A good Enduro should always
have solid engine protection too. You can confidently dispose of the
original plastic elements from BMW, now there are aluminum alternative
from BMW and Wunderlich. Both fundamentally solid constructions that
sufficiently protect the engine and the front manifold area. The BMW
version fits a little higher on the front, while the Wunderlich version
comes with an additional support frame that helps prevent the thread in
the engine block being torn off in the event of heavy contact with the
ground. Anyone wanting greater protection can also cover the manifold
(Wunderlich manifold protection) and/or mount the center stand
protection plate (Wunderlich).
We've now adapted our tried and tested Dakar engine protection for the R 1200 GS for the R nineT too. Protection that really protects the engine, manifold and collector.
The facts about the Wunderlich Dakar engine protection:
On the pistes of Agadir, Qatar, the Erzberg track as well as lots of other tracks and extreme tests, this engine protection skidplate had to prove itself through the toughest challenges. In addition to the win in stability and safety, the R nineT also now comes with a new, more impressive look.
