From 1930 on the Saroléa type numbering system changed in that the type number  started with the model year,  So the 36 S was model  S of 1936.  That was the 500 cc OHV, the extension -6 refers to the 600 model.  
Saroléa introduced the sloping engine for the 1931 model range.  
Many factories designed machines with forward leaning engines for several reasons:  from a technical point of view the machines could be built lower, so the road holding improved.  
The accessibility of the cylinder head also got better in many cases.  
But the esthetical  approach was also important: many machines looked so much better with an inclined engine.
