KRV adopts Bike’s independent swing-arm design, separates the engine and transmission system, moves the center of gravity forward, reduces the burden of the rear suspension, reduces the “unsprung weight”, makes the rear shock response more sensitive, and greatly improves the safety of sports and control.
