Default Orion R21 Factory 7P

http://www.teamorionshop.com/en/18/1...ory-7t-18.html

What do we know about this engine? I was talking to Adrien on Facebook about these and he was saying they're now made in Orion's own Japanese factory, they're not based on Picco and haven't been for a while.

They've got the patented CRF crankshaft similar to the old Nikasil sleeved wasps, but they're ABC construction.

Anyone got any internal pictures of these? or tried one on track?

It is interesting that Adrien Bertin said are now made in Japan. Anyone else heard this or can verify? Curious
