1918 Indian model o opposed twin

Harry Sucher's book The Iron Redskin mentions the light twin model o , introduced in 1917 as the replacement for the underpowered model K. The model o above was only produced in 1917 and 1918. Another great reference book ;Jerry Hatfield's Indian Motorcycle Photographic History mentions non-Indian riders calling it the model nothing, Interesting how one motorcyle maker can generate a failure w a design and another motorcycle maker like BMW could turn the opposed twin into a hugely successful design.
