Aluminum spring loaded upside down front fork

They say, but in the pics we see a "normal" front fork !!
To be or not to be USD ? that's the question

lol ... belgobike, I've been pondering the same question.

All the recent "official" pics have shown the bike with stock TT forks. The other confusing thing in the tech description is the dual front disc brakes ... do plastic mock rotors really count as brakes?

... it appears more than a little misleading unless the pics we are seeing are not the final release pics?

I have a feeling that what you see in the pics is what you're gonna get. Standard issue TT forks and plastic front disks. Still worth checking out the bike though, IMO.

Nice website Jorges. I like the pics of the new NF Rossi bike. I really like the exhaust set-up. I don't know how good it will work or how durable it is, but it looks sweet. Another thing that I got from his website was a good side by side comparison of the two "new" bikes from TT and NF. It looks like they are both starting to go their own way, I know TT copied NF but either way its all good now. Here are some pics I grabbed from Jorges Site http://www.freewebs.com/motoradiocontrol/

I spy some linkage between the air filter and front wheel on the TT, must be throttle/brake servo.

The front end on the TT is raked out all chopper like. And it looks like there's not much room behind the front tire to dial it back. Hmm.

The NF looks much closer to where it should be for track use.

Doesn't it just?
Looks like the TT is still aimed at the beginner, stability over quick turning.
Nice to see a double sided swinger on the NF. And the pipe in a better position. I'd prefer Patrick's USDs though!
