wow... If that is the case, it would seem that Chaleco has succeeded in negotiating himself a "best of both worlds" safety clause for his 2013 dakar aspirations. A new ride, with a new and very committed team... but, if the "new" bike does not live up to expectations, he he still has the opportunity to fall back to the proven mount, and run under the B/F team colours.

I always thought it was strange that Chaleco would leave Aprilia for B/F, soley on the premise that they were developing a new bike from scratch (he's been there, done that). Then came the press release of the interim team co-operation with KTM (made sense), and now they release a promising new bike of their own design (kudos!)
This latest news/rumour would appear to be Chaleco's "fall back plan" if the new dream bike is not up to speed in time for january?
