When the Going Gets Tough: Touratech's Expedition Engine Guard

Posted on


For anybody who wants to ride their adventure bike off the beaten tracks, Touratech has developed an extremely robust engine protector, which will stand up to the toughest conditions.

The multiple-folded depressions in the robust aluminium baseplate ensure maximum stability. Thanks to an additional, lower stainless steel mounting plate on the engine, the force of an impact is distributed across the mounting points. In addition, the Expedition engine protector is provided with replaceable plastic slides, which completely cover the already recessed bolt heads and make it considerably easier to slide across stones or tree stumps. This allows you to enjoy off-road trips to their fullest, even when the going gets really tough.

The Expedition engine protector is available for the BMW F 700 GS, F 650 GS (twin), F 800 GS/Adventure, R 1200 GS (from 2013 on) and the KTM 1190 Adventure.

Touratech also offers an engine protector extension for the BMW R 1200 GS (from 2013 on), which is easily attached to the main centre stand and closes the gap between the engine protector and the rear wheel. Parts of the exhaust are also protected from dirt and flying stones. If you prefer an all-in-one solution, you can choose the Expedition engine protector XL option. It begins in front of the engine and leads back in a single piece almost to the real wheel, even protecting the catalytic converter.
