Touratech Releases Expedition Skid Plates

Touratech Expedition Skid Plates for R1200GS, F800GS, 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R

Touratech has set a new standard for engine protection with its line of Expedition Skid Plates designed for BMW and KTM adventure motorcycles.

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. The skid plates retail for $329 – $449.
