Here in the UK, Ducati have announce the addition of an active suspension system called Skyhook for 2013. There are also stories that the front fairing has been redesigned to significantly reduce the wind noise problems...

I just spoke to my dealer in México, they say Multistrada ST and PP will no longer use Ohlins forks, it will still be an electronic suspention but no more Ohlins. They also told me about new windshield design. Lets just wait until EICMA at milan on November.

Is this like the one on the new Beemer HP s1000rr, that supposedly adjusts damping instantly/electronically as per road conditions? I can't see how that would work other than if it was telepathic, because otherwise it will *always respond too late* IMO.

These types of magneto-electric suspension have been on cars for a while and they seem to work well (and fast).

I'll be very surprised if they don't ship with Ohlins. Still, stranger things have happened.

Maserati had it on cars 10 years ago....and now I think Mazda is advertising the use of it.

Is that "sky hook" or something different? Whatever the approach/technology, they still only "respond" to changing road surfaces, no matter how fast the response, like conventional suspension. I'd like to try a bike with this type of suspension back to back on the same road surface at the same speed etc. against a bike with good conventional suspension and see if it's anything more than marketing hype.
