re: "but first and foremost we're a business and therefore we're in racing to make a profit."

re: "Yes, for all our products that's some of the extra value you get, the testing, the data, the expertise, it's all there. Our engineers are very experienced suspension experts and our racing department is actually a pretty special bunch of people and that shows in the results they're able to achieve."

and there it is, just like I've said in the past. free lunch NOT served here. if you want results, best not to even look, just open the (check)... book.

The reason that bikes with Ohlins go so fast isn't really the hardware, it's the expertise and experience of their engineers. If you had a bike using Showa and brought it to them they could still make it go fast.
