What new tech did we see at the Misano Test?

The Misano Test was a fascinating two days of track time as we witnessed every factory test some new parts, mainly for 2022. However, what we want to talk about here is the aero package. The aero is different and the most intriguing thing is where the aero attaches at the front and the back. The current aero attaches at the front of the fairing and then reattaches further back on the side fairing, different to the new aero that attaches and then reattaches much further forward. More notably, they also had new aero packages – two of them. But it’s the second aero package where things get really interesting. KTM were testing this (see below) new aero package on Day 2. But, after direct comparison to the standard bike, the aero, air intake and fairings are exactly the same. The current World Championship leaders unveiled a new chassis yesterday. The main update we saw from the Noale factory was the new front aero package.
