Hossack Front End, Why doesn't every bike have this?

Came across a video about the Hossack front end for motorcycles and cannot figure out why every bike isn't made like this. It seems cheaper, safer, and requires less maintenance (fork fluid etc.).

Does BMW have exclusive rights? I don't think any of their current bikes have Hossack front ends.

Here is a link to the video, if you can stand Jay Leno...

This does seem like a good idea, wonder why it isn't standard equipment.


Those who say money can't buy happines haven't bought A VERSYS.
