The Wunderlich Xtreme Hugger which is made for the R1200 S or so I am led to believe?
Can anyone please tell me if this will fit the RnineT as I am trying to get this style rear hugger for my bike as I really like it.
I have noticed some pictures of the Xtreme hugger on some 9t's but can't find where to get one from unless it is the same as the R1200 S?
Please can you help?
First photo is the Wunderlich Xtreme and the other is the Puig
I own a R1200S too. My Ilmberger hugger will work on either bike. I believe the Wunderlich will work on the R nineT ...same part number for both bikes.
Keep in mind that most huggers are designed to be used with a 190/50x17 or 180/55x17 tire. Any tire combo larger then this will cause a possible interference at high speeds, as the the tire grows due to centrifugal force. A few have had nasty crashes because of this...If you have plans to go with a larger tire or need more clearance for mud (Scrambler) then your only option is to get a hugger designed for the BMW HP2 sport.
Thanks for your advice MotoMike thats much appreciated!!
Regarding the two photos I take it you guys never played spot the difference before lol.
Basically the on Puig photo the hugger has more of a straight curve from the tip to rear as with the Wunderlich Xtreme it has a more broken up curve look to it........here's another photo
Yeah I noticed that. The Wunderlich shows a painted version that doesn't have the break....
So here is the deal. If you order a hugger for the older bike you will get the break in the fender that was done to give clearance for the older R1200 passenger pegs and pannier mounts. If you order the newer painted version specific for the NineT it won't have the break built in as the rear pegs are different.
Wunderlich do a lot of their own parts, but they also rebrand other manufacturers parts by agreement.
Ducati for example, have their own range of tank bags that clip on to the filler surround.
They are actually made by Givi and just rebranded.
The most interesting one is Akropovic.
BMW buy them in, alter the logo design slightly and hike the price.
They are in fact identical to the one's you would buy from someone like M&P for less money.
