The BMW concept is not new, I designed and copyrighted “the linked floating spindle concept” back in the early 90’s.
This concept was viewed by the Suzuki GP in the early 90's & later by The Harris brothers who were at the time running the Suzuki world superbike team. I have correspondents between us that support this theory.
I would be happy for you to print this article or forward it on to BMW, I would be interested in their response. I can email you a Powerpoint file with my design enclosed.
