TOURATECH has announced a line of adventure accessories for the Kawasaki KLR650, one of the most popular bikes in the adventure motorcycle market.

To get around the fact that Kawasaki does not sell the KLR in Europe, Touratech-USA shipped a unit to the Touratech headquarters in Germany. This gave the Touratech engineering team a platform around which they could develop a new product range.

This new product lineup for the KLR includes a skid plate, headlight guard, throttle lock, tank bag, Zega Pro top case rack, Zega Pro pannier system.

Zega Pro pannier system
This complete Zega Pro pannier system is engineered specifically for the Kawasaki KLR650, and provides the ultimate in secure and dry storage for motorcycle travel.  When it comes to motorcycle luggage, nothing compares to the light weight and high-strength qualities of aluminum. Touratech is a leading manufacturer of aluminum motorcycle panniers.
The body and removable lid feature rounded lines with rugged corner protection that is easily replaceable. Low profile anchor loops provide a flat surface that makes the pannier a good seat at the campfire. Crafted with 1.5mm aluminum and welded/stainless steel rivet construction these sturdy panniers are available in 31-, 38- and 45-liter sizes. The system retails for $1,247.20 to $1,459.

Stainless Steel Headlight Guard
Give your KLR the adventure look while protecting the expensive headlight assembly with this stainless steel headlight guard. All it takes is one rock thrown from a faster moving motorcycle or car to crack the fragile headlight housing. Made of black powder-coated stainless steel, this headlight guard is precision laser-cut to fit a 2008 and newer Kawasaki KLR650. The extremely strong stainless steel grid pattern will deflect even the biggest rocks. MSRP is $81.70.

Skid Plate Engine Guard
Protect the vulnerable front and underside of your engine with this rugged KLR650 skid plate.
Precision made in Germany from 3mm thick aluminum and 2mm stainless steel plate, this engine guard will keep your KLR 650 safe from large rocks, stumps, or debris thrown from the front tire. Easy to install, this skid plate even has a cutout to allow draining of the engine oil.
The skid plate is reportedly easy to install using the supplied hardware and requires no modifications to the motorcycle. Retails for $130.80.

Zega Pro Top Case Rack
This stainless steel rack is designed specifically for the KLR650 and accepts any Rapid-Trap equipped Zega Pro topcase. Easy to install, no modifications to tail section necessary. All hardware is included in the kit. Retails for $196.30.
