Abstract:
The stability factor is widely used for four-wheel vehicles as an index representing the turning performance of a vehicle. Stability factor for two-wheel vehicles has been proposed as an indicator of cornering performance from the same way of thinking. In line traceability evaluation as a sensory evaluation item of motorcycles, the expressions of understeer and oversteer are sometimes used, but the relation with stability factor for two-wheel vehicles has not been investigated. In this paper, a test in which the slip angle characteristics of the front and rear tires were varied using a riding simulator was conducted, and the correlation between the stability factor and the rider evaluation was investigated to derive an index showing the line traceability.
