KTMs new engine - counter rotating crank?

Looks like KTMs new engine has a counter rotating crank that brings them in line with the rest of the field, but more importantly seems to be worth 1 sec per lap...

Wonder if Zarco knew this when he signed

MotoGP?

I'm sure he would have.
KTM would have made it known to him (with disclosure clauses) in which direction they were headed, I think they will be force to be watching in the coming years.

Thanks for the info ......

I agree KTM would not start this venture to roll around mid pack, I will expect them in the not too distant future to come up with an RC16 based Super Bike, and join the production racing fun too.

All cashed up but you need to sell bikes to keep the system running, I would think it would cost a packet to run a group of bikes in MotoGP and the others

I really hope to see KTM competitive next year.

On a side note, have they developed a seamless gearbox for their bikes?
