Can you actually expect to beat Honda and Yamaha with an under-powered MotoGP engine running White Power suspension all tucked inside a, ahem, steel trellis frame? KTM is going all out to prove conventional wisdom wrong.

Their 2017 effort was introduced this week.

Austrian bike, Austrian sponsor and Austrian suspension will take on KTM’s most-hated rival–Honda and HRC –in MotoGP.

Even though the RC16 seems more like a bike and technology that you’d see racing MotoGP in say, 2004, KTM say that their aim is to win the MotoGP title “very soon”.
