A lot of work for better handling and response....but how much better handling and response?

Isn't all that running gear going to make it kinda top heavy? I'm not an engineer so what do I know.

That long swing arm is going to make all the Busa guys go wobbly

It would have been nice if they included a measurement for L3. If you pull in the front and lengthen the swing arm how much shorter is it? Would lengthening the swing arm not generally tend to increase understeer?

Ha, they got it wrong ;) (maybe) if the motor is reversed it's pretty much what I was explaining to a corporate guy when I worked in FAST (Factory Authorized Suzuki Training)
My idea was to have the head pretty much where the rear sub-frame is for mass centralisation and allow radiators to be in 'conventional' position. Water-cooled single or 4~500cc parallel twin with turbo or supercharger and 3 shaft transmission (like on ~1980's Maico's)
