K-Tech Suspension Reaches Malaysian Shores
K-Tech Suspension, the leading motorcycle suspension manufacturer based in the UK, is now available in the Malaysian market through local distributor Kratos Motorsports Sdn Bhd.
This is the first time that K-Tech Suspension products are distributed in Southeast Asia. Although a “new” name here in Malaysia, the brand has been making waves in the UK and Europe over the last 16 years, priding itself on its stellar racing pedigree. Offering a wide variety of kits and parts, K-Tech is indeed ready to enable any rider to conquer the track, the open-road and the dirt.
Since its inception, much of the brand’s product research and development, manufacturing and testing are performed in-house in its facility located in Derbyshire, UK before being shipped out to its distributors worldwide. Furthermore, the British original equipment manufacturer (OEM) has also garnered an impressive reputation and track record in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) and the world-famous Isle of Man TT (IOMTT) road race, where K-Tech achieved a 100% podium record in all bike categories in the 2015 edition of the IOMTT. Notable users of K-Tech kits in these scenes include four-time BSB champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne, as well as legendary road racers such as John McGuinness, Michael Dunlop, Ian Hutchinson, Bruce Anstey and Guy Martin.
With the highly proven racing pedigree, it is easy to see how the K-Tech brand is able to produce a wide range of suspension kits and specialist componentry for a multitude of road bikes. These include superbikes, adventure sport, enduros, cruisers, classics and specially tailored customs. Its impressive range of suspension parts include the DDS Pro, DDS Lite and Razor-R rear shock absorbers, DDS, RDS, and IDS fork cartridge kits, flow control valves, as well as springs and SSK fork piston kits.
Besides that, other notable K-Tech kits include its Tracker fork cartridge kits, plus the Bullit and Razor/Razor Lite rear shock range, which offer high degrees of adjustability and customisation for those who demand it. From converting your bike’s stock limited/un-adjustable front forks into fully adjustable units, right up to fully custom setups, K-Tech’s covers a wide spectrum of bike types and rider demands.
Presently, Kratos Motorsports Sdn Bhd distributes the K-Tech brand exclusively in Malaysia. Like the specialist brand it carries, the local firm prides itself on its expertise and experiences in the local racing movement by offering an equal amount of special attention and treatment as its principal to customers. This commitment is borne out of their passion for the sport and for ensuring that every rider gets the maximum performance and comfort from their bikes by making sure that their suspension is tuned to each of their individual needs and preferences.
“It is indeed a privilege to be the first company in the South East Asian region to be appointed as an authorised distributor for K-Tech Suspension products, which is rated highly amongst international peers of such exceptional calibre. At Kratos Motorsports, we prioritise quality, performance and providing good specialist suspension support for our customers. The appointment of Kratos Motorsports as the authorised distributor in Malaysia is a recognition of our reputation as suspension specialists. This privilege also affirms our unwavering determination and aspiration to provide premium motorcycle products to an increasingly discerning motorcycle enthusiast community in Malaysia as well as the region.” says Keith Chia, Director of Operations and co-founder of Kratos Motorsports Sdn Bhd.
