This little motorcycle, released in 1995, is extremely similar to set 8810 - Alpha Racer released only 4 years earlier.  It is so similar, in fact, that I was able to use the same computer images of the internals and merely change the color.  Even the set number differs by only a single digit.  The primary differences involve the lack of a kickstand on this model, the addition of a windshield, and the presence of stickers.

This set uses a head tube element to support the fork. It also features dual rear shocks supporting a swing arm type suspension.

This is one of only a handful of Technic sets to include an actual transparent windshield. More typically, windshields are "implied" by constructing only the outer frame. This set, like the other new Tech Play sets from 1995, makes considerable use of stickers. In this case, the stickers are printed on transparent stock that resists UV light degradation quite well.

Steering

The front fork can be steered using the handle bars.  The fork pivots around an axle which passes through the head tube part.  The handlebar angle and is fixed using toothed connectors.  The fork rake angle is set by the head tube.

The front down tubes are solid and have no suspension.

Suspension

The rear wheel is attached to a swing arm supported by a pair of spring loaded shock absorbers.  They are very stiff and have ample travel for a model of this size.

Wheels and Tires

This set uses two 13x24 Model Team wheels and tires.
