When it's a Brudeli Leanster which can lean into turns like a 2 wheeler. Yamaha just bought the patents for this technology. What do you guys think? Yes or no?

Brudeli, a lesser known company, actually invented a novel setup for 3-wheeled vehicles. Instead of two sets of twin USD forks like Yamaha has used in the past with its 3-wheeled Niken, Brudeli employs two transverse bars on top of each other. These attach to a pair of shocks, which allows for the center of gravity to move with the rider. It gives the rider greater control when leaning into a turn and lessens the chance for a wreck. It also looks downright cool as a rider leans into a corner.
