Well poop

Was getting ready to order the SW Motech Engine Guards from Twisted Throttle for my 2011 Versys.

Apparently the price went up. They are now 209$. So much for ordering the crash guards this month.

Maybe I'll re-evaluate my choice and choose a different brand if I'm going to lay 200$ down.

I have a 2010 and need to do the same. I work with steel and if I had the time I would weld us up some, and put some personality into them! I just don't have time. Its all in the fitting of the pipe. Five dollars in steel if that!
I'm with you on this one!!

Looks like they brought them more in line with the HB engine guards.

New they are running 214...

So looks like it runs as follows:

HB 214
SW Motech 209
Givi 179 - I just don't see how these offer that much protection
Off brand from some ecrater site is 179 - not to sure about that

Oh well. I'm just curious why the 40$ price jump. I'm sure it has something to do with the materials.

I was going to build some but came across these last week. Had them in 3 days. Already on my bike.
