I used to use their roundslide carbs on my speedway bikes back in the day and I still have an old one atop my workbench. They used to be stock issue on Jawas. BZ, Blixt and floatless flatslides are the norm these days. Nice to see they are still doing good business, especially within the MotoGP family. Good luck Dell Orto!
