Worlds most aerodynamic motorcycle

These are just some computer generated pics. But this bike is supposedly going to be the most aerodynamic bike in the world. It's going to be super expensive though. I'll try and find some real pics.

They had a prototype at Laguna. Wreck the bike and you are out some money. No frame... Hope the engine can support a drop.

Well if you have the money to buy one you can afford to drop it. I heard it has a sick engine too. It's up to the customer to decide how much performance they want but they can get up to 200hp out of a 1000cc inline 4.

Well they are only making ten for some high end clients. But hopefully the Italians and Japanese take notice of this bike to improve aerodynamics on production bikes.

Seems to me that if you are too tall or too short, you wont fit on the bike the way it is designed. The way the fairing is shaped for the leg.

yeah its going to be amazing. i agree with the concept of no frame, but it has to be strong enough and probably flexible to compensate for all of that kinetic energy being released.

can some one explain how did they turn the front wheel to steer. cause I've been staring at the CAD pictures and I cant figure out how the single swing arm on the lower left of the wheel can allow you to turn with out piviting on the left side of the fork, this will resulting the front wheel pivoiting out of the bikes centrl plan.

i dont understand how they can claim that is the most aerodynamic when salt flat motorcycles are way better aerodynamics

I guess they mean the most aerodynamic street legal bike? I dunno but it is about 50% more aerodynamic then today's current sport bikes.

I second the steering.. Look at the video 1:16. It only has like 2 inches to either side for steering. Meant for the salt straights I guess. T

thats not the real bike. its just a composite to show you what its gonna be like. im sure by the time it reaches production it will be way different. i think they mentioned that its just a wind tunnel model hence the reason why the gauges arent real and the the brakes arent real.

i guess so, or mabye on the official site they hid some important front suspension parts so other companies dont jack their ideas. because from what i can see there is no way it can steer like a convesional street bike with its setup. also it said the setup was a duble wishbone steup where the lower A-link ( swing arm) connect to the engine acts as the lower wishbone. but there the hell is the top wishbone? to me every where on the bike looks right but the steering.

after carfully looking at it, it seems like the end of the front swing arm is at the center of the front wheel, and the wheel spooks are convex to the right. but it still seems very unstable during its damping actions. on the other hand what do i know, im no F-1 engineer.
