Wow, sweet find. I thought it was going to be pretty lame, but that hydraulic setup is really cool.

I've always wondered why there weren't any 2wd motorcycles.

Neat piece of engineering! I like the technical thinking behind the concept but I don't see it making an appearance in the showrooms any time soon.

I would think that fast corners may prove to be interesting with a 2wd system.

Interesting. Why don't they make production bikes 2WD? Is it costs? or are there safety/efficiency concerns? Is the only pro to a 2WD traction?

I think there would be issues having a 2wd system on a bike designed for only one, it just seems like it would ruin the handling unless it was on a bike purposely for 2wd.

Awesome. Hydraulic pumps and gears seem appropriately sized. Would love to see more on this

I had a think about that and how you could perhaps lose the front but given that i can wheelie out of roundabouts on the 1000 while leaned over, and you see guys carrying the front out of corners in racing, i suspect it isn't an issue.

My overriding concerns would be to do with hydraulic failure...

I recall seeing this same hydraulic technology in a dirt bike magazine many years ago, probably 10 or so, on an offroad bike.

Would this technology work on the rear? Wouldn't a hydraulic rear drive be much more lightweight than a standard chain and sprocket setup? Is it not heavy duty enough to handle the load?

That's what I was thinking, just use hydrolic for the front and rear!
