Active Suspension For Motorcycles: from Automobiles

Motorcycle has not seen a fundamental change for many years. The basic has consisted of a swingarm out back to either twin shocks, or a with or without linkage.

Up it’s been telescopic doing the business, and with the of the now extinct Yamaha GTS 1000 and Tesi 1D, along with a of private builders, the biggest have centered around internal damping and the adoption of down (USD) forks no, we haven’t forgotten BMW’s In any event, these are all static Once you are riding, you are stuck the suspension settings until you over and manually adjust (assuming they are adjustable, at

Auto technology makes its way to the two-wheeled world when or advantageous, as in the case of catalytic anti-lock brakes and variable timing. These days, suspension is pretty much on high-end automobiles, like Seville STS, Mercedes Land Rover, etc.

The to cars are obvious – the resistance to roll promotes flatter attitude, and conversely, the more ride available from a that “reads” the road and itself to the conditions rather reacting as our “conventional” suspension on settings that at best are a to address all possibilities of terrain on a ride of any distance.

General has an interesting active suspension on its Cadillac Seville STS. A is filled with a synthetic that has soft iron floating in it. On the shock shaft, an is fitted that carries a current that gets approximately 1000 times a by a computer after collecting from a number of sensors report on suspension movement and pitch in any direction.

Changes in current to the electromagnet the iron particle-carrying fluid or less, viscous, and therefore or less, resistant to flowing the damping orifices, effectively suspension damping to the current conditions.

Having active on a bike would create benefits, as well. Instead of roll, fore and aft chassis and ride height, could be along with variable Steering and chassis geometry be optimized, rather than for the wide possibilities of chassis under braking or acceleration.

Compression of the suspension under loads could be controlled to (or prevent) specific behaviors the motorcycle in a given circumstance.

and small hydraulic pumps are for most designs, and with come extra weight and horsepower loss due to the hydraulic that must be mechanically (either directly off of the engine, or indirectly off of a supplementary electric Where to fit the hardware is another for the designer to confront.

Larger, motorcycles seem to be the most candidates, since their and weight means that the of the extra hardware would less of an effect than if it fitted to something like an or middleweight sportbike. Yet, it to reason that while all will benefit from suspension, sportbikes will be the benefactor, since they to be ridden in a more aggressive and experience greater degrees of /suspension movement.

Suzuki’s concept bike, the from the 80s, had electronically active suspension listed the rest of it’s futuristic but that seems to have the last utterance of anything active suspension from any manufacturer.

When surfing the you never know what may pop up. The name Ducati popped up looking for information concerning suspension, and it led MD staff to the United Patent Office web site. we found that during of this year Claudio on behalf of Ducati, has applied for a for an active rear suspension

Detailed descriptions of the design’s complete with drawings, that Ducati is developing an suspension for the rear of the bike will have the rear “squat” when the motorcycle is in a situation — avoiding the rear lift that can limit braking forces.

Sensors will monitor front line pressure and front movement determine when, and how squat is required. It seems Ducati is looking to lower the of gravity to make lifting the wheel a more remote even under the most situations, like racing. Mr. is head of Ducati’s racing
