more aerodynamic than a bike so likely better

did you mean front wheels like the following.

This was an industrial design student final exam concept model based on Norton Commando. The students name was Simpson but I dont recal much else. Its an up and down tandem but the rear was very cramped. 1/2 wheel steer and proper looking wheel spats.

this might be a handy resource in working with mc engines:
