Very pretty engineering exercise, should reduce nose-dive on heavy braking,
looks useless for low speed tight turns but likely fine for the track.



... this concept appears to have about one inch of usable suspension travel.

The Suzuki was never more than a concept although it apparently did have an engine and was ride able. (as was the 'NUDA' which had upright steering levers - see Tony Foal BMW) The Yamaha is going to need a LOT of work as the engineers there found people wanted some 'dive' to get feedback so some dive was built into the system (which pretty much defeated the object of hub centre steering) I remember reading an article about it way back when.
General gist was, it's so different you need to re-learn how to ride
