MX Bikes supports 6 types of rear suspension geometry.

There are 3 main categories:
1) "Classic". The shock is linked to the chassis and swingarm directly.
Examples: Ducati Monster, KTM 450 EXC, vintage bikes.

2) Linkage suspension. There are two additional elements: rocker and rod.
Example:

The rocker is blue, the rod red.

2a) "Linkage Rocker Chassis". The shock is linked to the chassis and the rocker to the chassis.
Examples: Ducati Panigale V2, Kawasaki Uni-Trak.

2b) "Linkage Rod Chassis". The shock is linked to the chassis and the rod to the chassis.
Example: Honda Pro-Link, stock MSM bikes.

2c) "Linkage Rocker Swingarm". The shock is linked to the swingarm and the rocker to the chassis.
Examples: Ducati Desmosedici, Suzuki Full Floater.

2d) "Linkage Rod Swingarm". The shock is linked to the swingarm and the rod to the chassis.
Example: Honda Unit Pro-Link.

3) "Hardtail". There is no suspension and the rear wheel is connected directly to the chassis.
Example: speedway bike.
