Aftermarket accessories.
« on: February 19, 2012, 01:01:05 PM »

Does someone here on the forum have any kind of information regarding aftermarket accessories?

Not even Touratech representatives on the Gothenburg show gould give any information at all.
Going trough the current Touratech bible of 2012 and you find absolutely nothing..

I find this a bit confusing since they and other companies had loads of accessories for the Tiger 800/XC this time last year.

Is the release and information regarding the 1200 completely different than last years launch of the 800?
Is that affecting the suppliers of aftermarket accessories and/or limit their ability to develop/produce the same?
Or are there other ascpects to account for?

My patience is running out...I want to be able to preorder some goodies... :008:

To be serious - if I take a look at the Touratech catalogue from 2011 (released in january) all the bits and pieces for the 800 is there. If I am not mistaken the launch for that bike was about one month earlier than the upcoming Explorer...that would be late February 2011.

Even so, not a word on the Explorer parts... :187:

What is the hidden agenda... :150:

I was in the uk Touratech shop last week. I think as you said the 800 was released about a month earlier and so the new catalogue last year may have had the accessories printed in it. The guys I spoke to said that as soon as the bike was released their technicians would be working on the extras some of which may be useable from the 800.
However he said you need to keep an eye on the web as its too late for the catalogue to be updated.
Makes sense.
Carefree wherever you may be.

According to my order, 7947:- sek but I also got a 20% discount. :D

So I ended up paying - 6357:- sek for the Arrow can.

I wish the launch model had an Arrow pipe on, instead of tire pressure monitors. But I suppose that's where you gain ordering a standard bike and picking your own extras ?
