Touratech Makes the R1200GS Adventure Even Tougher

The factory BMW crash bars for the Water-Cooled R1200GS Adventure lack critical rear bracing. This design leaves the motorcycle’s magnesium valve cover vulnerable to damage from contact with the ground.

In a recent test done by Cycleworld the stock crash bar on the R1200GS Adventure flexed into the cylinder head and punched a hole in the valve cover, when the rider took a hard fall. (See Cycleworld, January 2015).

Touratech has addressed this problem by engineering the Factory Crash Bar Reinforcement Kit for the Water-Cooled R1200GS Adventure. This is a simple fix that can eliminate a critical failure.

These reinforcement bars brace the BMW factory crash bars directly to the water-boxer’s frame and they instantly increase the protection of the bike and give the rider peace of mind wherever their adventure takes them.

The Touratech Crash Bar Reinforcement Brace is made of strong, 25mm, electro-polished stainless steel tubing and is a perfect match for the stock bars. Touratech has produced a video that shows how quick and easy installation is!
