These photos show the nearly completed Moto2 racer from tiny Spanish builder Bottpower. Previously the make of the CBR954RR-based Bottpower Morlaco, David Sanchez has been developing this prototype since the series was announced last year. The interesting things to look at here are the stemless headstock that allows a straight path for air to flow into the airbox, the simple and very slender fuel tank and the sheer elegance of Bottpower's engineering. Aside from the diminutive proportions, that straight path for the air inlet is the most important thing for a series that runs spec CBR600RR engines, that almost the only area from which you can hope to gain a power advantage.
