Suits all years of liquid cooled R1200R/RS.
AvantGuard is a new kind of front end protection product for the R1200 R/RS designed to shield the painted engine, exhaust headers and surrounding surfaces from stone and splash abrasion damage over time.
The R and RS models' front fenders are very short, styled to look light and fast, but ineffective in containing road debris thrown back by the front tire. The front fenders are also very flexible - not stable enough to serve as a proper mount for a long fender extension. AvantGuard solves the problem by mounting to the engine/chassis behind the front fender.
AvantGuard covers the full height of the engine, 12.5" (325mm), mounting to two existing screws at the top, and to the bottom of the engine case via an aluminum bracket and M8 bolts. At its widest point, 11.5" (295mm) it partially overlaps the exhaust headers to reduce stone abrasion.
NOTE: LED Driving Lights from BMW, or aftermarket brands like Clearwater can be mounted with AvantGuard using the MaMo Light Bar kit. MaMo Light Bars are individual left and right sides that bolt to the frame and are satin finish powder coated steel.
BMW's one piece light bracket part #77 51 8 551 341 is not compatible with the AvantGuard. MaMo Light Bars are approx. 50% of the cost of BMW's bracket.
AvantGuard is injection molded 3mm thick nylon, the same tough, impact resistant material used by BMW for many of its parts. It has a fine matte black texture and its shape reflects the form of the engine and the R/RS's bodywork.
Fits the 2015~2016 R1200 R / RS (Liquid Cooled)
