German adventure and touring motorcycle accessories company Touratech has always worked closely with countryman BMW to release accessories alongside new models.
Now it seems they are also working very closely with the Italians and the Japanese.
While the wraps were coming off the new Ducati Multistrada 120 Enduro, Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 and Flat Track Pro as well as Honda’s CRF 1000 L Africa Twin at the recent ECIMA motorcycle show in Milan, Touratech was also unveiling their range of adventure accessories for the bikes.
The launch of the Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro is significant as it is the Italian’s first serious adventure bike.
It features a big 19-inch front wheel, 120/70 and 170/60 tubeless tyres, 19 and 17-inch spoked wheels, more rugged bodywork, bigger front fender, aluminium side covers, higher exhaust, off-road footpegs and a 30-litre tank with up to 450km range.
The launch also marks an extended OEM partnership between the Italians and the Germans called “Ducati Performance by Touratech”.
As a Ducati OEM partner for the previous model, Touratech created an enduro package with various guards and their comfort seats have been available for the Multistrada exclusively from Ducati dealers.
To make the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro even better suited to off-road and adventure riding, Touratech supplies the original equipment crash bars, oil cooler guards, sat-nav brackets, topboxes and 45-litre aluminium panniers.
They also offer a few extras of their own, including an ABS sensor guard, oil filler plugs in various colours, a handlebar riser, long-distance foot pegs and more.
Touratech parts for the Multistrada 1200 Enduro and Scramblers were tested in advance on an adventure ride by Touratech CEO Herbert Schwarz and his wife Ramona in Albania, with the support of Ducati, even before the official presentation.

Meanwhile, they have also developed parts for the CRF 1000 L Africa Twin even before it hits the showroom floors in January 2016.
Special custom parts for the reborn cult bike include hard and soft luggagesystems, GPS mounting adapter, long-distance foot pegs, handlebar risers, stainless steel crash bars and engine crash bar, side stand base extension, hand protectors, headlight protector, auxiliary lights and a range of seats.
