTM racer concluded the 2021 series with his 13th podium from 17 races to secure the AMA Supercross 450SX class title, an FIM World Championship. Marvin Musquin furthered a remarkable night for the team as he delivered a strong runner-up performance to give Red Bull KTM Factory Racing back-to-back 1-2 podium sweeps in the final two races. From the last seven seasons, KTM has taken the prestigious AMA Supercross 450SX title on five occasions along with two closely fought runner-up results. The Austrian manufacturer is proud to again demonstrate its READY TO RACE philosophy with this latest success. Cooper Webb: “It’s been a heck of a year with everything in the world going on, but we dug deep this year and stayed the course. It’s been an incredible journey, a hard-fought season with a lot of hard races but this is all worth it right here. Being a two-time champion is incredible and to get the win tonight is the cherry on top. I’m speechless, this is incredible.” Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “This season I think was Cooper’s strongest season – he got his most wins, and the competition was really tough, but he just fought his way through there. What a fighter, he was exceptionally strong at the end of all the races, and he put up a battle with so many guys on the last lap and came out victorious many times. Once we got to round four, he really found his groove and then he took command of the points lead around the middle of the season and there was no looking back. It was truly an amazing season, and it was awesome to be a part of it. Our team, everybody involved, they all did exactly what they needed to and more and we delivered, so I’m super happy.” Roger De Coster – Director of Motorsports, North America: “There have been many great champions over the years but when it comes to race craft and the really deep desire to win, Cooper is special and he ranks at the very top. Even when it was not necessary to win today – he could have just rode around and 18th would have been sufficient – but he decided he wanted to win the race and it was very impressive how he ended the season. The guy has so much heart, he keeps impressing me time after time and I’m really thankful for that. I’m also thankful for the people that make this possible because of course the rider is the biggest factor in this sport by a long margin, but there are also a lot of people that make this possible that have influence and make a difference in getting there. Especially the people in Austria, also Slovenia with Akrapovic and then all the people in the U.S. like WP Suspension, Carlos (Cooper’s mechanic) and so many other people that have something to do with this championship. I’m just thankful to still be a part of it and witness this awesome racing.” Robert Jonas - Vice President Motorsports Offroad: “It has been an incredible Supercross season. Cooper fought back to find some impressive consistency week after week and was able to deliver victories when it mattered most to take his second AMA Supercross 450SX Championship. It is KTM’s fifth championship victory in the category and our KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION is proven once again. I’d like to congratulate Cooper and the entire Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team for all of their success in what has been another intense season. Thanks also goes to everyone involved in achieving this victory - including those back at the factory in Austria, KTM R&D, KTM North America and to all of our partners. It’s great for us to be able to reflect on such a memorable season and celebrate this special achievement together.”  The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team will take a few weeks off from racing as they gear up for the 2021 AMA Pro Motocross Championship, which is set to begin on Saturday, May 29 in Pala, California.

    KTM Factory Racing unveiled the KTM RC16 colors for the 2021 MotoGP FIM World Championship through a digital presentation that introduced the new look, line-ups and objectives for the anticipated season ahead. On March 28th 2021 MotoGP will tear away from the Losail International Circuit grid and into the Qatari night. As winners of the final round of 2020, perhaps more eyes will be on the four KTM RC16s that will inhabit rows spots and in the hands of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Brad Binder (South African, 25) and Miguel Oliveira (Portuguese, 26) and Tech3 KTM Factory Racing’s Danilo Petrucci (Italian, 30) and Iker Lecuona (Spanish, 21).
    The manufacturer will be hoping to surpass their 4th position in the 2020 Constructors Standings and add to their grand total of three Pole Positions, nine podium trophies and three victories in what will be only their fifth season in the MotoGP paddock. The four-bike roster heads the KTM GP Academy: a stream of potential star athletes and machinery that stretches through the support classes of Moto2 and Moto3 and down into talent-spotting initiatives such as the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and the Northern Talent Cup.
    The 2021 liveries for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and the fetching all-orange design for Tech3 KTM Factory Racing will add a prominent aesthetic to what will hopefully be another gripping MotoGP contest. Brad Binder, #33: “2020 in general was a season where I feel we achieved a lot, a few good results and obviously with the first victory – or KTM’s first victory – being the main thing. But there were also many days when we had the potential to do so much more. For sure now the margin is a little bit smaller to try and improve but I think as the season went on last year, even though we had a little bit of a slump in the middle, things got better and better. I felt like I was improving not only for the results but in the way approaching the weekends and going session-by-session. At the moment I feel that we have a really, really strong package. We are in a good direction and I am super-excited to get back on the bike this year.”

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tom Vialle has been crowned 2020 FIM MX2 Motocross World Champion after winning the first moto aboard his KTM 250 SX-F at the MXGP of Pietramurata in Arco di Trento, Italy today, Wednesday November 4.

    Vialle continues a rich MX2 history for KTM as the ninth rider to win a championship title in the lower capacity class aboard a KTM 250 SX-F. The Frenchman, who came into the penultimate round of 2020 with a sizeable points lead, took a dominant win in the opening moto at the picturesque Italian track to secure an emotional first world title.

    In only his second term racing at Grand Prix level, 20-year-old Vialle has demonstrated incredible talent and maturity in his approach throughout the 18-round championship. In a year of difficulties due to the global pandemic, Vialle’s strong start to 2020 was halted when MXGP racing was abruptly paused after just two rounds back in early March.

    The Frenchman returned for round three in Kegums, Latvia in August to win his second Grand Prix of the season, ahead of an intense schedule of races in the weeks following. The KTM star battled hard with the MX2 competition, scoring consistently strong results to earn a comfortable lead thanks to his seven Grand Prix overall victories heading into the final triple-header of the year.

    With 13 moto wins and 13 podiums so far this season, Vialle sensationally put his name in the history books by clinching the 2020 MX2 World Championship title to add to KTM’s outstanding success tally. The Frenchman’s victory confirms KTM’s fifth consecutive title in the category, with 13 championship victories in 17 years of MX2 competition for the Austrian manufacturer.

