R&G Racing Products Press Release:
R&G has released a comprehensive range of damage protection products and styling bolt-ons for the new Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 Ninja.
A leader in motorcycle crash protection has acted quickly to get what will arguably be one of the most popular bikes for 2013 into its prototyping facility. The result is a full range of products that offer riders peace-of-mind protection.
The sizable list of protection products begins with the heavy duty Engine Case Covers and Carbon Engine Case Sliders, defending the vulnerable sides of the motor and the acclaimed Aero Crash Protector; fitted to the frame – these are designed to keep as much of the bike off the ground as possible in the event of a fall.
The teardrop-shaped ‘bungs’ or ‘mushrooms’, as they are often called, are constructed from high-density Polyethylene (HDPE) – developed to wear and not shatter – R&G also utilizes a special grade of bolts to help absorb an impact by bending, rather than snapping or twisting their mounting points on the bike.
With the fuel tank being one of the most expensive bodywork items to replace on a bike, R&G offers its Bar End Sliders that protrude longer than the stock items and work in a similar way to the Aero Crash Protectors.
R&G’s new Carbon Tank Sliders are also available for the new Ninja. Developed with the California Superbike School and used by R&G supported teams in the British Superbike Championship, these are a simple-to-fit, stylish shield for the fuel tank edges.
Further protection products available include Fork Protectors, Radiator Guards, Downpipe Grilles, Shocktube and the new Carbon Tail Sliders.
On the styling side, the R&G Tail Tidy drastically sharpens the rear of the bike by eliminating the bulky license plate hanger to restore the look that the designers originally intended.
