Andreani USA to Offer Showa’s New 2023 Factory A-Kit Suspension for Honda CRF250/450 Motorcycles

Showa recently introduced the Factory A-Kit setup featuring advanced technology and high-end materials.

Andreani USA announced that the new Showa 2023 Factory A-Kit Suspension is now available to its network of powersports dealers. Showa, a leading manufacturer of suspension systems for motorcycles, recently introduced the Factory A-Kit setup featuring advanced technology and high-end materials that offer riders greater comfort, control and fine-tuning capabilities.

The 49-millimeter Dual Spring Forks of the new Showa Factory A-Kit Suspension feature enlarged internal cartridge cylinders that combine a 25-millimeter midvalve/rebound piston with a massive 39-millimeter compression piston for unbeatable performance. The large 49-millimeter Emerald-coated inner tubes and precision-machined internal parts with Kashima-coated outer tubes provide more durability and a smoother stroke. The CNC-machined billet aluminum axle lugs provide ultimate strength, control and precise steering capability.

Showa’s new A-Kit Shock boasts an oversized Emerald-coated 18-millimeter shaft and 50-millimeter Kashima-coated body, which offers much less friction and reduced heat build-up to avoid overheating and possible loss of damping. The unique materials, tighter tolerances and precise setup for the Showa A-Kit Shock offer a more stable and controlled ride, resulting in better performance for riders at the track.

“Honda riders are going to love the new Showa Factory A-Kit Suspension,” said Luciano Ubaldini, president of Andreani USA. “There are thousands of riders competing on Honda CRF 250 and 450 motorcycles right now, and this will be a big step up in their bike’s suspension — and hopefully their lap times — too.” 

Factory Honda HRC riders Chase Sexton and Tim Gajser have ridden with the new Showa Factory A-Kit suspension, both giving a thumbs up to the adjustability, comfort and performance of the new system. 

The New 2023 Showa Factory A-Kit suspension is available only for MY2021-23 Honda CRF250/450. Retail price is $7,500.00 for the kit, including springs.
