The brand new and much sought after Yamaha Ténéré 700 has finally landed at bike shops around the world. Öhlins decided to tune up the rear suspension so you can maximize this adventure bikes performance. To do this, Öhlins suspension engineers have developed an STX 46 piggyback shock absorber with a remote spring preload adjuster. With both compression and rebound damping adjustment, you will be able to fine tune your ride experience.
If you want a lower set-up on gravel roads to improve stability or if you prefer a higher ride on tarmac roads to make the Ténéré 700 more agile that is easily changed with the remote preload adjuster. This feature also comes in handy when adding a passenger or luggage to the bike.
Tested thoroughly both on and off-road, the rear shock swallow’s everything from road vibrations and small bumps to bigger bumps and G outs, and is also very capable during off-road riding. With a great improvement in comfort, the shock absorber makes those long rides much more pleasant. And if you want to hit the back country and dirt tracks then this Öhlins damper will give you the confidence to go explore!
