Öhlins Racing revealed a new range of products for Hypersport, Adventure, Harley Davidson and Motocross machines at this year’s EICMA show in Milan. The iconic gold and yellow suspension units also featured on many of the ‘stars’ of the show, including the new Honda Fireblade SP.

The entire product range has been designed and developed using Öhlins years of experience – from offering maximum performance from the innovative MotoGP derived TTX GP shock, to providing ultimate comfort on the road with the new FKC 101 Fork Cartridge Kit for Harley Davidsons, the new range continues to offer the quality expect from the Swedish brand.

With unrivalled success in the premier class of motorcycle racing, the MotoGP World Championship, Öhlins has used this knowledge to develop its latest hypersport and sport bike shock absorber, the TTX GP. Featuring a number of considerable developments over its predecessor, the shock enables an even wider range of compression and rebound damping adjustment, with additional improvements to both precision and consistency of performance.

Öhlins also announced a pair of advanced Suspension Control Units, designed specifically for two of the world’s most powerful Superbike machines, the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and the 2013-2014 MV Agusta F4 RR. Both units offer a ‘plug and play’ fitment, working with the bikes original electronically controlled equipment to further enhance the machine's performance.

Öhlins also unveiled an upgrade kit for any 2010-2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200 owner. For machines that are fitted with Öhlins EC suspension as standard (Multistrada 1200 S), the new SCU is a simple ‘plug and play’ system that continuously optimises the motorcycles suspension by monitoring the speed, acceleration and other variable bike parameters. The SCU works with the existing riding modes (Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro), ensuring seamless integration and adds a semi-active function to the bike.

For owners of the base model of the Ducati Multistrada, Öhlins has also developed an upgrade kit that includes new forks, shock absorber, dashboard, and SCU and of course, everything required for installation, meaning they can receive the same benefits as the S model.

EICMA also saw the unveiling of an all-new Fork Cartridge Kit developed specifically for the Harley Davidson FLH/FLT Touring Bagger range. The FKC 101 kit has been specifically designed to offer high-end cartridge damping, ensuring riders receive maximum comfort and vehicle control, making riding on the road an ultra-smooth experience.

It was not just road products being unveiled at EICMA, as Öhlins revealed two exciting new Motocross applications for 2014 – the updated TTX44 rear shock, which has been developed in MXGP and Supercross, and a new cartridge kit for 85cc future stars.
