débattement des suspensions


Explanation:
Je dois dire que je suis perplexe. Displacement veut dire mouvement, déplacement, débattement (en mécanique).

Ne s'agirait-il pas plutôt du "height displacement" débattement en hauteur des suspensions qui faciliterait la tenue de route de cet engin ?

La répartition des poids est certes un élément important de la maniabilité et de la tenue de route, mais cela s'apelle weight distribution à ma connaissance. Nul n'est cependant infaillible.

répartition de poids


Explanation:
Bizarre. En tant que proprio d'une jolie petite Harley Davidson Sportster 883, pour moi, "displacement" parle du moteur - voir ci-dessous. Est-ce que vous travaillez à partir d'une traduction? "Weight distribution" peut-être, mais "displacement"? Bizarre...


Displacement : with reference to motorbikes, this can be in reference to the number of « cc ».

http://www.midnight-pass.com/dibfolmotspe.html (folding motorbike)

ENGINE
Horsepower .......................1.3 @ 3800 rpm
Displacement.................................... 49.9 cc
Generator....................................12V - 60W
Transmission......................Torque converter

Kawasaki rode the wave generated by what later came to be called the "Izanagi Boom" and, in September 1966, the company proudly announced its W1, a motorcycle with a displacement of 650cc - at the time of its launch, this was the largest displacement bike on the Japanese market.
