    Talk about what that tank is on the bike behind you.
    I get that they most likely charge the shock but, why is it left sitting there?

    The subject of aerodynamics fascinates me the most about prototype development. The tricks that you can play with airflow development are so awesome.
    Side note: the voice of Simon can make me so intensely calm on any stressed day. Zennnnnn.

    after watching this tech talk video,the important thing i know about these aero fairing is they work just like spoiler in a can increase aerodynamic of the bike,reduce drag, and make the bike go faster.

    Another great video. 35 years ago when I started racing TZ 350 Yamahas a fairing cost about £25, i wonder if the KTM fairing is much more!!
    Yes my fairing was upgraded most weekends using Isopon and fibre fill as my TZ was constantly firing me down the road🤣😂🤣

    Can you talk more Tech and less Regulation. I'd like to know more about how the areo affects the bike upright and leaning more so then what the teams are regulated or restricted. It is #TechTalk after all not RestrictTalk.
