Hello to our most esteemed customers and friends!
We are very excited to be launching this webstore with the cooperation and support of our friend Geoff Lowe of Proven Products LTD in Australia - the fine folks that bring us the excellent Ikon suspension products we have used for years.
A bit of background for you - about 15 years ago the fabled Dutch suspension company Koni BV made a business decision to exit the motorcycle shock absorber market, preferring to focus their resources on their equally excellent automotive products. Howls of anguish were heard the world 'round, as Koni was well established by then as one of the top-performing shocks, and a favorite of discerning motorcyclists worldwide.
"Not so fast!" said Geoff, and after a bit of discussion and collaboration, Koni's motorcycle technology was passed along to Geoff's company Proven Products, and with a quick scrambling of the letters K-O-N-I, Ikon shocks were born in New South Wales, Australia, where the shocks are manufactured today.
The DNA of the legendary Koni shock can be directly traced to the current lineup of Ikon shocks, and in fact quite a lot of the components of the flagship 7610 and 76 series shocks can be utilized to service the older Koni shock absorbers.
In these past 15 years Ikon continued to expand product development to include 6 distinct lines of motorcycle shock absorbers that fit literally hundreds of motorcycles manufactured during the last 75 years, plus repair parts, fork springs, and more.
To say we are delighted to be representing Ikon in the USA would be an understatement. We've used their excellent products on several of our motorcycles and they are right in the sweet spot of performance, style, and value, and an excellent choice. Being rebuildable and customizable as they are, they also go a long way to preserving customers' investment in their upgraded suspension, and that really appeals to us too.
And with that we're off and running! Thank you as always for your kind support of our business, it's greatly appreciated.
