KTM wont go mad, Honda has more riders then new bikes, Yamaha is still the same since 2006.

Dont know what to think of all of the above but KTM will probably win somehting again as they are the most experienced and one of the longest running true factory efforts...
We'll see. Botturi has proven plenty fast and with his age, remarkably consistent and calculated. Chavo, with the +450 championship wrapped up has been gaining speed and confidence and has been working tremendously hard to be one of those top tier riders.

That said, don't be surprised to not see all of the KTM squad on the new bike. Some prefer the dialed in mass of the known rather than the light and agile of the unknown.
