KTM MotoGP Racing Team News 

KTM announced that Brad Binder will remain part of their factory team until at least 2026, showing no urgency on either side to reach an agreement before his current deal runs out.

In two official MotoGP tests, binder, Miller, and Espargaro will unleash the sound of KTM’s RC16 at Sepang to fine-tune it to their needs. 

KTM has long expressed concerns regarding downforce aerodynamics, which has become a more prominent aspect of MotoGP racing.

Brad Binder

Binder made an impressive MotoGP debut last season and earned sixth in the championship standings. He possesses enough talent to be an engaging podium contender on his KTM machine; furthermore, he received full support from his factory team by signing a two-year contract in 2023.

Binder made his mark at the Austrian Grand Prix with an unexpected home track win by making the bold decision to run on wet slicks with five laps left until grip ran out on his RC16. He came within striking distance of leading until that happened.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing welcomes back Jack Miller after one year of competing on Ducati machines. Miller was delighted to return home and finished Portimao P17, proving his adaptation.

Jack Miller

Miller is one of the youngest team members, yet he has made his presence felt in MotoGP quickly. An Australian, Miller is an established podium threat, having placed on four different occasions since beginning his MotoGP career.

Jack was raised on a cattle ranch near Townsville, Australia, where he learned how to ride dirt bikes. Soon after, he moved abroad to compete in the Moto3 world championship and later signed with Caretta Technology Forward Racing in 2012.

During the second Qatar race, Miller almost caused an incident when he got involved in a physical altercation with Joan Mir, nearly running him off track on the back straight. They eventually had a lengthy discussion off-track to resolve their differences.

Mika Kallio

Mika Kallio is one of MotoGP’s most underrated riders. He has proven his worth as an invaluable test rider for Ducati during their development phase for their RC16 bike, helping shape it with valuable feedback from his experience in premier class racing – his best race result being a place finish!

He made his Grand Prix debut for Pramac Ducati, outpacing rookie Niccolo Canepa on his first ride. In 2010, he moved down to the Moto2 class and joined the Marc VDS Racing Team, renewing his contract each year and taking two podium finishes.

Aki Ajo and Michael Bartholemy credit Mika with being instrumental to KTM’s current level, saying without him, “we wouldn’t be at this level.”

Dani Pedrosa

Australian rider Cameron Whittle has made substantial progress after an early struggle in the 2023 MotoGP season. Although he finished P17 at the Sepang test, he remains upbeat about his progress despite only qualifying as P17. Additionally, he looks forward to working alongside new teammate Brad Binder and believes that the KTM R, C16 can compete at its highest levels with time.

His debut podium came in Portugal, followed by second places at Donington Park and Assen before colliding with Gresini Racing’s Marco Simoncelli during a fight for position at Le Mans. Unfortunately, due to a collarbone fracture sustained from this collision, he missed three races and needed to wait until Italy for another win.

Jonas Folger

Jonas Folger is on a mission to prove himself in MotoGP, making his debut this weekend at the Circuit of the Americas as a replacement rider for injured Pol Espargaro in GasGas Tech3 Racing’s GasGas Tech3 squad.

Folger competed in his rookie season of 125cc world championship racing, making waves during his home race in Germany when he challenged Marc Marquez for victory. 

Unfortunately, health concerns forced him out for the rest of the year when it was discovered he had Gilbert’s syndrome, an inherited genetic condition in which the liver is incapable of processing bilirubin correctly and causes a build-up of bilirubin deposits in its system.

Now, he looks set to make an impressionful mark in MotoGP, joining current riders Mika Kallio and Dani Pedrosa aboard their 2023-spec KTM RC16s.
