[kropotkin thinks...] - KTM Pull Out Of Moto2 For 2020, Expand In Moto3, Bring Back H

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.

-----------------

Their home Grand Prix is traditionally the place where KTM announce the racing plans, and this weekend's Austrian MotoGP round is no different. There is to be a shakeup in the Moto2 and Moto3 classes, while the Austrian manufacturer has extended its commitment to MotoGP for five more years beyond 2021. KTM will stop as a chassis manufacturer in Moto2, but bring back Husqvarna as a separate team and bike in Moto3.

The least surprising news was KTM signing on for another five years in MotoGP. The Austrian manufacturer signed a contract with Dorna for the next MSMA contract period, which runs from 2022 through 2026. Though the MotoGP project is not quite on schedule for the podiums they were aiming for in their third and fourth years, the progress has been good and investment in MotoGP has been strong.

The bigger news is that KTM are pulling out of Moto2 as a chassis manufacturer from 2020. The Austrian factory have struggled so far in Moto2, while spending a vast amount of resources trying to fix their chassis, which has suffered problems with chatter since the switch from Honda to Triumph engines. KTM have chosen to switch that investment to expand their presence in Moto3.
