Hopefully they don't mess with the quality or pricing.

Rarely do mergers / acquisitions result in an improved product. Probably have another year or so before anything happens...

Yeah, they'll gut the quality like Techtronic gutted the tool companies. I bet they'll cut quality to become the defacto "R" suspension on most stock bikes.

I can't see it getting more expensive. I already know several people who have gone with other shock manufacturers for less money. Ohlins does make a good product, but in a lot of cases they seem to be beyond the point of diminishing returns.

Hopefully they don't start to perform like Rancho.

This is something I have wondered. That said, i don't think stock equipment is designed for the rigors of a fast racer. Even a fast amateur.

Yet I know of one expert racer who turned their fastest laps on a stock suspension after years of running Ohlins.
