Legit source, but this is literally the only information we have on the 989 at the moment. This one picture. Time for the hype train!

The 989 will be available in the America's in October. I assume the drivers going to the WC this year will have priority obtaining this chassis. By the way, they covered the chassis with a body for a reason. They do not want the competition to see it.

Why does the cooling head look tilted back?

I'd guess the body shroud does not properly fit all chassis motor placement and thus the motor is loose and place best possible for a pic.

It will fit all current models just fine. Granted the Wheel and Body Mount cut-outs will be different, yet the Motor / Air-filter / Fuel Tank placements are pretty standard these days. As stated its an illusion of the Photo. Dale usually does a great job of ensuring current offerings fit the latest standard chassis.

More excited to see Salven, Merlin and Greiner running at the Worlds with the new car.
