Brad Binder sticks with KTM until end of 2026 MotoGP season

Brad Binder has penned a two-year extension to his contract with the KTM Factory Racing team that will keep him at the Austrian manufacturer until the conclusion of the 2026 MotoGP season.

A successful product of KTM’s renowned junior development programme, Binder joined forces with the firm in 2015, going on to win the 2016 Moto3 World Championship the following season before earning his MotoGP promotion by ending the 2019 season as runner-up to Alex Marquez.

Famously scoring KTM’s maiden MotoGP win with a dominant performance in only his third start at Brno in 2020, Binder has since gone on to establish himself as a frequent front runner with four wins (two main, two Sprint) and a top six spot in the overall standings in 2021 and 2022.


Already committed to a long-term deal with KTM to last until 2024, Binder has now extended that furthermore to the end of 2026.

“A massive thank you to KTM and the management for trusting in me and for letting me be involved in this incredible program for a few more years.

“ We are coming very close to what we want to achieve on the track but I cannot say enough good things about the team and my crew. 2015 and those first KTM races feel like a long time ago! 

“But also time passes quickly and we’ve made some special memories. I know there is a lot more to come and cannot wait to build those stories. Thanks again.”

Francesco Guidotti, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager, added: “Brad is a rock of our team and it is great news that he will stay even longer with us. 

“We’ve been building a relationship and a project for a long time now. He brings a winning spirit to our box but also stability and an important understanding of KTM.

“He is always an exciting rider to watch and a fantastic guy to work with. I want to thank him for his belief in us and for how we’ve pushed together to this point so far. There is still so much potential to come.”
