has a new quickshifter for sale especially made for Supermoto models.
The Quickshifter works by measuring the force applied to the gear lever and automatically shifts gears when the rider initiates a shift. This means perfect and instant gear changes at any throttle position without hutting off the gas or using the clutch every time, resulting in listering starts as well as easy and instant shifts during the race, giving you an edge on every gear shift. See Supermotodaz for models available, more models are being manufactured at the moment so if yours is not shown please e-mail Supermotodaz
