At EICMA, the international motorcycle show of shows, Öhlins, for the first time ever, revealed it’s top-secret big-bore WSB test bike, fitted with Öhlins suspension components, sensors and data acquisition. This high-spec, high-tech, unique MGC3 test machine is used for track testing important and innovative race and hypersports components by Öhlins Racing AB. Attracting much interest at the EICMA show, this beautifully formed yet brutally functional machine utilizes a Yamaha YZF-R1 engine, with World Superbike specification equipment and modifications. The French built machine occupied a place of pride at the front of the Öhlins busy stand, in stealth black and don’t-touch gold.
