Killinger und Freund motorcycle

From "Killinger und Freund Motorcycle":

"In 1935 a group of five German engineers named Killinger and Freund from Munich started to design a more streamlined and modified version of the German Megola front-wheel drive motorcycle that had won many motorcycle races in the 1920s."
Apparently it was quite successful in pre-WWII race meets. I wonder if the rear wheel has more tendency to drift in turns when it's being dragged along behind rather than pushing the whole shebang.
