First Look: KTM's Moto3 entry

KTM testing their 250cc single at Valencia

KTM'S entry for the new 250cc Moto3 class has broken cover at a private test in Valencia.

The above bike will be ridden by Britain's Danny Kent, who lines-up in the three-rider factory Ajo team, alongside Sandro Cortese and Arthur Sissis.

The 250cc single is the Austrian manufacturer's official return to the MotoGP series. The Moto3 engine (shown below) was unveiled back in October in an event at Red Bull's Hanger 7, it was revealed to be incredibly light at a weight of only 23kg.

The Moto3 machine has been developed in-house at KTM, but to adhere to regulations the engine must be made available to other teams, priced at €12,000. German chassis builders Kalex have opted to utilise KTM's single-cylinder engine for its own Moto3 bike.
