I wish you had something to say instead of a load of pictures that do nothing to inform.

Is not a picture worth a thousand words?

BTW I am not opposed to innovation.

So why not air what you see rather than post a video/picture. Myself I wouldn't say Zarco is trying to tame anything, more learning how to make it work for himself.

I Ride: Honda CRF250 (modified for Dirt Track)
KTM is the MotoGP equivalent of PSG (the football/soccer team Paris Saint Germain). They think a lot of money will make them winners.

It doesn't work like that tho, nor in MotoGP, nor in football...

Having a humongous budget (read: Red Bull) that was used to buy several top-notch engineers and project managers (several from Honda) is only one ingredient...there's about 100 others

Pol Espargaro is doing a fantastic work tho, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd score a podium at some point, but that's the highest KTM can currently aim at, IMHO.

I agree, but not with Pol. This is his 3rd year and KTM's 3rd year, he normally in front of his brother who has been around since the year dot it feels like. They will finish in front of Aprilia this year by some margin I think.
Next year I bet Oliviera will be their best rider.
