The list begins with the FSK 145 fork spring kit that is designed for small sports and street bikes. The kit is also used on motorcycles like the Yamaha R25/R3, Kawasaki Ninja 250/300R, Honda CBR 250/300R, Honda CB650F and the Kawasaki ER6N. The kit comprises replacement top cap and higher performance rate springs that are claimed to deliver improved handling, cornering and braking.

The rear suspension setup can be upgraded with either the RE 911 or the RE 912 units from the STX 36 Twin family. The rear springs are available in the emulsion, piggyback or hose versions and are suitable for cruiser and cafe racer motorcycles. The setup can be specified with different damping adjustment options with or without length adjustment.

The complete suspension upgrade will cost you a massive amount of money. The front spring kit retails for approximately €245, which roughly translates to INR 18,967*. The rear setup will set you back by €970, which comes to about INR 75,094*. The total cost is INR 94,061 – and that figure excludes the shipping, import and installation charges if you plan to deliver it to India.

The peak torque is also boosted by 3 Nm, while the revised redline sits at 12,000 rpm (15,000 rpm for race setup).
