So, the title says it all. Surprisingly, a Google search on this hasn't turned much up for me - what are the factors that give a motorcycle good low-speed maneuverability? A couple things come to mind right off the bat:
- Wheelbase: A shorter axle-to-axle difference means the bike can make tighter turns.
- CoG: I don't know this, but I'd guess a low center of gravity means the bike doesn't want to tip over nearly as much at low speeds.
- Tire pressure?
- Characteristics of engine power delivery?
- Bike weight?
- Angle of front wheel/tire at full lock?
- Steering geometry (rake/trail)?
- Suspension characteristics?
- What else?
As you can see, I have ideas of things that affect maneuverability, but don't necessarily know how they do.
