The AMA and MotoAmerica, the new home of professional road racing in the U.S., has announced the rounds of the MotoAmerica calendar in which the KTM RC390 Cup will compete in. First announced in November 2014, the KTM RC390 Cup is a spec class designed for riders aged 14-22 to race in front of a national (and sometimes international) audience while building their race craft. All riders will compete on identical KTM RC390 Cup bikes. The series serves as a stepping stone to move up through the ranks, with the hope of maybe one day even producing a MotoGP champion.
“The partnership that KTM has created with the AMA and MotoAmerica has provided an opportunity for KTM RC Cup competitors to compete in a professional environment to launch their road-racing careers,” said KTM North America Director of Product Development and Product Marketing John Hinz. “We are excited to offer the RC Cup at key venues across the nation to give more riders a chance to participate in this new and exciting series.”
KTM RC 390 price, availability and purchasing information will be announced shortly by KTM North America Inc.
