Great move by KTM. They have the resources to build a winning bike, and now they have a great rider to help take them to the winners circle.

yea agree a nice piece of business by them, i had thought he may move to yamaha but with rossi signing on for another two years i guess that was no longer an option.

See ya Bradley. Love ya, but results matter.


I really hope this boosts KTM results. Zarco is taking a risk but I believe they'll put the resources behind him and do everything they can to win races. They're in it to win it.

I think Zarco knows what he's doing, besides KTM has all the money there is, and the best engineering and brain trust in the world. Now they will have two good and highly motivated riders.
Yes I love the old 2 stroke days, but the current era we are watching is the best I have seen, and I go back to the Hailwood,Ago, Read days, watched the rise and evolution of the two stokes, and as far as I'm concerned this new Moto GP is the greatest racing show on earth,,,,, next to dirt Sprint Cars.

I think will be a great move for Zarco, Yamaha factory team are lost and I can't see them digging themselves out any time soon. As long as he is patient he will be good.

Motogp is awesome, but nothing will ever beat Senior TT day when you are at the Isle of Man TT. The excitement and buzz in the air on the day is amazing and the experience of the TT live is like nothing else.
