#2387: Wheelean

Today’s invention is a new form of motorcycle wheel.

It consists of several concentric, tyred wheels on the same axle as the main wheel.

Half of these smaller wheels can be driven hydraulically to the right (and the other half left), so as to provide much better support and roadholding when cornering aggressively.

This arrangement could also be used to minimise drag on the straights and fine-tune the front forks’ angular momentum when steering into and out of corners.
