I'll bet it works. Looks to me that the brake calipers are somehow fixed to the center hub/axle. It might be possible to machine an opening in the center of the hub such that an attachment point to the stationary axle is possible. Looks to me that's what is being done here.

Another tip-off that this works is the brake line. Note how it passes through the center hub area. That's pretty neat.

Looks like the wheel halves bolt together through the rim, allowing access to the rotor.
Very odd, don't really see any benefits over the buell-type system.

This shows much more promise: http://www.reverserotatingrotors.com/

I agree that it looks like a similar braking system to Buell's zero torsional load system, but with the rotor and caliper fixed in the center of the wheel instead of outside to one side. I assume they believe their is benefit to it being centered instead of offset to one side? Looks more like "bling" than anything else to me without any data.....

I showed someone that pic the other night and thier guess was that the caliper were attached to the hub via some sort of clutch system which appears to be a possibility as he said the lever would need more travel and when we looked at it it appears that it is set futher away.

Seems to me that the calipers would be fixed to a center hub and pits would require change of wheel with fresh calipers/pads already in place. If you look closely the center of the axle is the same color as the calipers which suggests to me that the brakes are fixed to center hub.
