Based on the geometry of a current-spec 250cc motocrosser, the project’s initial focus was on the design and product development processes over performance engineering, but Benstead said he could see a future for a marketable model based on the air-powered prototype.
If petrol power was past and electric power was present, Benstead said he believed that with. . .
