NEW BIKE PROTECTION FROM R&G
21 January 2013 - R & G
Full range for 2013 Triumph Street Triple and Kawasaki ZX-6R 636
R&G has released a comprehensive range of damage protection products and styling bolt-ons for the new 2013 Triumph Street Triple and Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 Ninja.
The world leader in motorcycle crash protection has acted quickly to get what will arguably be two of the most popular bikes for 2013 into its prototyping facility. The result is 36 separate products to offer riders the peace-of-mind protection that R&G has been offering for 14 years and products to tweak the styling of these sporty middleweight machines.
The extensive list of protection leads with the heavy duty Engine Case Covers and Carbon Engine Case Sliders, defending the vulnerable sides of the supersport motors and the trusted Aero Crash Protector; fitted to the frame - these are designed to keep as much of the bike off the ground as possible in the event of a fall.
The teardrop-shaped ‘bungs’ are constructed from high-density Polyethylene (HDPE) - developed to wear and not shatter - R&G also utilises a particular grade of steel bolts to help absorb an impact by bending, rather than snapping or twisting their mounting points on the bike.
With the fuel tank being one of the most expensive bodywork items to replace on a bike, R&G offers its strong and light Bar End Sliders that protrude longer than the stock items and work in a similar way to the Aero Crash Protectors.
R&G’s new Carbon Tank Sliders are available for the Kawasaki and Triumph. Developed with the California Superbike School and used by R&G supported teams in British Superbikes, these are a simple-to-fit, stylish shield for the tank edges.
Further protection products available for the bikes include Fork Protectors, Radiator Guards, Downpipe Grilles, Shocktube and the new Carbon Tail Sliders.
On the styling side, the R&G Tail Tidy drastically sharpens the rear of both bikes by eliminating the bulky number/licence plate hanger to put these bikes back to how the designers originally intended.
For January 2013
