weljo2001, I think you must have been looking at the wrong photo.
Jungmann1, I am also surprised at the price of these huggers. That's why I haven't bought one long ago. Especially after reading some other threads on here about fitting issues with certain huggers. I guess its the overhead cost of an injection mould vs the relatively small production run for each model.
I really like the look of the Evotech Radiator Grille. It's the first I've seen that looks cool and stealthy rather than stick out like a piece of tinsel on a Christmas tree.
Now then, the photo of the Evotech Radiator Grille on eBay clearly shows it on a ER-6, but says it's for both ER-6 or Versys, but weljo2001's photo clearly shows no upper mounting points, so is the Evotech really going to fit the Versys?
As for the hugger, (rant coming) I too feel they are quite expensive for what they are, especially when it appears to be an essential piece of kit in order to keep all the road crap away from the shock and all the other components back there. I mean, most other bikes have some kind of cover there as standard, but we Versys owners have to go out and buy an expensive after-market piece of kit. What's with that?
BTW, not all huggers are made from ABS. I've seen at least one that was made from fibreglass that I personally would avoid. It's heavy and brittle. It also only came painted with primer ready to be colour matched. What a hassle. Personally, I'd like a carbon fibre one, and I know Powerbronze has one, but I too am not keen on the mesh look, and besides they don't appear to have the carbon one for the Versys.
Anyway, if anyone else out there has found any other hugger, grille, and even fender extender options, I'll be watching this thread carefully.
P.S. weljo2001: what make/model is the rear stand you are using in your photo?
