MotoGP: KTM unveil factory and Tech3 machines
KTM have unveiled their 2022 machines and riders in a presentation.
KTM have unveiled their 2022 factory and Tech3 machines ahead of the 2022 season. Although unchanged the liveries continue to strike and show off the classic KTM colours with the iconic Red Bull KTM paint scheme making up the factory bike and the bright orange Tech3 machine making a return.
In 2021 KTM had a rollercoaster season comprising of victories and some tough results as the brand failed to improve on a stellar 2021 season with both Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira. 2021 highlights include Binder’s daring victory in the wet Austrian Grand Prix on slick tyres and Oliveira’s win at Catalunya.
In 2022 they are aiming for a stronger season with new team manager Francesco Guidotti taking the place of Mike Leitner, the ex-Pramac boss being hired with the aim of winning more races for the team.
Over in Tech3 both Remy Gardner and Raul Fernandez have been unveiled as MotoGP riders for the first time, the Moto2 world champion and runner up have been internally promoted into the Tech3 team and will be looking to pick up where Iker Lecuona and Danilo Petrucci left off, judging from history Raul is expected to adapt incredibly quickly whilst Remy may need a little more time to adapt, however once both riders are up to speed both are unstoppable as previously shown.
