Whereas some cast wheels, graphite, composite and the magnesium parts are also used. The gyroscopic effect is nothing but applied to the motorcycle and it is rotated at the higher speed and at the same time it also improves the stability. The other important factors applied here are the inertia and the steering geometry. The coil springs support the front wheel suspension and the shock absorbers are used in the rear wheel springs. Here are tires are the smaller one and it is concerned to the center of gravity without any loss of traction.
