“Öhlins Racing’s origins in motocross racing over 40 years ago paved the way for the company’s success in the realm of automotive racing suspension. It has been an outstanding partner for Turn 14 Distribution in the automotive space, so we are excited to offer its powersports products to our dealers,” said Alex Lesslie, Divisional Purchasing Manager, Turn 14 Distribution.
In 1976, Öhlins Racing produced its first racing suspension for a motocross bike, according to the company. Since then, it has remained a racing suspension company, improving performance across the full range of motorcycles, from off-road adventure bikes to track-focused hypersports machines.
Its premium components can be found supporting riders in the Baja 1000 and MotoGP, and officials said the development that fuels these racing efforts directly translates to Öhlins Racing’s aftermarket products and OEM components for road-going motorcycles.
Öhlins Racing is committed to providing balanced performance through products like its real-time electronically controlled suspension and direct-fit adjustable shocks, officials added. The result is on-road compliance that reduces rider fatigue and high-speed response that inspires confidence around the circuit.
This means all types of riders, including Harley-Davidson long-haulers and BMW Motorrad racing enthusiasts alike benefit from the technology and quality control invested into each Öhlins Racing application.
