ÖHLINS CELEBRATES ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT PARTNERSHIP AND SPECIAL PRODUCTS AT TRIUMPH LIVE
September 6 2012.


With flagship models the Daytona 675R and Speed Triple R boasting full Öhlins suspension as standard, the company linked up with Triumph once again at its unique Triumph Live event at Mallory Park.

As the quintessentially British marque celebrated its 110th anniversary in style with on track action, stunt shows, new models, accessories, factory tours and bands such as the legendary Kaiser Chiefs, a casual observer would have noticed more hints of 'gold' among the massed machinery in the bike parks.

Not only do both the universally acclaimed models feature uprated suspension, Öhlins showcased its upcoming product for the adventure focused Tiger 800 and XC models- a full spec NIX30 cartridge kit. This kit, designed for the new model, has been designed to give a 'plush' ride on all terrains and from tracks to motorway. With separate compression and rebound damping adjustment utilising a 'big piston' design, riders will be sure to enjoy the increased responsiveness and riding comfort. The Adventure bike market is certainly a growth sector for Öhlins, with increased interest and new model applications.

Triumph stuntman Kevin Carmichael also took time out of his Speed Triple R routine to visit the Öhlins stand to check out the other suspension products on display. Öhlins Racing UK staff also enjoyed their two days at the event talking to Triumph customers, giving advice and explaining the suspension options on offer.

Chris Witter, Business Development Manager, Öhlins Racing UK commented: "We again enjoyed great interaction with Triumph owners at the fantastic Triumph Live event. With our suspension on both the Daytona R and Speed Triple R, we now have a great partnership with the brand and look to continue supporting that relationship wherever we can."

Öhlins suspension products are now featured as Genuine Triumph accessories for many of Triumph's range, including the Daytona 675, Street Triple, Speed Triple and Tiger. The Öhlins products were developed to provide increased control and performance for riders of Triumph motorcycles.

Öhlins suspension units have been developed for each individual Triumph machine and have been thoroughly tested to exacting standards. For Öhlins it is a perfect market-place for its technology and a natural choice for customers of such a prestige motorcycle brand. For Triumph the policy of working with the industry's finest aftermarket experts to develop products specifically for its motorcycles and customers displays its commitment to quality and performance.
