Tech 3 KTM unveil the most orange MotoGP motorcycle in history!

The new 2021 MotoGP contender from Tech 3 KTM has been revealed and it looks awesome – so long as you like orange!

TECH 3 KTM has just pulled the wraps off its satellite MotoGP challenger for 2021 with the eye-catching factory-backed RC16.

2021 is a big year for Hervé Poncharal’s French squad as it no doubt looks to build on a successful 2020. The team scored its first of two victories in MotoGP last year, courtesy of Miguel Olivera at the Red Bull Ring. For 2021 they will no doubt have more wins on the radar.

With Olivera now moving off to join the factory KTM team, Danilo Petrucci is stepping in and is joined by MotoGP rookie Iker Lecuona who starts his second full season with the team.

Speaking of the team’s chances this season, Tech 3 founder Poncharal said:

“After an incredible 2020 season which saw Tech3 KTM winning two races, we can’t wait to start 2021," Poncharal said. "It’s going to be a very special season for all of us at Tech3 KTM Factory Racing because we now know that with the KTM RC16 we have the weapon to fight for pole positions and to fight for podiums and victories.

"We will welcome a new rider with a lot of experience: Danilo is a super charming guy, he is so impatient, so focused, and motivated to start the season with testing in Qatar. Iker remains with us. We have a lot of trust and expectations in him. He is not a rookie anymore and this is the time for him to deliver.

"For me as a team owner, I have to say that the first two years with KTM were like a dream. The improvements from 2019 to 2020 were unbelievable and honestly, even though I was trusting KTM to make a big step, the step they made was something I was not expecting. As I said before, to win two races already in year two is an incredible achievement.

"We are a happy team, everybody is very impatient to start the 2021 season but before we go to Qatar, there is a great moment for KTM and Tech3 to happen, which is this presentation. We will be wearing the full KTM factory colors, which is a great recognition for our partnership but also a lot of weight on our shoulders to keep pushing even more.

"We know we represent the brand and we know how important a MotoGP bike with the full factory colors is for everyone. Thanks to all those who follow and supports us."
