About Techtronics / Background
Techtronics has been manufacturing Quickshifter Systems for race and track riding since 1998 and has worked successfully with many top teams and manufacturers. Factory Teams in MotoGP and WSB have used Techtronics equipment and our success on the track dates back to 2000 when we helped V&M and Dave Jefferies to achieve TT victories and lap records on the World's most demanding circuit. In 2010 & 2011 we helped NZ Suzuki Factory riders Andrew Stround & Craig Shirrifs with their quickshifting requirements. Andrew won the hard fought Tri Series & NZ Superbike Championships in 2010 & 2011.|
When you have supplied Factory Teams across the World like Virgin Yamaha, Erion Honda, Kawasaki Motors, WCM,Foggy Petronas Racing & Suzuki NZ and listen to the feedback that comes from riders such as Corser, Walker, Byrne, Rutter, Jefferies, Bostrum to name some of them, you develop and improve the product to provide the type of performance these riders need. The racetrack creates the ultimate test for our equipment and that has helped us to supply thousands of road riding enthusiasts over the years with the latest and what I consider the most effective systems on the market.
I spent a number of years racing in the 80ís, and was an active developer of go faster parts for my race bikes. My first race at Brands Hatch as a 17-year-old red jacket in the 250cc production race ended at the bottom of Paddock Bend after a seized engine caught me out, and the bike spat me over the top... My racing career ended on the same note, again at Brands, this time high siding a Spondon - Deltabox Yamaha TZ350G on the exit of clearways while taking the lead on the last lap. It definitely was not all crashes. In the 5 years I spent racing, two of them were as the Brands Hatch Yamaha Rider, riding the famous Number 0 machine for the circuit in the Champion of Brands Series. Having notched up a few victories at Brands Hatch over the years and having ridden at British Championship Level combined with my everyday riding allows me a complete understanding of the application as well as the product.
Techtronics is based in both New Zealand and the UK with the manufacturing process split between the two countries.
