The Nuova Faor T15

From Mario Lopez Garcia's FB page:

The green anodizing looks beautiful. I can't wait to hear about how it performs.

All that green, you would have to dress it like a Kawasaki, Ninja.

As for the name, the 15 is obvious, the "T" is for Titanium. Andrea Ottina said it has titanium bolts and titanium is used in various other places.

Looks very interesting, indeed, and knowing that the developing team are top drivers, the Worlds will be very very interesting.

Look nice , very close to the jabber i think, i like the design of the t15 but i hope that the ugly green anodizing will replace by the orange or better by titanium bronze.
I wait the aviability

That looks fantastic! You have got to love how the RC bikes are evolving. The guys that are driving it (development) all do a great job. It will be great to see it on the track.

I don't think it looks like the Jabber at all, beyond going with a more narrow frame. It is nice to see NF embracing another design direction than the current line they are doing.

The green is very rich and looks nice, but what makes it more interesting is that they would do countersunk washers in the first place. Nice detail.

And I agree with Steliosh, it will be very interesting to see a head to head with the Jabber.

Low profile, fewer parts than the competitor....looks like a winner to me.

That's something I've never understood about some bike designs. Multiple plates to remove for even the smallest tune process...

Two plates chassis, with all parts accesible from the outside, speed pit time.

The only things the T15 shares in common with the Jabber are the clamping motor mount, the two-plate support for the steering pivot, and two wheels.

In fact, I'd hazard to say that if you take away the carbon plates on the swingarm, the rear-end geometry looks to be the same as the SF-601. So I think it's hardly a huge design jump from the SF series. However, that doesn't mean I think it's a bad design; the NF team is pretty sharp, so I'm sure it will perform well on the track.

The only bike that has copies of major Jabber design elements is the Oshmen's Dean Tech GT913, with its swingarm-mounted motor and centered-between-the-wheels (or close to it) swingarm pivot point. And even it doesn't use the direct servo front brake that the Jabber (and SB5) has.

Oh, and I'll say it again -- I love, love, LOVE the green on the T15!
