Professional guard for engine and manifolds.
Multiply aligned indentations provide maximum stability on the 4 mm thick aluminum base. A sub-construction distributes the occurring forces with maximum efficiency. This makes the Touratech *Expedition* engine guard one of the strongest on the market. There is no restriction of ground clearance.
Plastic runners on the underside of the base make it easier to "glide" over stones, rocks or tree stumps. And almost incidentally they also prevent dirt build-up.
The 1290 Super Adventure engine guard is raised up so far at the front that any stones that are thrown up cannot damage the engine block.
