Does anybody have data for center of gravity heights of motorcycles? No matter the model. There really isn't much info on the net about the subject. Please share them if it is without a rider onboard. 

 

Thank you

A bit surprising to me is that by lowering the CoG from 800 mm to 500 mm, using 160mm wide tyres on average (120 front and 200 rear), to corner at a speed that demand 30 degree lean with the taller CoG would require only an additional 3 degrees of lean, up to 33 degrees.
