Touratech Suspension Explore Rear Shock, Ducati Scrambler 2015-on
Make your Ducati Scrambler even more fun to ride with a Touratech rear shock that won't bottom-out as easily, inspires confidence while riding the twisties, and will allow you to carry luggage or a passenger.
The Touratech Explore Shock is over-built by design with heavy-duty materials, over-sized components, spring pre-load adjustment, and adjustable rebound damping that’s tuned for optimal performance.
Why do I need this?
Motorcycle Manufacturer’s Shocks - The stock shock found on a new motorcycle is designed to be inexpensive and fit the needs of the average 170lb rider with 15lbs of luggage. As a result, they often meet the minimum standard for function. The performance of a stock shock is typically not confidence inspiring. With heavy loads, stock suspension “bottoms out” easily and doesn’t have sufficient preload or damping adjustment range. They aren’t serviceable and, with heavy loads, are prone to blown-out seals and other failures. The rider often feels the bike is too spongy and doesn’t handle properly.
How is Touratech Suspension Different?
•Oversized 16mm high-strength shaft made of chrome-moly steel for maximum strength and durability.
•Cold forged 6082 T6 aluminum shock body machined to exacting standards offers high-strength and maximum heat dissipation.
•High-strength stainless steel bushings ensure the mounting points of the shock will go the distance.
•Low-friction seal with integrated Teflon back-up ring maximizes performance and extends the life of the shock.
•Adjustable preload to accommodate luggage or a passenger.
•Available in a range of spring rates to match the rider’s weight and requirements.
Key issues to consider when selecting a shock:
Aluminum Shock Body – Some manufacturers use a steel shock body to reduce cost. Touratech suspension uses cold-forged 6082 T6 aluminum for the shock body because it’s lightweight, strong and durable. It also dissipates heat 30% more effectively than steel, which results in more stable and predictable damping, delivering better handling and a smoother ride. A cooler shock will also have more consistent damping and a longer service life. This shock body is further protected with a high-quality black anodized finish inside and out.
Stainless Steel Bushings - While many aftermarket shocks use aluminum bushings where the shock mounts to the motorcycle, Touratech Suspension uses high-strength, non-corroding stainless steel. This creates a strong and rigid connection which is important for a loaded Ducati Scrambler. The stainless steel bushings protect against corrosion and seizing and offer low maintenance and longer life.
Low-Friction Seal – Our seals have a backbone that virtually eliminates friction interference on the damping activity. On other shocks, the seal deforms as damping pressure increases and causes stiction on the shaft. Touratech Suspension is equipped with a proprietary low-friction seal that is supported by a Teflon back-up ring. This Teflon backbone keeps the seal from deforming and eliminates stiction on the shaft even at high pressures. The result is better performance, increased reliability and longer service life, even in harsh environments.
Oversized high-strength shaft – While most manufacturers use a 14mm carbon steel shaft, Touratech suspension uses a 16mm high-strength chrome-moly steel alloy.
Adjustable Rebound Damping – Right out of the box, this shock is ready for adventure with its rebound damping levels set for a Ducati Scrambler. The rebound damping is also fully adjustable so the ride can be customized to your preferences.
Custom Springs – Touratech Suspension is available in a range of spring rates so we can ensure your shock has the proper spring for your intended use and rider profile.
Fully Serviceable – All Touratech Suspension is fully serviceable and can be customized or re-built by Touratech-USA or any certified Touratech suspension technician.
