Öhlins launches H- D ‘Blackline’ range
ÖHLINS has moved away from its characteristic yellow and gold designs for the launch of its Blackline range of products for Harley-Davidson applications.
The new Öhlins Blackline shocks are available for H-D twin shock machines. Available in ‘dividing piston’ and piggyback versions, the shocks can be ordered with a number of different damping adjustment options, with or without length adjustment.
For the front end, the FKC fork cartridge kit has been designed to offer a high-end cartridge damping system for FLH and FLT models. Using an 8mm steel shaft, an aluminium damper tube and 25mm pistons, the system features Öhlins’ NIX technology; rebound damping in one leg, and compression damping in the other - maximising the damping that is available within the confined diameter of the fork legs.
Robert Brinkmark, Öhlins Product Manager Motorcycles says, “Developing Öhlins shocks for the Harley-Davidson market has been an important focus for us and we are proud to launch the first of many products for Harley-Davidson bikes. The focus has been on riding comfort and high quality for these shocks to further improve the ride feeling. The new striking design is also a result of our increased focus for the custom market.
“Our range of twin shocks offer an unsurpassed ride for these often heavier, fully loaded motorcycles, giving all day comfort in the saddle, crucial for riders of these machines.”
