After a little research, I have discovered that Suntour introduced their indexing system in 1987, calling it "Accushift." I hear that Superbe Pro indexed shifters compared very favorably to high-end Shimano SIS systems, once the first few kinks were worked out. If anyone's interested, here are some informative sites:
