Wind Deflectors!
« on: October 12, 2012, 03:06:54 PM »
Afternoon guys  :001:

I've been on holiday and stuff, and it doesn't look like anyone here at PB let you know that we had started making wind deflectors for the Explorer!

You can see them here: http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/8908491/3902935/---TRIUMPH-TIGER-1200-EXPLORER-12.model - although making them in blue to match the screen and the bike means it's hard to see them in some shots  :087:

Great, but...

Are you guys going to make them on the lower sides, something like attached to OEM engine guards able to rotate and change the airflow in or away from legs, redirect flow from radiator out or bring fresh air in?...

Ok then. Since I have handguards, I fail to see how these could help me in the winter.
I'm with iExplorer: what we, all weather riders, need is a low deflector to make our legs less exposed to cold winds...

I'll pass it on but I have no idea what sort of reply I'm going to get.

Sorry Power, but damn  :005:

Ok, look good, what part of the body are they designed to remove from the air path, shoulders?

They fit in front of the handlebars. We started making them for the R1200 last year and people really liked them!

Looks like they keep the wind off your body, which in cold weather could be very useful.  Are the pics of the blue or electric blue deflectors?
So let it be written, so let it be done
