German BMW specialist Wunderlich has developed a rear mudguard and hugger for the liquid-cooled R1200 R and RS models, offering extra protection from grime, grit and water spray thrown up from the road
Although the R and RS come with a shock absorber guard as standard, both the mudguard and hugger tackle the problem of road-spray at the source.
Moulded in sturdy ABS plastic, finished to match the BMW’s other plastic surfaces, the Xtreme Rear Mudguard helps stop water and debris from being thrown onto the shock absorber, battery, exhaust system and exhaust flap mechanism.
It also helps stop crud being thrown onto the pillion and riders legs, keeping the under seat area and subframe cleaner.
There’s no drilling, cutting or fiddly fitting kits required; the Xtreme Rear Mudguard attaches to existing points on the bike’s Paralever strut and brake calliper, with a precision-cut, cast aluminium support bracket. Installation is simple and the hardware needed is included.
The Xtreme Rear Mudguard fits the R1200R/RS LC 2015-on and is available from Wunderlich’s exclusive UK distributor Nippy Normans at £159 (including VAT).
Also from Wunderlich, the Ilmberger Carbon Fibre Hugger fits all model years of the R1200R LC and RS LC.
Offering coverage of the rear suspension, subframe and exhausts, it’s made from a special Carbon/Kevlar composite with a highly durable and scratch-resistant clear gloss finish.
Quick and easy to mount, it fastens directly to the rear bevel drive, without the need for cutting or drilling.
