PRO GuIDe Matris scooter twin shock options Italian suspension specialist Matris has two new scooter suspension options - the new standard twin shock model (M40S) and Race model (M40SR). Excepting for established maxi-scooter applications (such as the TMAX, XADV and AK550 that have already been in production for some time), this is the first entry into the mainstream of the scooter market for Matris, and the company says it is a direct response to dealer requests. The programme sees the company introducing a specific line of twin shocks designed to fit Honda SH 125/150/300, Yamaha XMax 300/400 and Piaggio Honda SH 300 Beverly 300/350. “All the new products are made and assembled using the usual high level and quality materials and components that we are known for,“ says company Co-Owner Alberto Turcato. “These are not just a replacement for the factory shock absorbers but offer a serious improvement over the OEM set-up with improved response and handling.” The shocks are 40 mm diameter fitments with 40 mm hydraulic unit-piston diameter, 14 mm chromed piston shaft diameter, adjustable rebound and preload on the standard replacement with compression, rebound and preload adjustment on the performance model.
