Öhlins has expanded its product line-up to include a new range of cost-conscious suspension parts for naked bikes, like the Ducati Monsters, Kawasaki ER-6n/f and Versys, Suzuki Bandits, SV and V-Strom, plus the Yamaha XJ6 and extensive Fazer family.

Kits starting at just £110 for a set of Öhlins fork springs tailored to your weight and there are 10 official Ohlins centres across the UK that you can go to for fitting.

Adjustable shock absorbers are also available - handy for track use, or just setting your bike up to take a pillion. They come with the famous yellow spring and start from £483.

Chris Witter, Business Development Manager, Öhlins Racing UK commented: “Öhlins has already established itself as the premium brand when it comes to race success, now we have taken this knowledge and expertise to create suspension products that deliver outstanding performance with a price tag to suit road riders.

"We don’t believe in compromising on quality and firmly believe that this new range will deliver all the benefits that customers would expect from an Öhlins product.”

More information on the new range of products can be found at www.ohlins.com or at Harris Performance Products’ stand (Hall 4, G200) at the Motorcycle Live show at Birmingham NEC - or check out the Yamaha stand to see an XJ6 fitted with an Ohlins shock.

Öhlins products are available through a newly appointed network of specialist Öhlins Centres.  These Centres are; BG Motorsport, Crescent Motorcycles, Dixon Racing Technology, FTR Suspension, Harris Performance Products Ltd, Kais Suspension Services, MH Racing Services, Mick Gardner Racing, P&H Motorcycles and Pro-Link Racing Services (N.I).
