Default Honda TMX 155

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I am a retired American and have been riding over 50 years. I plan to buy a Honda TMX 155 in January. I have a question though. Is the motor on a TMX part of the frame or does it sit in the frame? I can't tell by looking at photos but I think I see bolts at the bottom at the one down tube. If so, the engine is part of the frame. Does anybody know for sure? Thanks.

The single downtube bolts to the front of the engine and doesn't carry around under the engine to the swingarm. I guess that makes the engine a "semi-stressed" frame member.

Give the power output of the 125, the frame design is adequete for it's purpose.

Its.......A FACT!
