Field-Tested in the Harshest Conditions: New Touratech Skid Plates

Products that cope with tough racing and off-road conditions are certainly fit for everyday use. This is the reason why Touratech tends to test new products in rally and enduro events before putting them on the market. New Touratech skid plates

Good examples for field-tested accessories are the new “Rallye” and “Rally Extreme” skid plates which combine modern production techniques with a unique design for the best possible protection of the entire engine area. In the toughest test conditions, the “Rally Extreme” version demonstrated its qualities on the Touratech Africa Twin RR, the winning bike in the 2016 Hellas Rallye in Greece.

The unique design of the 4 mm thick aluminium part guarantees effective protection and high stability and gives the bike a sporty, modern look. Thanks to a new deep-draw manufacturing process, there are no disturbing welds, which are often considered to be a vulnerable point. The recesses on the underside provide the shock absorbing and lightweight aluminium with a robust stiffness. And as well as that, the two parallel recesses allow the bike to almost glide over obstacles. This way, the energy of the impact is effectively dissipated, preventing jamming or snagging.

The “Rallye” skid plate is available in anodized black and bare aluminum finishes for the Honda Africa Twin CRF 1000L and soon also for the BMW R 1200 GS (LC) / Adventure (LC) and the KTM models 1050 Adventure, 1190 Adventure / R und 1290 Super Adventure.
For the Africa Twin Touratech has two sizes; the standard size also works with DCT or standard bikes with crash bars installed while the larger Extreme version for manual transmission bikes has increased coverage area eliminating the need for lower crash bars. It is designed to withstand really tough use with the lowest possible weight.
