KTM: the first MotoGP factory to renew until 2026

The Austrian factory reached the premier class in early 2017, after winning races in 125cc and 250cc: "We have put this project on a very solid foundation."


The MotoGP World Championship will have the presence of KTM until 2026, the only brand that is both in development competitions and in the World Championship, present in the premier class since 2017.

KTM joined MotoGP in early 2017, after winning races in 125cc and 250cc, in addition to the inaugural Moto3 championship in 2012. In Moto2, over three years, they had 14 victories with current Red Bull KTM riders: Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira.

Currently, KTM is the only brand with a presence from development competitions such as the Northern Talent Cup or the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and in Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP. For a full two years, four RC16s have been improving for the best results in the premier class thanks to Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and KTM Tech3 Racing teams.

"I am very happy to be able to announce this new five-year contract with Dorna. After a few seasons we have put this project on a very solid foundation, so it is a positive step to continue our involvement in MotoGP until 2026," he said this Wednesday Pit Beirer (director of KTM Motorsport), in a statement on the official MotoGP website.

"We are very satisfied with the renewal of KTM because they are not only an incredible partner, but also because they chose the FIM MotoGP World Championship platform as a marketing tool that they consider ideal for their products. This is not just good news for the championship, but also for our sport, thanks to its participation in the three racing categories ", said Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna.
