Just in time for Christmas, KTM has announced it’s offering punters a chance to get their hands on one of two Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MotoGP RC16 motorcycles from 2018 – used by Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro.
It’s a very rare opportunity to own a very fast piece of motorcycling history – but you’re going to need some serious cash if you’re tempted. The bikes are priced at €250,000 (about £222k) – but thankfully you do get a few goodies thrown in along with the KTM RC16. You’ll get a full set of Pol Espargaró race gear, an autographed helmet from Espargaró – and you will become a member of the Red Bull KTM Factory Team at the 2019 MotoGP round of your choice. That means a meet-and-greet with Red Bull KTM racers Espargaró and Johann Zarco, a paddock tour, a tour of the pit box, a set of Red Bull KTM team gear, plus access to the Red Bull Energy Station for the entire weekend. Pretty cool.
