Man, that's an awful lot of parts to take of for a center stand! Are the other brands like that as well? I've been looking at one of the Hepco & Becker's for my 2018 Versys.

The HB doesn't a longer rod(motor mount?) bo;t or an extra cross brace, a bit simpler design on the HB.

A caveat on the HB, the drive chain clearance is very tight. Nothing that some judiciuos work with a grinder can't cure as it is way over built.

Anyone have an idea on price? I couldn't find it on their site. The HB runs about $279. That farkle hurt a bit in the wallet.

Weird, mine fit just fine except for the already mentioned chain clearance issue.

A lotta beefy looking hardware, there...I wonder if those thick cross-brace bits can be used as rear mounts for a skid plate?

So while were waiting for the T-Rex stand let me ask a question has anyone tried a Hepco-Becker stand with Moto werk peg lowers I ask because a member stated the SW- Motech stand will not work with the peg lowers

On my '15 V650, I've fitted H&B CentreStand with the MotoWerk Peg Lowerers - no problems.
Interestingly, it's easier to lift the '15 onto the 'Stand than it was to lift my previous '10 onto an SW Motech Centrestand.

If I'm not mistaken, that center stand looks to be height-adjustable. Are those not height adjustment set screws on the legs of the stand???

This is exciting for those of us who've lowered the bike.

Maybe ,maybe not the video is of a prototype as of now they are trying to figure out how many parts would be interchangeable if they made one or two that fit all 2008-2018-still 6 to 8 weeks out but it will happen-they know about the stand interference and the chain rubbing on the stands out now-but not if their stand can be used with peg lowers-until I asked them to check that out-I'm excited to see how it comes out

Hallelujah! Here is their response...

Yes, It is height adjustable. It can lower up to 2.5" compare to the original height.

I've just bought this one. Still waiting for it to be delivered.

https://shop.constands.com/hauptstae...6-290604-0.htm

https://www.motea.com/en/hauptstande...tands-981995-0

I've ordered from Motea. Probably sending it for US it's expensive, and I don't if it will be tax charges, but, much more cheaper than the SW-Motech or Hepco & Becker.

Always ride safe and with style!

T-Rex is nearly ready for sale.

I've been at their shop for a couple hours the last two days getting the details worked out. It has no contact with kickstand, chain or anything.

I feel fortunate to be the first one on the road. Not sure when they will go on official sale but it's nice.

Not sure what the final price will be.
