Two-wheel drive motorcycles sound a little bizarre until you read Yamaha's detailed explanation of their system, now in its fourth year of development. Yamaha owns the Swedish company Ohlins, best known for its suspension systems, and Ohlins is the brains behind the two-wheel drive system employed by Yamaha on prototype dirt bikes since 1998

Seems like its been longer than 4 years. I think I remember seeing a pic of a 2wd R1 back in 99 or so.



Well I just did a search to try and see if I could find anything on it from back then and found this article from 01. Maybe its was just Ohlins though and not really together with Yamaha back then. The article says Ohlins have been working on it sine 1992
