    Very interesting question. Like Ackerman steering for tilting.
    I can't find a clear answer in what little searching I did.
    If you did this via simple linkage lengths, you would have a positive camber in the vehicle upright position where you would have to take the outside wheel through vertical on turn in. That would be clearly a bad thing I think. Obviously you could devise a camming linkage or actuator to better control differential lean of the fronts. My gut says that the free lean balances the handlebar torque / centres the steering effort and that the outside wheel just turns a little faster with no scrubbing.

    Who exactly is the target audience for this? Its not a safe tourer like the can am, nor is it cheap and accessible like a little piaggo. Anyone wanting a sporty ~900cc is going to want 2 wheels, not 3. Not saying there isn't a single buyer out there, but mass market? GL.

    Awesome. Very interested to see what kind of active safety systems they can incorporate into these things. I predict these and other TTWs killing the can am.

    Now just stuff an R1 motor in there...

    Compared to any 2 wheel bike my 1200 gs sucks on loose gravel ...and if this bike actually lives up to its Cornering Master claim on pavment then its concept may become a replacment for some who enjoy twisty mountain roads.looks like were gonna get to find out soon enough if there is a performance edge with this design.
