Project HKR - KTM Supermono



KTM Sepermono - Motoforza fairings - HKR racing team

HKR-Racing stands for:
Henco Christof
Krämer Markus
Rothe Nico


Supermono fairings for this model are from KTM RC8, supplied by Motoforza exclusively to the Austrian KTM factory in Mattighofen since 2008. For the first specification Supermono EVO1 the 2010 season, which appears throughout the series Austrian KTM TNT Cup fairings suffered only minor adjustments. But for EVO3 specification for the season 2012, have been carried out extensive changes. Bodywork were radically narrowed, which contributed to better aerodynamics. The seat-rear part is content of one piece (unlike RC8) for faster installation and greater rigidity. Narrowing the bodywork optically benefit the motorcycle. Beautiful design underlining the nice painting, gold painted frame and sponsor logos.
Below a little bit about the team and the entire racing HKR his "crew". Also useful information on the composition of the motorcycle and motor parameters.

Our aim is not only going racing, it is also about the revival of a nearly lost segment, the Supermono. Check out our Team page to see what this is about and why it is worth thinking about it.





KTM Sepermono - Motoforza fairings - HKR racing team

Grown up on different continents, all three of us have been brought into deepest Innviertel to Mattighofen by the unconditional passion for motorcycles. Where we work in different areas for KTM Sportmotorcycles. Our passion goes far beyond our jobs and so we formed in late 2009 HKR Racing and started to develop a single cylinder race bike, implement it into reality and to go racing with it. Why a single cylinder racing motorcycle?
The special feature is the pairing of a high capacity single cylinder 4 stroke engine with a compact Superbike chassis. Major advantages of this approach are that extremely low weight, excellent handling and low acquisition and maintenance costs compared to a superbike.
The fact that I am an amateur racer I was instantly able to go faster lap times with the Supermono than I've ever done with a superbike. Despite the power differential and the lower top speed the supermono is that much faster in the corners and driving becomes so much easier. All this leads to more fun on the track more confidence to the bike and finally faster lap times. The fact that your finally able to squeeze out your race bike makes you feel like a pro racer.