    The final race of the season will take place this Sunday, November 8 at the Pietramurata circuit in Arco di Trento for the MXGP of Garda Trentino.

    Tom Vialle – FIM MX2 Motocross World Champion
    “I’m so happy but there have been a lot of emotions today. I was a bit angry with the verdict (in qualifying) this morning but to make the holeshot and lead the first moto was fantastic. I was almost crying on the last lap. There was so much emotion. It was really special. Crazy. In the second moto we had some bad luck, but the important thing is that we achieved our goal. I want to say a big thanks to the whole team and everybody who worked together to make this happen. It was tiring to have a lot of races so close together and also keep the concentration through the training. I think we did it pretty good.”

    Dirk Gruebel - Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager
    “Tom showed his potential in his first year with us in 2019. There was real progression, but then over the winter he made another big step to be a title contender and world champion. He didn’t look back. He doesn’t get nervous. He had real competition, but Tom finished every race in a good spot, mainly in the top five, mostly in the top three. That’s the key to being world champion and now we are here celebrating. Hats-off to him and his family, it’s unbelievable. We are known for having a fast 250 – also a 450! – but I still think we have the benchmark in MX2 for everybody and Tom is another rider who knows how to make starts with it. It’s a really good motorcycle and we’ve been winning since 2004 with that concept. Tom being the ninth world champion shows its quality.”

    Robert Jonas - KTM Vice President Motorsports Offroad
    “It’s been fantastic to see Tom grow with the team over the past two years and ultimately win the FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship; his maturity and approach to what has been a season of challenges with a lot of uncertainty has really paid off. Despite the natural pressure he had personally to step up again after his results last year, Tom has kept calm to make it happen week by week and our KTM 250 SX-F is proven once again. I wish Tom and his family huge congratulations for this incredible achievement, as we share this special moment together. I would like to congratulate Joel, Dirk and the entire Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team for their fantastic work with Tom to help nurture his talent and unlock his potential. To take a victory is never easy at this level, and we know 2020 has been a big challenge for everyone with a different type of intensity – but we are proud to have come through and to be celebrating this championship win.”

    KTM celebrated its second MotoGP victory in the space of two weeks with Miguel Oliveira’s brilliantly judged first-ever success at the Red Bull Ring this weekend (August 21-23). The 25-year old not only claimed the first win for his Red Bull KTM Tech3 team in MotoGP but also for Portugal. Pol Espargaró fought for the checkered flag until the last corner and scored his second career podium in third place – a first double rostrum for the Austrian manufacturer in the premier class. KTM had all four RC16s in the top 10; more than any other brand. Celestino Vietti posted KTM’s second Moto3 victory in a row. A second Grand Prix in the space of seven days took place in the picturesque but challenging setting of the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. Espargaró set off from Pole Position for the fifth outing of the season. The Spaniard launched from P1 for what was the first Pole for the factory (and the rider) in less than four terms in the premier class of MotoGP and just four years after KTM had announced their MotoGP plans and ambitions at the same circuit. An accident midway through the 28-lap spectacle produced the red flag for an air fence to be repaired at Turn 1. The 900th premier class race was restarted with a 12-lap distance and with all four KTM RC16s hunting the leading group. Espargaró surged to the front and engaged in a thrilling duel with Jack Miller on the last circulation. Miguel Oliveira was also extremely close and poised to make the most of any mistake. When Espargaró and Miller ran deep into the final turn Oliveira read the situation to perfection; powering past to claim the checkered flag on what was his 150th Grand Prix start. The result was also noteworthy for Red Bull KTM Tech3, representing their maiden triumph in the premier class in just their second campaign wearing KTM colors. Brad Binder, who clinched KTM’s first MotoGP victory in Brno just two races previously, secured 8 points for 8th position and remains 4th in a very close world championship table. The South African rookie was again very quick to make ground with the front-runners. Iker Lecuona charged to 10th. The Spaniard ended a positive fortnight at the Red Bull Ring: he notched his best ever MotoGP classification the previous Sunday with 9th and then his second top-10 result at the Styrian event. KTM is 3rd in the Constructors standings, just six points away from the top. The excellent progress as the youngest manufacturer at the highest level means KTM now concedes its concession status and will join its rivals in terms of testing, wildcard and engine limitations. An achievement in itself. Oliveira’s success ended Ducati’s clean sweep at the Red Bull Ring since 2016. Miguel Oliveira: “I’m very emotional…there is so much I want to say but I cannot at the moment. A big thank you to all the people that believed in me starting with my family, everyone in the team, sponsors and the Portuguese crowd. Thank you so much for your support. This is history today for me and my country and I couldn’t be happier to do it here in the home of KTM and Red Bull.” Pol Espargaró: “Anyone can win those kinds of races! Pretty crazy. I was fighting with Jack until the last corner and Miguel was able to profit but that’s racing. It was a beautiful race. Anyway, we made the podium, we are up here and I’m super-happy.” Brad Binder: “It was a good race. The first one was going really well and I was slowly catching up ground. To get up to 6th was already great. I felt really, really good. Unfortunately with the red flag and the restart I didn’t make the best decision with the tires and really struggled to stop, even running off at Turn 1 but I was able to come back to 8th. All-in-all we should be happy. I gave my best out there and the bike was fantastic. The team worked really well and I’m super-excited for the next race. I think we can do a good job at Misano.” Iker Lecuona: “For sure, I’m really happy. I finished in the top 10 again. In the first race, I overtook many riders, I had a very good pace and I was in ninth position. The best for me was to pass [Valentino] Rossi, because he was always my idol. This moment was very important for me. In the second part of the race my start was not great, I lost some positions, but I came back, stayed in 10th position and was having some great fights. I’m really happy. Thank you to my team. Thank you to KTM for the opportunity and congrats to KTM for Pol and obviously to my teammate Miguel!” Mike Leitner, Red Bull KTM Race Manager: “An unbelievable race. We had all four bikes in the top ten at our home race and with two riders fighting for victory. Pol was pushing all the way with Jack on the last lap and we know that the last two corners are crucial at this track. Both went wide but fortunately Miguel was in a great position to bring home the race and we’re super-happy about that. Both riders deserved it because Pol rode so well. Brad and Iker also scored good points and we have shown that the performance of the RC16 is really there.” Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “It is hard to find the right words after such a wonderful day. I remember so well our first GP in Qatar when we started from last place and my words to our CEO Mr Pierer that we would turn things around and park our bike on the other side of the grid. We’ve had a double today: Pole and a win at our home Grand Prix with Moto3 as well and all four MotoGP bikes in the top ten with two on the podium. The project overall has been amazing. We have gone our own way and that approach is paying off. The team spirit and the atmosphere with so many people here at the circuit and back at the factory pushing like crazy bringing the results: it’s like a dream come true. I will need some time now to realize what has happened these last weeks.” Hervé Poncharal, Red Bull KTM Tech3 Team Principal: “What an incredible day, incredible emotions! It is something like forty years we’ve been in this business and we never won a MotoGP race. Today our dream came true. Here in Austria, which is in front of our title sponsor Red Bull, in front of the KTM management, our manufacturer. I would like also to dedicate this victory to Miguel because he has been pushing a lot. Year one was not easy; he was injured the second half of the season. We’ve been fast since the beginning of this year, the bike improved, he improved. Now we’ve done it. I’m very proud to see two KTMs on the rostrum. Clearly, this is now one of the bikes to beat. So let’s celebrate tonight and let’s hope there will be some other exciting days like today.” Moto2 & Moto3 SKY Racing Team VR46’s Celestino Vietti celebrated his very first Moto3 Grand Prix win aboard KTM machinery and his fifth appearance on the podium. In Moto2 Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jorge Martin was harshly denied a second consecutive victory. The Spaniard rode brilliantly to lead from start to flag and deflected the attentions of Marco Bezzecchi. Martin was later demoted to 2nd after he marginally touched the green zone track limits on the final lap and was penalized. Martin is joint 2nd in the championship. Teammate Tetsuta Nagashima was 4th.

