Every week they consistently have 5-6 of the top ten in the 450 class cruising the track.
The week MM25 won his first race that looked like a scripted game plan to me. And if you have half of the top ten on the same brand, thats going to get harder and harder to compete with if you on a Japanese bike.
And I'm guessing The Man is the Coach of the players in this game.
That race looked like a training day run for those guys.

Context is a wonderful thing, perhaps the non KTM riders are injured or coming off injuries ....

Can you explain their lack of results in the 250 class then?

Presuming Coop or Marv wins this title.....this will be the 5th season in a row a euro brand has won a SX championship. SIX years since the once dominant Japanese have finished on top for a SX Championship.

"The Man" needs to do something with the 250 class then because they're getting killed by green bikes.

I think you mean it'll be the 5th season in a row a non-Japanese brand has won the SX title.

The management in Mattighofen is more passionate about winning championships and less about making billions of yen.

How many 450 mains have had 5, and especially 6, guys on a KTM? How many times have more than 4 been in the top 10 this season?

|

3/31/2019 8:14 PM

They have a fantastic recruiting team and have some of the best 450 riders on contract.

3/31/2019 8:18 PM

not to good outdoors the last few years...and the 250 class?

Hmmm. 200 hrs on a rebuild top end on a 450. Yep junk??. Try that on a jap bike

Why do people take this personal? They currently have a small but significant edge which is huge at this level. The 450 especially, it is simply a weapon of choice currently. One of the big 4 needs to swallow their pride, buy one, scan the frame and manufacture their own version of a steel framed KTM! A 350 also, and some new 2 strokes, like seriously, get with the program, why give all that market away to KTM without a fight?

They are dominating. No question. Watch what happens as they dump copious amounts of money into Motogp like the other manufacturers do. You won't notice it today, tomorrow or the next day but give it a few years and look back. Mark my words.

Add Anderson back in there and then they got 7 top ten riders. Its going to be a force to reckon with. Riders want to be on 450s in those teams.
