Fork in the Road

Motorcyclist - - Shift -

Honda claims its dual wish­bone front sus­pen­sion pro­vides more ef­fi­cient damp­ing than te­le­scop­ing forks while of­fer­ing a lighter-feel­ing ride. Be­cause of the more ver­ti­cal move­ment of the front wheel dur­ing com­pres­sion, the sus­pen­sion re­quires less room to op­er­ate, en­abling en­gi­neers to move the rider 36mm (1.4 inches) far­ther for­ward on the bike.
