All questions we need and want answers for but we will have to wait until the bikes launch at the end of the year.

Touratech Takes the Kawasaki KLR 650 to the Next Level
Seattle, WA – (June 18, 2015) The Kawasaki KLR 650 is a bike that has a reputation as the “gateway drug” for the Adventure Motorcycle culture. Riders with a desire to ride dual-sport can pick one up at a price that’s lower than most entries in the segment and once they’re hooked, they move to a bigger bike and never look back.
Many riders however, develop a love for the durability, adaptability and dependability of the KLR and continue to ride them for years. With that in mind, Touratech recently acquired a 2015 KLR 650 and had staff member Aaron Jennings equip it from top to bottom, with parts designed in Germany specifically for it.
“I have always been curious about the KLR 650, since so many folks choose it for their travels,” said Jennings. “It was great to spend a little time getting one all kitted out with our products. It’s an easy bike to work on, and its utility and performance are even better with upgraded suspension, protection and luggage.”
Touratech started the KLR upgrade with the suspension system and worked out from there, including a skid plate, Zega Mundo panniers and much more. When the build-out was finished the only thing left to do was ride it! Adventure filmmaker, Sterling Noren was on hand to record the testing and the result is a terrific video highlighting the good, the bad and the ugly of the KLR 650.
With a spectacular, desert backdrop, Touratech’s Paul Guillien and Iain Glynn put the bike through its paces over two days in scorching heat and through challenging terrain. They give an honest assessment of the KLR and its strengths and weaknesses and don’t pull any punches. This video gives a clear picture of what a KLR 650 (with a little help from Touratech) can do.
Essential accessories – BMW F800GS
The Smaller option to the BWM GS1200 comes in the form of the BMW F800GS. If you are the type of rider that prefers doing more offroad than motorway miles the 800GS is the bike for you, lighter and more nimble and with a power delivery more suited to off road. There are a wide range of accessories available for the F800GS that not only improve the ride but protect incase of an accident.
Sure, the GS already has a robust seat, however, as for our long-distance travel seats, we have also developed an optimised seat for sporty use. It offers total freedom of mobility and makes riding through terrain truly possible. The slip-free surface gives perfect riding comfort. Like all our seats, this seat is manufactured in Germany by hand.
This crash bar extension from Touratech makes expensive fairing damage a thing of the past. In particular, the extension protects the upper part of the fairing while also preventing damage to the radiator and forks.
The Touratech crash bar extension is made from strong stainless steel tubing with an electropolished surface finish. So if the extension is put to the test in a crash or fall, you don’t need to worry about scratches turning into unsightly rust patches.
Thanks to its robust design, the crash bar extension is also ideal when you need to grab hold of the bike – to pull it out of mud, for example.
In creating the F800GS, the developers at BMW have produced a motorbike that practically invites you take it on an off-road excursion. Our development team were able to make a number of further improvements to its positive off-road characteristics.
This engine guard is an absolute revolution!
Our headlight protector has been thoroughly tried and tested over the years – we’ve sold thousands. Even the biggest stones won’t be able to damage your headlight with this!
