[kropotkin thinks...] - Sepang MotoGP Test Photo Analysis: Aprilia's Wings, KTM's 3D

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


Sepang MotoGP Test Photo Analysis: Aprilia's Wings, KTM's 3D Printing Advantage, And Yamaha Aero And Frame Aerodynamics was a main focus for most of the teams (and coincidentally, also the easiest thing to spot), and almost all the manufacturers rolled out some interesting parts. Aprilia have taken a leading role recently, picking up after Ducati and in some aspects, overtaking them. At Sepang, they rolled out a new front wing, pictured here (my phone photo) on Maverick Viñales' bike.

As you can see, the front wing now is now a triplane and not a biplane, with three wings instead of two. If you compare it with the photo of the standard front wing (below, picture by Cormac Ryan Meenan), you can see that the upper wing has been split in two to create something similar to the original, while an extra wing has been added below, curving up before reaching the fairing.
