Sport orientated shock absorbers also function as ideal all-rounders with reinforced springs and larger damper reservoirs. They offer a noticeable improvement in handling characteristics and are great value-for-money. Some Sport shock absorbers have an adjustable pre-load mechanism included to enable a better suspension setup. A potential set-back though is that these items possess no type approval to allow use in all European countries.
REPRO: The original PIAGGIO items are often no longer in production or available. Our reproduction items resemble the originals in shape and size and are available at a fair price. You also have the choice between differing shocker strengths and spring colours.
CARBONE: CARBONE shock absorbers are made in Italy and convince with their high quality of production. The STANDARD CARBONE are a little stiffer than the original PIAGGIO items and are an ideal replacement upgrade with an inconspicuous appearance. The SPORT CARBONE have an adjustable pre-load mechanism, so enabling an ideal setup for most circumstances. The SPORT versions are available in three different colours, according to model. The Hi-Tech series is made in a CNC optic. But they have no more technical features as the sport version.
RMS: The RMS shock absorbers are also available in both 'STANDARD' and 'SPORT' versions. Even the STANDARD versions are a noticeable improvement over the original PIAGGIO items. These items are also available with an adjustable pre-load mechanism.
