The article provides information on the air-spring rear suspension of the BMW 1200GS HP2 automobile. The air suspension has springing and damping capabilities. A natural progression in spring rate with increased internal temperature is one of the advantages of the unit. The air-spring has three interconnected chambers such as one which is located above the piston.
