It's funny how everyone thinks the KTM is the bike to have but when riders have options to ride anything they seem to always choose a Jap bike...

Reed and Barcia may be betting on Rozcen not showing up for A1 or at least having a very short season.

Not true, Milsaps like yellow and Chad jelled with it too a few years back. Mookie also rode yellow and don't forget the King of Kings privateer Alessi rode one for a few years...

He has a KTM as well.  He’s riding both, presumably because he’s trying to increase his chances of getting some sort of ride / factory support instead of just deciding that one or the other is destined to happen.

Those weren't privateer rides

Alessi was on a team getting paid

No denying that. Honda's 450 seem to be a favorite among the top pros.

There are always few ktms in SX and local MX. Just because motocross action says they're faster doesn't mean they are. RC used the "tub of lard" and he creamed everyone he went up against. Who cares what they're riding, it doesn't effect any of us. If Honda was paying me more I'd race for them too.

Pretty sure Barcia is getting paid.... Ronnie Stewart and I think it was #75 last year also rode yellow as true privateers... but they do like Honda also.

Getting paid to wear gear or drink a companies piss water isn't the same as being paid to ride

From MXA "It will be Justin Barcia’s first time since his Professional debut in 2009 as a privateer"
