Skidmarx has introduced a new screen and hugger designed for the BMW F800 S & ST twins.

The double bubble screen is manufactured from 4mm acrylic in the same UK factory as the company's screens supplied to top BSB teams, including Airwaves Ducati, Rizla Suzuki, MSS Kawasaki and Hydrex Honda. Like the original BMW item, it is thicker than regular after market screens and is designed to directly replace the factory item using the original mounting points and fasteners. Fitting a Skidmarx double bubble not only gives the bike an authentic racing appearance, it also provides the rider with an air pocket that makes riding at speed and over distance more comfortable. Owners can choose from clear, light or dark tints at the suggested selling price of £54.95 inc. VAT.

Matching headlight covers are also available, styled to follow the sculpted shape of the headlight unit and are held securely in place with Scotch Lock fixing pads, offering protection to valuable light units from stone chips and road debris for just £19.50.

The compact hugger is made from light GRP (fibreglass) and is supplied with a fitting kit that bolts onto existing mounting points on the swing arm. Skidmarx produce their huggers in black as standard, although other colour options are available on request. The BMW F800 hugger retails for £95.00 inc. VAT, with a carbon fibre version for £140.