    KTM made history in Brno, Czech Republic yesterday as Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Brad Binder sensationally clinched the Austrian manufacturer’s first MotoGP victory in only his third premier class race aboard the KTM RC16. Round three of the 2020 series will remain a poignant and memorable event for KTM, which entered the MotoGP series full-time in 2017 with the then newly-developed KTM RC16. The manufacturer has since enjoyed front row qualifying results and a podium finish prior to yesterday’s incredible victory, where rookie Binder rewarded the project’s efforts at the Automotodrom Brno.

    Binder rode a calculated race, working his way through the front-runners from his seventh position on the grid to take the lead with nine laps to go of 21. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider went from strength-to-strength, stretching out a comfortable advantage to take his, KTM’s and South Africa’s first ever race win in MotoGP – the pinnacle of two-wheeled motorsport. Binder is also the first rookie to win a race since 2013. Teammate Pol Espargaró, who has played a pivotal role in KTM’s MotoGP campaign and enjoyed the manufacturer’s maiden podium in the class in 2018, was unlucky to miss out on the battle for victory in yesterday’s race after colliding with another rider in the fight for third place. Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Miguel Oliveira enjoyed his best finish in the class with sixth position.

    KTM’s fourth season in the MotoGP category has proven exciting so far with the KTM RC16 battling at the sharp end of the field in the opening three races. The test team with rider Mika Kallio, who has been involved with the project from the beginning, along with MotoGP legend Dani Pedrosa has been fundamental in accelerating the development of the KTM RC16 in combination with the race team and engineers from KTM’s base in Munderfing and Mattighofen. In addition, this major sporting milestone for the brand also highlights KTM’s commitment to developing young riders as Binder has raced aboard orange machinery successfully in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Moto3™, Moto2™ and now finally MotoGP.

    Brad Binder: “Honestly, right now, I’m lost for words. I’ve dreamt of this since I was a little boy and today it came true. It is amazing to win my first GP [in MotoGP]. Thank you to everybody who supported me, and the whole team; they put an insane motorcycle beneath me today! I didn’t know if we could win but I knew we would have a go. It was the craziest ten laps of my life at the end. I was being as soft as I could. It was incredible. Unbelievable.”

    Miguel Oliveira: “It was a good end to the weekend. We had a decent race and I feel that we have done a good job the entire weekend. Looking at the race, our starting position cost us a better result but we need to live with that and do a better job next race in just a few days’ time.”

    Pol Espargaró: “It’s unfair but it is racing, and we have to deal with these things. I was behind Brad and watching the others and playing with the maps to be strong at the end. I felt I could make ‘58s in the last laps, so I was trying to be relaxed when the contact happened. I could not show my potential and win the first race for KTM but I’m happy for Brad because he’s a good guy and works hard. We had a real chance today and we’ll hope for another one very soon.”

    Mike Leitner , Red Bull KTM Race Manager: “It was amazing today. All weekend we felt quite competitive on this track with good lap-times among the riders and we expected something from the race. Brad had the race pace and Pol was at the same point, and even though we could not be happier we could have had even more from this GP! Miguel also did great to take sixth so in general we are more than happy. We started this project in 2017 and many people have been involved. We built a complete infrastructure in KTM. People in the company had the right mentality because we had to push; we did not have the road racing history of other manufacturers we are competing against. When I look back at these three years there have been ups-and-downs but the pay-off has been unbelievable today. We’ve seen in Jerez – and again here – that we are much closer to the front. On this long, technical track at Brno, and with our different technical philosophy with a steel chassis and WP Suspension, we got the job done and it’s a great payback to every person who has been connected to the project. I’m very happy to give back something to the KTM board for the great investment they made, their 100% belief and our main sponsor who also had full belief in us. Now, we will go to our home Grand Prix and will work hard from FP1.”

    Pit Beirer , KTM Motorsports Director: “For KTM this is an unbelievable day. It’s historic for our company and for the whole team but of course for Brad Binder, who has believed in us and our project for many years. Today is payback for so much hard work. We knew we had a better bike for this year and this did not happen by accident: it came from everything we learned during the last years. With Dani Pedrosa, Mika Kallio and the test team we worked and developed for over a full year to have this bike now. At the end of the day you need a fantastic rider to put the bike on the top step and Brad did it today, and in the same style as he won in Moto3 and Moto2 races for us. It´s an incredible feeling and we will now build on this result. On the other hand, I want to thank Pol Espargaro because also he - together with his crew – brought every piece of the puzzle together to bring this project to the top. Today is the result of a fantastic team effort; at home in Munderfing and Mattighofen, through the test team and a great crew on track.”

