Motorcycle and Automotive Products

 

Motorcycle Suspension:

VMP Motorsport has invested in excellent facilities to build, service and fit motorcycle suspension. Our Ohlins factory trained technicians are top class and we are constantly updating our knowledge to be at the forefront of technology.  We are always making sure that our stock is representative of the motorcycle market in South Africa and this includes rear shocks, forks and springs.  If we do not have the item/s in stock and they are available from Ohlins Racing AB we can have them delivered to you with 14 to 21 days.

Design and Build:
VMP Motorsport can work closely with clients on special build projects such as race teams and special road projects and we are able to build any shock to any specification.

Test and Development Support:
We aim to have a fully mobile technical support vehicle equipped with the latest equipment to enable us to offer race track support in the near future. For teams wishing to get the very best out of their suspension this facility will be available at a very reasonable cost.

Race:
It is true that nothing places more demands on components than racing. If you want to maintain that competitive edge it is critical that every component on the bike works to its maximum potential. There is no better starting point to ensure optimum handling and control than deploying an Ohlins racing suspension set-up supplied and configured by VMP Motorsport.  Also, at VMP Motorsport we can help to tailor your set-up for any situation and give friendly advice on how to adjust for different circumstances.

Road & Track:
There are many clients who have a bike that is track-ready but road legal. There are many products for this ever-expanding market.

Motocross:
When people think of motocross they don't necessarily think of changing suspension to improve performance. Actually, this is probably the most demanding type of bike suspension given the workout it takes during a race. If you want your wheels to stay in contact with the ground for the maximum amount of time, optimising grip and drive then shouldn't you give serious thought to improved suspension?  A new approach to the way shock absorbers work has been added to the Ohlins range for motocross and off-road. Intensive input in the field of R&D have resulted in new knowledge, understanding and functions of the latest MX suspension. Semi-works shocks are now available off the shelf.

Super Motard:
This is one of the most exciting types of motorcycle racing. If optimum performance is to be achieved on tarmac from a bike that essentially started life as an off road Motocross setup, then a Supermotard suspension setup by Ohlins, supplied and setup by Mick Gardener Racing is an ideal starting point.
