Surely they have some Ohlins suspension on which they can do back to back testing and possibly reverse engineer.

The same story with the in-house suspension brand.

The only problem with Zarco is that he got vetoed by rossi. Otherwise he would have been the next nearest thing to Marquez, if he had gotten the factory Yam ride. Its hard to know whether the aprillia or ktm is the most "nowhere bike".

You got a link? First I've heard of this!

I was under the impression he would have had to take Mav's seat, with Vinales holding on to a 2 year contract being the issue?

I thought KTM offered Zarco more money???

as for Aprilia vs KTM, right now Aprilia is doing more with less.

when you think about KTM they have a 2 teams (4 bikes) and a testing program which is essentially a 3rd team with quality riders, they should be miles ahead of where they are.
