KTM RC4R is equipped with a 250-hp single-cylinder engine producing 40 hp. Bike weight without liquids – 90 kg. Other details are not reported, since the model is still at the finalization stage.

KTM Motorsports Director Pete Beyer said that he is very proud that Dorna Sports and ADAC chose them as a partner of the Nordic Talents Cup, and also expressed confidence that the championship will reveal new talents and create healthy competition.

 The best young pilots from Northern and Central Europe will be selected for the races, respectively. Then they will go to the Red Bull Rookies Cup, and then to the Grand Prix. The first season starts in 2020.
