He must have gotten tired of riding that orange bone crusher. 

Hes either retiring or should see him on another brand soon.

Beta or Sherco, I’m guessing. 

Maybe even TM, it has all the features of Ktm without the WP. Would be cool to see them mixing it up on the hard enduro scene.

Funny I was just thinking the EXACT same thing with TM 🙂

Sherco may be full already with Cody, Young & Roman

TM doesn’t have the $ to afford him. 
If I had to guess (and it’s a total guess) I’m thinking Beta. They are doing very well with huge growth and should have the budget for him.

Something I'm curious about though is does TM have any pre existing energy drink contracts? I imagine a lot of these dudes are chasing money but if Redbull went with Walker I could almost see him taking a gamble if he feels the bike is capable. I can definitely see him going over to Beta though, I see them rising up in popularity like Sherco has recently.

Just generating some buzz before they announce that he’s on a white or red KTM?

Taddy went to GG without this sort of departure, highly doubt he is just changing colors.

No, TM has no Energy Drink Affiliation. As cool as I think it would be for TM to get Walker I just don’t see it happening. 
Also Beta already has Red Bull riders.
