Honda’s filed a funky front end set-up for a scooter (and something bigger, so the rumour-mill has it).
Check out these patents filed by Honda for new front-suspension system that’s (so far) been shown in place on a scooter.
They’re pretty much out there in terms of the scooter but we’ve heard on the grapevine (which is highly prone to being wrong… but we’ve heard it…) that this sort of system could well end up being used on something bigger.
These are rumours based on nothing more than gossip though. Remember that.
What is real is the patent drawings here. These are pukka and fresh from Honda. What do you make of them? Why would they be better? We value your input on this please, brainy bikey people. Thanks.
