What other goodies are in the future?

Currently on the Rally Raid website there are 30 assorted items listed for the GS.
Other than the long awaited bash/engine guard, what else may be coming?
Cheers,
Rick

The first batch of 6 Adventure Engine Guards (all-welded steel tubing with welded in steel pan, in black powder-coat) are going on the website this week.
The second Extreme version will use the same tubular welded frame, but have a detachable 3mm aluminium belly pan and the steel frame will be satin chrome. These are being fabricated now, for testing next week.

These are supposed to be very similar to their guard that they have for the Honda CB500X.
Check their website and under the Hondas heading it is on page 3.
Mounted to the frame, not the engine.
Sump bash guard and engine guard in one piece.
Brilliant.

The Rally-Raid engine guard (pre-production version on my US bike, although the production ones look the same):



We took the decision to utilise the centre stand brackets for the rear mounting point (primarily for the same reasons as we did with the CB500X) - as it really is the most substantial point to mount the cradle - not least that you can support the full weight of the bike on the engine guard (for maintenance/removing wheels etc).

In addition, the GS version of the engine guard provides additional side case/water-pump and hose protection, plus protection to the bottom of the radiator on each side too. I imagine you could even mount some small LED driving lights in there if you wanted.

Ultimately we feel that on a bike that is intended to be used more regularly off-road (where you would require proper under-engine protection), the extra clutter and weight of a centre stand is not something you'd want to incorporate. Certainly from personal experience, the side stand hanging down the way it does already contacts the ground more often than you'd like.

To answer Rick's original question - you can expect to see soft-luggage side racks (that will also allow you to mount tool tubes on the inside face, and a Rotopax on outside should you wish), heavy-duty platform foot-pegs, and shorty billet adjustable brake and clutch levers in the coming weeks.

John is also working on a replacement and adjustable rear brake pedal assembly - something that is clearly a current weak-spot:



Plus a matching folding-tip gear shift lever is in the works too.

More soon as they say...
