09 accessories on 012 model
The 0'12 wee finally landed in Aussie Dealers and I did a side by side comparo with the old models dimensions. Careful inspection reveals much that is similar in terms of frame & mounting points - which means many of the accessories from the old model should transfer with little or no modification. I've got over $2K of add ons so I'm hoping that Givi pannier racks will bolt straight on, I can swap in my crash protection, bash plate, (not sure about rad guard as this is changed)... I even think the Madstad adj windscreen mounts will go in (maybe with a subtle adaptor plate), allowing the bigger screen. The top triple grips have changed but risers are fairly universal for this model, and the Rox ones especially. Even the hand protectors may be compatible.
I can't wait to get one and start bolting on stuff.
