Pedro Acosta’s Unique Riding Style: The Secret Behind His MotoGP Success, Says KTM’s Technical Boss



KTM's technical leader highlights that Pedro Acosta stands out due to "two aspects" of his approach to riding.

KTM MotoGP's technical leader, Sebastian Risse, has expressed admiration, though he wasn't taken aback, by the remarkable early achievements of newcomer Pedro Acosta in the top tier.

The previous Moto3 winner and current Moto2 titleholder has secured a spot in the top three in his recent three races, achieving podium finishes in the Portimao and COTA Grand Prix before claiming second place in the Jerez Sprint.

Currently competing on a Tech3 team GASGAS-branded RC16, young racer Acosta is in fourth place in the world championship standings, leading as the premier ‘KTM’ competitor.

"Truthfully, it doesn't shock me, but it does leave me extremely impressed," Risse expressed to

"In the other sessions, it's evident how rapidly this person is picking up new skills. How flexible he is."

"However, when it comes to other racers, the transition to MotoGP presents a unique challenge. The outcome can vary significantly."

"Typically, it's necessary to compel a newcomer to remain composed, maintain the motorcycle's configuration without flipping it over, and focus on acquiring knowledge."

Pedro stands in contrast, feeling incredibly satisfied with his bicycle and his possessions.

"He's highly motivated to achieve the utmost and concentrates on his capabilities before addressing the technical aspects. His demeanor is tranquil and he possesses a strong sense of self-assurance."

Regarding the unique qualities Acosta exhibits on the race track, Risse shared insights:

His approach is distinctly unique. He tends to decelerate at the last possible moment. Yet, he remains composed and in full control. When it comes to halting his motorcycle, he doesn't require one that excels in braking performance.

"Next, he demonstrates a distinctive technique in maneuvering the bicycle with his body movements to make turns."

These two characteristics truly set him apart.

"I firmly believe he'll compete for the championship, although it's premature to talk about the timing."

"He requires some patience. It's essential for him to pace himself and truly unlock his complete capabilities in this course. I'm confident that he'll emerge victorious."

Looking more widely at the RC16 project, Risse believes they possess "an extremely powerful, perhaps even the most powerful, engine currently."

They've also addressed the vulnerabilities in last year's aerodynamics while maintaining its strengths.

In contrast to Aprilia, KTM has not achieved victory in either a Sprint or Grand Prix event this year.

However, Risse concurs with the placement of KTM as the second-ranked constructor, trailing only behind Ducati in the standings.

"Currently, it appears that we rank as the second leading producer."

"Our leading racer often ranks as the highest-placed competitor not on a Ducati. However, this implies we must elevate our game to truly challenge the leading Ducatis," he stated.

"We were aware and anticipated that it wouldn't be simple. Everyone is making a great effort. There are highs and lows."

A defining trait of KTM is our ambitious goals. Victory is inevitable for us; it's just a question of when.
