FIG. 3 is a right side view showing the arrangement of the vehicle body frame 4, the fuel tank 19 and the brake system 30. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken along line IV-IV in FIG.
  As shown in FIG. 3, the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 is attached to the vehicle body frame 4 so that at least a part thereof protrudes upward from the vehicle body frame 4. For this reason, if the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 is moved from the upper part of the vehicle body frame 4 toward the vehicle body frame 4 in a state where the fuel tank 19 is not attached, even if the hand is not inserted into the narrow and deep space, The hydraulic control unit 33 can be attached to the vehicle body frame 4. The structure and method for attaching the hydraulic control unit 33 to the vehicle body frame 4 will be described later.

In this way, it is possible to avoid the fuel supply pipe 20 from interfering with the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 while protecting the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 with the fuel tank 19. Moreover, since the intake device 16 extends rearward from the rear upper surface of the engine 15, the fuel tank 19 can be connected to the intake device 16 without complicatedly bending the fuel supply pipe 20. Therefore, protection of the hydraulic pressure control unit 33, avoidance of interference between the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 and the fuel supply pipe 20, and shortening of the pipe length of the fuel supply pipe 20 can be achieved at the same time.
  As described above, the motorcycle 1 is a full cowl type, and the cowl 24 covers the side of the body frame 4, the side of the engine 15, and the side of the rear portion of the fuel tank 19. The side of the hydraulic pressure control unit 33 is also covered with the cowl 24 together with the vehicle body frame 4 and the rear part of the fuel tank 19. Therefore, the hydraulic control unit 33 can be protected by the cowl 24 as well.
