Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro have helped unveil KTM's official Red Bull MotoGP livery for the 2017 season and were joined by the factory’s new Moto2 and Moto3 squads.
Austrian factory KTM steps up to the premier-class to take on Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, Suzuki and Aprilia, having made its grand prix debut in the former 125cc category in 2003.
KTM rose to success when it clinched its first riders’ title in the new era of four-stroke Moto3 era in 2012 and has gone on to take four of the past five Moto3 world titles overall.
The MotoGP project was publicly confirmed in September 2014, with the RC16 making its track debut just over a year later.
KTM, which won last year's Moto3 title with Brad Binder, are also launching a Moto2 project this season, meaning they will be the only manufacturer competing in all three grand prix classes.
