New fairing for TE610 and others

After a few weeks testing, we are happy with our Prototype (shown here) and will be creating the tooling for the production versions. Unlike the previous models for the KLR, we decided on a 'steering' based fairing for lightness, simplicity & cost.

The fairing retains our commitment to facilitating a variable/ slide away screen (for off road), excellent lighting and a dash capable of housing GPS etc.

Unlike other fork mounted systems (which we don't like!), the Carbon fibre dash becomes part of the mounting structure, providing a veally solid, yet light mounting system.

We are particularly pleased with wind protection provided by the screen, despite being a smaller item than on our other fairings. Highway speeds of 90 mph with one hand on the handlebars is easy. We are also pleased that the additional size of the unit (over stock) doesn't increase steering 'feel' in the slow tight stuff.

The fairing will be available for most DS bikes including KTM's, BMW X-Challenge/Country, XL 650's, DR 650's etc and in various colors.

HID versions will also be available for those wanting even more light and/or have low output electrical systems.

Availability will be end of Aug for the Husky's, with other versions coming on stream in the fall.
