partsLEADING Italian suspension engineer Bitubo has released details of a new upgrade and tuning kit for the notoriously demanding 2010 - 2013 Yamaha YZF 600 R.
Available individually or as a model-matched kit, the race-bred components are easy- install "plug and play" OE replacements according to Bitubo, and designed to improve stability, responsiveness and handling precision.

partsThe kit features Bitubo's ECH 29 replacement front fork cartridges, including the company's patented FPS (Full Pressure System) technology; their advanced design SSW steering damper, which features their patented coaxial pressurised chamber; their 'S' Fork Sliding Kit to decrease fork friction under braking; and the popular XXF31 hydraulic preload racing mono-shock that the company has been continuously developing since its introduction in 2008.
partsBitubo is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and throughout its history riders using their products have amassed an impressive history of race wins, podiums and titles; indeed the components in this YZF 600 R6 kit are the same ones as those used by Chaz Davies and Sam Lowes when winning World Supersport titles in 2011 and 2013 respectively.
Bitubo will be exhibiting at EICMA (the 'Milan Show') from November 5th to 10th - Hall 4, Stand E50.
