KTM entered MotoGP to win, as it has done in virtually every category of racing it has entered, both on-road and off. KTM realizes, of course, that no matter how good your bike is you need talented riders to take a championship.
Johann Zarco (Yamaha) is signed next year to return to the Yamaha Tech 3 MotoGP squad, but KTM CEO Stefan Pierer has his eyes on Zarco for the 2019 season. Zarco has a history with KTM in the lower classes, and with KTM-affiliated Team Manager Aki Ajo. According to Pierer, “This is the only MotoGP rider that I’m seriously considering for 2019.” Pierer also stated “[Zarco] won the Moto2 World Championship for two years with Aki Ajo and won the Red Bull Rookies Cup on a KTM. He knows KTM.”
