Yep, you read that right, KTM has put up for grabs a pair of its factory-prepared MotoGP machines from the 2019 season in an incredibly rare opportunity, if your pockets are deep enough that is...
The pair of 2019 KTM RC16s are up for sale by KTM as part of an ultra-exclusive MotoGP package.
The motorcycle marked an important step forward for the factory in their young Grand Prix project, now just four years in existence. Pol Espargaro used the bike to qualify on the front row of the start grid at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli and logged eight top-ten finishes and 100 FIM World Championship points while riding the RC16s. Included in the rather eye-watering price of €288,000 (that is $519,936.48 in NZ dollars going by the current exchange rate) is a full set of Pol Espargaro’s race leathers, a signed Espargaro race helmet and a VIP MotoGP Event Pack for any 2021 event (subject to circuit availability).
The experience also includes a behind-the-scenes tour, a meet-and-greet with the MotoGP riders and a full set of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team wear, weekend access to the Red Bull Energy Station unit with full catering and refreshment options.
The bike itself is a serious bit of kit.
Tipping the scales at just 157kg and producing in excess of 265hp from its 1000cc V4, the 2019 KTM RC16 can hurtle towards a top speed listed as over 340km/h.
KTM isn't just selling the bikes to just anyone, however, with the company asking for "serious enquiries" to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org where the company will compile a list of potential buyers before deciding who the lucky new owners will be.
If that's not exclusive we don't know what is!
