I'm curious as to whether the single sided fork and rear triangle can save weight, or indeed even if that was the design purpose.

Presumably the same degree of strength is required as a minimum, probably more to contain the asymmetric loading, so I don't see how any weight can be saved in the amount of structural material.

However the design does lead to a more compact fold, which I presume was the main reason for the design.
