Öhlins have announced a brand new Suspension Control Unit, or SCU, upgrade for the Ducati Multistrada S to give the machine semi-active suspension. Available for models equipped with OEM EC Suspension, the already highly acclaimed Adventure bike will gain even more comfort, grip and improved agility, as well as an extended adjustment range.
Able to be installed very quickly, the SCU can be simply fitted by removing the ECU under the seat and installing the ‘plug and play’ new unit. Loaded with smart algorithms, the SCU changes the suspension from a passive system to a semi-active system, giving the rider continuous benefits.
