RICOR SHOCKS PARTNERS WITH SPEARS ENTERPRISES TO DEVELOP INTIMINATORS FOR SUZUKI SV650 RACING
LAS VEGAS, Nevada. — May 18, 2009 — Spears Enterprises, an industry leader in high performance and service of all Suzuki motorcycles, has joined forces with RICOR Racing Shocks, the world’s leading manufacturer of inertia-active suspension systems for street and off-road vehicles, and today announced a partnership to develop the Intiminator for SV650 Racing.
The partnership will see Spears Enterprises playing a significant role in testing the SV650 advancements of RICOR’s Intiminator, the first patented inertia-activated front fork shock absorber designed to fit motorcycles and the only product on the market that detects if the wheel is trying to move or if the chassis is trying to move, resulting in a more stable chassis and a faster wheel response over bumps.
Spears Enterprises will use years of research and development experience, gained while developing products specifically designed for the SV650, to help create the next-generation Intiminator.
"The Intiminator is an amazing item. This is the first product I have ever worked with that gives the racer/rider such confidence and allows them to concentrate on going faster," said Gregg Spears, owner of Spears Enterprises. "All of our test racers have won all of their races since changing over to the Intiminator and have set many new track records for their class."
"Spears Enterprises is a dominating player in the worldwide racing circuit and has championed the courses with its innovative approach to racing," said Brian Falter, owner and president of RICOR Racing Shocks. “Intiminators are becoming an increasingly prominent tool in track racing. This is one of Spears Enterprises racing strength, so this partnership is a logical fit.”
Spears Enterprises-sponsored rider David Raff has taken first place in his first 5 Intiminator-equipped races while at Buttonwillow, Infineon and Thunderhill raceways and has also set new track records for the 650 production class.
