New Skid plate from SW-Motech

I was looking for Versys accessories on Twisted Throttle and came across this http://www.twistedthrottle.com/sw-mo...versys-1000-12

Do you think it will fit the 650 and the 1000?

Not likely to fit the 650 as the frame and engine are different. Even the plastics up front on the 650 are different.

It looks like it fits the 1000s, NOT the 650s.

You can use the belly pan from the ER6-N to cover the the gap. Replaces the lower covers on the Versys. Not a bash guard, more of a splash guard.

Thanks for the tip. I was looking for some metal plate/skid plate that works together with the existing lower covers and from the looks of it there's nothing out there.
The weird part is I came across the first metioned skid plate while looking for versys 650 accessories on the Twister throttle, not 1000.
