KTM Philippines presented its first sponsored rider to the prestigious KTM RC Cup Asia, 18-year old racing wunderkind Ralph Kenneth Torres, at the 11th InsideRACING Bike Festival and Trade Show —the biggest gathering of motorcycle manufacturers and enthusiasts held at the World Trade Center last March 24-26, 2017.

Torres began his racing career in 2006. With over a decade’s experience on the track, he has bagged numerous trophies both locally and internationally, among them: the 2015 MotoIR race winner; 2013 Golden Wheel Award Scooter Champion; 2012 IRGP Scooter Champion; 2010 115cc Underbone King Overall Champion; and the 160cc Scooter Class Overall Champion. These achievements have thus led him to become the official KTM Philippines-sponsored rider, carrying the Philippine flag in this and other future races.

Also showcased during InsideRACING Bike Festival and Trade Show was KTM’s impressive line of high-powered motorcycles, including KTM RC 390 which will serve as Torres’ official racing bike at the challenging Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia this March to November 2017, and the KTM 200 Duke. This ultimate road bike is powered by an ultra-compact, water-cooled, four-stroke engine, which KTM is now offering at only 147 thousand pesos.
