RACE TECH for SPORT TOURING

Sport Touring bikes are known for mushy suspension, although fine in some situation; many times control is sacrificed. Race Tech can smooth out the jarring bumps allowing you to go more miles with less wear on your body. The real trick is improving firmness and control at the same time. This, along with increased traction and a consistent feel help keep you in control.
