Pick your technical highlights of 2009

1 of 1

MCN’s technical expert Kevin Ash is currently deciding who should receive the MCN Golden Piston Award for technical innovation in 2009.

Should it be Honda for its off-set crank pins in the VFR1200F? Or Yamaha for its crossplane crank in the R1? Or BMW for its combined ABS and traction control on the S1000RR?

Or is there something else Kev should be considering?

Other categories we’d be interested to get your nominations for are:

– Most useless innovation of the year award
– Best and worst concept bike award
– Brilliant but simple award

All suggestions will be passed on to Kev.

The Golden Piston Awards will be in MCN on December 30.
