MANALAPAN, N.J. - Aftermarket suspension is something with which many dealers seem to have a love/hate relationship.
On one hand, high-end suspension components are high-dollar items that can give a high-performance image to a dealer along with profits. But suspension can also be a pain, as researching and ordering the correct parts from the myriad of available options can be troublesome.
Wouldn’t it be great if a respected suspension company created a simple to order, all-inclusive kit of the parts you need to upgrade a bike?
Well, your question is answered thanks to EPM Performance Imports, the exclusive U.S. importer of Hyperpro motorcycle suspension parts.
The new Street Box ($699) combines several parts developed by Netherlands suspension specialist Hyperpro to create a single SKU that offers a matched suspension upgrade individually tuned for one of over 200 applications ranging from 1981 through the latest 2104 machines.
Each Street Box starts with a 460-series emulsion shock adjustable for preload and rebound. Matched to the progressive shock spring are a pair of Hyperpro’s rising-rate fork springs. Included in the kit is the correct weight fork oil, grease to facilitate reassembly and a detailed installation manual complete with bike-specific setup data to take the guesswork out of the whole procedure.
All the Hyperpro components include a lifetime spring warranty, while the shock body comes with five year’s coverage. And for rider’s looking forward to more performance-oriented suspension upgrades, watch this space, as EPM Performance has more Street Boxes in the works, including high performance and race kits coming soon.
