MotoGP, Buriram gives KTM wings

The Austrian manufacturer has debuted a new fairing in line with solutions adopted by its rivals

MotoGP: Buriram gives KTM wings


Despite it being its sponsor's most famous slogan, KTM had not yet got wings. Up until now, the Austrian manufacturer's bikes featured aerodynamic solutions that differed from those of its rivals. As you can see in the above image, the RC16 was using a front fairing with a flattened shape combined with appendages to the sides of the fairing (left-hand image).

Buriram has brought a new solution (right-hand image), very similar to those that the competition has already been using for a while. The front fairing now has a conventional shape, with two wings underneath, very similar to those used by Honda or Yamaha.
