Development of KADSTM, an electronically controlled suspension system for motorcycles
KYB is announcing the launch of mass production for KADS,* an electronically controlled suspension system for motorcycles that integrates control technology and hydraulic technology. Its system introduces KYB’s original concept of the “Ground-Hook,” which provides the rider with a sensation of being grounded to the road (a feeling of security), just like a tire. This assists the driver’s skill, and contributes to high stability and controllability.
KADS is already scheduled to be installed in Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.’s TRACER 9 GT ABS model.
Going forward, KYB will continue our efforts to develop new products and propose systems that respond to a diverse range of customer demands.
*KADS: KYB Actimatic Damper System. “Actimatic” is a term that combines the words “active” and “automatic,” expressing the high maneuverability obtained through automatic adjustments.
