This powerful engine is mounted in a light weight and extremely rigid, chrome molybdenum steel tubular frame. The rear swing arm suspension uses a mono-arm for quick tire changing during competition. Showas shock absorbers and Brembo brake calipers are used at both ends. The 916 has a 2-stage adjustable caster offset system.
