KTM reject stunning claim that Jack Miller was offered big-money test rider role
KTM currently have five riders under contract, but due to Dorna’s rejection of their request for an extra bike, they will only have four bikes in their MotoGP 2024 rider line-up. Dorna proposed the idea of increasing wild cards to allow a team to effectively have a fifth rider who races more than 10 times per season. However, reports of KTM offering Jack Miller double the salary to be an exceptional tester have been denied by the team. KTM has renewed Dani Pedrosa’s role as a test rider for 2024, and he will race as a wild card at the upcoming San Marino MotoGP. There are discussions about promoting Pedro Acosta to the premier class and giving him a factory bike immediately, while Miller stated that his 2024 contract implies that there is no need for a conversation about his future. KTM has ambitious expansion plans, including acquiring a satellite team for 2025 and expressing interest in signing Marc Marquez.
