Barkbuster Storm Hand Guards for the V-Strom offer superb weather protection like the factory hand guards fitted to the 1000cc V-Strom. And the 650 V-Stroms don't get any hand guards at all. In any event, the Suzuki factory hand guards have virtually no structural strength and offer no real crash protection for the rider's hands. In fact, they're all plastic, (no metal) and just snapped onto the bar end weights. On the other hand (pun intended) Barkbusters feature a super rugged alloy backbone and milled alloy bracket blocks for a fast, perfect installation on all V-Strom motorcycles WITH STOCK OEM HANDLEBARS.
This is an excellent upgrade for any 'Strom. These are the real deal, made only in Australia, Barkbusters. Black only. Sold of course, in pairs.
Please note: The current version of these herky hand guards do not retain the stock bar end weights unlike the earlier version shown on our Whitehorse Gear Super Strom. However the kit now DOES include bar end weights which will work with the V-Strom and these handguards/Barkbusters.
