Red Bull Rookies goes four-stroke for 2013

New four-stroke Moto3 KTMs for 2013 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
The 2013 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup will see the latest generation of rising stars doing battle on four-stroke KTM machinery.

Created as a twin to KTM's 2013 factory Moto3 machine, the Rookies KTM 250 RBR (pictured) should perfectly prepare riders for the step into grand prix racing.

Graduating Rookies have firmly established themselves in grand prix with the likes of Danny Kent, Luis Salom, Jakub Kornfeil and Arthur Sissis fighting for glory every weekend.

Ex Rookies Cup Champion Johann Zarco also recorded four pole positions and eleven podiums - including a win - in the 125 GP category before stepping up to Moto2 for 2012.

The competition to follow in their footsteps has never been hotter with Florian Alt, Scott Deroue and Phillip Oettl leading this year's charge with five races remaining.

The online application system is open for the 2013 Cup

Sad that the strokers are disappearing off the face of the racing earth. After watching the start of the Motostar race at Oulton the other week, I realised how big a loss the tiddlers will be. Such a great sound and a lovely smell with it. The Moto3 bike that was in the race sounded like a flat wet fart in comparison.

to the gentlemen who is new to motorcycling. the sound, the smell, the feel, the spirit of the two stroke is what makes it incredible. yes, the power to weight is awesome. yes, the maintenance or lack of it is awesome. replacing a piston ring and crank seals instead of doing cams, buckets, valve springs, shims, etc every weekend is amazing. but truly, it is harder to ride, to keep it on the pipe, to keep it on song, and to understand how the pipe hits when there's no powervalve, etc.. it's incredible and to me it's the only way to really experience a motorcycle. i may be a 'young fart' at 29 years, but i have old fart mentality when it comes to motorcycles and gp racing. proud 2stroke owner
