The perimeter steel-tube frame supports the engine from above and behind, and directly connects the steering head to the swingarm pivot in sportbike fashion. That pivot, incidentally, is mounted coaxially with the countershaft sprocket so chain torque (yes, it's chain-driven) should have no effect on rear-suspension action. There are no downtubes, which would seem to make the engine vulnerable to rock damage, though a skidplate is fitted. The hlins shock is tilted forward as on a KTM and looks to be linkageless, though there is a rocker-shaped piece attached to the swingarm-trained eyes suggest that's just to alter the position of the lower shock mount for testing. That's all we can discern for now.
