The ChiQane III is a hub centre steered motorcycle.
ChiQane has developed a motorcycle that proves that comfort and safety can be combined in a machine with an alternative system.
In the ChiQane, steering, springs and brakes are completely disconnected from each other, creating a bizarre mix of directional stability and manoeuvrability.
Test by famous international motorjournalist Alan Cathcart in Motor #522 can be found online:
‘…30 laps of Assen convinced me that Roel van der Heide has not only resolved all of the problems, but quite possibly hit on a genuine improvement on telescopic forks…’