    Stefan Pierer , CEO KTM AG: “It is difficult to describe the intense emotions we feel on this very special and historic day for KTM. Firstly, I would like to congratulate Brad not only on his exceptional ride, but his loyalty and belief in KTM for many years – we will certainly enjoy this moment together. I would also like to share our thanks to Pol for his incredible effort in helping us achieve this victory; his work has been pivotal in the whole project and in reaching this point where we see our bikes near or at the front of the field. Since we began this program our ambition has been the same as it is for every racing discipline, and we knew that achieving our goals here would be exceptionally difficult, but not impossible. Step by step we have been moving closer and closer to the front, defying some expectations as we continued to believe in what we could achieve. To win a race in our fourth year in MotoGP is testament to the work ethic and knowhow of our KTM Motorsports department and R&D engineers. I would like to offer our special thanks to Pit Beirer and Mike Leitner for their lead in the project, and tireless work in making this program a success. Our vision is to create a clear pathway with our riders to the top, and this has been achieved with Brad following his success with KTM in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Moto3 and Moto2. We now look forward to our ‘home’ races at the Red Bull Ring where we can celebrate this huge milestone in KTM’s story.”

    KTM’s READY TO RACE mantra is perfectly channeled in the 2021 version of the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA. In recent years, this limited production model has gained elevated status thanks to the components and performance that have come directly from requests by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Toby Price, Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland. This is a motorcycle designed to excel in multi-stage cross-country rallies, to satisfy even the toughest demands of the rally racer and to win.

    The fiery 450 cc SOHC fuel-injection motor is wrapped in a competition-based chassis with a series of finer details to denote the exclusivity of this machine. Those specs include refined WP XACT PRO closed cartridge suspension with sophisticated Cone Valve technology and purposeful aerodynamics and ergonomics crafted for peerless handling across a wide breadth of terrain.

    For 2021, KTM has honed the engine package with a brand-new gearbox and revised shift mechanism. The direct influence of PANKL Racing Systems materials inside the KTM Motorsport department meant technicians were able to further hike the bike’s excellent reliability, but also benefit the rider with a larger gear spread.

    The habits and styles of the three Red Bull KTM Factory Racing riders – all of whom have sampled Dakar Rally winning success in the last half a decade – assisted in the finalization of gearing ratios. The result is that the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA now comes with the same gear ratios as those advocated on the machines of Dakar Rally champions.

    Stefan Huber, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Rally Team Leader:   “The work goes on! We’re proud of the 2021 KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA. With this model we have already set the bar very high in giving the customers a product so close to what we prepare and take to rallies across the world. Of course, we always make new discoveries, and this means the 2021 bike is a significant upgrade. The gearbox construction and configuration will make a difference to the riders who want to push the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA. It is crucial for us to be able to transfer what we learn directly into the hands of KTM riders. We’re here to win races but making a better product is very important and satisfying. I personally look forward to seeing this incredible machine in racing action at the upcoming 2021 Dakar Rally!”

    The 2021 KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA is a highly sought-after, limited edition model restricted to 85 units worldwide. The price tag is fixed at EUR 25.900 (plus VAT & shipping) with availability from September 2020 onwards. A service and support package is available for a limited number of riders at the Dakar Rally at an additional cost for all KTM Rally models.

    All of the laps, victories, trophies and technical research through Motocross and Supercross races have flowed into the enhancements and upgrades found in the 2021 KTM SX range: the widest and most technically advanced pool of READY TO RACE machinery available on the market to this date.

    During 2019, KTM secured its fourth AMA 450SX Supercross Championship with Cooper Webb’s triumph on the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. In the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship, KTM obtained 13 podium finishes with three different riders banking six wins aboard the KTM 450 SX-F.

    The prolificacy of the KTM 250 SX-F continued in MX2, with Jorge Prado clinching his second FIM MX2 World Championship in 2019. Also, on the international stage, eight of the first nine positions in the 2019 FIM 125cc Motocross World Championship belonged to the KTM 125 SX and crowns were lifted in both the 85 cc and 65 cc divisions.

    The feedback collected by racing achievements globally helped KTM R&D update the KTM SX model range for 2021 with two core objectives: to create the lightest, best-handling, most powerful, usable and well-equipped motocross bikes and to ensure that riders of any age or ability will find the exact technical package they require.

    Improvements for 2021 across the full-size range focus on suspension and chassis modifications, tweaks to engine architecture to further enhance reliability, new Dunlop tires and a reworked graphics aesthetic. The WP XACT front forks and rear shocks have been overhauled with new components as well as being reconfigured with a slightly firmer standard setting to increase confidence and comfort across a wider spread of surfaces. Dunlop’s Geomax MX-33 is the rubber of choice for the KTM SX models thanks to its versatility and race proven performance.

    As the flagship model in the 4-stroke range, the KTM 450 SX-F benefits from modifications to the piston, crankshaft, engine casing, rocker arms and shift locker to further hike the bike’s excellent reliability, shave more weight and aid practicality in terms of general maintenance.

    In addition, the 2021 KTM 450 SX-F together with the new KTM 350 SX-F and KTM 250 SX-F machines can connect with the advanced myKTM app using an extra Connectivity Unit kit - available in the KTM PowerParts catalog. With the bar-pad-integrated Connectivity Unit fitted and the myKTM app installed, riders can personalize their KTM SX-F according to their preferences and track conditions without technical assistance. Offering the finest technical touch, the myKTM app allows for a wide spectrum of adjustability on the fly, a privilege that was limited to elite KTM factory riders until recently.

    As a towering example of power-to-weight ratio excellence in the KTM 2-stroke range, the 2021 KTM 125 SX is boldened with a fresh piston and clutch internals, with the treatment extending to the 250 cc-bothering KTM 150 SX.

