The range of model-specific hand guard kits available from Australian hand guard specialist, Barkbusters, has expanded further, allowing riders to switch out OEM offerings for the best quality hand protection on the market.

With the release of new and exciting adventure motorcycles throughout the year, the market for quality parts and accessories for these machines continues to grow, with Barkbusters offering solutions for a variety of new models.

Many of the hand guards provided by motorcycle manufacturers as stock fitment are little more than a cosmetic afterthought, with Barkbusters applying its 35 years’ experience and expertise to set about designing an array of precision-engineered hand guards that offer unrivalled impact and weather protection.

Aside from the upgrade in quality, another big benefit for both riders is that the kits are interchangeable with Barkbusters’ modular range of plastics. This makes them an easy solution for stores with limited space, while allowing riders to tailor their hand guard to their own personal preference with the confidence that parts will be in stock.

Although there is a keen focus on specific adventure motorcycle models, a few hardware kits are universally designed to fit many street, dual-sport, trail and rally bikes.

Barkbusters CEO, Matthew Phillpott, is delighted by the reception that the model-specific hand guard kits have enjoyed.

Matthew Phillpott – Barkbusters CEO

“As riders ourselves, we are in constant contact with our fellow two-wheeled enthusiasts and it turns out that a lot of people are disappointed with the stock hand guards on their bikes. We’re constantly evolving the range to include new models, and because we carry out design, prototyping and production here at our facility in Australia, we can react quickly to demand. The feedback has been phenomenal, and it really demonstrates the importance of listening to the market.”
