DUCATI MONSTER 796, 1100, 1100S Magnesium SSSarm Suspension



"MONSTER 1100"
"RAM MAGNESIUM SINGLE SIDED SWING ARM SUSPENSION"


The RAM Italia project for designing a sssarm in magnesium for the New MONSTER 1100 to replace the aluminum stock suspension started in the second half of 2009.
Scope of the project was making a drop fit magnesium suspension to be:
  1. identical to the aluminum stock suspension in terms of strength but
  2. longer by 12 mm. for improving road traction and stability and
  3. lighter then stock by 30% in terms of unsprung weight.

"FEW WORDS ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF UNSPRUNG WEIGHT OVER BIKE PERFORMANCE"
  • The law about the influence of unsprung weight over bike dynamic performance, which is defined by the absurd equation 1 equals 8, is known and globally accepted.
  • The concept is that by diminishing the unsprung mass of a bike suspension by 1 weight unit, such diminution will have an influence 8 times larger over the bike dynamic performance.
  • In other words, 1 Kg reduction to a suspension unsprung weight is dynamically equivalent to lightening the bike kerb weight by 8 Kg.
  • If you consider that the RAM magnesium sssarm for the MONSTER weighs only 3,500 grams, the unsprung weight decrease amounts to 1500 grams or 30%.
8 times 1500 grams corresponds to a lightening of 12 kilograms
  • Those of you who tried lightening the kerb weight of any bike have realized the importance of an improvement of 12 Kg that is immediately available by installing a RAM magnesium sssarm, an improvement added to others, like better traction and stability due to the RAM sssarm lengthening.
