R&G has introduced a diverse range of protection, styling and comfort-increasing products for the BMW S1000R.
The British firm currently offers 24 different items for the super naked machine, which is based heavily on the fully faired and class-leading S1000RR, with the offering scheduled to increase. As the world leader in motorcycle protection products, R&G has more than got the BMW covered from top to bottom. Even better; nothing available for the S1000R requires specialist knowledge or tools to fit.
The defence begins with the Company’s award-winning Aero Crash Protectors(£159.99) and its British Superbike and AMA-approved Engine Case Covers, available separately (from £47.99) or as four-piece kit (£229.99) to save riders further money.Engine Case Sliders (from £42.99) are a heavy-duty alternative to the second-skin ECCs and the Radiator Guard (from £66.99) and Oil Cooler Guard (from £40.99) – available in either tough stainless steel or lightweight aluminium to protect the expensive cooling systems from stones or other road debris.
Bar End Sliders (£28.49) do a great job of reducing the chance of the hand controls and tank making contact with the ground in the event of a drop but, for absolute peace of mind, the carbon fibre Tank Sliders (£TBA) with Dupont ™Kevlar®-reinforcement will guard the protruding tank edges.
Fork Protectors (£30.99) safeguard the bottom of the suspension and brake callipers, with Swingarm Protectors (£39.99) and Cotton Reels (from £19.99) doing a similar job at the rear of the bike. The Shocktube® (£25.49) encases the rear shock to protect it from road crud and pitting from stone impacts. Its neoprene construction allows the shock to breathe and not overheat the shock and is also washable.
Other products available to increase comfort include fully Adjustable Rearsets (£375 – road or race shift) machined from solid aluminium, the R&G Eazi-Grip ™ Tank Traction Pads (£25.99) create more control and feel when cornering and Mirror Risers (£12.99) offer more view of what’s behind.
Protection when parking up is also provided by the recently-released Kickstand Shoe(£34.99), which greatly increases the footprint of the sidestand when parking on less than ideal surfaces, without affecting ground clearance.
