World’s first two-wheeled motorcycle burnout!

Our friends at Silodrome posted this story about Gregor Halenda and his small team building an AWD KTM 990 and then deciding to go out and do the world’s first two wheeled burnout with it. Apparently, the project itself started out as a plan to just powdercoat the swingarm, but before anyone knew it, the mission to create an AWD KTM was well underway.

The rake and wheelbase of the Panigale are adjustable for various setups, along with carbon fibre air ducts and more ergonomic foot pegs. Another highlight is that the rear subframe is now bolted directly to the chassis. Continue reading →
