Using swingarm angle, chain pull and antisquat to maximize traction.

Figure 1: A typical sportbike layout, showing the relationship of the chain run and swingarm. The red arrows show the three forces that affect anti-squat: driving force, chain pull, and weight transfer. As sportbikes become more and more powerful, rear-end geometry plays a greater part in determining how well that power gets to the ground. […]

Tire size characteristics

When suspension limits the width of the tire, for any iteration we have to change wheel diameter. So some points to be remebered while deciding wheel size. Bigger wheel increases resistance to bending, hence leads to increse in reliability. Bigger wheels lead to higher steering effort and decrease in cornering performance which suffers ride quality.
