+1 for the Givi, got ours from Motostorm.it. It does keep a lot of debris off the shock but not all!, At first I thought it was looked very plain and cheap
(it is!) but agree it is functional and un obtrusive. If you want a Carbon Fiber or high gloss product this will dissapoint you.I had actually considered painting mine...
The finish is in a "durable" satin/matt , I would prefer a slight texture or "depth" to the surface.Howeveras Bosnjo's image shows the hugger can be shined up with a suitable "shine" spray or product.
In anycase, you dont see the hugger when you're riding
AND the Givi IS very competitively priced
I am glad we bought one
I did notice the factory rubber flap that hangs down between the hugger and the shock might in time rub the hugger surface as the rear suspension compresses and spoil the hugger surface finish, I have forgotten to check ours-which we have ridden about ,4000 ks I,ll check it and see! The flap could be removed,trimmed or folded up out of the way as it is made redundant by the hugger.
