    I should think the only way would be a friction drive to the back tyre.

    I doubt it would be able to turn a corner,,, unless it can use about 10 Klm radius.

    I thought it would be holding the rims by magnets. Dunno just assumed that.
    As to turning well most turning is done with leaning and it should be able to lean.... A little bit.

    Reminds me of my brothers harley. Nice bike but the exhaust is that low that you cant turn right corners at all well.
    As a Gixxer rider who has enjoyed quality bikes that ride properly this bothered the hell out of me, not enough to not ride it, hell no but enough to be dangerous for sure.

    Did i just go off topic? Yea a little.

    In that video itís lowered (has bagged suspension).
    They are a roller in roller design, drive is via a tooth drive inside the rear.
