Will KTM convince Jorge Martin?

Jorge Martin wants to sit on a factory motorcycle in the 2025 season, but because at Ducati they are still choosing between him, Marco Marquez and Eneo Bastianini for a place in the factory team, Austrian KTM sensed an opportunity, and the Spaniard, the leader in points this year's MotoGP season, offered a tempting contract, which, according to some information, also contains a sponsorship contract with the manufacturer of energy drinks Red Bull.

Although Martin is having one of the best seasons in MotoGP this year, it may not be enough to beat Marquez in the fight for a seat in the factory team, who as an eight-time world champion is very tempting for the Italian manufacturer in terms of media attention.

In the event that Ducati overlooks Martin again this year, as it happened last year, the Spaniard's path should lead to Aprilia, where it is increasingly likely that Aleix Espargaro will end his cooperation, but colleagues at the Spanish Marca report that he could find himself also at KTM, with which he successfully competed in the Moto2 class.

Martin was also supposed to make his debut in the MotoGP class with KTM, but he decided to go the other way, as the Austrian motorcycle was not among the best at the time, which is no longer the case this season. On top of the very competitive motorcycle, KTM is said to have offered Martin a lucrative sponsorship contract with Red Bull, which would provide a higher salary than he would have received at Aprilia, as the cherry on top of the cake.
