The Hottest Bikes of 2018 at EICMA
With steaming hangovers from a night of debauchery in Milan (thanks Tom), we rolled into the EICMA show feeling like a pair of Honda Deauvilles on a superbike grid. We needn’t have worried though, as the world’s largest moto-only show didn’t disappoint – a blend of fresh lines, wiz-bang... Read more

Another week, another launch, and this time it’s the turn of Baron von Tumble to offer musings on KTM’s 1290 Super Adventure S and 1090 Adventure. Hopefully by now you will have clocked the 1290 R in Peru, and its sister model is more of an everyday, techno-laden Tarmac... Read more
Gallery: 2017 Red Bull KTM RC16
Sometimes all you need is a gallery of images to remedy another torrid Monday, so how about KTM’s 2017 RC16 shot by the insanely talented Sebas Romero? Launched today, just down the road from its factory in Mattighofen, KTM unveiled 2017’s colours and already look set to win this... Read more
Video: EICMA Highlights

Brad Binder: “Racing bikes, you get more pussy than anyone”
MotoGP is brewing nicely in 2016: new race winners, records being smashed left, right and centre, entertainment throughout all classes and a genuine British resurgence. But Moto3, once again, provided the closest, most enthralling fairing-bashing at Silverstone and factory KTM pilot, Brad Binder claimed his fourth victory of the... Read more
What can we expect from KTM in MotoGP?
There I was, sitting in the hotel lobby, waiting for the shuttle to Losail circuit before qualifying and wondering how I was going to survive another day without alcohol in Qatar. Thoughts of KTM’s MotoGP project also meandered though my mind as, moments earlier, I was told that Bradley... Read more
KTM + WP announce Moto2 Project
Months after its RC16 MotoGP weapon encountered public eyes, KTM has announced a joint venture between the orange factory and WP Performance Systems (both of whom are owned by Cross Industries AG) with an all-new Moto2 project that looks rather factory.

Video: Aprilia RS125 v KTM RC125
This 125cc skirmish was, without doubt, one of the most entertaining motorcycle-based days we’ve both encountered. Hopefully you’ve perused the prose, now it’s time for video format. A trip to Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip TT roads highlighted just how rapid the Aprilia RS125 was – but also how... Read more
KTM MX Experience
Anyone who has attempted motocross will know it’s the toughest, most brutal sport on earth. The blend of physical (and mental) exertion required is unrivalled, and only a bout with Tyson will be more painful the morning after. But it’s also immense fun regardless of experience, with fundamental bike... Read more
Teenage Kicks: KTM RC390 Cup

Riding Jack Miller’s Factory Moto3 KTM
Today is not a normal day. Yesterday was not a normal day either after engaging in carry-on combat with Benidorm-bound tourists on an averagely mediocre flight from London Gatwick. Needless to say I persevered in my avoidance of the Spanish strain of Ebola, and my trusty EasyJet flying machine navigated...
