New clothes for HMC KTM

AMA Superbike Championship team, HMC KTM, have been given a makeover. For the Road America round of the AMA series in Elkhart Lake last weekend the RC8 R Superbikes of Chris Fillmore and Taylor Knapp enjoyed a fresh coat of paint.

The new ‘skin’ fits the revamped look of orange and blue that KTM has also adopted for all their official off-road teams this season. KTM/HMC Team Manager Mitch Hansen said: “Our team is stationed in Cato, Wisconsin and Road America is our home race, just round two of the championship after we started in Daytona in March. We have been working a lot on the RC8 R Superbikes, so a new paint scheme seemed appropriate. Internally, the new look has been received with enthusiasm. We hope the spectators and fans will like it as well. “
