Suspension

OPTIMUM ON EVERY ROAD – PERFECT FOR EVERY RIDING STYLE.

Making motorcycles better, safer, and more fun to ride with innovative developments has been one of the BMW Motorrad core competences for decades. As one of the leaders in this technology, BMW Motorrad presents new solutions in quick succession that generally become indispensable in series motorcycles just a short time later.

As early as 1986, BMW Motorrad achieved a milestone in suspension technology by launching the paralever strut, an innovation that considerably improved rear suspension and the transfer of forces. In 1993, series production first saw the introduction of a front suspension system that operated independently of the rear, the so called telelever. Yet another revolutionary step in suspension technology was made in 2005, when the duolever of extreme torsional rigidity was launched for the front wheel.

Depending on the model family, the geometries of BMW Motorrad frames are consistently designed for active riding and ergonomics. Optimum on and off every road – perfect for every riding style: that is technology conceived by BMW Motorrad.
