I think a titanium swing arm would be a nice touch on a special edition. Corrosion resistant Magnesium does sound like a good aluminum replacement though.

Those Aussies are smart fellas!

John Britten still easily has my vote for the most creative engineer the moto world has ever seen.

Titanium is the way to go in my opinion. I am sure it will add to the price tag but the quality is undeniable.

Seconded! Just recently watched the documentary on him and his creation. Simply incredible.

MV already makes a Magnesium swing arm for the F4. Its on one of the Specialty F4 models. I have seen it at Fast by Ferracci showroom. Also, BST makes a carbon fiber swing arm for the Ducati 1098/1198 and I think? for the F4.

Check out Bellisimoto.com Look at some of the parts they offer. They have some incredible titanium, magnesium, and carbon parts for quite a few bikes.

As you said, Titanium would be too expensive and it’s heavier than an Alloy swinging arm, hence why nobody uses one in MotoGP ( as far as I know).

Yeah we know.. But this is a new magnesium alloy mix that does away with the old issue of material oxidization suffered by normal magnesium composition parts.

I think someone on the forum previously inquired about an MV carbon swinging arm from BST and they replied, there wouldn’t be anything in the pipe line because of the low demand levels.

Shame because that could be the best solution to weight reduction, but also the most difficult to get right, due to the design flexibility needed to be built into the finished product.


PS: Britten also gets my vote for the Worlds best exponent of “Necessity is the mother of invention “ award.
