KTM RC16_1

This Austrian company’s MotoGP race bike will make its race debut in 2017 along with the showrooms version with prices starting from Euro140,000.

The RC16 draws some serious inspiration from the Honda RC213V, with its whale-shark air intake design, underbraced swingarm, 90° V4 engine with a “screamer” piston firing order. There are of course obvious differences, with the KTM RC16 having steel trellis frame, WP suspension pieces, and 17″ wheels.


Rider, Alex Hofmann took the reins of the KTM RC16 at its three-day shakedown test at the Red Bull Ring, but soon development duties will be handed to MotoGP rider Mika Kallio, with a second test that is scheduled for this year.
