Kawasaki Vaquero Shock
The new Kawasaki Vaquero has already caught the eye of more than a few hard core riders and customizers as well as the suspension go-to guys at Progressive.
Renowned for their line of high performance motorcycle shocks and fork spring kits, Progressive Suspension has given the Stylish Vaquero the one thing it lacked, a lower stance.
High performance front suspension is finally available for the intrepid Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycle models.
Progressive Suspension’s state of the art Monotube Fork Kit is designed for the performance oriented motorcycle rider who demands both handling and ride quality out of their Harley Softail street bike.
Your Harley-Davidson motorcycle can have the most impressive rear suspension setup in the world and it’s probably going to be a big disappointment to you unless it’s properly set up.
True high performance front suspension has finally made its way to the HD Touring line. Progressive Suspension’s state of the art Monotube Fork Kit represents the pinnacle of bagger front end handling. High performance specialty components replace the sloppy open bath damping found in HD forks. The kit features a set of gas charged Monotube dampers and a set of custom tuned fork springs.
From the company that perfected motorcycle air shocks, Progressive Suspension has just released the low cost Air Dragger!
By combining a machined aluminum air chamber, velocity sensitive, multi-stage valving and an internal progressive rate coil spring, they have once again elevated air suspension to a new level.
The clean and simple, full chrome body mounts to all late model touring bikes and is powered by a clever compressor unit that simply velcros into the back of a saddlebag.
As more motorcycle cruisers take to the open road, the focus of style over substance redirects from the later to the former. Traditionally, the Japanese have always had a better grasp of engineering than style when it comes to cruisers, though this gap has been narrowing annually. So, when taking on a Japanese cruiser that has an actual job to do—touring—things get a bit more interesting.
