The invention relates to a two-wheeled vehicle with rear-wheel suspension, comprising a frame (602) with at least one frame tube (603, 604, 605), a swingarm assembly (620) mounted on the frame (602) for the purpose of suspending a rear wheel (613), a linear spring/damper element, and a transmission mechanism (630) that is functionally connected to both the spring/damper element and to the swingarm assembly (620). The spring/damper element is received in a receiving chamber inside the frame tube (603). The transmission mechanism (630) is designed and mounted on the frame (602) such that it transmits a force between the spring/damper element and the swingarm assembly (620) by means of a rotational axis that extends through an axial opening in the frame tube (603). Arranging the spring/damper element inside the frame (602) avoids soiling. The rotational axis of the transmission mechanism (630) can also be designed to have relatively small dimensions in order to achieve a high degree of frame stability. In addition, the rotational axis can be arranged at different points in the frame and the spring/damper element can be housed in different regions of the frame in order for the transmission mechanism to be combinable with conventional rear-wheel suspension systems.

The first brewing-module part has a head (30) with lateral guide means (31), which define a first track (33) and a second track (36) for a capsule collar. The first brewing-module part (3) also forms a rest (35), which delimits movement of the capsule in the downward direction when the capsule collar is located on the first track. The lateral guide means (31) are connected rigidly to the head, and the second brewing-module part has a restoring means (61), which is designed to act on the capsule collar (21), and to move the latter into the second track (36), when the brewing chamber is opened.
