Above, is the first ever photograph of the 250cc Moto3 bike from KTM at Valencia, the photograph was released on the KTM UK page. The 250cc single cylinder engine marks Austria based KTM‘s official return to the MotoGP series. The Moto3 engine was previously unveiled back in October at an event at the Red Bull Hanger 7, it was revealed to be incredibly light at a weight of only 23kg. The above bike will be ridden by Britain’s Danny Kent, who lines-up in the three-rider factory Ajo team, alongside Sandro Cortese and Arthur Sissis. The Moto3 machine has been developed in-house at KTM, but to adhere to regulations the engine must be made available to other teams, priced at €12,000. German chassis builders Kalex have opted to utilise KTM’s single-cylinder engine for its own Moto3 bike.
