roadcrave... Enjoyed immensely an '01 R1100S for five years. Had the Showa suspension and it was excellent. Has been awhile since the bike was fitted with them so do not know a contact for you for additional information, but going to Google and searching would be the first thing I'd try.

Can also visit the very active community/forum for R1100S/R1200S riders at:

Most standard Ducati front suspensions are Showa. Pretty good. The higher end bikes come with Ohlins suspension which adds between $1,500 to $2,000 to the price of the bike.

I have the Showas on my Ducati. If and when I get real good at riding the bike, I may switch to Ohlins.
