MotoGP: PHOTO - KTM “doubles” its wings: new aerodynamics at Sepang

There was nothing new worth noticing on the KTMs during the shakedown days. But, today, the Austrian engineers decided to pull something out of their hats. On the windscreen of Miguel Oliveira's RC16 we noticed new double wings, which you can see in detail in the photos below.

This is actually not an innovation, since Aprilia was using similar wings stince last year, with Honda that also followed suit on its new bike.

But the KTM engineers developed this solution by adapting it to the overlapping wings, transforming the RC16 into a ... quadruplane.
