Since most motorcyclists don't have Marc Márquez's skill with holding the bike up with knees and elbows, some kind of new force would have to be added to the system. So Wahl began exploring what a rocket could do. Using 3-D, full-physics simulation software, her team began modeling how much thrust was needed, and where should the jet be placed. As to the first part, she wouldn't share, declaring it a "key secret." As to the second, the jet needed to be as low as possible, and on the system I saw installed on a KTM 1190, relatively close to the front wheel. And as you can see in the video, the system apparently works, at least on a small slippery patch. With a bike equipped with outriggers and being ridden by a stunt rider, Bosch demonstrated what happens with and without the system if a hard-cornering machine strikes a loose patch of gravel. Oh, earplugs were definitely passed out before the demo. With the earplugs in and the bike 100 feet away when it went off, the thruster was loud, but almost certainly less so than a 12-gauge shotgun discharge.
