GET­TING CLEVER TO COPE WITH COST-CUT­TING

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Insurance -

Money-sav­ing rules for key com­po­nents have not halted de­vel­op­ment in the WSB pad­dock this win­ter, with Öh­lins bring­ing their new 2016 WSB forks to Por­ti­mao for both Du­cati and Yamaha to try. They are de­signed to im­prove the out­right per­for­mance un­der ex­treme rac­ing use thanks to a new damp­ing sys­tem and over­all design, but still com­ply with rules on pric­ing that saw the Swedish sup­plier forced to drop their previous ‘through rod’ tech­nol­ogy.

The 2016 units will be ac­ces­si­ble to all teams who opt to use Öh­lins – which is tra­di­tion­ally most of the pad­dock.
