KTM becomes the first of the factory teams to unveil its 2022 MotoGP race livery, plus the satellite Tech3 colours, during a virtual launch starting at 10am CET (9am UK) today.

Watch the launch live below:

KTM followed up its opening three MotoGP wins in 2020 with two more victories last season, but wasn't a consistent challenger at the front during its debut year without access to technical concessions.

While the factory team's rider line-up of Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira is unchanged for a second season, Francesco Guidotti is taking over from Mike Leitner as team manager.

The changes continue at Tech3 where Moto2 champion Remy Gardner and title runner-up Raul Fernandez replace Danilo Petrucci and Iker Lecuona.

KTM's RC16 is the only bike on the grid to use a steel trellis frame (rather than aluminium) and in-house WP suspension (rather than Ohlins).

As rookies, the Tech3 riders will take to the track for the first time in 2022 at the Sepang Shakedown test from January 31 - February 2.

The Red Bull team will join them during the following Official test from February 5-6.
