KTM boss attacks Zarco's MotoGP Form
 
KTM boss attacks "simply unacceptable" Johann Zarco MotoGP form

Wow! Harsh words there from the boss.
Zarco was already struggling with form in the latter stages of his stint with Tech3 Yamaha.
Could it really be all down to his mental side?

KTM CEO Stefan Pierer has labelled new signing Johann Zarco's initial performances in 2019 as "simply unacceptable", while suggesting the Frenchman's current MotoGP struggles are "psychological" in nature.
KTM the new Ducati of old
Next they will be looking to send Zarco to the shrink

“It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt”

Stefan Pierer....in 2016 he stated "we are in MotoGP to beat HRC"....yeah sure.


They just have a shit bike right now. Zarco may not be the next Stoner, but he is a 2 time world champ FFS.

Stefan Pierer, needs to grow up, dunderhead Asparagus is in his 3rd season with them, where was he the 1st season 17th in the standings
Zarco has had 4 races on the KTM and has scored 7 points.
Asparagus scored 17 in the whole season.

I bet by the end of the season Zarco will have a lot more than 17 points.

The mere suggestion that the trellis frame may be part of their problem is a taboo subject in the KTM camp. They appear an arrogant bunch that clearly put the bike (and their own pride) before the riders requests.

Pol seems the only one that can do anything with it and that requires him over riding the thing on a knife edge for race distance just to put it somewhere in the top ten. They can tell themselves that their bike is fantastic and only a few 10th's off the pace if it helps them sleep at night but results indicate that the thing is rubbish.

and on what basis? Being competitive in motocross? :D
People accuse HRC of being arrogant, but "at least" they are the most winning team in the history of MotoGP.


It is known that Zarco has said quite openly that he does not like the bike but so what...there's no excuse for KTM's points of view right now IMHO.

This is not unlike the dynamic at Ducati with the old trellis frame that they clung to for so long. I hate falling to old stereotypes - but as someone who is half German (not so different than Austrians in that regard) arrogance is kind of a built-in-the-DNA aspect of the Austrians.

Motocross and Enduro-wise, they have good reason to be prideful. Great bikes. Love my SX-F 450.
