Friday bike

OK, it's a day late but I've been working away.

AWD Invex 998

I know very little about this bike other than one article I found, but it's a two wheel drive sports bike. I have come across two wheel drive offroaders, but this is the first time I've seen it attempted on a road bike.
If it can be made to work, I can see a number of advantages - power to both wheels means harder acceleration, more controlled engine braking, and less 'rise and fall' of the suspension. There are plenty of AWD cars, so why not a bike? Interesting to see whether or not this can be developed into a practical system.
