The 2021 KTM colors are certainly bright, I like them.

Re: MotoAmerica next year

Ya, both look sweet.  Hard to decide on which is better looking.
I dunno.  
One thing that bugs me a bit, and has, for awhile, is the way certain factory bikes lose their
factory identity.
Last years Yamaha factory bikes come to mind.

With that, to me, the Tech 3 is the better scheme for KTM.

(but then again, I'm not the one getting a check from Red Bull eitherlol).

Yes I much prefer the Tech 3 color scheme.........but like you say, if the Red Bull advertising check was going directly into my bank account, then, well, er, on consideration, the other color scheme does have some good points, in fact, now that I've thought it over, I think I prefer it!........ (Cha-ching!)!

Oh yea, as far as the brake shrouds on the Ducati, I looked around.

Could not find anything difinitive.
But, I noticed they, Ducati were allowed by Dorna 1 change, or advancement, unlike the motor thing,
in aerodynamics this year to their bike.

Until someone shows up and says otherwise, I'm thinking that's what they are. To help with reducing wind drag.

I like this attitude.

I would be this rider.

Maybe a pain, but I have an enthusiasm for 'team' and a love for the machine.

Pre picks for the Motogp League?

It is getting close isn't it.........let us know when the flood gates open for picking our riders.

Here is the line up as I can figure it so far...........if anyone spots any typos or mistakes please let me know.

Thanks for that Allred.  👍
As far as the League.......I'm thinking we at least need to wait for the testing, I believe that is gonna happen, sometime in March.

I prefer the Tech3 scheme, too.

But they really nailed both looks, in that I feel KTM could easily sell both designs on street replicas.

And I tell you guys, even tho some say it's 80% rider, and 20% bike, KTM has proven, in a few ways,
they are a manufacturer to be reckoned with.

Lookin over Allreds list, I thought, a guy could pull a team of 3 riders that would be pretty strong, league wise, and all of em would be on orange.

Just saw this, Honda's satellite teams new color scheme for 2021.  

Is it me, or does LCR motogp2021 look a bit dated?

That is one confusing color scheme!

Must have been designed by a committee

Got that right.  Everything on there but HONDA.

Imho, compared to the 2021 KTMs, fail.

LCR has always been shoestring.

Honda likely sending nothing to them but invoices for parts.

It looks very '70s to me.

You and me both. Who wouldn't want to see a 10th for the Dr.?
It looks as if he will have to switch bikes to do it.

I just looked up the cost for the MOTOGP video pass.
$194.00 - $236.00.
WTH?
