March 13 2015.

It’s the heavyweight match the world has been waiting for: the dominant BMW S1000RR (updated for 2015) and the eagerly-awaited new challenger, the all-new Yamaha YZF-R1, and R&G has already kitted them both out with crash protection kit.

R&G got its hands on one of the first YZF-R1 machines in the country, along with the new BMW, to measure them up for their complete range of specialist equipment. Designed to improve the aesthetics of these two highly desirable machines and crucially keep them in good condition for when the inevitable happens, the still-growing catalogue of products for the two machines includes:

• Tail Tidy
• Front brake Carbon Lever Guard
• Engine Case Covers
• Engine Case Sliders
• Aero Crash Protectors (no drilling needed)
• Fork and Swingarm Protectors
• Exhaust Protectors
• Carbon Tank and Tail Sliders
• Bar End Sliders
• Radiator Guard (alloy and stainless)
• Oil Cooler Guard (alloy and stainless)
• R&G Boot Guard Kit (frame and swingarm)
• R&G Tank Traction Grips
• Cotton Reels and ‘Elevation Bobbins’ for paddock stands
• Frame and Mirror Blanking Plugs/Plates

The full listing for both machines (with pricing) can be accessed here;

BMW S1000RR: http://www.rg-racing.com/browseBike/BMW/S1000RR/2015.aspx  

The BMW S1000RR is renowned as one of the most popular machines for all levels of racing and trackdays, whilst early indications point to a similar role for the new YZF-R1; so this level of protection supports both circuit and road riders. As the official MCE British Superbike Crash Protection Supplier, R&G has recently strengthened its level of support for teams throughout the BSB paddock and also offers special discounts for ACU licence holders.

R&G UK Sales Manager Alan Garrett commented “We are all very proud to be closely associated with both the BSB Championship and some of the top teams within it. We have worked hard to bring our cutting-edge protection and styling products for these stunning new Superbikes.”
