Ray Van Steenwyk track testing the Motorcycle Innovation - TS3 data collection prototype.

3 x left / right weave test: Yellow line TS3 prototype. Blue line Suzuki GSX 750 R.
The yellow line on the turn rate indicates a faster turn rate into, though and exiting a corner. The yellow rotation line indicates a smoother line through the turn. This indicates the TS3 is faster and smoother through any corner camber combination. It is faster, safer and more stable than any stanchion steered or alternate front end steering system.

Empirical on track testing results collected through 2011 to 2015 validate all test rider and data analyst observations.
The MCI - motoinno TS3 displays significant differences to and benefits over a well-mannered motorcycle with a conventional fork based, steered stanchion or other alternate front end systems.
Under braking the lack of dive in the TS3 offers more stability and builds confidence for the rider. There is no bike wallow or weight shift inherent as in a telescopic fork unit.
The TS3 achieves a more direct entry into a corner than a normal flip flop counter steer maneuver and it achieves a higher rate of turn for less lean into, through and on exit from a corner. This means more contact patch on the road in any given situation.
Changes to throttle position or braking input on the TS3 have little or no effect on the motorcycle’s ability to hold a line through a corner and any change in direction does not affect its stability into a corner, mid corner or on exit from a corner - a major cause of steered stanchion accidents.
The TS3 is less influenced by unbalanced suspension movement mid corner and therefore less affected by changes in road surface or camber.
On the entry to, during and on exit from a corner the TS3 has the ability to hold a tighter line with less effort from the bike or rider.
Under controlled and extreme braking (even in a full front wheel stoppie) the TS3 demonstrated that it does not suffer from unbalancing 'stiction', lateral or horizontal oscillations (bouncing) in the front suspension whereas telescopic forks did.
The TS3 has no corner lean issues associated with alternate steering systems.
