I was a bit skeptical on what changing shocks can do but a quick ride around town provided immediate improvements to the comfort, feel and handling even in the factory setting.
Those small vibrations felt on the handlebars when driving were gone. The bike felt a lot more compliant and it felt more confident in rougher roads such as small potholes and road imperfections. The scooter feels a bit more planted and the same time more comfortable. Its a bit expensive at around $450 for the front but I'm happy with the results especially for street use. I was initially considering Bitubos since they're a lot cheaper but I read here in MV that they stiffen up the already harsh ride of stock shocks so it was a no for me.
