I like the look of that better than the other brands’ I’ve seen...thanks for the heads-up, I’ll have to check in to that one.

Just found this on their website:
"Powerbronze International is a global company with an international dealer network penetrating the globe, allowing us to distribute our brand name throughout the World."

@Malcvtr - yours doesn't look as pointy as what they picture on their website, and appears to go much further forward towards the shock area as well (yours)... Do you have a model number or link?

Here's the listing I found:

Hi. Yes, here's the link:


Mine is for the R1250R. Maybe that's the difference? But the R1250R and the R1200R are so similar, I wonder if the one would fit the other?

Here's the product number for mine:

CARBON LOOK - 300-B111-080

Wow, that really, really looks nice...finishes off that back area very nicely, looks more OEM than the other hugger that seems to enjoy some popularity. How complicated was the installation...can someone who’s relatively unskilled mechanically and doesn’t own a torque wrench manage it, or...? Not me, mind you, asking for <ahem> a friend.

Haha. Yes, easy to install.

You have four M6 screws and nuts to attach the hugger to the bracket and another M6 screw to attach the bracket "arm" to the top of the hugger. There is a captive nut on the bracket arm.

You have to replace the caliper bolts with ones which are supplied in the kit. These have threaded holes in the ends to take the M6 mounting screws. The supplied bolts should be tightened to 24 NM, but I found the one I tightened by feel alone was snugged up to at least that figure, so a torque wrench is not really necessary.

I'm happy with the look and the mounting seems very sound.

Great, good to know — thank you. Going to give this one some very serious thought.

And to think I was about to bolt a GS hugger on to the three open holes on the final drive!

That's something I considered too, Mike, but the Powerbronze hugger protects a far greater area - including the top and body of the shock.

Most of the nuts and bolts mentioned in my description are simply to assemble the hugger off-bike. Probably takes five minutes. It's then a simple matter of taking each of the two caliper bolts (one at a time, not both together) and replacing with the supplied bolts. This takes another five minutes. Last job is to fit the hugger to the supplied bolts using the last two M6 screws supplied. It took me longer to find where I'd put my torque wrench than to do the complete job :D

Haha. Sorry about that - but not as sorry as I am about not being allowed to ride! Somewhere on the net (Puig website?) there's a wind tunnel image...

Yes. That's where I got mine from. Originally for the Australian Market, I believe, to comply with their regulations.
