That said, it is also interesting to see that no other manufacturer is going down the reverse cylinder route, and one might argue that KTM particularly are producing plenty of [the most?] power from their conventional architecture 450cc rally engine...

As with the Genesis 5-valve head design, perhaps Yamaha will ultimately drop that idea too?

At least they never pivoted the rear suspension around the countershaft sprocket, or had a clutch that ran backwards at twice the speed on the end of the crankshaft!
