Yes it does (as in I would like one)  but "Training"? Really?  I doubt it very much. Circuit familiarisation at best  ::)

Actually I would say that all that hanging onto that simulator without the help of the G forces is really hard work. I see a lot of sweat on his brow. Hehe  ;D

I agree Nick. Only good for track familiarisation I'd have thought.  ;)

Seen a few vids of this and they use real footage on the screen.. So does the bike you sit on lean with the bike on screen? Or do you try and copy the bike on screen?  ???

If that is the case then it is strange to call it a simulator, surely?  :-\

Maybe it is giving him a lot more feedback than we realise, but I reckon he nicked it from Yarmouth Pier  ;D

In some videos of it they put matts each side.. You can flick from one side to the other quite agressively slamming your knee down!  ;D ;D looks cool because it responds to counter steering and your feet stay on the pegs!

If it works as a control device......  :o 8)

Not sure what you mean there Hawk: in the "simulator' you don't have lateral and longitudinal accelerations, but gravity is the same as on a bike on a track, so hanging should be just as tiresome.

I gotta agree with BOBPPPPPPP as the bike picks itself up under acceleration to some degree. Forward momentum seems to take some of the needed physical input from the rider away compared to if the bike was just sitting still. I had to take a test to be a medical rider and part of the test is balancing the bike at very slow speeds with it lent over, impossible if standing still, but just that slight forward motion made it possible. This is all this machine is, an exercise machine, it is NOT a controller in any way.

One hell of a work out though.

Yes indeed Max..... What I mean is that you can use the real G forces in real life to help move the bike and move around on the bike. When those forces are not there I'm sure it is a lot more work to move the bike around. But yes.... The forces in real life are a work out too, so I'm not saying it is easy even in real life. Lol  ;D

But then I've not had a go on one of these simulators, so I don't know for sure?  :)

But I think in the "simulator" above the bike moves by itself, it's not you moving it.
It's just a passive thing that "follows" a pre-recorded evolution: you just have to hang on it.
It's meant for physical training (and maybe track familiarization).

I just wrote to them to find out more as part of the design is similar to a motion system I am working on. It is missing a DOF or 3 but it is on the right track. I know with my MTE units it would only take an hour to make all the controls work in GPB and any other sim/game but would have to work on the steering. I like the concept (as its like mine lol) its just very expensive so exclusive to who can afford it. Thats what I am trying to work away from.

It seems that this bike is only something like what we have for old arcade games but it's not a controller and it isn't linked to the TV. It's only a plastic thing with a TV showing a real footage. The sound is the Yamaha M1 sound from MotoGP13, which seems to be added for the public video.

This video shows how it is NOT really working as a controller. LISTEN and watch the lassies hands and feet!!!......
How is she NOT crashing and and and???

As I wrote in another post, I just visited the company in Manlleu, Spain.
I tried the CKU-28 and it's pretty impressive.

Actually, there were no counter streering on the one I tried, but as I understood the new version have (or will have) it.
So yes it was a bit hard to move it (sweaty after 2 laps of Jerez track  :D ) but still lot of fun!

Also, there is no relation between the video and the actual device, but the company and Milestone are working on adapting CKU-28 and MotoGP game.

I told the boss about GP Bikes (of course  8) ) cause I think both together could be amazing!

I will try to make a post about the whole device with pics I took and infos I asked.
