New ÍHLINS products for GSX-R600 & GSX-R750Fri, 25 Mar 2011 00:00:00 -0700
ÖHLINS Racing has completed final testing and is now ready to launch a complete range of suspension upgrade kits for the 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 and GSX-R750
The GSX-R600 comes equipped with Big Piston Forks (BPF) as standard but Öhlins recommends fitting its NIX30 fork kit or pressurised system. Aside from the perfermance improvements, these systems are much quicker and more simple to adjust with compression damping on the left fork leg and rebound on the right.
The Öhlins TTX36 rear shock is the perfect accompaniment for the GSX-R600 and 750 and uses MotoGP developed Twin Tube technology, improving feedback by utilising positive pressure on both the compression and rebound stroke of the shock.
The forks and shock can be interchanged between the 2011 GSX-R 600 & 750.
The NIX30 fork kit costs £871.62 plus VAT while the pressurised fork kit is £1911.05 plus VAT. Both will only be available from an authorised Öhlins Centre and require Öhlins springs and fitting by an authorised Öhlins technician. The TTX36 shock costs £1015.43 plus VAT and is also only available from an authorised Öhlins Centre.
