You know the factory tested twin pipes on the new 450 KTM but the riders said it made too much torque

The formula 450 androgenous look is well and truly in... with the latest HRC and KTM offerings, lite white YZ'z, the Beta and now this one...

Soon they'll be recruiting horse jockeys or T'd'F cyclists to ride the things...
Still unfinished... I presume the "real" one will have a bigger front tank at least!

Is there any word on what motor is in the KTM? is it something new or the old rally motor?

Also same question on the Honda. Are they using the same 450 motors as there enduro bikes?
