Austrian manufacturer KTM will make their debut at T.T. 2010.
Best known for off-road biking, with Manxman David Knight winning both his World Enduro titles aboard their machinery,
KTM did compete in the Austrian and German Superbike Championships last season.
Part of the bike's development is a first ever appearance around the Mountain Course.
Loughborough's James Edmeades will become the first rider to line-up on Glencrutchery Road on the bright orange bike.
Edmeades made his T.T. debut in 2006 and has picked up two bronze replicas from his nine starts.
KTM will join Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha with official factory-backed efforts at T.T. 2010 - James says it's really good news for the event:-
