However, although chassis geometry is rarely a headline grabber, the role it plays in the handling performance of every motorcycle cannot be understated. This feature is designed to give you a general overview of how chassis geometry affects the way your motorcycle works, and why it is so important.
Well, like every aspect of motorcycle and scooter design, the general specification of the chassis is determined by the use for which the bike is intended, and the precise dimensions are finalised following intensive development in the laboratory and on the test track.
Enhancing the experience Motorcycle chassis geometry is never going to be the first thing that comes into your mind when you see a new Yamaha. But we hope that this brief overview of wheelbase, trail and caster helps you to see every motorcycle in a different way.
For the past 15 years, W. Robert Ransom has been a designer and fabricator of custom street motorcycles. He has done things like taking a Suzuki GSX-R1000 or a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R motor and creating everything around it. From the chassis to the VIN number, suspension, wheels, body, exhaust, handlebars, and fuel tank, Ransom does it all. It made perfect sense that he would want to put his personal touches on every facet of the chassis. He did that, and more.
Our revolutionary modular battery monocoque is a legacy free platform. Releasing the design process from the necessity to incorporate cross vehicle architecture - our architecture is bespoke to each vehicle maximising it's true potential. Arc's philosophy has manifested itself in our first product, the Vector - replacing the traditional chassis with the battery facilitates the Vector's class leading range and performance bike mass figures delivering a dynamic experience often lost with electric vehicles and especially motorcycles.
This latest generation all-aluminum frame is significantly lighter and more compact than previous editions. State-of-the-art die-casting lets us fine-tune chassis rigidity, giving you both a smooth ride and precise handling.STANDARD ON: ALL TRIMS 781b155fdc
