Yamaha R1 Two Wheel Drive (2WD) tested by MCN

MCN (Motorcycle News Magazine) from the UK has some amazing videos on Youtube. Here they're testing out a Yamaha R1 superbike with additional front wheel traction. Wow, that sounds interesting. Really wondering how this takes cornering better. Enjoy the video here!

from MCN's site:
"MCN is the only publication in the world to have ridden the Ohlins two-wheel-drive Yamaha R1. Watch the video for a tech explaination of the 2WD system and see MCN's Trevor Franklin take a test ride on the revolutionary machine at the remote Karlskoga track in Sweden."
