MAHINDRA

In case anyone is wondering, Oral Engineering, the company that developed a 990cc three cylinder MotoGP machine for BMW, is behind this one. Following is from the Mahindra website: "The Mahindra Moto3 Challenger has been developed in conjunction with Engines Engineering. The neat package, liveried in red and white, features a tubular steel frame and aluminum swing arm. The MGP3O weighs only 83 kg and has a Mahindra-homologated 250cc, single-cylinder, four stroke liquid-cooled DOHC engine developed in conjunction with Oral Engineering."
Great to have another challenger in here.

Who is this Malaysian kid?

My thoughts exactly... Who is this Malaysian kid? No worries.. His second spot was probably a fluke... No need to get excited..
Come race day, everything will be back to normal...
