In terms of the suspension, the motorcycles are based on a completely newly developed concept .The bridge frame integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a load-bearing element and is made of deepdrawn and welded sheet steel parts. Front wheel control is taken care of by an upside-down telescopic fork, while the rear wheel is guided by a double-sided swinging arm with central suspension strut. The bolt-on steel rear frame has also been newly developed in order to create a visually short and slim rear. The short underfloor silencer renders a typical athletic look with a free-standing rear wheel.