    KTM treats its Sportminicycle roster with the same ground-up priority for development as the full-size bikes. The KTM 85 SX, KTM 65 SX and KTM 50 SX & KTM 50 SX MINI therefore count on a new throttle assembly for better and smoother throttle action. For the KTM 85 SX , braking potential is much higher thanks to larger discs and a completely new front and rear brake system made by FORMULA. All three junior motocrossers now have a tapered handlebar allowing fitment of ODI lock-on grips. For the KTM 50 SX and KTM 50 SX MINI , the new tapered handlebar allows fitment of thinner grips.

    “The development work never stops for our engineers here in Mattighofen or over in the USA. Gathering feedback from top-level Motocross and Supercross racers from every part of the world, for model year 2021 we are proud to introduce the most technically advanced line-up of motocrossers on the market. Class leaders in terms of performance, the 2021 models enjoy detailed refinements combined with updated racy looks across the range. For 2021, we are very pleased to introduce the myKTM app for all 4-stroke models, an advanced tool designed to help riders get the best out of their potential,”  confirmed KTM´s Product Manager Offroad, Joachim Sauer.

    To intensify the updated 2021 KTM SX and KTM Sportminicycles look no further than the  KTM PowerParts  range. Designed by the engineers in Austria, these premium components can take any KTM SX to new heights.

    In addition, adult and junior riders alike can stay READY TO RACE with the  KTM PowerWear  collection. High-quality riding gear, premium protection and casual clothing are included in the KTM PowerWear line-up.

    The 2021 KTM SX range will become available at KTM dealers worldwide from June 2020 onwards. 

    The European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY heads to Greece in 2020

    Profil anzeigen
    KTM is proud to announce the venue for the fourth annual edition of the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY, which will take place in Nafpaktos, Greece, on June 9-12, 2020. With the 2020 KTM ADVENTURE RALLY basecamp set in the beachside town of Nafpaktos, 200 attendees will be able to join an exclusive READY TO RACE community event that will include three full days of riding in some of the best mountain trails Greece has to offer.

    Following two successful editions in Italy and one in Bosnia in 2019, the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY is complementing established KTM ADVENTURE events that have been taking place in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and South Africa. With its latest edition in Bosnia receiving raving reviews by participants and media, the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY sets sails for the historic city of Nafpaktos, the starting point for a three-day-long exploration of the heart of mountainous Greece.

    Starting right next to the crystal-clear waters of the Corinthian Gulf, it will take no time for 2020 European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY participants to find themselves in the sun-drenched trails and the endless mountain roads of mainland Greece. Nafpaktos and the surrounding mountains hold a special place in Chris Birch’s heart, with the KTM ambassador earning a remarkable fourth overall at the last edition of the Hellas Rally aboard a KTM 790 ADVENTURE R.

    Organized by KTM, the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY is a community event designed to suit all rider abilities – from beginners to seasoned Adventure professionals. For 2020, participants can join one of the guided riding groups and enjoy three days of hardcore riding alongside like-minded KTM fans or select the self-navigating option and test their skills exploring the hidden paths of Greece at their own pace. The event will be open to 200 motorcyclists with the following KTM bikes: 640, 690, 390, 790, 950, 990, 1050, 1090, 1190 and 1290 ADVENTURE models.

    Hubert Trunkenpolz (CMO KTM AG) :  “The European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY - as part of the global KTM ADVENTURE RALLY calendar - is a perfect opportunity for us to engage with the flourishing Travel motorcycling community at ground level and collect feedback that will influence the development of the KTM ADVENTURE range. With our range of products enjoying remarkable growth in sales worldwide, READY TO RACE community events such as the European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY allow a wide range of customers to explore the potential of their machines in varied conditions while riding alongside KTM Ambassadors, top-level offroad racers and KTM staff. After an immensely successful 2019 European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY in Bosnia, I’m eager to see adventure-spirited motorcyclists from every part of the world try out their KTM machines in the mountains of Greece in June 2020.”

    KTM show off new triple model threat at EICMA 2019

    Profil anzeigen
    KTM revealed their latest innovations on the first day of the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. The company unveiled three brand new models – the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the KTM 890 DUKE R, and the KTM 390 ADVENTURE – as well as displaying their full gamut of motorcycles for 2020 across a busy exhibition stand. Pride of place was reserved for KTM’s outstanding achievements in the world of racing with the KTM 450 RALLY, the KTM 250 SX-F, the KTM 300 EXC TPI and the KTM RC16 (MotoGP™) prominent. The KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R has been ‘re-Beasted’. KTM’s flagship bike has won rave reviews by catering for the preferences and skills of a vast range of motorcyclists and has undergone its most radical re-invention yet for 2020. A completely new chassis, styling, and electronics mean the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R has trimmed weight across the board, while a reworked LC8 engine has unleashed even more power. KTM have beefed up their potency in the midweight segment with the new KTM 890 DUKE R. Foregoing some of the excellent daily capabilities of its younger brother – the KTM 790 DUKE – the KTM 890 DUKE R is a sportier and edgier naked bike for hard riding. More power and more torque come from the new engine, which has been teamed with ‘racier’ ergonomics, better brakes, and fully adjustable WP APEX suspension. The KTM 890 DUKE R is ideal for the motorcyclist wanting a more extreme experience or searching for bigger thrills and ‘flickability’ compared to a larger capacity model.

    The new KTM 390 ADVENTURE has harnessed the attributes and DNA from the popular and highly rated KTM 790 ADVENTURE as well as the development information gleaned from nearly two decades of Dakar Rally success. A breezy, agile, and ideal entry model for riders keen to discover the ‘adventure’ sensation, this motorcycle offers added versatility for touring and light offroading. Using elements of the KTM 390 DUKE as a base, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE offers proximity to the feeling and performance found at the root of the all-conquering KTM 450 RALLY but with crucial A2 license compatibility and current Euro emissions standards as part of the package. KTM welcomes a ninth consecutive year of growth and another sales record in 2019 while continuing to pursue an even greater global market share and further consolidation as Europe’s leading manufacturer. KTM will also be seeking to build on the strengths of their dealer network and international strategic partnerships.

    After a grand opening this summer, the work, innovation, and history of the brand is now fabulously displayed in a visual and interactive manner at KTM’s new Motohall, located in Mattighofen. Mr. Trunkenpolz, together with KTM Motorsport Director Pit Beirer, also took time to reference the impact and importance of MotoGP™ and the firm’s presence at the elite level of racing as the conclusion of a third season in Grand Prix draws near.

    There was considerable interest in a number of other motorcycles, especially the new KTM SX-E 5; an adjustable and versatile junior electric bike that has the potential to introduce a vast fresh generation to the buzz of riding.

    In what is now customary fashion, KTM celebrated their competitive triumphs for the year. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team earned their 18th Dakar success as well as the FIM Cross Country Rallies World Championship with two different riders. The KTM 450 SX-F was the basis for Cooper Webb’s rookie AMA 450SX Championship win and victories for Tony Cairoli, Jeffrey Herlings, and Glenn Coldenhoff in MXGP. Spanish sensation Jorge Prado used the KTM 250 SX-F to accumulate a record amount of Grand Prix holeshots and won his second consecutive MX2 title. KTM recently launched the KTM 450 SX-F CAIROLI and KTM 250 SX-F PRADO limited editions in recognition of their feats.

    Back on the slicks, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing made fantastic progress in MotoGP™ with four bikes on the premier class grid, two front row starts, and a slew of top ten results from the 19 rounds of a season that is still delivering thrills. Moto2™ and Moto3™ victories were acknowledged and celebrated.

    KTM announced that the fourth instalment of the unique European KTM ADVENTURE RALLY will take place in Greece during June 2020. A KTM ADVENTURE RALLY is the company’s scheme for Adventure riders who want to fully embrace the KTM READY TO RACE spirit and share offroad experiences in incredible surroundings to form unforgettable memories with likeminded motorcyclists – including KTM Ambassadors, factory riders, and staff.

    KTM look to 2020 with great optimism. The surge of almost 10 years of expansion shows no signs of slowing as the company evolves their R&D activities and output for both STREET and OFFROAD markets, fueled by their peerless racing endeavors. They will look to further consolidate their position as the continent’s #1 manufacturer while also exploring other areas of global growth.

As the latest expression of KTM’s offroad vision, the 2021 KTM EXC portfolio is denoted through a fresh and truly READY TO RACE livery. The major upgrades for 2021 take the form of changes to suspension components, as well as engine reinforcements and brand-new graphics. The  KTM 300 EXC TPI  is the leading 2-stroke with an impressive power-to-weight ratio and supreme handling to thrill even the most demanding rider. 2021 marks the fourth year of KTM’s advanced and electronically controlled 2-stroke fuel injection system. Breathing new life into the 2-stroke engine, TPI extended the possibilities for performance, rider sensation and the delivery of dependable power right into the rider’s fingers. The advantages are obvious: there is no need for re-jetting or concern for the climate, altitude or conditions. Automatic and electronically applied lubrication is another major asset. As with all KTM EXC motorcycles in the 2021 ensemble, the KTM 300 EXC TPI benefits from an additional preload adjuster in the WP XPLOR front fork that allows for easy setting changes for varying track or trail conditions. Additionally, the ultra-lightweight  KTM 150 EXC TPI  has been given a new piston, which brings increased performance in terms of consistency. KTM refuses to knock down a gear in its mission to continue making the KTM EXC-F models the best 4-stroke Enduro machines in the market. The level of the 2021 KTM EXC-F models not only ensures their presence near the top of race standings, but also makes them serious consideration for riders of any skill range. While the  KTM 350 EXC-F  is the definitive statement of a bike that welds the power of a 450 with the handling prowess of a 250, the new  KTM 450 EXC-F  and rasping  KTM 500 EXC-F  powerhouses take advantage of reworked shift lockers. The 2021 KTM EXC range is further enhanced by the  KTM EXC SIX DAYS  models and the  KTM 300 EXC TPI ERZBERGRODEO , a series of limited-edition machines designed to conquer the toughest trails and most demanding races. The new  KTM 300 EXC TPI ERZBERGRODEO  is a special tribute to the iconic ErzbergRodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble. A truly limited-edition machine, the  KTM 300 EXC TPI ERZBERGRODEO  features a long list of special parts that reinforce its READY TO RACE bloodline. The updated  KTM EXC SIX DAYS  range continues a tradition that sees KTM enhance its Enduro line-up with a series of truly race-ready machines. For 2021, the  KTM EXC SIX DAYS  models demonstrate KTM’s continuous support to the historic International Six Days Enduro. In each of these models, KTM has developed a race-winning package that is ready for the hardest special tests straight out of the crate. Alongside the 2021 KTM EXC models, dedicated line-ups of KTM PowerWear and KTM PowerParts have been developed to deliver the highest levels of performance, protection and agility for both the rider and their motorcycle. Bikes will be arriving in dealers from July onwards. For more information visit: All details for each of the 2021 KTM EXC models will be available on from June 22 onwards.

    Watson crowned 2020 French Beach Race Champion at Enduropale du Touquet

    Profil anzeigen
    With the infamous Enduropale du Touquet - Le Touquet Beach Race - marking the seventh and final round of the CFS: Championnat de France des Sables, all eyes were on defending champion Nathan Watson to see if he could repeat his 2019 history-making result.

    Watson made a good start to the race and was fighting through the field from around 12th position in the early stages of the three-hour event. Unfortunately, having been a little too keen to get his race started, the British-ace was penalized with a 60-second stop-and-go penalty and had to battle hard to ultimately claim third against a 1,200-rider strong field, which was enough to secure the title.

    Watson won half of the rounds raced in the ultra-competitive winter beach race series (round three of the championship was canceled) with a podium finish at every event aboard his KTM 450 SX-F. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider’s incredible consistency earned him his second consecutive French Beach Race championship title, which is no mean feat in some of the toughest conditions for both man and machine.

