At JRi headquarters, an experienced team of engineers and technicians with the ability to take a project from concept to creation works under one roof.  The team has made big advancements in bio-mechanicals and even developed a smart phone adjustable shock system. The North Carolina company makes shocks for Aprillia, BMW, Buell, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Homda, Indian, Kawasaki, KTM. Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha.
