Video: 2WD Yamaha R1 First Ride
MCN road tester Trevor Franklin rode the Ohlins two-wheel-drive Yamaha R1 at the Karlskoga track in Sweden and came to the conclusion that: "The 2WD system works brilliantly. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t be fitted to road-going motorcycles."
After the break, you can check out the technical details, see the 2WD system work with the bike on the stands and then on the track with MCN’s tester onboard.
2WD is yet to be used on a large scale in the motorcycle industry, but articles such as the one published in today’s MCN number might just make a difference.
