Fine-tuning the ride with Matris suspension upgrades

Founded in 1980, Italian suspension specialist Matris is known for its advanced manufacturing techniques and use of advanced, high strength, lightweight materials.

 Fully adjustable rear shocks and hydraulic front fork kits for
Honda’s CRF 1000 ‘Africa Twin’

Seen here are new model-specific applications, starting with a rear shock and fork kit for Honda’s CRF 1000L AfricaTwin. Their multi-adjustable M46K-X rear shock features tuneable compression, rebound, stroke and spring preload using a flex-knob system; their F12R fork kit is complete with a fully adjustable hydraulic cartridge that also allows tuning the compression, rebound and spring preload, meaning that the two upgrades together give the CRF 1000 rider the maximum possible range and combination of suspension management options.

 Triumph options include fully adjustable rear shocks and hydraulic front fork kits for the Bonneville T120, Thruxton 1200 and Street Twin 900

Also seen here are options for several of Triumph’s best sellers - the Bonneville T120, the Thruxton 1200 and the Street Twin 900. 

Alberto Turcato (seen here at EICMA) told IDN that "Matris is embarked on a dynamic programme of new product and application introductions"

Matris offers fully adjustable, model-matched rear shock absorber sets - Twin Series M40D and M40KC, available chromed or black; FKE and FSE fork kit series (spring set and preload adjustment), and their newest, fully adjustable F15K series (compression, rebound, spring preload multi-adjustable hydraulic cartridge) to convert the conventional non-adjustable Bonneville fork into a fully-adjustable set-up with dedicated settings and spring rates, based on the weight of the driver/load.
