designed the Mazda MX-5, a famous little convertible. It uses backbone frame that supports the engine, as well as an engine mount that is easy to remove, which allows for an easier maintenance. 

The damping technology is adopted from off road bikes, which was very rare for standard motorcycles at that time. This improves the bike's ride quality at uneven roads.
