Two things

1. It's a parallel twin

2. Not a promising image regarding oil consumption.

1. Lighter than a v twin ( I'm guessing )

2. 2 stroke?

1. easier to package in a motorcycle space envelope and cheaper to manufacture
2. No. maybe dry ice behind the bike or something added to the gas for effect?

I already talked to my KTM dealer.
The deal is....
If it weighs 170kg or less fully fuelled, ready to ride, and has at least 100 NM of torque he can order me one the same second they start taking orders.
