Looking at the two rigs above, it looks like they both have quite limited suspension travel. That's probably fine for a street rig, but for dual sport or off-road, you would definitely want a system that gives more travel than those. The other negatives are the un-sprung and overall weight. A leading link setup looks much better in those respects. Again, for anything going where there are bumps, weight is definitely bad. The one thing that I like about the center hub system is that the tire stays level while turning. That's definitely nice if you have a wide and flat profile tire up front.
