KTM have unveiled their new 2021 rider line ups and liveries.
Following from an incredibly successful 2020 campaign which saw the Austrian factory win three races taking 8 podiums in total, KTM have stepped up their game for 2021. The team have moved 2 x MotoGP race winner and long time KTM rider Miguel Oliveira into the factory team replacing Pol Espargaro.
This move means Oliveira now races with ex-Moto3 and Moto2 teammate Brad Binder in a line up considered by many to be a ‘dream team’, the duo will be aiming for more victories this year in MotoGP and a title attack.
Tech3 have kept the youngster Iker Lecuona and have hired Danilo Petrucci from Ducati, Petrucci slots directly into the Tech3 team and looks to win more races in MotoGP in KTM colours, the Tech3 team is a solid foundation for Petrucci to hone his talent. Lecuona will continue to grow and develop his talent following from an impressive season which was hindered by too many crashes.
