Ohlins Lite Shocks: HP Suspension

Performance Motorcycle Shocks

Ohlins USA is now offering sport bike riders the heralded Ohlins high-performance brand at a much lower price, with its new line of Öhlins Lite Shocks.

These units are designed to fulfill the suspension needs of street riders caught between concerns of performance and price.

Designed and manufactured with the same materials, tolerances and high-performance parameters of all Ohlins suspension components, each Öhlins Lite Shock comes with a handy rebound adjustment wheel at the shock’s bottom, and the classic two-wrench preload adjusting system.

Slim and trim, without a piggyback or remote reservoir as required for high-end or racetrack applications, the Ohlins Lite Shock provides exclusive Ohlins performance for just $617 MSRP.

As a cost savings, the Lite shocks are without Ohlins trendsetting, knob-style, hydraulic preload adjuster.

Fitments for the Lite Shocks include motorcycle models from seven manufacturers: BMW F650GS, F800GS/R/ST, R1100GS, R1150GS, R1200GS/Short/Adventure, R1150R, R1150RS, and R1200RT; the full range of Ducati Monster from 600 to 1000/S4; Honda VRF800FI; Kawasaki ER6/ER6 Low, Versys, Z750, Z1000; Suzuki DL650 V-Strom, DL1000 V-Strom, GSF 1200/1250 Bandit, SFV650 Gladius, SV650; Triumph Tiger 1050; Yamaha FZ1, FZ8.

To order an Ohlins Lite Shock, or for more information, please contact Ohlins USA or your local Öhlins certified dealer or service center.
