Congratulations!
that is not just a win for you and your team but a huge win for the sport too. That should open the doors to make it a whole lot more affordable and attainable for people to chase their racing dreams.

Great news! This kind of out of the box innovation is fantastic for the sport. All we need now is a wide-ratio gearbox to slip into the 690 platform.

Instead of destroking the ktm 690 to get reliable 450cc legal rally steed... Wouldn't it be easier/cheaper to just stroke a DRZ?

Just kidding... Sort of.
