As for the cycling part, the front uses the Ackermann LMW steering system (same as Nikken), but optimized for the 3 wheel scooter. This system features a revamped design with the tilt axis slightly offset from the steering axis. In the latter design, the left and right front wheels trace always an arc center, so that driving is more natural and intuitive. In this way, with the optimization carried out, a much safer driving is favored.
Although the chassis remains almost identical to the previous version, several improvements have nevertheless been made. These include greater longitudinal and torsional rigidity to the frame itself. Furthermore, a wheelbase extended by 60 mm and new engine mounts help improve driving comfort while dual rear shock absorbers increase travel to 90mm. To all this is added a combined braking system. This allows the braking force to be automatically distributed to the front and rear wheels when the rear brake is applied.
