The new Tryphonos motorcycle has been developed with the following features:
- Significant reduction in friction over telescopic forks especially during braking and cornering.
- Less steering inertia, as only the wheel is being steered and not the suspension system.
- Higher stability yet with increased agility at high speeds.
- Easily adjustable steering geometry with wider range.
- Lighter chassis weight due to compact design and more direct load paths. The frame does not have to cope with the high leverage exerted by telescopic forks.
- Greater mass centralization.
- Improved aerodynamics due to height reduction of fuel tank made possible by frame design allowing reduced height of frontal area with rider in tucked position.
- Enhanced cooling, the smaller water radiator receives better air flow and dispels hot air more efficiently due to improved packaging unrestricted by the position of forks and yokes.
- Direct engine intake system. No chassis beams or steering head above the engine results in unimpeded air flow directly to throttle bodies. Conventional systems need to direct air through or around the chassis or between top and bottom fork yokes and around the steering stem.
