Edi looks good, if it works as you expect to have the invention of the car body clips is a good idea and the new accommodation for the crash bar is interesting, here in Barcelona there is a person who tried but Ruedin, but is Ruedin engages far the best slide nylon arch but had no place in the swing to be placed in the correct position.

good job, as always ...

This means that when the bike is in a turn and the suspension compresses the crashbars stay "in position". Just take your conventional bike (disconnect the shocks) and lay it on the crashbars. When you move the suspension through its stroke you will see that the leaning angle changes.

Virtual Pivot point = zero interaction between suspension and transmission.
I dont know if this will help and make the bike better to drive this is a unknown factor. The idea is that the rear suspension is free to work whatever throttle position you are in. Full acceleration and Full brake cause a lockup of the rear swingarm.

Suspension also works while wheelying: well thats exactly what it means. When the front wheel is in the air the rear suspension can still even out the bumps. Try that with a normal bike.

Internal fairing clips (far way from those damn curbs). I have hidden the fairing clips away from the outside of the bike. This is just a nuisance on any bike and I wanted a solution to keep the bodyposts hidden. But still have a quick release clip for emergency services

These are just a few "new" features the 2012 bike has over the 2011....

Hi, edi

Thank you very much.
The more I know about your bike, the more I want to have it.
I really hope that someday I could buy your bike.

Hello Marino
Hi Marino,

I will be using the "shorty" style Lipo Hardcase you see here.
This is very risky. I do not know if this will be enough capacity.

4400... you are kidding those rubbish Lipos just manage 4000. Cycled them a few times
thats the absolute max..I am not sure at all if it will be enough capacity. In Riccione I
can do approx. 38 Laps with a 5500 so maths say it should just be enough.

I do not want to do the devil's advocate ... But Gianni tried that type of batteries a month ago in Riccione and with little or no sealing of the track but managed to make over 22 rounds in October and I remember Gianni Edi did 26 laps ......... ......................
Best regards Marino

Did you think about saddle lipos?

More capacity choices (up to 6000mAh), but you may need to move the battery tray upwards....

Current shorties measure about 96x46x25mm while saddle lipos go up to 94x69x32mm (6000mAh)

But you will need two of those saddle lipos. One saddle has only 3,7V.
The usual dimensons for saddlepacks are: approx 69x47x25.1
Under the line this is heavier and needs more room than the shorties.


I hope 4000mAh will be enough. If not: rubbish bin

And placing the recepetor and esc on a tray on the crash bars, frees space in the center of the bike and put there the two vertical batteries?

It's an idea ...
