After eight years of using the Aprilia SXV 550 engine, the FAUmax Kappa features a single cylinder powertrain with the KTM SFX 450 engine. In addition, the new chassis features, a monocoque and a rear chassis that are both made of CFRP, a new suspension design focusing on simple geometry, low weight and low friction and an aerodynamics package that promises more downforce and less drag than its predecessor
