What seems to be a front suspension is actually a full suspension!!

1st Version [Fig.1]: Note that the weight of the rider is transfered through the saddle to the rear wheel frame which compressess the spring (assuming that the front wheel is on the ground).However if the front wheel runs over a bump the vibration would shock the riders arms...therefore the steering equipement are transfered under the saddle.

2nd Version [Fig.2]: Now the bike has normal steering bar, but there is the addition of an extra front suspension. Now the bike is real full suspension bike but the design is working in a different way. Despite the fact that there is a dedicated front suspension, the rear (middle) suspension will also absorb some vibrations of the front wheel (causing some vibrations to the driver's arms).