    Nathan Watson :  “It’s been a hard season, but to come away with back-to-back French Beach Race titles is amazing. It’s a credit to the team, they worked so hard to get this result. It’s me out on the track but it really is a team effort, for sure. Naturally, I wanted to win the championship with victory here today, but the cards didn’t fall my way. Between the nature of the track and then the stop-and-go penalty, things were against me. I felt like the track was maybe too fast for me and I needed more corners to slow the early pace down. I hold my hands up about the start, I simply got my timing a little wrong with the bungy being released. I went a little too early. One minute was a tough penalty, especially as I never gained anything and exited the first corner in 12th. But it is what it is. Overall, I’m pleased with the season as a whole. I think that myself and Camille showed we’re two of the strongest guys out there and our bikes never missed a beat. Thanks to KTM and the team, we’ll celebrate this title for sure!”

    Fabio Farioli - KTM Enduro Team Manager :  “We are really happy to have taken a second consecutive French Beach Race Championship title. Nathan enjoyed great results throughout the series and he had a very mature approach; he pushed when it made sense and also remained consistent to reach the podium at every event. Of course, our goal at the Enduropale du Touquet was to fight for the victory and while we didn’t quite achieve that, Nathan had a good race to secure the title with Camille just missing the podium in fourth. We once again learned a lot and we will aim to come back stronger next year to fight for the top of the podium. Overall we are happy – our riders enjoyed strong performances aboard the KTM 450 SX-F throughout the series and to earn the French Beach Race Championship title again is something we are proud of. The series is growing in interest with a lot of spectators and riders taking part and it is something we are happy to be part of.”

    Held within the upcoming Merzouga Rally on May 24 to 29, the second edition of the KTM ULTIMATE RACE will see 12 KTM ADVENTURE riders from Europe, South Africa, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand race aboard equally prepared KTM 790 ADVENTURE R RALLY machines. A six-day-long challenge of more than 1,000km, the KTM ULTIMATE RACE 2020 will be a true test for each participant’s riding skills as well as their ability to navigate their way across the Moroccan dunes.

    The 12 hardcore and fearless members of the global KTM ADVENTURE community who have topped their respective KTM ADVENTURE RALLY qualifiers to secure their spot at the KTM ULTIMATE RACE 2020 are:

    • Simon Arthur
    • Graham Cheney
    • Iker Iturregi
    • Andrej Crnkovic
    • Cayle Dormehl
    • Keegan Eich
    • Wes Van Nieuwenhuise
    • Brendan Crow
    • Wayne Hodder
    • Wendell Maki
    • Mark Dando
    • Matthew Kneesch
    The KTM ULTIMATE RACE is a special category at the Merzouga Rally, very similar to the main event and ridden mostly on the same routes. All KTM ULTIMATE RACE participants will face a grueling six-day-long race from the dusty trails to the dunes of Morocco.

    Each competitor will have access to a specially prepared KTM 790 ADVENTURE R RALLY machine, which will be equipped with a host of KTM PowerParts along with a roadbook to help them navigate through the desert. All KTM ULTIMATE RACE participants will be treated like KTM Factory riders, supported on site with a truck and a team of mechanics to help out with parts and tools or with maintaining the bike after a tough race day.

    Along with this unique and exclusive prize, competitors will be given a fantastic opportunity to be coached by some of the world’s finest offroad riders. Chris Birch and Quinn Cody will be present to provide their close guidance and tutelage, while actively supporting these riders in every aspect of how to manage this challenge.

    Featuring more than 1,000km of offroad riding and navigating in the heart of Morocco, the upcoming Merzouga Rally will take place on May 24/29, 2020.

    Hubert Trunkenpolz (CMO KTM AG) :  “Allowing KTM to engage directly with the flourishing global Travel community, the KTM ADVENTURE RALLIES and the KTM ULTIMATE RACE perfectly demonstrate that the READY TO RACE spirit is alive and strong within all KTM riders. Following a massively successful first edition last year, we are glad to see 12 selected riders from around the world progress through the KTM ADVENTURE RALLIES to secure a spot at the KTM ULTIMATE RACE 2020 in Morocco. It is important to point out that these are not Factory riders, but normal KTM ADVENTURE customers who won their qualifiers at a regional KTM ADVENTURE RALLY to get this unique opportunity to race an acclaimed multi-stage rally aboard a KTM 790 ADVENTURE R RALLY. I want to congratulate these 12 riders for earning their spot and I will be looking forward to following their race progress at the KTM ULTIMATE RACE in May.”

    Unveiled: New KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION set to stun rivals on and off the track

    Profil anzeigen
    With the launch of the 2020 AMA Supercross season taking place on January 4 at Anaheim in California, the spotlight will focus on the form of the #1 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION race machine steered by reigning champion Cooper Webb. While thousands of fans will be marveling at the skills of the 24-year-old, riders around the globe can try to imitate the form of their racing heroes thanks to the sharp performance of the new KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    With Cooper Webb crowned the 2019 AMA Supercross Champion, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION has become one of the most prolific and successful race motorcycles in recent history. Developed with the highest out-of-the-box race performance in mind, the latest version of the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION production model enjoys a wide array of special, performance-enhancing features as standard.

    On the technical side, an Akrapovič slip-on silencer filters the power of the engine and features several upgrades compared to the stock unit. KTM factory wheels will be able to cope with the biggest of triple jumps, while a works floating front disc will ensure maximum stopping power for the next switchback turn.

    The front brake disc guard will protect the premium components from any roost or rocks. Riders and racers can feel extra confident and comfortable thanks to the Factory Selle Dalla Valle seat and the front fork start device – as used by the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing crew – will assist in the pursuit of that essential holeshot.

    The Factory ‘look’ of the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION is sharpened with works triple clamps anodized in orange, an orange-painted frame, a composite skid plate, an orange rear sprocket and the Hinson clutch cover. Lastly, 2020 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing graphics add that desirable livery that makes the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION standout in any Motocross or Supercross track.

    Joachim Sauer - KTM Senior Product Manager Offroad :  “Once more, our fantastic connection between race team and R&D at the factory in Austria have produced a premium package in the 2020 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. This is as close as it gets to the motorcycle that Cooper will be using on tracks in the United States. It’s a source of great pride for us at KTM that we are able to offer this special model. Our KTM 450 SX-F has evolved to be one of the best Motocross motorcycles on the market and it’s the ideal flagship for our SX line-up. The 2020 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION is something that will be sought after by Motocross and Supercross riders and KTM fans around the globe.”

