Largely just thick metal plates designed to take a beating, skidplates don’t really see a lot of innovation. Now Touratech has upped the game, by adding replaceable polyamide nylon sliders – important protection for bikes like the 2013 R1200GS that has no frame underneath the motor to protect it from hazards.
Touratech has set a new standard for engine protection with their line of Expedition Skid Plates. Built to withstand the rigors of a serious expedition or a wild weekend ride, Touratech’s Expedition Skid Plate features an ultra-strong stainless steel sub-mount, 4mm thick aluminum shell construction (with corrugated channels for extra strength) and replaceable polyamide nylon sliders.
The Expedition Skid Plate offers complete coverage for the engine and features a low-profile design maximizing ground clearance, while the nylon sliders protect bolt heads, absorb impact forces, and provide a sliding surface for conquering obstacles. Expedition Skid Plates are available for BMW’s water-cooled R1200GS, the 2013 and newer F800GS, and KTM’s new 1190 Adventure and Adventure R.
