KTM chose to unveil their new bikes at their own home, in Austria, after MotoGP Sepang's test, but they did not offer any live cover for the event.

The austrian team decided to introduce all his bikes, so we had Can Oncu for Moto3, Marco Bezzecchi, Jorge Martin, Philipp Oettl and Brad Binder for Moto2, Miguel Oliveira, Hafizh Syahrin, Johann Zarco and Pol Espargaro for MotoGP. 

In Moto2 and MotoGP, KTM will have two different teams: Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and Red Bull KTM Tech 3. The only thing that is different between this two is that they will be lead from two different guys, having Aki Ajo for Factories and Herve Poncharal for Tech 3 as long as riders should have all factory bikes. 

We did not expect any changes on the livery of the Factory bikes, but of course that was a big wait for the Tech 3 ones, considering they have changed not only from Yamaha to KTM, but also main sponsor, from Monster Energy to Red Bull. 

And so it was: the KTM Tech 3 bikes have a different coloration compared to the past, where we have the classic colours of KTM and the Red Bull's logo well exposed. They look really similar to the car of Toro Rosso in F1, creating an analogy wih Red Bull Racing. It's like KTM Factory bikes are the Red Bull's F1 car and the Tech 3 ones are the Toro Rosso. 

Apart from this, there are a lot of expectations for 2019, having Can Oncu in Moto3, who has already shocked the world with his first win in Valencia at his wild card debut, but especially Brad Binder in Moto2, who is one of the favorities for the world championship. Big wait also for the rookie and Moto3 world champion Jorge Martin and for Marco Bezzecchi, who just want to show everyone that he is fast also with a Moto2. 

On MotoGP side, situation is a little bit more complicated, but the austiran team did great steps forward to improve their bike and be more competitive than last years. There is a lot of work to develop this KTM and the demonstration is the purchase of Daniel Pedrosa as test rider, who could help a lot the squad with his experience.
