Crash bars for 2018 Triumph 1200
« on: January 20, 2019, 02:15:22 AM »
Has anyone had any luck finding lower and upper crash bars for the 2018 triumph 1200?  Does anyone know if the same crash bars for earlier years will fit on the 2018?

Upper crash bars from Twisted throttle (sw motech) lower crash bars from Triumph. No need to guess, they have the correct fitting models.

Hey, Twigger. The OE Triumph case guard is as good as any for the big girl. I have SW Motech uppers on my Gen 1 TEX. I'm not sure if they're available yet for the Gen 3, but they should soon be if not. Pretty sure GEN 1 & Gen 2 bars can't be retrofitted to the new 1200.

Patience is your friend. The big Triumph is a popular ride. Accessory suppliers are gearing up... :821:

The front mounting points on the SW Motech crash bars are different for the GEN3

OK folks: I BOUGHT THEM FROM TWISTED THROTTLE AND INSTALLED THEM ON MY 2018 TEX XCX!  :211:

They exist - I guess nobody reads threads from top to bottom anymore. They've been in existence when I bought the bike in December 2018!  :156:  :745:

After the famous RTFM, I'd introduce the less known DAFS ;-)

If the engine mounts have not changed, then the Givi full crash bars will likely fit a 2018 T12. I have them on my gen1 TEX and they cover both upper and lower areas. Check with Givi for fitment.

Reason for different GEN3 SW Motech crash bars is not because the mounting points have changed  but the lower side fairings are different and blocking access

Hey Icy, love that colour on your XCx !. Is that Triumph's BRG or a special you picked out?
my Explorer XCx now lives in Tenerife
