Fancy buy­ing your own RC16?

KTM are ru­moured to be plan­ning a cus­tomer ver­sion of the new Mo­togp ma­chine, as they move away from the tra­di­tional road-ori­en­tated sports­bike route.

See­ing con­tin­u­ing new reg­u­la­tions such as Euro 4 and Euro 5 (set to be in­tro­duced in 2020) as too re­stric­tive to con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment of the class, KTM are also al­legedly set to of­fer up to 100 cus­tomer ver­sions of the bike for pub­lic sale.

Es­ti­mated to cost €100-€150,000, the bikes will be aimed at track-day cus­tomers and not rac­ers, with KTM sup­pos­edly not pur­su­ing ho­molo­ga­tion to race the ma­chines in su­per­bike rac­ing, much like Honda with the RC213V-S.
