Öhlins increases TTX line up for sport bikes

To complement the recently launched high end TTX GP shock, Öhlins Racing now unveils a RT (Road & Track) shock for the hypersport segment.

The new TTX RT unit comes in a high specification but with a more affordable pricetag.

The new TTX RT model is available for most modern Hypersport machines and is designed for road and trackday riders. The Road and Track shock differentiates itself from the race focused GP model to give riders more choice to upgrade their machine.

Based on the ultra popular TTX36 model, the new shock has a traditional C-spanner type pre load adjustment, plus has the advantage of rebound and compression adjustment being easily accessible on top of the cylinder head.

New, improved standard settings are built into the shock as the world renowned Öhlins R&D engineers have fine tuned the unit. The shock has again been designed around the ultra efficient TTX twin tube technology to eliminate cavitation, and was developed in the ultra competitive world of MotoGP

Technical Highlights:

  • TTX-technology – no cavitation risk!
  • Wide adjuster range
  • Completely separated functions for rebound and compression damping
  • All adjustments are done on the cylinder head of the shock absorber
  • Length adjustable for most models

Robert Brinkmark, Öhlins Product Manager Motorcycles commented

“We have had customer feedback and saw great demand for a Road & Track style product for the hypersport market, so we are very pleased to launch the new RT as a competitively priced product yet still derived from our race winning TTX technology.”

The RT and GP shocks complement each other to create a complete hypersports line-up satisfying the needs of road riders, track-day enthusiasts right up to the race winning Superbike teams.”
