What do you get when you mix one of the most anticipated small sport bikes with a fledgling racing series? MotoAmerica partnering with KTM USA to bring you the RC Cup.
Using the KTM RC 390 as the basis rocking a 40 hp single cylinder engine from the Duke 390. Partnering with HMC racing for the MotoAmerica series, HMC will run the hospitality and technical support for the series. HMC currently fields the KTM race team in Super Bike.
The 2WAAM take: This is great news for MotoAmerica, the perfect feeder series for young riders to move up in ranks and either to Europe or to keep their talents here at home. Will it be enough to make the series work? Will it be televised for our viewing enjoyment giving these young riders name recognition? Time will tell but both are very important.
