Chassis RACE - first-class
Race use only!

Plug & Play front suspension lowering kit, for improved riding characteristics. 

If you have already invested time and money equipping your Vespa with upgraded suspension components and wish to further improve its behavior while riding, then look no further! These suspension lowering shock absorber mounting plates, from the SIP PERFORMANCE range, really do complete the task perfectly!

  • CNC machined aluminum.
  • Anodised black.
  • Available with either a 7mm or 17.5mm suspension lowering distance.

The design of these shock absorber adapters is strongly based on that of the ORIGINAL items, but our versions are individually CNC machined from sturdy aluminum alloy billet and then anodized in a fetching shade of black. When directly compared to the layout of the original part, our versions allow the shock absorber to be positioned either 17.5mm or just 7mm further towards the top mounting, shifting the scooter's front end closer to the ground.

The more minimal 7mm version is plug & play compatible with almost all currently available aftermarket shock absorber types for this scooter and can be mounted without further modifications.

If you prefer extreme conversion, you will definitely appreciate the advantages of the 17.5mm version. Due to its unique design, it is only compatible with shock absorbers produced by ZELIONI, RACING BROS, and the SIP types. All other currently available shock absorbers quickly display their limits and come into contact with the conversion mounting plate, making riding impossible. According to the make of the shock absorber chosen for use and its outer dimensions, the mudguard may require a little modification. A hole must then be cut to avoid collision between the shock absorber mounting and the edge of the mudguard.

What are the main advantages of a lowered front suspension?

These modified shock absorber mounting plates lower the front end of the scooter while also reducing the operation angle of the trailing-link suspension mechanism. This results in a lower center of gravity for the scooter and also a noticeably more relaxed shock absorber rebound action. This facilitates a much smoother suspension and also decidedly improves the directional stability at higher speeds.
