When talking motorcycles, the most commonly noted aspects that are touched upon are stuff like horsepower, torque, 0-60mph times, and cubic capacity, and we’re guilty of it too. What goes overlooked, though, is perhaps one of the most key components that holds the entire motorcycle together - the chassis, also known as the frame.
