Update: MotoAmerica KTM RC 390 Cup

One of MotoAmerica’s goals is to groom a new generation of American and international riders for the world stage. In its inaugural season, the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship will feature Superbike, Superstock 1000, Supersport, Superstock 600, and a brand-new spec class open to 14- to 22-year-olds, the KTM RC 390 Cup.

“We think the KTM RC 390 Cup is a great opportunity for both ‬young and new racers who want to be a part of our national ‬championship,” three-time 500cc World Champion and MotoAmerica ‬President Wayne Rainey said. “If something like this was around when I was getting ‬started road racing, I would ‬have pushed really hard to be part of it. We expect to find new talent, and that’s what MotoAmerica ‬needs.”‬

To compete in the KTM RC 390 Cup, you must have been born between 1993 and 2001, and possess an AMA Superstock Limited or Superstock 600 license. Pre-order deadline for 2015 KTM RC 390 Cup motorcycles is March 31. Suggested retail price for one of the track-prepped, 38-horsepower single-cylinder machines is $9,999.

Supporting Rainey’s plan to find and export new talent, KTM will ‬award the 2015 KTM RC 390 Cup champion ‬a unique grand prize: an all-expenses-paid trip to England to participate in round eight of the 2015 KTM British Junior Cup, October 2-4, at the Silverstone Circuit.
