KTM CUP Season 1 in 2022-23 generated an unprecedented wave of excitement, attracting over 1,000 racers across India who embraced the challenge both on the circuit and online. It was a testament to KTM’s commitment to further develop the burgeoning racing spirit in India.

The 3 champions from KTM CUP season 1 got to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with KTM experts at the Slovakia Ring and interact with KTM Factory racing athletes.

In Season 2, the KTM CUP introduces three distinct categories: PROS, WOMEN, AND AMATEURS. This will give a common ground for participants since the skill levels differ for each category.

Definition of the Categories:

Pros – KTM CUP Season 1 participants (excluding the top 3 winners), FMSCI License Holders / INMRC Racers from the last 3 years, and one-make championship participants.
Amateurs – All other male KTM owners, any male motorcycle enthusiasts
Women – All other female KTM owners, any female motorcycle enthusiasts* (*entry restricted to the City round for non-owners, while participants must be KTM owners for the Qualifying/Finale rounds)
The top 3 winners of the KTM CUP Season 2 will win an exclusive chance for training with MotoGP™ legends and former Grand Prix winners at the Red Bull Ring in Salzburg, Austria. One lucky winner will also get a chance to intern with Powerdrift.
We invite all motorcycle enthusiasts to join us on this journey as we rev up the engines for another thrilling season of the KTM CUP. Whether you’re a seasoned professional, a passionate amateur, or an eager spectator, there’s something for everyone in this adrenaline-fuelled spectacle.
