    Not really sure of where to post this, but I have just spotted this on another forum.






    I wonder what the design concept/thinking is behind the idea of the forks. I can only pressume that it would make wheel changes quicker?

    Looks like they've copied Nik's bandit.

    The main difference being Nik's bandit looks lush. This looks minging.

    I haven't seen the Bandit, but can't argue with the "looks minging" comment. To a degree, I guess that is what concept vehicles are about.

    Is there a photo anywhere of the Bandit?

    The problem of being different to every other bike?

    That's not really a problem. Surely the brief of any component is that it must be better than the last one, otherwise it's going backwards. How is this better than one fork leg each side?

    Rubbish. If all bikes had to be better than previous ones would all be riding the latest greatest sports bike.
    Plenty put form before function.
    I'm sure someone thinks this looks great.

    Was watching them do front wheel changes on endurance racers on TV recently.
    Doubt that setup could be faster than that.

    Have seen that fork setup on another little bike a while ago and wasn't keen on it then either. I would have thought it would cause more stiction on the forks as well cos I can't see it being as stiff.

    Meh, not bothered cos its not my bike.

    I wonder if the transfer of load under braking or when hitting a bump is the same for both units.

    Is the slightly extended bottom yoke really going to take the same stresses as a normal twin yoke set up without cracking? And that's before wheelies and stoppies are considered.
