If you’re talking about the rg500, the rear shocks are laid down nearly as low as possible so that the angle change on compression is larger than if they were more upright. This gives a progressive spring and damping rate.

Interesting how they mover the shift cam higher in the cases, better ground clearance for the front chambers maybe?
