LEAN­ING MULTIWHEEL TECH­NOL­OGY

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Motoring -

The Niken’s two front wheels are in­de­pen­dently mounted, so each wheel can lean at a dif­fer­ent an­gle. The sys­tem is based on the Ack­er­mann steer­ing prin­ci­ple, a geo­met­ric ar­range­ment of link­ages in the steer­ing that au­to­mat­i­cally cor­rects the turn­ing an­gles of the wheels when ne­go­ti­at­ing a cor­ner.
