Very nice design. Must have had monumental problems calculating gear ratios, and I bet the bike slips slightly into turns. Still, very nice.

Yamaha used to do a number with a hydraulically driven front wheel. Won the Dakar a couple of times, if I'm not mistaken.

Even if the idea is not new it's a very good project indeed!! The guy deserves more than a pat on the back!!

Yamaha's was hydraulic as v1p3r said, they were testing a twowheel drive superbike as well. Dint know what happened to it. There's another two wheel drive bike with chain driving the front wheel, check this out.

ROKON: TrailBreaker

good job done, there is room for lot of refinement.

I would like to know about the calculations for drive ratio for front wheel, it has to be exactly same as rear one. Did they really estimated it? aur just hit & trial way.

Intresting fabrication, want to meet these guys.

If the project is already submitted & approved? Or are they looking for more refinement, let me know.
