Anybody know why he decided to switch? I’m a big KTM fan and Reed fan, just curious why he decided to make switch.

He's a completionist.

KTM was the only brand he has not raced in SX, he has ridden every other brand, given this is his final year in SX then that is why.

Current rides: 2020 CRF450RWE and 2019 TC300
Occasional ride for VMX: 1985 CR500RF
Adventure/Road bike: CRF1000L

I admit unless he is just doing it to say he has ridden every brand this is a little confusing.

If he is going to ride a bike for the season I would have thought he would have picked the one he liked best BEFORE the season started.

I have no idea but i would suppose its what his sponsors wanted him to do. Follow the $$$. Maybe
Honda money dried up, then why not ride ktm? Its a better bike and you save money on pipes.

He got pissy running his white Honda when they wouldn't support him so now he's running a black KTM to see if that catches their attention whistling

He was factory Honda on two two.
And there #1 Honda rider plus the main Honda title contender..

And Didn't mountain motorsports switch to KTM..? Might have some thing to do with it.

Plus.. Husky and KTM are the same bike.. who the f*ck cares hahaha

Because he can and because he wanted too. Mountain Motorsports has KTMs as well – and he must like it better.

If this is the case then I guess we'll see him next year on a Gas Gas.

Podium last season and still could this season.

The crazy thing is is that he's notorious for being super picky with settings and trying to get the bike "just right" so he does all these first rounds on the Honda and finally seems to start getting more comfortable and then ups and changes? Guarantee if he has issues if the season starts up again it'll be bike setup related.

I love moto, I think cr22 is great.

I don't like the long, drawn-out, convoluted retirement plan, as it is merely a publicity stunt.

Hmm, plastics look pretty black to me in the videos and pictures... I'm not hating on the guy, just having some light-hearted fun. As someone else mentioned, why he would spend half a season on 1 brand to get all his settings right and then change seems odd to me.

But hey, it's his money and his time so he can do what the hell he wants cool

Has Hanny raced a Honda? Pretty sure he's done every other brand. YOT, Red Bull KTM, PC, and didn't he do privateer stints on a Husky 250 and Suzuki 450?
