For the duration of the 2020 Redline track day season Motomeccanica will be offering a full suspension and bike set up service to all Redline participants who want to unlock the full potential of their machine.
Modern motorcycles are very powerful, some even have an ability to produce in excess of 200hp. This resultant power output exerts unimaginable forces to a motorcycle chassis and tyres. Add to this the equally powerful brakes and we have an incredible machine. The only thing controlling these forces and keeping the tyres on the ground is the suspension, often overlooked, sometimes neglected.
Modern suspension is highly advanced. Developments in racing has given production machines a level of sophistication equal to that of not so distance past factory bikes – only without the exotic materials.
The key to track speed isn’t simply more power, it’s the available level of grip and the ability to round the corner faster. Anyone can sit upright, tucked behind the screen, going full gas shifting the gears. Finding the right combination of geometry, spring rates, oil levels and damping settings is the key that will unlock the real potential. Suspension is often thought of as a dark art, WRONG!! It’s not witchcraft. With the correct rider approach, methodically working alongside knowledgeable, thinking technician, the results can be very satisfying.
