Single sided swing arm means the wheel can be removed without difficulty.

I rode a BMW K75S for over a decade, and the single side swing arm was flawless. A single spring damper can mean it is more stable, too.

By the way, the front fork on the K75S was sprung on both sides - but damped only on one side. There was a robust fork brace, and axle, and this also worked very well.
Sincerely, Neil
