After its successful race debut at the San Marino GP with wildcard rider Dani Pedrosa, KTM has brought its new carbon fibre chassis to Japan for its factory riders Brad Binder and Jack Miller.
Improved Rear Grip
The new carbon fibre chassis has proven to offer better rear grip on KTM’s RC16. This improvement has been crucial for the riders when it comes to achieving optimal performance on the track.