    The new KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION will be available at authorized KTM dealers internationally from January 2020. For more information on pricing and availability, please contact your local KTM dealer.

    KTM X-Bow GTX & GT2 to be launched this year: manufactured in Graz, available in autumn!

    Profil anzeigen
    Following enthusiastic reactions to KTM Sportcar GmbH’s announcement that they, with the KTM X-BOW GT2, wanted to enter the SRO’s new GT2 class as third manufacturer, further details on KTM’s latest lightweight sports car are now available. The racing car, developed together with Reiter Engineering, is being manufactured in the GT2 version, and also a basic KTM X-BOW GTX model for a wide range of GT racing series, (both long-distance and sprint racing). The models are now being introduced onto the market and will be available direct from the KTM Sportcar GmbH or their nominated partners. Pre-sales are to begin immediately, and the prices are now established. KTM board member Hubert Trunkenpolz:  “We took a close look at the competitive environment, and thanks to our experience in designing lightweight vehicles, we were able to make several cost optimizations. This made it possible to come up with an extremely interesting price – 294,000 euros (net) for the KTM X-BOW GT2 and 230,000 euros (net) for the KTM X-BOW GTX. Here, it is important to bear in mind that these vehicles have a power-to-weight ratio that is normally only available in the supercar segment. At the same time, the car sets absolute standards in matters of efficiency, and perhaps most importantly, also safety. It is also sensational news that, given the successful homologation of our car by the SRO, makes it eligible to start in the absolute top league of GT racing, the ‘GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup’. That makes us particularly happy.” Michael Wölfling, General Manager of KTM Sportcar GmbH adds:  “With a vehicle weight of around 1,000 kg and an output of over 500hp (GTX) and 600hp (GT2) respectively, we don’t have to shy away from comparisons. Thanks to the light weight of the car and of the efficient, state-of-the-art Audi 5-cylinder engine, this means minimal abrasive wear. Further to that, our safety concept combines the best of both worlds. On the one hand, we have a homologated GT roll cage, and on the other, also a homologated monocoque. We will also offer the so-called “Advanced Seat’, which is available on request and offers even more comfort. We have also modified the canopy and the roll cage to allow for more headroom.” The new KTM X-BOW GTX and the KTM X-BOW GT2 have now become very big cars. With 2.850 mm, they have the longest wheelbases in the GT segment. And with a total length of 4.700 mm and a width of 2.040 mm, the external dimensions also do justice to KISKA’s spectacular design and the vehicle’s technological sophistication. Pre-orders are now being accepted, and deliveries of the first 25 vehicles (GTX and GT2) are planned for autumn this year.

    Manuel Lettenbichler crowned 2019 WESS Enduro World Champion!

    Profil anzeigen
    In what turned out to be a thrilling closure to the WESS Enduro World Championship season, the GetzenRodeo tested all riders with one of the toughest courses seen in this year’s series. Beginning with a two-hour qualifier, which decided the 20 riders who would go through to the afternoon’s final, it ended with a brutal 80 minutes plus one lap extreme main race. Lettenbichler’s qualifying win cemented his name in the history books as it secured the KTM-ace the WESS title.

    With nothing to lose and his home-crowd behind him, Lettenbichler delivered a winning performance for the main race to stamp his authority as the newly crowned WESS Enduro World Champion. The German racer was only once challenged for the lead by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing star Taddy Blazusiak, who stormed through the field to finish with a podium third at the event and fourth in the standings. Lettenbichler reached the finish line after completing the gruelling final Red Bull X-Loop visibly exhausted and emotional as celebrations began for his incredible championship winning season.

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jonny Walker finished the event in sixth position aboard his KTM 300 EXC TPI to confirm third place in the overall championship standings following a 2019 series that tested the riders’ abilities across a number of different enduro disciplines. In the quest to highlight the most complete enduro rider, the 2019 WESS Enduro World Championship included famous races such as the classic Trèfle Lozérien, the world-renowned ErzbergRodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble, the incredibly tough Red Bull Romaniacs, as well as the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country race. In addition to the GetzenRodeo, Lettenbichler won the Red Bull Romaniacs event whilst also taking a number of podium finishes during the season. A pivotal moment for the 21-year-old was perhaps his second-place result at Hawkstone Park aboard his KTM 350 EXC-F, despite his ‘enduro expertise’ and preference being in the hard enduro discipline.

    Manuel Lettenbichler:   “I’m over the moon, I can’t describe it. To be honest I nearly cried on the podium. It was such a long, tough race today and it’s been such a long season. To finish the year with a first place in front of my home fans would have been amazing, but to win the championship as well is unbelievable. I’m on top of the world right now. My plan for today in both races was to get away well and try to control the race from the front. I was a little nervous in this morning’s race but thankfully it all went to plan. I was honestly exhausted in this afternoon’s race – I couldn’t have given any more. When Taddy passed me, I knew I had to dig deep and carry on and thankfully I managed to get past him again and make it to the finish. The fans have been amazing too– I hope they enjoyed the race as much as I did.”

    Robert Jonas (Vice President Motorsports Offroad):   “We’d like to say a huge congratulations to Manuel on becoming the WESS Enduro World Champion. Manuel has shown maturity beyond his years in his racing, as well as how adaptable he is as a rider throughout the season with his impressive consistency. We could see in 2018 that he would be strong again this year and thanks to his talent, hard work, the guidance from his father Andreas, as well as the support from KTM, Manuel has been able to put everything together to win this title. I think a highlight for him was taking a second-place podium finish at Hawkstone Park, which was perhaps not the type of event he expected to enjoy such strong results at, but this just shows how versatile he is as a rider. Overall, it’s been fantastic to see the WESS Enduro World Championship grow this year with such a huge interest both at the races and in terms of viewing figures – it’s an extremely dynamic, interesting and competitive championship that challenges riders with its different types of events and we are very proud to be part of it.”
