Öhlins Racing unveils the Öhlins Smart EC performance steering damper for the Yamaha YZF-R1M, suitable for use on the road and racetrack. Yamaha’s YZF-R1M already features the most technologically-advanced electronic suspension system ever produced for a production roadbike, with forks, shock and software all supplied by Öhlins. Now, R1M owners can complete their bike’s handling package, with the new Öhlins Smart EC steering damper upgrade.
Since 1992, Öhlins offers a steering damper for motocross, enduro and off-road. Since a couple of years Öhlins has launched a whole new concept, which works as well as its former model, but has a completely new design. The new design lets the steering damper mount easier on several models for motocross, enduro, and off-road. This way Öhlins can offer an extensive application list for this steering damper.
