A shock absorber has an inner tube embedded in a steering stem shaft and an outer tube provided slidably. A front fork is fixed to a lower end of the outer tube, and the inner tube is fixed to an upper end of the steering stem shaft. The steering stem shaft is provided with a guide trench extending in a telescoping direction and having a long hole shape. A roller bearing is provided on an outer circumferential surface of the outer tube and is inserted into the guide trench movably along the guide trench. As a result, relative movement between the steering stem shaft and the outer tube in the telescoping direction is permitted while relative rotation is restricted.

An engine case includes bearings, an oil pump, lubricating oil passages, and a relief device. The bearings rotatably support a crankshaft and a camshaft. The oil pump and the lubricating oil passages are configured to pressure-feed lubricating oil to the bearings. The relief device is configured to adjust a pressure of the lubricating oil. The lubricating oil passages include main lubricating oil passages. The main lubricating oil passages include communication portions linearly formed with extending portions. The communication portions communicate between the respective bearings of the crankshaft and the camshaft from outside the engine case. The extending portions extend from outside the engine case to the bearing of the camshaft. The relief device is disposed having a relief valve and a relief hole at the extending portions.

A motor has a motor gear installed in a motor output shaft to rotate in synchronization. A gearshift actuation transmission mechanism has a gear shift cam-side actuator gear directly engaged with a gear shift cam to transmit rotation. The gear shift cam-side actuator gear meshes with the motor gear directly or indirectly by interposing another actuator gear to transmit the rotation from the motor to the gear shift cam.

A vehicle transmission system includes a shift cam rotated by rotary power from an output torque of a gearshift actuator motor to change a gearshift position and a rotational position holding mechanism configured to hold a rotational position of the shift cam. The rotational position holding mechanism has a rotatable member that is rotated in synchronization with the shift cam and has a plurality of indented portions along a rotational direction and a stopper member inserted into the indented portion of the rotatable member to hold a rotational position of the rotatable member. An unindented portion between the plurality of indented portions on the outer circumferential surface of the rotatable member is formed on a circular arc curved surface concentric on a rotation center line.
