The ‘RC’ in the motorcycle's name has been derived from KTM's long-standing usage of the ‘RC’ designation (short for Road Competition) for its sportbikes, beginning with the RC8, RC 390, and RC 125 production models and also applied since 2012 to the RC250GP Moto3 machine

The 16 in the name of the bike is related to the number of valves in the engine (four valves per cylinder x 4 cylinders), keeping with KTM tradition as used in similar bikes' designations such as the former V-twin 1190 RC8 model and the various LC4 single-cylinder models.

KTM started its MotoGP journey back in 2017 with the RC16 and only a year later, the brand was able to clinch its first podium finish. Over the years, KTM's racing prowess has improved tremendously and in 2019 it enjoyed its best year yet in competition and Pol Espargaro (one of its riders) managed to score eight top ten finishes.
