Rondinaud Deisgn A3W Three Inline Wheels Motorcycle Concept

Designer Julien Rondinaud Projected A Motorcycle Concept With Three Inline Wheels!!!The idea is to keep all the fun and manoeuvrability of a two-wheeled bike, but make it harder to crash.

The first two wheels are very close together for agility, while the third wheel adding stability. All three wheels use independent swing arms and suspension units, and single disc brakes.

The obvious difference between the A3W and other conventional three-wheelers is that all the three 14-inch wheels of the concept are arranged in-line. Here we offer you pictures and a video of this concept.

The first two wheels are very close together for agility, with the third trailing wheel adding stability.All three wheels use independent swing arms and suspension units, and single disc brakes. But to understand how it works you have to go a bit deeper.

The front wheel uses mechanical hub steering like a Bimota Tesi or Yamaha GTS. The mid wheel puts down the power, but because the front-to-mid wheelbase is shorter with the engine reversed, the drive sprocket is itself driven by a belt and pulley, to get the correct drive direction back.
