Motorcycle Suspension Design - State-of-the-Art Survey, 1983 830152

Evolutionary changes have produced significant improvements in motorcycle ride, handling, stability and control. These changes include improvements in chassis geometry, wheel travel, damping, user adjustability and structural stiffness. Within the short span of the last decade, both highway and offroad motorcycles have achieved substantially higher levels of chassis performance. Using current model machines, it is possible to clearly identify trends in chassis development, and to illustrate the very high level of technical sophistication of modern motorcycles.
