New for 2015 – Öhlins unveil Scooter Performance Line

Öhlins launch for 2015 an all new Scooter Performance Line, giving owners of ‘twist and go’ machines high quality performance to tackle circuits, twisty roads and city streets.

Available for machines from 125 to 600cc this new range features products for both mono and twin shock models. These items follow the good reception to the existing Honda MSX125/Grom shock and cartridge kit.

The STX is based on well proven technology that Öhlins has developed over many years. The shock is available for both mono and twin shock machines and is a massive step up in terms of performance and comfort for these machines.

The S36 is a classic design available in emulsion, ‘dividing piston’ and piggyback versions (depending on application) which can be specified with a number of different damping adjustment options- with or without length adjustment.

Popular models including the Honda MSX, Forza and PCX 150 are in stock now, with other applications being developed for machines such as the Yamaha X-Max range.

These shocks follow the existing Performance Line of affordable Öhlins shocks which have been developed for Naked and ‘all rounder’ machines, not usually associated with performance upgrades.

Robert Brinkmark, Öhlins Product Manager Motorcycles commented;

“Following the success of our MSX shock, we have now developed a range of scooter products utilising the ‘Performance Line’ strategy of affordable suspension for non-sports models.

These machines really benefit from properly damped suspension, the difference is extremely positive in terms of performance, ride quality and shock lifetime.”
